TBR Highs & Lows is a meme hosted by Destiny at Howling Libraries(one of my favorite book blogs!), where bloggers feature the books at the bottom of their TBRs (the “lows”) and highlight new additions to the list (the “highs”). Visit Howling Libraries for more info if you’re interested in participating!
Here’s some of the books at the bottom of my TBR (but that I still want to read!):
Star-Crossed by Barbara Dee
A coworker just told me about this adorable middle grade novel about a girl figuring out she is queer when she and her crush are cast in their 8th grade production of Romeo and Juliet.
Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins
I’ll be honest and say that when this book was previously titled The Royals, I hadn’t paid much attention to it, but after seeing the new illustrated cover (and the queer companion novel Her Royal Highness!) I immediately added it to my TBR.
After the End by Amy Plum
A girl living in a refuge after World War III has devastated the planet learns that her whole life has been a lie and there was never a war. Another recommendation from a coworker!
Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful by Arwen Elys Dayton
This YA sci-fi novel is a collection of stories exploring how far we’ll go to make the perfect human sounds so eerie and fascinating! I’m hoping to get to it eventually.
Sanity & Tallulah by Molly Brooks
This super cute graphic novel is about two best friends in space! And, there’s a three-headed kitten, so obviously I need to read it.
Here’s what I’ve added to my TBR recently:
All Is Fair by Dee Garretson
Release date: January 22, 2019
I don’t read much historical fiction, but this one’s from Swoon Reads, so you can bet I’m adding it to my TBR.
We Contain Multitudes by Sarah Henstra
Release date: May 14, 2019
This YA contemporary romance about two boys paired together as letter-writing partners in English class sounds like a perfect read-a-like for Autoboyography, which I adored!
Wild and Crooked by Leah Thomas
Release date: June 4, 2019
Two queer teens become friends despite a murder that once divided their families. I’m really interested to see how the author handles this story, since it sounds really complex and difficult to write about.
Ayesha At Last by Uzma Jalaluddin
Release date: June 4, 2019
A Pride and Prejudice retelling with a Muslim woman as the main character! I don’t read a lot of adult fiction but I’ve recently enjoyed diverse romance reads that center women of color.
No Big Deal by Beth Rutter
Release date: August 8, 2019
A YA contemporary about a proud feminist fat girl trying to maintain her identity. I love the cover & the fact that the author is a plus size fashion blogger!
