TBR Lows & Highs | February 14, 2019


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!):

When Katie Met Cassidy by Camille Perri
I love f/f romances, but don’t read a lot of adult ones! This one has some mixed reviews, so I’m not sure if/when I’ll actually pick it up, but I’m really curious.

Spell on Wheels by Kate Leth, Megan Levens, & Marissa Louise
While clicking around on Goodreads, I stumbled upon this queer, feminist comic series about witches and I NEED TO READ IT.

Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren
I really enjoyed the audiobook versions of Autoboyography and Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating and want to listen/read more from Christina Lauren!

I Have the Right To: A High School Survivor’s Story of Sexual Assault, Justice, and Hope by Chessy Prout
I’ve put off reading this one, because I know it’ll be difficult to read, but it’s so important and I hope to read it someday.

Resilience edited by Amy Heart, Larissa Glasser, & Sugi Pyrrophyta
An own-voices anthology of trans writers, including poetry, essays, and short-stories. Sad that I haven’t heard of this before, and that it doesn’t have more reviews, so I’ll definitely have to pick it up!



Here’s what I’ve added to my TBR recently:

The Black Veins (Dead Magic #1) by Ashia Monet
Release date: July 17, 2019
An urban fantasy YA novel about diverse found family, with no romance (which is super refreshing in YA!). Fantasy isn’t normally my thing, but this book sounds kind of amazing, and the author is committed to centering queer voices of color.

My Life as an Ice Cream Sandwhich by Ibi Zoboi
Release date: August 27, 2019
Ibi Zoboi’s debut middle grade novel is set in 1980s Harlem and is about Ebony, a girl who loves outer space.

The Babysitters Coven by Kate Williams
Release date: September 17, 2019
Pitched as Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Babysitters Club mashed up, this YA novel sounds like it was literally written for me.

It’s a Whole Spiel edited by Katherine Locke & Laura Silverman
Release date: September 17, 2019
This is another one that’s actually been on my TBR for months, but finally had a cover reveal this week, which is even more amazing than I imagined. As a multiracial, queer, non-practicing Jew, I’m beyond excited for this diverse own-voices anthology full of Jewish protagonists.

Dear Sweet Pea by Julie Murphy
Release date: October 1, 2019
Julie Murphy’s new middle grade novel has been on my TBR since it was first released, but now that the cover was revealed just this week, I had to share it here! It’s about a fat 7th grader coping with her parents divorce, and the cover is amazing!
