TBR Lows & Highs | April 4, 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!):

Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan
I have a copy of this YA sci-fi novel sitting on my shelf and just haven’t gotten to it yet! I’ve heard such good things and am hoping to read it eventually.

Buck: A Memoir by M.K. Asante
One of the teens in the Teen Book Club (nicknamed TBC: To Be Continued by the teens!) that I run at my library recommended this memoir to me. I love getting recommendations from teens, especially when it’s a book they’re super excited about!

Level Up by Cathy Yardley
Can I have all the nerdy girl romances please?

Divesmack by Demetra Brodsky
I’ve recently seen a few book bloggers & bookstagrammers I follow rave about this YA thriller and now I totally need to read it!

Signs of You by Emily France
I love books about grief, and this one has a bit of a mystery & paranormal twist, which sounds really interesting!


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

Rose, Interrupted by Patrice Lawrence
Release date: July 25, 2019
A YA contemporary about a teen girl and her sister adjusting to life after leaving a strict religious sect. This one sounds so interesting and I love the cover!

Here There Are Monsters by Amelinda Bérubé
Release date: August 1, 2019
I’m a total scaredy cat, but I’m trying to diversify my reading and am adding this spooky YA horror novel to my TBR! I’m sure I’ll end up reading this wrapped up in a million blankets with all the lights on.

Pet by Akwaeke Emezi
Release date: September 10, 2019
Honestly, I’m not even sure I understand what this book is about but the line “How do you save the world from monsters if no one will admit they exist?” and that cover is enough to make me add it to my TBR!

How to Be Remy Cameron by Julian Winters
Release date: September 10, 2019
This YA contemporary is about a queer teen trying to understand himself and reconcile the labels others have put on him, and the fact that there’s a dog on the cover makes me soooo happy.

Who Put This Song On? by Morgan Parker
Release date: September 24, 2019
An own-voices YA novel about a black girl searching for identity and dealing with depression AND it has a gorgeous illustrated cover? Why the heck is this book not getting more attention?!

What’s the most recent book you added to your TBR?

One thought on “TBR Lows & Highs | April 4, 2019

  1. I really liked Amelinda Bérubé’s previous book (though that one wasn’t too scary) so I have high hopes for Here There Are Monsters! And I read the synopsis for Pet and am still not sure what it’s about but sounds super interesting. Def going in my TBR! 😀
