TBR Lows & Highs | June 6, 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!

I’ve been super busy lately so I haven’t posted a TBR Highs & Lows post in a while. So excited to be back sharing some titles I’m excited for!


Here’s some of the books at the bottom of my TBR (but that I still want to read!):

Welcome Home edited by Eric Smith
YA definitely needs more adoption and foster family rep, and this anthology is full of stories on that topic. I hadn’t heard of this one until recently!

The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo
A coworker recently told me about this historical middle grade book with a dose of magical realism, and it sounds so good!

Othergirl by Nicole Burnstein
I’d never heard of this YA book about two best friends, one with superpowers and the other without, but I can totally see the teens at my library loving this one!

I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I haven’t read this queer YA anthology yet because it’s right up my alley!

Crossplay by Niki Smith
Give me ALL the queer comics!



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

Stage Dreams by Melanie Gillman
Release date: September 3, 2019
I did not know I needed a queer western adventure comic until right now but I 100% do.

Every Other Weekend by Abigail Johnson
Release date: January 7, 2020
The words “unlikely friendship” will always make me immediately add a book to my TBR!

When You Were Everything by Ashley Woodfolk
Release date: March 10, 2020
I love books about friend breakups, and I’m obsessed with this cover! I enjoyed Ashley’s debut and can’t wait to read more from her!

By the Book: A Novel of Prose and Cons by Amanda Sellet
Release date: May 1, 2020
How can anyone look at the adorable bookish cover of this YA contemporary romance and not immediately want to read it?

All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson
Release date: 2020
This queer YA memoir doesn’t even have a release date but I had to talk about it because OH MY GOSH look at this cover!



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

  1. I haven’t done this in way too long! I am really looking forward to some of the fall YA fantasy ARCs that I have. I have a LOT of fall ARCs, so I will be starting them sooner than I probably should, but I’m also SO excited for some of them.
