TBR Lows & Highs | August 8, 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!

Yikes, I’ve been super busy and haven’t posted in a loooong time! I’ve missed sharing my bookish thoughts and am trying to make time in my schedule again for regular blogging. What better way to get back into the swing of it than with TBR Highs & Lows, one of my favorite blog memes?!

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

Along for the Ride by Mimi Grace
Can we all just agree that road trip romances are the best? (And also illustrated covers.)

Secrets of the Casa Rosada by Alex Temblador
I love stories about meeting family you’ve never known!

Operatic by Kyo Maclear & Byron Eggenschwiler
A graphic novel about a girl discovering music and connecting with another musician. This looks super cute!

Parkland Speaks edited by Sarah Lerner
A compilation of works from survivors of the Parkland shooting. I know this’ll be a tough read, but as someone who works with teens, I feel that it’s a must-read for me.

Hex Vet #1 by Sam Davies
Okay, I LOVE graphic novels about witches and somehow I hadn’t heard of this one about veterinarian witches!

I’ve heard amazing things about Amina’s Voice and am so excited to read Hena’s new book! I just received an ARC and can’t wait to start it.

Black Girl Unlimited by Echo Brown

A YA memoir blending autobiography and magical realism. This sounds incredible and I adore the cover.

We definitely need more YA novels that deal with toxic masculinity, and I know I’ll definitely be purchasing this for my library.

Girls Save the World in This One by Ash Parsons
Release date: April 14, 2020
Shaun of the Dead meets Clueless in this hilarious YA horror comedy set at a local zombie convention”?! This book sounds like it was written specifically for me.

Running by Natalie Sylvester

This cover was just revealed and OMG. I love the concept of this YA contemporary about a girl realizing her father isn’t who she thought when he begins running for president.
