TBR Lows & Highs | August 15, 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!):

In Your Shoes by Donna Gephart
An MG book about an unlikely friendship! I’ve heard great things about Donna Gephart’s books.

The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
I just had a coworker recommend this zombie dystopian novel that sounds super interesting!

Girl on the Block: A True Story of Coming of Age Behind the Counter by Jessica Wragg
A memoir about life as a female butcher. This sounds fascinating!

The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
The sequel to this YA romance will be out next year, so I’d love to pick this one up!

Not If I Can Help It by Carolyn Mackler
I LOVED Carolyn Mackler as a teen and somehow totally missed that fact that she had a new MG book out earlier this summer!



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

Give and Take by Elly Swartz
Release date: October 15, 2019
Can I just say how glad I am to see MG books about mental health? This one is about a 12 year old whose anxiety manifests in hoarding behavior.

What I Carry by Jennifer Longo
Release date: January 21, 2020
We definitely need more YA novels about foster care. This one deals with a girl about to age out of the foster system, and sounds so powerful!

Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed
Release date: February 4, 2020
If you’re not extremely excited for this cross-cultural YA romance from these two powerhouse authors, you need to reevaluate your choices.

The Regrets by Amy Bonnafons
Release date: February 4, 2020
“A love affair between the living and the dead” sounds like my jam!

Once Upon an Eid: Stories of Hope and Joy by 15 Muslim Voices edited by S.K. Ali & Aisha Saeed
Release date: May 5, 2020
I internally screamed when this cover was revealed! It’s absolutely stunning, and 100% a book that should be in every school and library.


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