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!):
The Other Side: An Anthology of Queer Paranormal Romance edited by Melanie Gillman
Okay, seriously, how have I not read or heard of this before? It basically sounds like it was written just for me!
When You Ask Me Where I’m Going by Jasmin Kaur
This poetry collection, which came out a few months ago, has been compared to Rupi Kaur & Elizabeth Acevedo, which is pretty much all I needed to know to add it to my TBR!
Free Lunch by Rex Ogle
This middle grade memoir has gotten lots of buzz! I was a free lunch kid and am really interested to read this one.
Counting to Perfect by Suzanne LaFleur
A MG story about complicated family dynamics that sounds so compelling!
Witch, Please (Not Your Basic Witch #1) by A.J. Macey & Jarica James
I stumbled upon this paranormal poly romance novel set at a magical academy and it sounds kind of amazing!
Here’s what I’ve added to my TBR recently:
Saving Savannah by Tonya Bolden
