TBR Lows & Highs #29

The WINNER of last week’s “lows” vote was… *drumroll*

UGLY LOVE by Colleen Hoover!

As promised, I’ll now add this book to my “top-TBR” shelf on Goodreads to remind me to read it within the next 18 months.


  • Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
  • Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
  • Find 5-10 (or more, if you feel ambitious!) titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”)
    • ALTERNATIVE OPTION: Find 5+ titles that are at the BOTTOM of your TBR—books you want to read someday, just not right now!
  • Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation
  • Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending
  • List the last 5 (or more!) books you added to your TBR, with a synopsis or your brief summary of why you added it (the “highs”)


(books that are LOW on my TBR—vote in the comments for which one I should move UP on my list and I’ll read it within 18 months!)


I like doing mini blurbs, but I’m typing this post up at 4:30am Sunday morning after spending the entire night finishing my bookshelf organization, so this week, it’s just covers, genres, and links. I’m sorry. 😞

Which book from my “lows” do you think I should add to my “top-TBR” shelf?

      1. SAME 😂😂 I’m so glad I’m not alone, that’s hilarious. I have literally said that to people before, that I got burnt out during the Hunger Games craze (even though THG is one of my fave series of all time), and people are always like, “??? but that was… YEARS ago???” 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

  1. Oooh, I vote for Station Eleven! That was my last read of 2018 and I really enjoyed it! I don’t read a lot of sci-fi, but I thought it was really unique.

    And up til 4:30am? Dang girl, get some sleep! 😉


    1. Thank you! 🙂 I don’t read a ton of scifi either so that makes me happy to hear someone else who doesn’t reach for the genre much say they liked it a lot. And yeah… 😂 It’s funny because it’s 2:56am as I’m replying to this comment of yours! I’m a major night owl naturally and it’s really hard for me to stay on a good, steady sleep schedule. My sleep got all messed up with being sick last week and then all the re-organizing this weekend, so right now I’m actually trying to stay up all night tonight so that I can go right to bed at a normal time tomorrow night and fix my schedule before going back to work on Wednesday! It sounds crazy, I know, but it seems to be the only thing that works for me and I have to do it to “reset” myself about once every 2-3 months. 😂


      1. Holy crap. That does sound really bizarre. But I guess if it works, it works, right? Lol, I feel like if I tried to do something like that, I’d accidentally fall asleep during the middle of the day and make it worse.

        I hope this week is a lot better for you and that you begin to get lots of restful sleep! 🙂


      2. Thank you! Hahaha it really does sound weird but it seems to have worked! I did take 2 separate 15-minute power naps but I ended up making it until about 11:30pm last night and then slept like a rock until 8:30am this morning, and I’ve felt pretty good since then!

  2. I would vote for the fifth season, but tbh I haven’t read it hahah, but I’m excited for that one!



  3. Yeees, Bloom Into You! I just ordered some manga but not that one… I guess it’s for my next haul.

    I vote for The Fifth Season! It’s really fantastic. To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about it at first, but then I fell in love with it a few chapters in.


  4. I haven’t read The Fifth Season yet but it sounds amazing and has been getting a bit of hype this year. *coughs* maybe we should buddy-read it????
