TBR Lows & Highs #47

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

THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS by M.R. Carey!

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.

Rules:

  • Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
  • Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
  • Find 5 titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”) OR 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”)

    • adult mystery/thriller/romance; I’m so in love with this series ♥
  • Becoming the Dark Prince — Kerri Maniscalco
    • YA hist-fic; when I tell you I am COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS until this novella drops on my kindle…
  • Dark Rise — C.S. Pacat (2021)
    • YA fantasy; AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
  • Teach Me to Forget — Erica M. Chapman

  • Say You’ll Remember Me — Katie McGarry
    • YA contemporary; after being charged with a crime he didn’t commit, Drix gets a second chance through a new program rehabilitating young criminals and meets the governor’s daughter, who’s trying to learn to assert her own independence separate from her father’s title

  • Hearts, Heroes, and Heath Hall — Kasie West (february 2020)
    • YA contemporary; I’m such a sucker for this “series” (it really isn’t one, but they’re connected: Love, Life, and the List & Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss)
  • Thirteen Doorways, Wolves Behind Them All — Laura Ruby (october 2019)
    • YA hist-fic; 1) I am OBSESSED with this cover AND title; 2) I think this is about a girl’s ghost trying to keep her living sister safe during WWII?
  • Words We Don’t Say — K.J. Reilly
    • YA contemporary; after a traumatic incident, Joel doesn’t speak to most people, so he writes texts to them and never sends them
  • Cracked Up to Be — Courtney Summers (re-releasing february 2020)
    • YA contemporary; I loved Sadie enough that I really want to read more from this author, so I’m pumped for this re-release of her debut. It’s about a girl who’s gone from being the perfect high schooler to an alcoholic who’s failing her classes and has to be put on suicide watch, and nobody knows why.
  • The How & The Why — Cynthia Hand (november 2019)
    • YA contemporary/hist-fic; told through letters in the past and the present, we see both sides of a young girl who was put up for adoption as a child and her biological mother, years ago

  • Rules for Vanishing — Kate Alice Marshall (september 2019)
    • YA horror; I can’t possibly make this sound any better than the first paragraph of the GR synopsis already does: “In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister–at all costs.”
  • The Liar’s Daughter — Megan Cooley Peterson (september 2019)
    • YA contemporary; the daughter of a cult leader has been removed from her family, but she’s determined to get back to them no matter what.
  • Red Hood — Elana K. Arnold (february 2020)
    • YA fantasy; I loved Damsel and I am SO EXCITED for this! You best believe I sent in a request the freaking second I found out this was being released haha!
  • Chasing Graves — Ben Galley (kindle unlimited)
  • Untitled — Angie Thomas
    • YA contemporary; I mean, it’s Angie Thomas. 🤷‍♀️ And it takes place in Garden Heights, which reminds me that I still need to read On the Come Up!
