TBR Lows & Highs #43

June 9, 2019

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

THE WITCH BOY by Molly Ostertag!

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”)

(books that are LOW on my TBR (BUT NOT BEING REMOVED)vote in the comments for which one I should move UP on my list and I’ll read it within 18 months!)

  • When August Ends — Penelope Ward
    • adult romance; I heard this was a super emotional age gap romance, so I’m intrigued!
  • Poison or Protect — Gail Carriger
    • adult steampunk/romance; lady assassins falling in love! Does anyone know if you need to read the main series before these novellas? 🤷‍♀️
  • Mammoth — Jill Baguchinsky
    • YA contemporary; I’m always looking for good STEM-girl rep and good fat rep!
  • Hildafolk — Luke Pearson
    • MG fantasy GN; a coworker read these and watched the show and enjoyed it
  • Stillhouse Lake — Rachel Caine
    • adult thriller; I think Sionna raved about this and it’s on KU so I’m kind of hoping it wins 😂

    My vote is for Still house Lake. Not only because it’s the one you hope wins but because I also have a copy and I’m curious to see what you think!

      Late reply but that’s okay! 😀 If you don’t know any of the lows you’re always welcome to just vote for something that looks or sounds interesting to you. I don’t know if I’ve told you that before, my comments are all over the place right now so if I have already said this just ignore me 😂😂😂😂😂

    Penelope Ward!!!! I haven’t read that one but love her others!)

    I read Stillhouse Lake for a group read and thought it was pretty good (‘pretty good’ as in I would read more by this author) and it sounds like you secretly want to read it too, so I will put my vote in for that!

    I vote Poison or Protect but you’re right, I have no idea if you have to read the main series before the novellas!

    Stillhouse Lake — Rachel Caine! I read this last year and enjoyed it.

    Hildafolk looks super cute so it gets my vote! Plus, I realize I know the name Luke Pearson from Soppy, which is one of the cutest comics I’ve read!
