TBR Lows & Highs

TBR Lows & Highs #58

October 6, 2019

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

THRALL by Avon Gale & Roan Parrish!

Sadly, nobody voted last week! 🙁 So, this was the result of me setting Google’s RNG (random number generator) to choose between 1 and 5.

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!)

  • The Gladiator’s Downfall — Kristen Banet [adult fantasy/romance]
    • A 1,000+ old winged/horned/tailed former-slave-turned-gladiator Champion MC… she sounds so badass, I can’t help but need to read this.
  • Kings of the Wyld — Nicholas Eames [adult fantasy]
    • I swear, I’ve heard so many rave reviews for this series and it sounds SO GOOD! I don’t think I’ve ever really gotten to read about older, washed-up former warriors getting back together like this, and it just sounds awesome.
  • The Creeping — Alexandra Sirowy [YA horror]
    • I’ve been meaning to read this for ages and keep forgetting I have it. I just really dig creepy kid stories, you know?
  • Pestilence — Laura Thalassa [new adult fantasy/romance]
    • This series has reached the point of “I’ve hyped myself up so much for this that I’m terrified to actually READ it”. PLEASE MAKE ME READ THIS.
  • The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James — Ashley Herring Blake [MG contemporary]
    • I actually can’t believe I haven’t read this, given how much I love AHB’s queer girl stories?!

  • Black Leviathan — Bernd Perplies [adult fantasy]
    • DRAGONS 😍😍😍😍😍 Massive freakin’ dragons.
  • The Oddmire, Book 2: The Unready Queen — William Ritter [MG fantasy]

    What a difficult decision!! I’m honestly stuck between pestilence and the gladiators downfall……. I’ll go with Pestilence since it doesn’t really end on a cliffhanger like the other ones does.
    I also want to read Kings of the Wyld. For some reason I’m waiting for cold weather? I think I’ll be more interested and engaged if I’m curled under a blanket… maybe I’ll read it in November 🙂

    I vote for Pestelience! I read it last week and rated it 4 stars.

    so i didn’t know whether to vote for kings of the wyld or the might heart of sunny st james because i desperately want to read both but since YOU’RE desperate to read pestilence, i’m voting for that one!

    i’m umming and ahhing whether i want to read dig or not. it has such good reviews but i don’t know how i’ll do with king’s infamous brand of fabulism.

    I’m voting Pestilence, since you clearly need to read it. :p

  • Reply Brooklynne Michelle October 7, 2019 at 5:02 pm

    I’m going to be the odd one out but I vote for The Mighty Heart of Sunny St James as it’s the one on your list I most want to read!

  • Reply Jenna @ Falling Letters October 7, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    I think Pestilence has enough votes so I’m going to vote for my personal choice haha which is The Creeping.

    Kings of the Wyld! I’ve been wanting to read that one for ages too, so I’d definitely want to see your thoughts on it.
