TBR Lows & Highs

TBR Lows & Highs #62

November 3, 2019

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

AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir!

As promised, I’ll now add this book to my “top-TBR” shelf on Goodreads to remind me to read it soon!

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!)

  • The Doctor’s Secret — Heidi Cullinan [adult romance]
    • A forbidden doctor/nurse romance featuring a Taiwanese-American hero!
      ✨ Taiwanese rep, m/m rep ✨
  • Unf*ck Your Habitat — Rachel Hoffman [adult nonfic]
    • I’ve been meaning to read this self-help book for ages. I read some snippets of the stuff on the related blog and it’s HILARIOUS but also super call-you-out-on-your-shit, which I probably need.
  • New Ink on Life — Jennie Davids [adult romance]
    • A queer-lady romance between a tattoo shop owner and her new apprentice. 😍 Tattoos and ladies loving ladies? Gimme.
      ✨ f/f rep ✨
  • Never Never — Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher [NA romance/mystery]
    • I like both of these authors so I’m intrigued by the idea of them writing together, plus I haven’t read an amnesia romance in a long time…
  • A Wicked Kind of Husband — Mia Vincy [adult historical romance]
    • Two people who really don’t want any part of their arranged marriage to each other… we all know where this is going, and I need it in my life. Bring on the grouchy reluctant lovers. 😂
