TBR High & Lows #26

Welcome back to a snapshot of my TBR 🙂

  • 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”)


✘✘✘ The Lows ✘✘✘

Out of the Blues (Detective Sarah Alt, #1)

Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires, #1)

The Glass Gargoyle (The Lost Ancients #1)

Depravity (Beastly Tales, #1)

  • Out of the Blues by Trudy Nan Boyce
    I read a few pages of this, thanks to Amazon’s Look Inside feature. It…. isn’t bad, but I’m just not interested. I’ve been keeping it for the time I want to read a cop book, but those times don’t come up often, so I’ll drop this one.
  • Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
    This is one I read years ago and remember liking, but I never continued the series. I still want to give this one a try sooner or later.
  • Rend the Dark by Mark Gelineau & Joe King
    This one is actually on my Monthly TBR!
  • The Glass Gargoyle by Marie Andreas
    This one isn’t at any of my libraries, so I gotta remove it. I need to be more strict this time through the TBR.
  • Depravity by M.J. Haag
    Intrigued from the first page! I put a hold on it to read soon — it is short, so it won’t get in the way of my weekly & monthly TBRs too much. I’m so ready for this gritty The Beauty & The Beast retelling

❌ 2 removed!
✔ 2 to be read soon!

    8 in total from the amazing CJR The Brit! Thank you and I hope I get to read some of these soon!
  • Wolfsong by TJ Klune
    Another one I’m finally giving into reading. I need to see what the hype is about.
  • Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan
    So… Goodreads promoted Romance lists this week… the next few books I added from those lists.
  • Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison
  • Real by Katy Evans
  • Wallbanger by Alice Clayton
    Okay, four adds because of GR lists isn’t too bad. Plus, these four are all ones I’ve seen around before and have thought of adding.

Total: 702 — 21 up from last week. Just… ugh… my poor TBR will never recover haha.
If you made it this far: Thank you so much for sticking around! I’m sorry this post ended up so long! I’ll try to do better 🙂

What do you think I should read ASAP from my lows?
What do you think of my highs?

  1. Ooooh, so many great additions this week! You added a ton that I have on my TBR and want to get to soon (like Wolfsong, which I think is being added to Scribd next month, and if I’m remembering that right, I want to read it ASAP since I haven’t justified buying it yet due to my book ban). Also, I’m a little obsessed with that Cruel Fate cover? It reminds me of a really badass graphic novel haha!
