TBR Lows & Highs #56

It’s Friday! Time for my favorite post of the week!! 


  • 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”)

Spymaster (The Dragon Corsairs, #1)Smart Tass (OHellNo, #1)Red Sister (Book of the Ancestor, #1)The Song of AchillesThe Diabolical Miss Hyde (Electric Empire, #1)

❌ Spymaster by Margaret Weis & Robert Krammes
I’m removing this one since some of the reviews say it drags and goes too deep into details.

❌ Smart Tass by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
I read another book by this author and really, really wasn’t a fan, so I think I’ll skip on this one.

✅ Red Sister by Mark Lawrence 
This one sounds so good! I just need to actually start it one day. 

✅ The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
This is one I go back and forth with. I think it will be great, but I’m rarely in the mood for beautifully worded books… if that makes sense? I love Greek Mythology though, so I’m keeping it for now. 

The Diabolical Miss Hyde by Viola Carr
Two of my GR friends have given this one a 2 star rating — even though it sounds super interesting, I’m not sure I’m willing to risk it.
