    • 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”)

Reign the Earth (The Elementae, #1)The Rose and the Mask: A Beauty and the Beast RetellingThe Reach Between Worlds (The Arclight Saga #1)People Like Us (People Like Us, #1)Mean Streak

✅ Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen 
This one sounds great. I should try moving it up on my TBR. 

✅ The Rose and the Mask by Victoria Leybourne
How can I turn down a fairy tale retelling? I can’t! I’m not strong enough right now… plus it is on KU, so of course I just borrowed it. 🙄

✅ The Reach Between Worlds by C.M. Hayden
This sounds adventurous AND it is on KU. I already have 10 books borrowed… but hopefully I’ll read this soon. 

✅ People Like Us by Dana Mele
I really need to read more YA, especially more thrillers. This one has good ratings, so I’m keeping it on my list. 

✅ Mean Streak by Sandra Brown
Another thriller that sounds great. I’m so picky with them, so I can’t remove one that catches my interest so. 

Wow! I’m keeping all five! What a surprise and I’m so glad to be reminded of these. 


 The Highs 

A little over 30 adds this week. Not great but so many interesting books, even after I removed a few. Sooo many romances this week. Here are my top 15 adds! 

Do You Dare? (Truth And Dare Duet, #1)Guarding TemptationThe Consumption of Magic (Tales From Verania, #3)No Whisk No Reward (Donner Bakery, #3)Permanent Ink (Art & Soul, #1)

Nothing Special (Nothing Special, #1)Smart Tass (OHellNo, #1)Time of Our LivesClap When You LandRomantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley

  • Nothing Special by A.E. Via
  • Smart Tass by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff 
    This one was on my Amazon wishlist for a while, but I took it off my TBR because I read another book by this author and wasn’t impressed. But… I saw it was free and couldn’t say no. It sounds like it will be funny!
  • Time of Our Lives by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka
    I thought this was on my TBR already — it looks so cute!
  • Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo 
    Again, I thought this was already on my TBR! I have plans to read this ASAP. 
  • Romantic Outlaws by Charlotte Gordon
    Yes, nonfiction, but it was talked about in one of the books I’m reading and I’m curious about it. 

The Hunter (Boston Belles, #1)Upsy DaisyBorderline (The Arcadia Project, #1)If I Never Met YouFired Up (Fever Falls, #1)

  • The Hunter by L.J. Shen
  • Upsy Daisy by Chelsie Edwards
  • Borderline by Mishell Baker 
    Okay, I’m not a huge fan of parallel realities, but the fae is involved sooo I’m thinking it won’t be as science-y in the way I tend to dislike. 
  • If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane
    I’m seeing this book everywhere! It might actually be my next audiobook. 
  • Fired Up by Riley Hart 
    I need a book with a firefighter for a challenge and this one sounds great.

TBR Total: 1037 
Last week I was down one, I was sooo excited. This week? Up 17. SEVENTEEN! How?!

What’s new on your TBR you’re excited to read?
