✘✘✘ The Lows ✘✘✘
✅ 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? by Lylah James
- Guarding Temptation by Talia Hibbert
- The Consumption of Magic by TJ Klune
Goodness, I’m loving this series.
- No Whisk No Reward by Ellie Kay
The titles are great and the stories are oh so sweet.
- Permanent Ink by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn
- 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 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?!
