    • 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”)

Darkest Night (Sons of Broad #1)La Belle Sauvage (The Book of Dust, #1)Married with Zombies (Living with the Dead, #1)The Surface BreaksGreen Rider (Green Rider, #1)

Darkest Night by Tara Thomas
It isn’t at any of my libraries, so I’ll have to say no to this one.

La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
Of course I’ll read this one! I mean… eventually…

Married With Zombies by Jesse Petersen
I heard this was a good audiobook, so I’ll keep it again. I also enjoy reading books about married couples and it sounds funny.

The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill
I’ve heard really good things about this book, even if I don’t see many reviews for it.

Green Rider by Kristen Britain
This sounds so magical and amazing! Why have I not read this one yet?


♛ The Highs ♛

I added… too many books this week. I’m actually in awe of how many I added. Over 60 books. How even?! I know some of these are because I entered giveaways, but yikes. I removed so, so many books, you have no idea and here I give you my top 10 adds from the week. 

A Villain for ChristmasTrack the Sun (Night Traveler, #1)The Capital (The Knight and the Necromancer #1)Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick (Zoey Ashe, #2)They Called Us Enemy

  • A Villain for Christmas by Alice Winters
    I have been loving the Alice Winters books I’ve been reading… this may be one of 4 of her books I added to my TBR this week. This one I’m saving from Christmas (maybe), but the others I might be devouring soon. 
  • Track the Sun by Becca Andre 
    She’s an animal trainer, but she has magic and is hiding from a shaman. Verra interesting. 
  • The Knight & The Necromancer by A.H. Lee
    Potentially enemies to lovers??? 
  • Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick by David Wong 
    The sequel I forgot I was waiting for, but am now totally hyped about!!
  • They Called Us Enemy by George Takei
    I thought this was on my TBR already…. anyhow, planning on reading this super soon.

Our Dreams at Dusk: Shimanami Tasogare, Vol. 2Home Before DarkWill & Patrick Wake Up Married serial, Episodes 1 - 6: Wake Up Married / Meet the Family Do the Holidays / Fight Their Feelings / Meet the Mob / Happy EndingFailed Princesses Vol. 1Unmasked by the Marquess (Regency Imposters, #1)

  • Our Dreams at Dusk, vol. 2 by Yuhki Kamatani
    The first volume was so good!
  • Home Before Dark by Riley Sager 
    The one book I read by this author was good and this one sounds creepily good.
  • Will & Patrick Wake Up Married by Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths
    This one sounds absolutely adorable. 
  • Failed Princesses, vol. 1 by Ajiichi
    Gosh this is another adorable sounding one that I hope is full of love, hope, and cuteness. 
  • Unmasked by the Marquess by Cat Sebastian 
    I keep telling myself I’m going to read this author — I don’t even know how many books of hers I have on my TBR. Also, I don’t know if I’ve read a book with a nonbinary character before so, wow this would be new for me. 

TBR TOTAL: 1085 
Last week my total was 1060, honestly I’d be more “how is this possible” had I not just brought my total DOWN from 1100+ going through them for my Highs. 

So, I’m really glad I go through my TBR every week to clean up books that I added on whims. 

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