TBR Lows and Highs #7

TBR Lows and Highs


  • 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

  1. The Welcome Home Garden Club (Twilight, Texas, #4) by Lori Wilde. I have a physical copy of this book which I am sure was given to me. I don’t actually have an interest in reading this.
  2. Fracture (Fracture, #1) by Megan Miranda. I don’t remember what made me add this book. The synopsis didn’t really grab me either.
  3. Illuminate (Gilded Wings, #1) by Aimee Agresti. Another one I don’t remember the reason I added it.
  4. Hemlock (Hemlock, #1) by Kathleen Peacock. I am not sure I am still interested in reading this anymore.
  5. Dark Storm (Dark, #20) by Christine Feehan. I have quit this series. I lost interest a while back.
  6. Falling for Summer (Donovan Brothers #1) (Donovan Brothers #1) (Loving Summer, #2) by Kailin Gow. I don’t think I have read this author before, but this series doesn’t seem like somethingi would be interested in.
  7. If You Stay (Beautifully Broken, #1) by Courtney Cole. I don’t know if I can stomach another “broken male” story right now. lol
  8. Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader by Cassandra Clare. I love the Shadowhunters. I love Cassandra Clare. I don’t feel the need to read this book. At. all.
  9. Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy C. Bennett. I am interested in reading a Rapunzel retelling, I am just not sure I want to read this one. Any suggestions?
  10. The Darkest Craving (Lords of The Underworld #10) by Gena Showalter. I am not sure how this one ended up on my TBR because I am pretty sure I have not read the first 9 books. Interesting.
