Okay, so I’d been doing Down the TBR Hole for quite some time and really loved it. BUT, it started to feel a bit like a chore, which is why I’d cut down on it. Luckily, Destiny decided to create a new similar-but-different feature that’s loads of fun called TBR Lows and Highs!
She recently tweaked it a little bit, and I LOVE the tweak because I’ve been struggling to remove more and more stuff! Here is the new additional rule: I’d like y’all to pick ONE book from the “lows” that you think I should prioritize and I’ll add the top pick to my TBR ASAP shelf. So comment with your vote! 🙂
- 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! (Thank you for this idea, Ari!)
- 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”)
This one appears to have a main character who is intersex, which I don’t think I’ve experienced in a book before!
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
This is some real Vintage Gay. Believe it or not I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I figure I may as well read the book first!
Seems like some fun fantasy stuff!
An Unquiet Mind & Night Falls Fast
These were both recommended by my old psychiatrist, so I’m hoping to get around to them at some point.
I’m Telling the Truth, but I’m Lying & The Trial of Lizzie Borden
These were both featured at What’s Nonfiction? on this list of 12 titles to look forward to in 2019. There are a lot of intriguing titles on there, so definitely check it out if you like to read non-fiction — or if you want to start!
This was reviewed by Hannah and sounds like an extremely fascinating read. It’s also somewhat related to the field I work in, so that makes me want to read it extra badly!
I never managed to read these when I was younger, nor did I watch the TV show BUT my sister and I recently started watching it together so I think I’d like to give the books a shot at some point.
I saw my friend Kyra had rated this highly AND the blurb calls it “a bisexual, polyamorous love story” which is totally what I’m all about.
