Library Haul | 11

January 25, 2020 | Posted by Victoria in Library Haul | 3 Comments

I’m back with another library haul. This one isn’t too big, which is good because I’ve been pretty slow with reading these last few weeks since the semester started and I don’t have a lot of free time.


When They Call You a Terrorist – I’ve been really into reading nonfiction lately, I picked up this book because I’ve heard great things about it. I’m currently halfway through and really enjoying it! It’s beautifully written, and also a very necessary book.

Catch and Kill – I’m in a true crime book club on Insta, and our current read is Catch and Kill. I finished this at the beginning of the week and really enjoyed reading. I was livid and surprised most of the time, because I cannot believe how convoluted the whole Harvey Weinstein thing was. I was also so upset at how many people turned away from the situation and just wanted to ignore it.

Lost Children Archive – I read Valeria Luiselli’s book Tell Me How It Ends at the end of 2019 and really, really enjoyed it. I wanted to read more of Luiselli’s work, but hadn’t picked anything up since then. After all the pushback on  American Dirt, I decided I wanted to read Luiselli’s book now.

 Landwhale – I follow quite a few therapists on Instagram that discuss intuitive eating and diet culture. Recently one shared a list of books on intuitive eating and anti-diet culture, and Landwhale was on the list. After seeing which books my library had, I picked this one up. I’m a little more than halfway through and am really, really loving it.


 Kissing Galileo – I’ve already read and returned this ebook, but it’s a hold that came in since my last library haul. I love Penny Reid, and I love that I can easily access her books from my library.

 The Wives – There’s so much hype surrounding this book, that I want to pick it up. It’s been on my kindle for a hot minute so I need to pick it up soon because the holds list is ridiciulously long and I don’t want to have to wait a few months to try and pick it up again.

Suddenly You – I’ve seen this book ALL over Bookstagram lately. After reading positive review after positive review, I decided to check it out from the library.

Ordinary Girls – I’ve had this book on hold for a while, and it FINALLY came in. I’m definitely hoping to get to this one soon.

What do you currently have checked out from the library?

  1. Enjoy your library reads!

    I have Celebrity In Death by JD Ward checked out for a 2nd 3-week loan period. I’m such a slow e-book reader, that I’m only 44% done.

  2. I’ve been seeing Catch and Kill recently. Might try to read it when I get the chance. The Wives are also on the buzz recently but I’ve read mixed thoughts?
    Hope you enjoy your library reads, Victoria 🙂

    • Catch and Kill was really good! There’s so much going on with the whole situation that I had no idea about. I ended up DNFing The Wives after not enjoying it too much and reading some negative reviews about it.
