It’s been a while since I shared a library haul with y’all! I decided to share another one, and make this a more consistent series on the blog, because I keep checking out ridiculous numbers of library books and need a way to hold myself accountable.
The Au Pair – There was a lot of buzz surrounding this book before it’s pub date, but since then I haven’t really heard much about it. This is a book I probably wouldn’t have sought out, but I saw it on the shelf and thought “why not” and checked it out.
Matchmaking For Beginners – I forgot where I saw this book, but a booktuber was talking about it a while back and it sounded interesting. This is another book I probably wouldn’t have gone out and looked for, but I came across it while browsing and decided to check it out.
Saga (entire series) – Okay, so instead of posting a picture for every book in the series, I’m posting the first one, even though I checked out all nine. Initially I checked out the first two, and really enjoyed them so I picked up the rest of the books the next time I went to the library.
Shortest Way Home – I’ve been intrigued with this book for a while, and I was super excited to see that my library had a copy available!
Lumberjanes (vol. 1-3) – I’ve been trying to get into graphic novels recently, and I’ve heard good things about this series, so I decided to pick up the first few volumes. I normally wouldn’t check out so many books from a series at once, but all the graphic novels I grabbed were super short so I don’t feel bad.
Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy – Another graphic novel. I’m not really sure how it fits into the series, but I checked it out anyways lol.
Monsters Volume 1 – The last graphic novel I picked up most recently! I’ve heard lots of good things about this series too, and the artwork looks pretty, so yeah lol.
Advanced Physical Chemistry – I’ve seen lots of good stuff about this series online, and the newest book in the series recently came out. I know this isn’t the first in the series, but I believe it can be read as a standalone. This seems like such a quick read, and I hope it lives up to my expectations.
Tell Me How It Ends – I read an article with a list of books to read about immigration and asylum and this was one on the list. It’s a super short book, around 100 pages, and about ten pages in I realized I was highlighting a lot and needed my own copy so I went out and bought one. This is such a good book, and if you only read one book this year, I recommend it be this one!
Small Town Hearts – I’ve heard a whole lot about this book, and my hold finally came in! I’m super excited to dive into this one soon!
How to Walk Away – I’m done with this book now, but I checked it out at the beginning of last week to buddy read it with a few friends from work. Overall I really enjoyed it, even though there were a few issues I had with the story.
The Obelisk Gate – I loved The Fifth Season when I read it last year, but for some reason I still haven’t picked up the second book in the series. I decided to check the audiobook out, that way it’ll give me more of an incentive to get to it and finish it soon.
