Library Reads: I’m a Library Lover, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from libraries. I’ll tell you a little bit about what I expect from the book, or the author’s writings. Whether what I say is a sentence long, or a few sentence’s. From doing these posts, I hope to spread a little of my love for libraries, while also informing you of books that you may or may not have known of!
Hello lovelies, how are you doing? I keep on going back to the library and getting more and more books that I seem to never have the time to read! Anyway, these are the books that I’ve recently gotten. If you’ve read them, let me know! I love seeing who has read what!
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
I first read this book a few years ago. Before I started this blog, so I want to re-read the book to not only be able to move onto the second book in the series, but also to be able to review Dorothy Must Die for this blog! Plus, I think it’d be interesting to see what I think of this book the second time around.
All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry
It turns out….that I already have this book at home. The paperback version of this book is so freaking pretty! I’m glad I already have this book, but I’m getting tired of borrowing books from the library that I already have! Ahahahaha. Does this ever happen with you? — I’m re-excited to read All the Truth That’s in Me again because I was reminded by reading the synopsis, that this book is a mystery!! I’m really into YA Mysteries now!! (If you have any recommendations, please send them my way!)
Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones
So I’ve borrowed this book before, but I never got to finish the book. And I had told myself that if Illusive was still on the shelves the next time I went to the library, I would take it out again. So that’s what I’ve done! I’ve borrowed Illusive again, and this time, I hope to get more that 40 pages into the book.
What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi
What You Left Behind has actually been on my TBR for a while now. I’m not entirely sure if I put it on my TBR over on Goodreads, but I know the cover interested me enough whenever I saw pictures of the book. Now I finally have this book in my hands! I haven’t read the synopsis, although I can tell already that this is probably a contemporary YA novel.
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
I’ll Give You the Sun is actually my groups read this month! Were reading this book over at Sieze the Book on Goodreads. This book is actually the first book that I haven’t yet read! It’ll be interesting to read along with my group; even though we all read at our own paces, I’m still looking forward to what everyone thinks of the book.
The Fall by Bethany Griffin
What pushed me to borrow this book was the sentence on the front cover that reads: “Madness is in the very air she breathes.” Which to me is so freaking intriguing. I don’t actually know what this book is about, and I’m hoping to keep it that way! Until I actually get around to reading the book of course…
This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Mijkamp
I heard of this book on tumblr/booklr and as well as on Goodreads a few months back, if not a year ago. I don’t know much about this story except that there’s guns, maybe a school shooting?? And that everyone says that This is Where it Ends is a Must Read!!!
The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May
I read The Falconer not too long ago, and the ending of that book ends literally MID scene. I have to know what happens next. Even though I initially thought that The Falconer was a stand alone, it is not. It’s actually a trilogy of books, so The Vanishing Throne is actually the second book in the trilogy. I would’ve really loved The Falconer to be a stand alone though… And both covers are super pretty! My only wish/hope, is that The Vanishing Throne doesn’t end mid scene either.
Mad Miss Mimic by Sarah Henstra
Which is a book my sister has borrowed, but looks interesting to me as well. I don’t know if I’ll end up reading it or not. Although, I’m looking forward to see what my sister thinks of the book!
That’s all for this Library Reads post. Thanks for reading!

Every time I read through your library reads I notice how many different genres you check out. Do you have any go to genres or some genres that you need to push yourself a little to check out and read?

That’s a great question! My safety net is Fantasy. I try to push myself to read more Contemporary or Historical novels. I’m even trying out mystery!
My go to is Fantasy and Sci-fi, but I do want to try and reach into contemporary every now and then. It’s hard though because a lot of times they annoy me to no end, eek!
Yep, Mystery! I’m finding though that in my opinion YA Mystery is waay better than ‘normal’ mystery. – Same here! A lot of YA Contemporary has me bored. I enjoy New Adult way more than YA Contemporary, I’m finding.
