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!
Hey everyone! Today’s post is just an update on some books that I’ve borrowed form the library! There’re some books in this list that are new, and some are books that I’ve read before. Enjoy!
Dark Frost (Mythos Academy, #3) by Jennifer Estep
In my last Library Reads post I had said that I got the first two books in the Mythos Academy series. I’ve only read the first book, Touch of Frost. But recently I’ve gotten the rest of the series out from the library as well! So I currently have Dark Frost (#3), Crimson Frost (#4), Midnight Frost (#5), and Killer Frost(#6). I can’t say much about what I expect because I literally have 5 books out that are just one series. There are so many ways that the story could go.
The Astrologer’s Daughter by Rebecca Lim
I know I’ve borrowed The Astrologer’s Daughter before, but since I updated my phone all my notes were deleted, including the ones where I had wrote book reviews for. So I’m going to re-read The Astrologer’s Daughter and hopefully review the book.
True Born (True Born Trilogy, #1) by L.E. Sterling
I remember hearing about True Born a few months back, I heard only good things. And the cover is eye catching! In my opinion the cover isn’t really POP! out there, but it’s interesting enough where I stopped and read what the book is about. I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t get that far into reading the synopsis. I figured that True Born was a Fantasy or a Dystopia and just went with it.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
I’ve heard many things about The Song of Achilles, and I’ve also heard a lot of things to do with another book, and the two have, unfortunately, melded into one book in my mind. So I’ve decided to go ahead and read The Song of Achilles which is a Historical Fiction Fantasy/Mythology LGBTQIA Romance. Whoo, that was a long sentence. I’m looking forward to reading The Song of Achilles because I absolutely need more LGBTQIA books in my life. Everyone needs more LGBTQIA books in their lives. A great thing about this book (already!!) is that this book is a standalone.
Ash by Malinda Lo
Ash is another book that I’ve heard about, and it was recommended because of the LGBTQIA factor that the book has. Another thing that’s interesting about Ash is that Ash is a Cinderella retelling!!! I love retellings of fairy tales.
Kinslayer (The Lotus War, #2) by Jay Kristoff
I read the first book to the trilogy, Stormdancer, a little while ago. I liked some parts, didn’t like some other parts.. However, how Stormdancer ended had me completely baffled and frankly, I need to read Kinslayer. I don’t know what to expect aside form chaos. Kinslayer is going to be one heck of a whirlwind! I need to know what happens!
Don’t Look Now (PERSEFoNE, #2) by Michelle Gagnon
The first book, Don’t Turn Around, ended in a way that I completely love. Where you just know that shit is going to go down in the next book. Where the main character works with tons of nameless people who work behind the scenes to take down the government! I’m just…so excited.
Insatiable by Meg Cabot
I didn’t think I would ever read a book by Meg Cabot — I’ve never had the urge to read one of her books. However, while searching for “trashy novels” I stumbled upon Insatiable. I have no idea what to expect from this story. I know that Insatiable is a Paranormal Romance that has Vampires and (I’m assuming) the like. What really got me interested in reading this book however is the first sentence of the synopsis:
‘Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.’
I ended up requesting Insatiable, and then a day after I requested the book, it was ready to be picked up! I’m keeping my expectations low for Insatiable..However, I keep feeling giddy when I think about the possibilities this book has.
Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, #1) by Kim Harrison
Dead Witch Walking is going to be my first read that’s written by Kim Harrison. I had heard via recommendation that this book was a good, trashy novel, and because I’ve been in the mood for these kinds of books lately I decided to borrow the book, because why not? The main character seems to be badass and doesn’t really give a crap about anything. So Dead Witch Walking seems to be right up my alley! I’m actually really looking forward to reading this book because I can already tell that this is gonna be a good one! The copy that I have is a little bit bigger than a pocket sized book, but smaller than a normal paperback, so I can just foresee everything. I’m so excited!
Here are some books that I’ve had to reborrow because my lazy butt couldn’t read them in time!:
Lead (Stage Dive, #3)by Kylie Scott,
Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz,
Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die, #1) by Danielle Paige.
Have you read any of the books mentioned? If you have, what one(s) and what did you think of it/them? I’d love to know. Thank you so much for reading.
Until next time!
