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! I hope you’re doing well! If not, I’m so sorry. I hope it gets better.
I went to the library recently, and before even leaving the house, I told myself, “You only need one book” and my brain must’ve taken that as “get all the books.” Because that’s what I pretty much did: I got all the books. When I got to the library, it must’ve been fate or something ’cause when I got there, all the books that I’ve thought of within the last 3-ish months were just there. Sitting on the shelves. Waiting. So I borrowed them!
Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a looong time. It’s probably only been a year since I’ve heard about Tell the Wind and Fire, but I have the same need to read this book as I did when I first read what Tell the Wind and Fire was about. — I’m really excited to read about a book that involves dark secrets and magic again.
Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn
Down with the Shine is another book that I’ve had my eye on for a while now as well. I actually first discovered Down with the Shine via Netgalley. I’m intrigued as to what people made their wishes to be, since they’ll come true. I’m also very interested in the horror aspect of the story.
One Was Lost by Natalie D. Richards
I have high hopes for One Was Lost. I first found out about One Was Lost via Netgalley, and was immediately interested, because, hey, it’s a Mystery/Thriller/Horror, and it’s a YA Book? COUNT ME IN! That, and the cover for One Was Lost is pretty as well. I love the intrigue behind the synopsis. One that tells about a revenge of some sort.
Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards
I only found out about Six Months Later thanks to the back cover of One Was Lost. So I tracked Six Months Later down at the library and voila! There it was, sitting with three other books that look suspiciously alike. Six Months Later is about a girl, Chloe.
‘When Chloe fell asleep in study hall, it was the middle of May. When she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can’t remember the last six months of her life.‘ — WITH THAT FOLKS, I WAS LIKE: Yep, this is going home with me.
Infinity by Jus Accardo
OK, so, I found Infinity back in October when I went to Chapters in a general search of books. Really for anything that would catch my eye. And Infinity was one of those books that had caught my eye! However, once I read the synopsis and found out that Infinity is akin to a time travel book. Except Infinity deals with different dimensions.
Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell
I’ve been wanting to read Mechanica for a while now; especially since the main thing about this book (as fa as I can tell) is that of a Steampunk retelling of Cinderella.
Until We Meet Again by Renee Collins
I know I’ve borrowed this book before, but at that time I had run out of time to read the book. This might actually happen again. But my friend loves this book so much I have to read it and see whats what. What I like about this book is firstly, the hardcover. It’s so pretty. Secondly, the single line that drew me in: ‘They exist in two different centruies, but their love defies time.‘ Isn’t that intriguing?! How exactly does their love defy time itself? There must be time travel involved.
Nowhere Wild by Joe Beernink
What I’m most happy about Nowhere Wild is that it takes place in Canada. Not many of the books I read actually takes place in my own country. I actually thought that when I read the synopsis for Nowhere Wild in the library, I thought that the story would be a dystopian one, but apparently its a story of survival between two different points of view. A girl, Izzy, who is just 13 years old. And a boy, Jake, who is 16 years old. I’m kinda nervous now for the story. I have no idea where the story will go.
These are the 8 books that I’ve gotten out from the library recently! Have you read any of these books– what’re your thoughts? If you haven’t read any of these books, do you think you’re going to?
