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!
These are the books that I’ve borrowed in March. — Enjoy!
Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh
The first sentence of the synopsis for Ivory and Bone is ‘A prehistoric fantasy–with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.’ I’m interested in the prehistoric fantasy but I’m not all that looking forward to the Pride and Prejudice bit. I haven’t read Pride and Prejudice, so I don’t know how the story goes. The cover drew me in, so I honestly have no idea if I’m going to like the story that will be told. //EDIT: I ended up returning this book without having read it.
The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles
Just by reading the synopsis, I can already tell that I have absolutely no idea what is going on. I have no idea whether to be wary of everything that happens — in a readers way, look out for the characters. Or if I should just nit pick everything and see what happens. What I know for sure is that The Edge of Everything is a YA Fantasy. The YA Fantasy bit of this book has me interested in the story alone. I’m very excited to read this book.
Nemesis by Anna Banks
I’ve been waiting to read Nemesis for a while now honestly! I’m so glad that I requested this book from the library. I don’t know what the story entails but I’m excited to find out!
Becoming Darkness by Lindsay Francis Brambles
I’m pretty sure that I saw a picture of Becoming Darkness somewhere on tumblr, decided to check it out on Goodreads, and then saw that I had this book marked as “To Be Read.” I’m interested in the vampire aspect of this novel, but not the part where the synopsis reveals that Hilter unleashed a virus that turned people into vampires. That’s humorous, really. I want to laugh so badly, yet I know that since I haven’t read the book I’m trying to keep it all in check. A lot of people have marked Becoming Darkness as Did Not Finish. I know for sure that this book is going to be wacky.
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
What I like about this book already is that Scythe’s genres are YA Sci-fi/Fantasy-Dystopia. Scythe seriously feels like a book where if you don’t do as your told, when your told, you will most likely die. And since the two main characters are forced to be death-enforcers they better gear up quickly! Aside from that, I have no idea what Scythe will hold, and I’m looking forward to finding out.
Beautiful Decay by Sylvia Lewis
The only reason why I borrowed Beautiful Decay, was so 1, I didn’t feel guilty about not borrowing a book, and 2, because when I the spine of this book attracted me, I got the book and read the back to see what the book was about. Turns out! Beautiful Decay is actually pretty interesting! The main character has this power where she touches something, or someone and they instantly rot. So she ends up distancing herself from everyone not only for their own safety, but for her own comfort as well. And then there’s a new boy at school. He’s determined to get close to her, and as it turns out, he has an ability of his own!
Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill
I’m really interested in Ever the Hunted since the main event that got me interested was that the main characters father dies, and then the main character Britta Flannery goes on a hunt for revenge.
Frost Blood by Patricia Briggs
Frost Blood is the 7th book in the Mercy Thompson series and I am so looking forward to reading Frost Blood, you guys, you have no idea. I have no idea. I’m not going to read the synopsis at all, so even I don’t know what Frost Blood will be about. I have an inkling though, that the book will be focused on Vampires.
Have you read any of these books? Added any to your TBR?
