Library Reads: I’m a Library Lover, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from either one library, of a few 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 from the last two weeks of October, to the first 2 weeks of November.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, read by Jim Dale
The Night Circus is the second audiobook that I’ve borrowed from my library. I am especially excited for this audiobook, since I loved reading The Night Circus.
Rook by Sharon Cameron
Rook was simply a book borrowed because of the cover. I also borrowed Rook since I vaguely recall hearing about this story very, very briefly on the internet somewhere. The cover looks like a historical romance type novel, but I’m very glad that on GoodReads, Rook is listed as a YA-Dystopia-Fantasy-Romance-Sci-Fi novel.
Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey
The cover for Love and Other Alien Experiences had drawn me in. I’m drawn even further into the story because of the synopsis, and the genres this book is marked as on GoodReads. I’m very much looking forward to reading this one.
The Revenge by Hannah Jayne
I like to not read what Hannah Jayne’s books are about, since for me, that removes a lot of the suspense that I can expect in her novels. I heard about The Revenge on Netgalley, and immediately requested that my library purchase a copy. I AM SO GLAD THEY BOUGHT A COPY.
Venturess by Betsy Cornwell
I read the first book, Mechanica and I ended up really enjoying it. I was super excited and was anticipating the release of Venturess. Now that I have a library copy in my posession, I cant wait to read it! I think I’m most looking forward to seeing how all the characters are doing, and seeing what they’re up to. Most of all, I want to know what happened with the Elf/Fae people, since I can’t recall what exactly happened in the last book surrounding the Fae.
The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
I actually had to download a library app on my phone to even be able to read The Last Magician as an e-book. I know I’ve talked about The Last Magician before on another post (July’s Publishings that Interest Me | 2017). And what I said in that post still holds true: “I sure do hope that The Last Magician isn’t going to be predictable, since I can already kind of tell that Esta is going to have a hard time betraying everyone, once she gets to know them all.”
Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
I’m in a Christmas story mood and I haven’t yet read Let It Snow, so I’m definitely going to try my best and read this one!
Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler
Bittersweet is going to be a re-read for me, but I think(?) that I enjoyed it the first time I read it, so hopefully I’m going to enjoy it the second time I read it.
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn, David Levithan
I’ve been wanting to read Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares for a few years now. I haven’t gotten around to reading it though since I always forget about it. Hopefully now I can actually read it, see what I think about it, and move on.
The Mistletoe Secret by Richard Paul Evans
I’m not entirely sure what I will end up thinking of The Mistletoe Secret, since its’ a General Fiction novel, but it’s Christmas themed, and right now that’s good enough for me! The main character is a blogger, blogging under the name LBH, about her life. She has a reader who is nursing his own broken heart and trust issues, when he finds LBH’s blog. — That’s all I really knew about the book before I decided to borrow it from the library.
Winter Wonderland (LoveTravel, #10) by Belinda Jones
It’s to my understanding that this series is a series where you can read any of the books out of order, in order, whatever, and still be able to understand the series. Especially since each book has its’ own character story. I’m forgetting the word/saying for when I series is related to each other, but doesn’t have the first books’ main character as the main character for all the other additions in the series.
My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff
I’ve been looking forward to this book for so long now! I’m incredibly excited to read it and get to know the characters! Ahh!
The Goal (Off-Campus, #4) by Elle Kennedy
I know I say this about a lot of the books I talk about on here, but I have been looking forward to reading The Goal since it came out September last year. I’ve finally borrowed it from the library, so The Goal is definitely going to be on my TBR list for an up-coming weekend!
OTHER MENTIONABLE BORROWINGS
I requested this book a while ago. I like being able to just throw food together and be able to just cook it all at once. That’s my personal favourite way of cooking though. So I requested this Slow Cooker cookbook! There are already a few recipes that I want to try.
These are the books that I currently have out from the library. Have you borrowed any books recently?
