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 November, to the first two weeks of December.
I have been waiting to read The Wood ever since I found it on Netgalley back in July or so, and wrote a little about it in my August 2017 Publishings post. There’s quite a bit of intrigue surrounding the story, and I am almost desperate to find out.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins
I don’t want to think about this book too much, just because I have high hopes for the novel. I’ve read Perkins’ Anna and the French Kiss trilogy, and while book 2 and 3 were my much preferred novels, I’m hoping that There’s Someone In Your House will be a interesting enough novel to join my thoughts on her other books! I hope There’s Someone In Your House will be scary and highly entertaining.
Eona: The Last Dragon Eye (Eon, #2) by Alison Goodman
I’ve been waiting literal years to borrow this book. Not because the waitlist was long, but because I’ve been confused for the longest time as to what book went first. But I just bought the first book as an ebook on Amazon, so now I’ll actually be able to read the book. Whenever I try to borrow the first book, Eon, the libraries don’t have it. They say they do. I’ll be on a waitlist for quite a while, and then the library’s messaging system says that they don’t have it anymore. So now there’s no excuse! I have it, I’m going to read the first book, then read the second book. Yay dragons! Woot!
I’ve been looking forward to reading Frostblood for such a long time now that I don’t even want to know what Frostblood is actually about. I just want to get the book in at the library, and read it at home. I vaguely remember what the book is about, but this could also be my imagination going wild.
I’ve had my eye on When It’s Real for some time. And since I downloaded an app called “Cloud Library” onto my phone, and logged in with my local library card I now have a huge variety of e-books that I can borrow right onto my phone! It’s actually pretty cool. I’m most interested in When It’s Real because of the ‘what-if’ factor. I know the books’ synopsis says that the two main characters will fall in-love, or there’s a huge chance that they might fall in love with each other.. I’ve got to read this one! Especially because the stakes are so high since one of the characters is famous.
Crystal Blade (Burning Glass, #2) by Kathryn Purdie
It’s been so long since I read Burning Glass that I only have a little bit of recollection of what happened, and how Burning Glass ended. I was actually drawn in by the cover. I didn’t actually know that Crystal Blade was out.
I don’t know what to think, or expect of Crystal Blade honestly. I know that the synopsis (yes, I read the synopsis for a change!) doesn’t make the book sound very bright…which makes Crystal Blade all the more intriguing.
Avenged (Ruined, #2) by Amy Tintera
Ahh, yes, Avenged. I was so looking forward to reading more of Emelina’s story.. The synopsis for Avenged leads me to believe that Emelina will be very troubled in this sequel. She’ll probably have to go on the run to even stay alive, if the synopsis is anything to believe!
We All Fall Down by Natalie D. Richards
Friends, I have been sooo looking forward to reading We All Fall Down! I didn’t check what We All Fall Down was about when I first heard about it. Now that I’ve read it though, I’m somewhat turned off towards the story, yet I’m terribly intrigued.
Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
I’ve been looking forward to reading Spellbook for a really long time. I feel like I’ve been waiting years. I know it hasn’t been that long though, since the book only came out in June. I’m excited for this story because of the Fantasy (Magical Realism), and the Mystery involved!
Other Mentionable titles include:
The Earl and the Fairy by Mizue Tani // a manga that sounds interesting, but haven’t really heard much about it.
The Ancient Magus’ Bride Volume 1, 02, & 03, by Kore Yamazaki // a manga that I first started watching as an anime. Now that I have the first 3 volumes though, I’m so excited to dive into the story!
Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, Vol. 02, and 03 // I read the first one recently (as I’m typing this out) and while I didn’t expect this kind of story, I’m still enjoying the journey the story has started out on.
