Library Reads #34

libraryrreadsLibrary Reads: I’m a huge fan of Libraries. I tend to visit the library quite a bit, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from the library of my hometown, or one of a few libraries that I go to.
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 bit 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 middle two weeks of January.

Hello! Long time no Library Reads post! In this most recent post I talk briefly about the books I’ve borrowed from the library. This time I’ve borrowed about 15 books from 2 different libraries.



Roar (Stormheart, #1) by Cora Carmack 

I’ve actually had this on my TBR list, and I put myself on a queue(!) at the library. I finally have Roar in my hands and I’ve got to say, while I had an impression that I wanted to read Roar. To be honest though, I had to re-read the synopsis to know what it was about, haha.

So I’ve got to say that I was more excited about Roar prior to actually reading the synopsis. Roar at a first glance sounds kinda stingy, but I’m hoping that the book will be way better. I hope that Aurora gets down to it all fast and doesn’t have to end up marrying another kingdoms’ Stormling prince.


First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1) by Darynda Jones

My friend, Jessica, recommended me this book and I doubted that it’d be interesting (for some reason? I’M SORRY JESS). However! Yes, there’s a however, once I got to actually checking out the book, I saw that First Grave on the Right was a Grim Reaper novel and I immediately requested it at my library. I didn’t even read the rest of the synopsis. I hope this is as funny as Jess said it was as well… Time will tell I suppose!


Arena (Arena, #1) by Holly Jennings

So I was at the library the other day with my dad (I lost my freaking lirbary card, and got a new one…) but ANYWAY, Arena is this book where you play online, and get this, you fight to the death. Which in and of itself if ‘meh’ for me. The rest of the synopsis goes on though and says that not only does your character die and you re-start, but when your character dies, the player feels each and every pain that your character receives. Kali Ling (the main character) has lived many, many lives.


The Choosing (Seer, #1) by Rachelle Dekker

I started reading the synopsis and didn’t get too far before I just decided to borrow it since the synopsis for The Choosing draws my attention. Getting home and checking it out on GoodReads though, I’m reading that The Choosing is genre’d as Christian Fiction.
I don’t like reading Christian Fiction. At all. So seeing that is incredibly off-putting. I hope that I don’t end up listing this book as Did Not Finish.


Fireblood (Frostblood, #2) by Elly Blake

I’m SO excited for Fireblood, even though I know that there’ll be the inevitable love-triangle. — I haven’t read the synopsis for Fireblood other than knowing that Ruby will be going to the Firelands. Aka, the place that Ruby’s mother never wanted her to go to.


Miss Me When I’m Gone by Emily Arsenault

I’ve never read anything by EMily Arenault before, and I typically have bad experiences with Non-YA Mystery novels. Miss Me When I’m Gone is not a YA Mystery novel. There’s a high chance that I might end up DNF-ing this book, but the synopsis is worth it!!!!


Whispers in the Mist (A County Clare Mystery, #2) by Lisa Alber

Whispers in the Mist is another Non-YA Mystery. The cover for this book though, is super intriguing, and the synopsis only adds to the intrigue. So I borrowed it! — Whispers in the Mist takes place in Ireland, which is one of the reasons why I borrowed this book. However, there’s another reason I borrowed Whispers in the Mist and that is that the synopsis talks about a “grey man” which reminds me of slenderman. So I’m wondering if there’s anything about the slenderman in this book? ALSO; I only just found out that Whispers in the Mist is the second book. I’m hoping(!!!) that this series is more of a companion series and that I don’t need to read the first book to understand this one.


Avenged (Ruined, #2) by Amy Tintera 

I actually enjoyed reading the first book to Avenged called, Ruined (review here). I don’t really want to know what is supposed to happen in Avenged.. Even though I’ve read the synopsis. It’s been long enough though that I can’t actually remember what happens in the synopsis beyond Em reuiniting with her long lost sister, and that Em is in-love with the prince she fooled. (I’ve re-borrowed Avenged)


Crystal Blade (Burning Glass, #2) by Kathryn Purdie 

I remember reading Burning Glass (the first book) but what I remember most about Burning Glass was the end. The ending to Burning Glass is etched into my mind and let me tell you: if Crystal Blake is a continuation from right when Burning Glass ended, then I am SO excited for Crystal Blade. — I’m still looking forward to reading Crystal Blade, even if CB doesn’t pick up where BG ended. (I’ve re-borrowed Crystal Blade)


Other Mentionable Books I got were:

  • Great Easy Meals – ’cause your blogger doesn’t like cooking.


  • The Ancient Magus’ Bride Vol. 1-3 by Kore Yamazaki
  • Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, Vol. 2+3 by CLAMP


Thank you so much for stopping by!

Are there any books in the post that you’ve read? If so, let me know! I’d love to talk about the book with you.

Happy Reading!
