Library Reads #36


Library 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 between February 22 & March 8.


Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott

gotta admit that the title slash the cover page is very intriguing!! And when I read the synopsis on the way home, I was even more interested. I don’t want to look too much into the books’ synopsis, because I’d like to have fresh eyes when I read the story.

Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry

I’ve wanted to read Say You’ll Remember Me for a couple of months now. As of late, I’ve never read a Katie McGarry novel. I’m kind of iffy about Say You’ll Remember Me because it seems like there’s two points of view and I don’t know if the two views will work together. Honestly, Say You’ll Remember Me seems like an incredibly predictable book. However, I haven’t read it yet so I don’t yet know!

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson 

I’ve actually wanted to read The Name of the Star for a while, but whenever I went to the library, it was never on the shelves. It was either out, or at another library. However, I knew that I wanted to read this book only on the chance that I could find it when I’m actually physically at either library. Which finally happened! I don’t know what The Name of the Star is about, though I do remember reading about it briefly a few years ago. I think it’s on the trigger list, and became interested.

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Daughter of the Pirate King has been in my sights for a while. I didn’t want to buy the book, but I suggested a purchase of a copy to the library. I’m so glad that they bought it and put the story in the system.

I don’t know too much about the book or storyline, to be honest. All I know is that the main character is a female version of Jack Sparrow. And that maybe (I’m speculating here), the main character has lived her whole life on the sea? I won’t know more until I actually start reading the book. However, I hope I end up liking Daughter of the Pirate King!

Assassin’s Heart by Sarah Ahiers

I am SO very MUCH looking forward to reading Assassin’s Heart! I’ve heard next to nothing about this book on the web, and honestly, I’m a little too much of a coward to actively see what people have got to say about Assassin’s Heart. I’m always a sucker for revenge stories, and when Fantasy is thrown into the mix I get a little too excited.

The Light that Gets Lost by Natasha Carthew

I was interested in this book at the library, but now that I have it here at home.. I quickly hopped on over to the books’ GoodRead page and unfortunately it seems like a lot of people either gave it 2 stars, or just 1. Which puts a slight damper on my interest in the novel.

I’m still going to try and read The Light that Gets Lost though. I don’t want other people’s opinion clouding my judgement.

Have you borrowed any books lately? 

Happy Reading!
