Library Reads #42

library readsHello friends! Today I’m talking a little about the books I’ve borrowed recently from the library.

Library Reads: I’m a huge fan of libraries. I tend to visit the library quite often, and I even come across great finds. These Library Reads posts are where I write a tad about the books I’ve borrowed.

In this post I’ll write about what books I borrowed, and what I think of the books before I actually start reading them. Whether what I say is a sentence or a few sentences long, here I catalogue the books I’ve borrowed. — From doing these posts I hope to spread a little love for libraries and the stories they can give us.

Without a further-ado, here are the books I borrowed in late January / early February!

The Pain Eater by Beth Goobie

The Pain Eater appealed to me because the title seemed interesting, but for the life of me, I can’t remember where I’ve read/heard about it.

The Pain Eater will be a difficult book for me to read because of what has happened to out main character, Maddy, and how she deals with keeping those memories at bay.

The Hollow by Jessica Verday

I actually found the second book in the library and thought it was interesting. But the synopsis felt like a second book and it was. So I requested and have The Hollow.

Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs

I’ve borrowed Shifting Shadows previously, but I didn’t get around to finishing the stories. I was quite happy that my local library still had Shifting Shadows in its’ shelves and Shifting Shadows didn’t get shuffled to another branch in the library system.

Ink, Iron, and Glass by Gwendolyn Clare

IIG is a book that I want to believe that I saw on Netgalley previously… and then forgot about and then I saw IIG in the library and let me tell you! I was so intrigued. But I often do not read synopsis’, ’cause when I do, the book I read becomes very predictable. Seeing on GoodReads that Ink, Iron and Glass is a Historical Fiction novel makes me very glad that IIG is a book I borrowed from the library. However, IIG is also listed as Steampunk. So maybe that will be the books’ saving grace.

We All Fall Down by Natalie D. Richards

I’ve had my eye on We All Fall Down for a while now. I did not get approved for WAFD on Netgalley but that’s 100% okay, because I recommended We All Fall Down as a purchase to the library. I am SO glad and relieved that they acquired this novel.

The Fall of Innocence by Jenny Torres Sanchez

The Fall of Innocence is going to be a tough story to read since the main character is someone who was assaulted and has locked away those memories — until a discovery about her attackers identity is revealed. Which reopens those locked memories.

I’m very intrigued as to how this story will play out.
