Library Reads #43

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.

Have you borrowed any books lately? 

Here are the books I borrowed from the library in March!

Young Adult Books borrowed

Almost Midnight (Two Festive Short Stories) by Rainbow Rowell Illustrated by Simini Blocker

I knew that Rainbow Rowell came out with a new book, but other than that I didn’t hear much about it. So I know absolutely nothing about Almost Midnight, and I’m going to keep it that way until I read it.

Saving Montgomery Sole by Mariko Tamaki

I knew I’ve heard of Saving Montgomery Sole previously but other than that, I don’t know what Saving Montgomery Sole is about. Since I’ve heard about it though, I decided to borrow it anyway. — I honestly don’t know a thing about SMS. Though with checking SMS’s GoodReads page, I found that SMS is a LGBT novel so yAAAY!

Kingdom of Ash and Briars (The Nissera Chronicles Books 1 & 2!by Hannah West

I only borrowed these books because back ni February when I was at Chapters I found Realm of Ruins on the shelves and knew I had to read it. Solely because of the cover for Realm of Ruins. It’s too pretty to be ignored.

Checking the Kingdom of Ash and Briars page on GoodReads though, it shows that this book is a fairy tale retelling. I am SO looking forward to reading these two books now. Eep!

Ship of Smoke and Steel (The Wells of Sorcery, #1) by Django Wexler

I’ve heard a few things about Ship of Smoke and Steel from someone told me on the internet, that Ship of Smoke and Steel had Bisexual representation along with some other things that I know I will remember later, but have currently forgotten about.

There are quite a few fantasy elements to Ship of Smoke and Steel, so I’m looking forward to that as well.

Amber & Dusk by Lyra Selene 

A fantasy novel where the main character leaves her town for a better life, one where she’ll be accepted for who she is. Once Sylvie arrives at the palace named, Coeur d’Or, the palais of the Amber Empress.

When Sylvie arrives though the Amber Empress makes her take on a new name, and  navigate secretive social circles and deadly games of intrigue in order to claim her spot.

I honestly don’t know what I should expect when I go into reading Amber & Dusk.

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

I’ve been wanting to read Nightshade for such a long time now that I don’t even remember when I originally added Nightshade to my TBR. Nightshade is a werewolf story that takes place in Colorado.. I have read the synopsis for Nightshade, and I’m still kinda sorta interested in the story. However, I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish Nightshade or not. I think I would have enjoyed reading Nightshade a few years ago, as opposed to now.

Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee 

I am over-the-moon happy that my local library acquired Dragon Pearl. I put Dragon Pearl on my Most Anticipated Titles list for January 2019, and I’m still excited to read this Mythology inspired Sci-Fi / Fantasy novel.

The Lonely Dead by April Henry

I have been excited to read The Lonely Dead ever since I found out that April Henry came out with another novel. I’m not too sure what The Lonely Dead is about, even though I’m sure I’ve read the synopsis before…. I guess that will result in me finding that The Lonely Dead will be predictable. I hope I don’t find it predictable, ’cause that’d just be boring as heck.

Non-Young Adult books:

Still Mine (Still, #1 and 2) by Amy Stuart

So I don’t know too much about either of these novels and I plan to keep it that way. Yey for surprises.

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

Ahh, I don’t know how I’ll fare with Let Me Lie. I had major anxiety after I had finished Mackintosh’s book I See You, so  h o p e f u l l y  I won’t have another case of bad anxiety if I read Let Me Lie.

Right Behind You Quincey & Rainie, #7) by Lisa Gardner

Apparently, you can read Right Behind You as a stand alone, YAY. But there will be some obvious back story that I will miss unless I start from book one. Sorry but I don’t have the time to start at the beginning, haha.

The Breakdown by B.A. Paris

I know little to nothing about The Breakdown, and like almost all Mystery / Suspence / Thriller novels I read, I’m going to keep my knowledge about said book to a minimum. I only skimmed my reading of the synopsis for The Breakdown. So I kind of know what to expect — an unreliable main character –. Beyond that though, I don’t know what will happen.
