MY LIBRARY HAUL | MAY + JUNE 2018

Hey guys, today I am trying out something new! I know I keep saying that, but I have honestly never written one of these posts before. I read mostly from the library (physically or BorrowBox/OverDrive) and go there once or twice a week, I am literally on a first name basis with some of the librarians. Anyway, so I am thinking about doing some library hauls every couple of months so I can keep you guys on top of what I’m reading and so I can also show my support for libraries!

UPDATE: I wrote this in the middle of May so I might have read a few of these already.

Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and which book I should read next!

WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE OUT FROM THE LIBRARY

a booksThe Wicked Cometh   Warcross (Warcross, #1)   Before the Devil Breaks You (The Diviners, #3)   Little Girl Gone (An Afton Tangler Thriller #1)

THE WICKED COMETH

I read this in early May and I really thought I would love it. And I did for the first hundred pages but the rest of the book was a bit of a let down for me. I thought this was going to a really fun and interesting historical mystery that I would be gushing about for days. But, unfortunately, it just wasn’t for me. I think that if you are a fan of the scenery and general vibe of Jane Eyre or Persuasion you might enjoy this and if you like a mystery with a prominent love story this will be for you. I wish I would have loved this more but, unfortunately, there was too much romance and not enough actual mystery for me.

WARCROSS

As I am writing this I am 100 pages in and so far I am really enjoying it! I’ve only read Batman by the same author and I am really enjoying her writing style! I should have finished it by the time this post goes on if everything goes to plan!

BEFORE THE DEVIL BREAKS YOU

As I am writing this post I am roughly halfway through the book. I’ve been reading roughly 100 pages a day so I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to return the book next week. So far this is really good and I am really enjoying it. This is a really character based series, so if you like books that focus more on the characters you should check out this series!

LITTLE GONE GIRL

I picked this up from the library on a whim and I think I’ll give it a shot. It’s got really good ratings on Goodreads so I’m excited to get into a new Mystery Thriller!

WHAT I CURRENTLY HAVE ON *HOLD

*A hold is  when you request something (book movie, cd, etc.) to be delivered to your local library so you can pick it up

booksThe Song of Achilles   Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1)   The Hate U Give   The Loneliest Girl in the Universe   Bad Romance

THE SONG OF ACHILLES

I recently wrote a blog post about some of the popular YA books I still haven’t read and TSOA was on the list. My comments blew up and pretty much everyone told me that I have to pick it up asap, so I put it on hold straight away after seeing everyone’s positive reaction to the book!

THREE DARK CROWNS

This was also on my list and it also got a pretty positive reaction so I figured why not put it on hold at the same time? I’m sure I will pick it up soon after I finish Little Gone Girl! It feels like forever since I read a YA fantasy so I’m excited to get back into the genre!

THE HATE U GIVE

Yes, I know. Shame me, please. It came to my attention recently that I have somehow managed to not pick this up yet. I’ve just never had the chance, I’m trying to limit the number of books I buy and I have never seen at my library, so I just decided t bite the bullet and put on hold at my library!

THE LONELIEST GIRL IN THE UNIVERSE

This title is depressing and the premise is depressing and I am so excited. It’s basically Passengers but with a twist I guess? Actually, scratch that. What am I talking about? I haven’t even seen Passengers. *coughs* It’s what I imagine Passengers with a twist would be… I did a bad job of explaining that but, you should click on the cover and check out the blurb yourself!

BAD ROMANCE

I have recently found out that I really enjoy dark contemporary stories. I recently read and loved The Nowhere Girls & The Female of The Species. They are both pretty dark with some intense subject matter, much like this book and I’ve heard amazing things about Bad Romance so I figured I would give it a go!

  1. I used to use my library SOOO much and then!? I started getting a lot more books from publishers and So I haven’t used my library in about a year now…oops. I do plan to use it soon, maybe? Warcross is amazing!! I would recommend her older YA series, The Young Elites: it is FABULOUS!! I have 3 dark crows on my shelf but I heard mostly “meh” and”boring” and “slow” comments from friends so idk when i’ll pick it up. THUG is really good, hope you enjoy it and the hype doesn’t fail you!

    1. I really loved Warcross and Batman so I will definitely be checking out her other works!
      I just started Three Dark Crowns and it definitely is slow but I’m hoping it will start to pick up as the story progresses.
      I have high hopes for THUG!

  3. Ooh I love this idea! I go to the library so much so maybe it’s something I can incorporate as well. I haven’t read any of these but almost all of them are on my TBR!

  4. Hope you’ll get to THUG soon and that you’ll love it! I don’t use my library – once you’re older than 18 you have to pay a pretty high membership fee that’s not worth it for me considering they don’t really have any books I’m interested in :/
