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
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.
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
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!
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!
DO YOU USE YOUR LIBRARY?
SHOULD I DO MORE LIBRARY HAULS?
