Recently Acquired Library Books

Hello, friends! How’s your Friday going?

I work at my local library and I’m on vacation this week, so I didn’t think I’d pick up any physical books. I decided yesterday to see if I had anything waiting for me, and I did!

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman – “This is a poignant comedy about a crime that never took place, a would-be bank robber who disappears into thin air, and eight extremely anxious strangers who find they have more in common than they ever imagined.” Published by Atria Books – 9/8/20

The Arrangement by Robyn Harding – “Emotionally powerful and packed with page-turning suspense, The Arrangement delves into the sordid, all-too-real world of shadowy relationships between wealthy, powerful men and the young women who are caught in their web.” Published by Scout Press – 7/30/2019


Do you use your library very often? If so, what books do you have checked out currently?

The Reading Rush Wrap Up! (7/22-7/28)

Hello, friends!

The Reading Rush (formally known as the Booktubeathon) is over, and I am definitely coming down from the high. It was so much fun, and as far as readathons go, this was the best I have ever done. I ended up completing all of the challenges! I found a new favorite book, and I found one that I really wasn’t fond of.

If you do not know, The Reading Rush is hosted by Ariel Bissett and Raeleen Lemay. Here is the link to the YouTube video they put out about the challenges. They even have a website now where you can receive badges and make new friends! I recommend everyone participate next time.

I finished 7 books, 1616 pages, and received 13/15 badges. The only two I didn’t get were the “make a Reading Rush booktube video” badge, and “go to a read-in” badge. I’d say that’s pretty successful!

– I will link any reviews I have to each book –

Challenges:

Read a book with purple on the cover: And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Read  a book with a non-human main character: Animal Farm by George Orwell. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Read and watch a book to movie adaptation: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne ⭐⭐

Read a book you meant to read last year: Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
