New Library Book Additions

The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins

“A delicious twist on a Gothic classic, Rachel Hawkins’s The Wife Upstairs pairs Southern charm with atmospheric domestic suspense, perfect for fans of B.A. Paris and Megan Miranda.”

The Office of Historical Corrections by Danielle Evans

“The award-winning author of Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self brings her signature voice and insight to the subjects of race, grief, apology, and American history.”

I’ve heard a lot of buzz about these two books around Instagram and YouTube. They’re relatively short books, which I’m on the lookout for after I finish reading The Poppy War trilogy. They both sound interesting, and I want to know your thoughts about these if you’ve read them. If you haven’t, are they even on your radar?

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?

Library Book Haul!

I love to update everyone on what I check out from the library. I definitely suggest using a local library in your town. It saves you a ton of money and it’s relaxing to just walk around a nice quiet library. Therapeutic, almost. I’m always changing up what I have checked out from my library. Sometimes I just lose interest in what I have and look for something else. I also work at a library so I sort of get first dibs with all the new stuff that comes in. Exciting, I know. Anyway, here is my library book haul! (Let me say library one more time.)

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Published 6/13/17 by Atria Books

I am almost 170 pages in and I am loving it! This book is fantastic and very harsh. I love it and will definitely be writing a review for it when I finish it, so keep your eyes peeled.

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang:

  • Fantasy
  • Published 5/1/18 by Harper Voyager

Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward:

  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Published 9/5/17 by Scribner

I have kind of started reading this, but I put it down because I just wasn’t in the mood. I was also reading another book and here lately I just want to focus on one. I will get to this one though, I promise.

The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer:

  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Published 4/3/18 by Riverhead Books

Monsterland by James Crowley:

  • Middle Grade Fantasy
  • Published 8/15/17 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

This has been on my TBR since I started the POPSUGAR reading challenge. It checks off one of the challenges and I just haven’t been in the mood for middle grade. I’ll get to it eventually.

Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier:

  • Classic Fiction/Mystery
  • Published 3/8/48 by Doubleday

All the Beautiful Lies by Peter Swanson:

  • Mystery/Thriller
  • Published 4/3/18 by William Morrow

Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land:

  • Mystery/Thriller
  • Published 1/12/17 by Penguin Books Ltd

Braving the WIlderness by Brene Brown:

  • Non-Fiction 
  • Published 9/12/17 by Random House
