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

I’ve been in and out of a reading slump since February, and no matter what I read it doesn’t seem to help. I’m hoping with all of these options I will at least find one. I am currently reading two of these books and I just don’t find myself picking them up. I have taken breaks from reading to see if that helps, and all it makes me do is wish I was reading. If you have any ideas as to how I can be released from this awful slump then let me know down in the comments.

Library Book Haul #2!

Hey guys, I’m back! Sorry I haven’t posted in a week or so but I’ve been busier than I ever expected to be. Between working everyday and Thanksgiving I haven’t had any time. That’s no excuse though, right? Doesn’t matter because I’m making a blog post right now. Better late than never.

I have another library book haul for you. I haven’t made one of these since I started my blog last month. It seemed to do pretty well so now that I have a bunch of books from the library I figured now is a better time than any. I believe I have 11 exciting books to share with you all. A couple of them I’ve had for a month now so I’m sure some of you have seen them on my Instagram if you follow me there.

This one is a little bit different from the last one. I do not write the synopsis of the book I just give you the Goodreads link. I just explain kind of why I want to read it and if it’s still a priority to me.

Ringer by Lauren Oliver


I have already read Replica by Lauren Oliver and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve had Ringer checked out from the library for a long time and just haven’t picked it up. I don’t even plan on picking it up soon so it will probably go back to the library before I do. That’s okay though I’ll have the chance to read it eventually.


Bird Box by Josh Malerman


I was recommended this by a co-worker and I planned on reading it in October but I just never got around to it. It also wasn’t one of my top prioritized books anyway. I haven’t heard much about it other than at work so I don’t know what to expect going into it.


Warcross by Marie Lu


If you haven’t heard of this book you have been living under a rock. It was all over Booktube and goodreads. There is so much praise and high rating that I decided to check it out. I’ve had it laying on my desk for a while now and haven’t picked it up. I’m still pretty interested in reading it so I may reach for it in the near future. Hopefully I don’t have to take it back anytime soon!


They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera


Here is another book that was very popular for a while on the internet. I waited a very long time for this to come back to the library. There is such a long check out period at the library I go to so I have to wait patiently. I haven’t had a good run with Adam Silveras books unfortunately. I started History is all You left Me and I DNF’d it. The writing was very plain and it was boring. Hopefully this one is much more interesting.


Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave


I was browsing around on my library’s overdrive and found this as an audio book. I read the synopsis and thought it sounded interesting. I haven’t heard anything about this before but I’m excited to see what it has to offer!


The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon


I have known about this book for a little while now. I don’t know much about it and I haven’t heard anything. I think sometimes I just want to go into a book blind. I always tend to pick up hyped books so this would be a nice change.


Class Mom by Laurie Gelman


I saw this on Booktube very recently and it just sounded like a lot of fun to read. It’s not a very big book so I think I should be able to fly through it. The YouTuber that read it and enjoyed it was rmfickfack 

I really enjoy her channel and value her opinions about books. Go check out her channel!


Slasher Girls and Monster Boys (Stories selected by April Genevieve Tucholke) (Stories written by many authors including Leigh Bardugo, Jay Kristoff, Marie Lu etc…)


I haven’t really ever read a collection of short stories. I haven’t really ever heard good things about them so I have been hesitant to pick on up. I have heard a good amount of praise about this one so I decided to check it out. I wanted to read it in October but my library didn’t have it in stock at the time.


Far from the Tree by Robin Benway


I have no idea what this is about (surprise, surprise). I have seen it around Booktube but I didn’t pay attention to it. Again, the ratings on Goodreads are pretty good so I don’t think it would hurt anything to read it. I do love how beautiful the cover of this book is though (may also be another reason I picked it up. . . Shh!)


The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed


I’ve heard about this book on Booktube quite a bit. Since I wasn’t really interested in reading it then I didn’t pay attention to what they were saying about it. It has a pretty solid rating on goodreads so I figured, why not? If I don’t like it I can just turn it back into the library and never see it again. That’s why I love checking books out from the library first instead of wasting money on a book and then it just sits on your shelf.


Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


I’ve heard great things about this book but I have no clue what it is actually about. It has a high rating on goodreads and I think it will be something a little different from what I have been reading lately.


Thank you for reading and sorry for being gone for awhile. I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know what you think/thought of these books! Remember, be respectful and happy reading.
