Library Love | November

Posted November 21, 2016 / Features, Library Love, Weekly Memes / 10 Comments

lib headerI’ve been wanting to share some library hauls on the blog, since I don’t usually include them in my monthly wrap-ups. I just show the books I acquired for keeps instead of the ones I’m renting 😉 However, the library has been really fantastic lately. I go through phases where I use it A LOT and phases where I forget it exists somehow. Whenever the mood strikes, I’ll share what I’m working on from the library during any given month. I haven’t done one of these since April so I thought it was due time… since I went crazy last time!

checked out


The Choices We Make by Karma Brown | I adored her debut so incredibly much. I’m really nervous this one won’t hold up, but I’ve seen nothing but great reviews so far! I’m sure I’ll need to pick this one up when I’m in the mood to cry again, because good lorddddd did her first book make me SOB.

Interference by Kay Honeyman | This was added to my hold list on a whim (I think someone posted a review that I saw?) and recently came in. I love anything football related. The really broad comparisons for this one make it seem like it’ll be similar to another favorite of mine (Jane Austin + football), so we’ll see!

Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas | No-brainer. I decided to hold off on buying the audio of this for now so I can test out actually reading one of the books in this series. It’s a hard one to listen to and focus in on, which is why maybe I haven’t reached obsession-level for this series like others have.

You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan | I saw this on display at the library and just grabbed it. I was intrigued when it first came out but it wasn’t a priority for me at the time. We’ll see!

The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close | I didn’t enjoy the first book I read by Close, but I’m intrigued by the premise for this one. I’m also a sucker for grabbing books randomly even though they’re 14 day loans.

The Secret Ingredient of Wishes by Susan Bishop Crispell | This is another 14 day loan book I grabbed off the rack, but I’ve been drawn to “adult magical realism + contemporary” books lately! I hope this kicks off a new genre exploration for me because it sounds really fun and interesting.

Things I Can't Explain

Things I Can’t Explain by Mitchell Kriegman

This is the only book on my Must Read in 2016 TBR list that I don’t already own. I’m pretty sure I asked for it for Christmas but I can’t keep track of which Amazon wishlists have certain books on them anymore. I know this got mixed reviews but I’m still very intrigued by the Clarissa Explains It All update – basically an older Clarissa after the show finished. I hope this comes in sooner rather than later so I can finish up my challenge!

  1. Love this! I do the same thing, go through phases with the library. I didn’t love Interference as much as I wanted to but it was cute so you’ll have to let me know what you think! The Secret Ingredient of Wishes sounds really good too; magical realism food books always make me think of the movie Chocolat 🙂

  2. I loved The Choices We Make! I thought it was absolutely brilliant, and definitely a strong sophomore release from Karma Brown. It pretty much has cemented her status as an auto-read/auto-buy author for me! Also, obviously, I’m excited about you having Empire of Storms. I do so love this series!

  3. I’m the same. Use the library a lot and then not for months. Weird how that works.

    I’ve been borrowing a lot of audio books lately from mine.

    The Secret Ingredient of Wishes is on my wishlist you borrow funny enough.
