I Heart Libraries and What is on my Holds List.

I love the public library system. I have been using the library since I was a child and my parents would take me and my siblings to the library every Saturday. The library has always been a haven for me. A place that I felt safe and protected, where I could explore my interests and activities without judgement. If I wanted to learn about something, I went to the library and asked a librarian. And it’s FREE! Have I said that. It doesn’t cost anything if you are mindful of returning books on time and keeping track of them.

So, yes, I love the library. You might have to wait a bit for a new book to get to you, but my library has a great hold system. The following is a list of books that I have on hold currently. Can’t wait to read these books!

A Promised Land by Barack Obama

Do I need to say anything about this book. I’m so looking forward to reading this book.

Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton

This book is the basis for the Netflix movie, Midnight Sky.

Malorie by Josh Malerman

A follow-up to Birdbox!

Radiance by Grace Draven

A fantasy love story with an arranged marriage of two people of different species. Sounds interesting.

Remote Control by Nnedi Okorafor

She’s the adopted daughter of the Angel of Death. Beware of her. Mind her. Death guards her like one of its own.”

Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

A dystopian, steampunk fantasy!! Yup, I’m into it!

Book Outlet Haul

#Book OUtlet HaulThis is my third Book Outlet purchase in as many weeks.  I can’t justify paying for shipping, so I ensure that my purchases are over $35 so I receive free shipping.

The Bone Season and The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon: I have already read The Bone Season on e-book and loved it, but that was a long time ago and I don’t remember much. So, I decided to start the series over and purchased the first two books in the trilogy.

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. I don’t know much about this book, but it is my current read.

My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. I’m not sure why I picked this book up but I am very interested in reading it.

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder. I think this was a total cover buy!

A World Without You by Beth Revis. I have to say that I enjoy a good book about mental illness, especially young adult.  We need to not be afraid to talk about mental illness!

300 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes by Dana Carpenter. I know, this book doesn’t fit in with the rest of the books, but winter is coming and I love getting out my crockpot and cooking dinner on cold, rainy days.
