Library Haul (aka Drowning in a Pile of Books)

img_1169

📚Recently, I looked through the Boston Public Library catalog and found many books that have been on my TBR list for awhile, so I did what any sane person would do and checked out all of them. I’m not sure if I’ll get to reading every book before the deadlines, but I guess challenge accepted?

Anyway, here’s a list of my library finds!

32620332

 

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I’m so excited to read this book! The reviews have been amazing, and it sounds like the perfect summer read.

 

35566332

 

Bone Music by Christopher Rice

The synopsis for this book makes it sound like just the kind of book I’ve been wanting to read.

 

18498558

 

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

This book has been on my to-read list for a very long time, so I was really excited to find it available!

 

35520564

 

The Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe by Alex White

This book just came out and was available as an eBook! My favorite author loved this book, so I feel like I will too despite my sci-fi aversion.

 

5082599

 

Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

What’s not to love about a law firm romance? This was recommended for people who love The Hating Game, so count me in.

 

30753733

 

Keep Her Safe by K.A. Tucker

I’ve never met a K.A. Tucker book that I didn’t like. I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this for awhile!

 

25558608

 

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

Now that the third books is out, it’s about time that I return to this series.

 

24504274

 

Pucked by Helena Hunting

A funny sports romance is the kind of book I need in my life right now.

Book Haul – End of February

img_2478

I spoiled myself a little bit this month, so I wanted to share my recent purchases! I’m a lot more motivated to read when I actually own the books instead of having pretty little pictures on my Goodreads TBR list.


Pre-Order (Hardcover):

34499221[1]35297394[1]

I’m so so excited to read these! I recently featured To Kill a Kingdom on a recent Waiting on a Wednesday post. They both come out on March 6th (along with Children of Blood and Bone, another book I want to read!) and they’re guaranteed to arrive at my doorstep on the day of release. This is actually the first time I’ve ever pre-ordered a book, if that’s any indication of how much I want to read these ones.

The only question is, which one will I read first?!


Paperback:

17333223[1]23462649[1]

I’ve wanted to read The Goldfinch ever since I finished The Secret History. I feel like it might take me awhile to get to The Goldfinch, since its almost double (!) the length of The Secret History (which was a very long book) and I don’t have that kind of time commitment right now.

I’ve only ever read one other Neil Gaiman book (The Ocean at the End of the Lane) so I wanted to read more! Neverwhere seems like a good place to start. Eventually, I’d like to get to all of his books.


eBook (Kindle):

13537029[1]17675462[1]

Circe by Madeline Miller is one of my most anticipated releases of the year, so I wanted to start with The Song of Achilles! I love books that are based on Greek mythology, and I’ve only heard good things about this book.

I’m kind of nervous to read another Maggie Stiefvater book. Her writing is very pretty, but I find her books to be too slow and introspective for my liking. From what I’ve heard, The Raven Boys is very character driven, which is usually a big draw for me. People rave about this series, so I wanted to give it a chance!


If I ever finish Strange the Dreamer and The 7 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, I might even be able to crack into these before the weekend!
