I love love LOVE my local library. I became a patron again last year and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. I have the ‘plus’ membership, which means I get to keep the books for a year if I want to (which I never do, but it’s nice to not be on a time crunch constantly).
I never really do library hails, but since 2019 is about blogging more (for me), and I enjoy reading these posts at other people’s blogs, why not do one?
Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
I’ve never read a Brandon Sanderson book (yet!) I’ve also heard great things about his books. I’m someone that looooves character-driven stories and extensive world building, so his books are always recommended to me. I’ve heard that Warbreaker is a good place to start (before diving into the mistborne trilogy) so that’s the one I got from my library. Super excited to dive into this one!
We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
In 2017 and early 2018, this book was all the rage on Goodreads and Booktube. Not that crazy, considering it has a GORGEOUS cover. I saw this in my library and picked it up, because I wanted to see what this (old..) hype was all about! A lot of people whose reviews I trust have rated this book high, so I’m excited to try it.
Love Letters to The Dead by Ava Dellaira
I picked this book up because the format of it is intriguing. This book follows Laurel, who starts writing letters to dead people. This books gets quite mixed reviews on Goodreads, so I’m interested to see what I think about it.
The Nix by Nathan Hill
See, this is what I love about the library. If I see a book I find interesting, I can take it home without having to spend my hard-earned money on it. If I end up not liking it, it’s not a big deal. The Nix is such a book. The blurb calls this ”A hilarious and deeply touching debut novel about a son, the mother who left him as a child, and how his search to uncover the secrets of her life leads him to reclaim his own.” I have no idea
