“Library Haul” is my weekly post where I share all the things I brought home from the library this week! One of my favorite things about being a librarian is bringing home stacks of exciting new reads: books I snagged as soon as they hit the “New arrivals” shelf, hidden gems I stumbled upon in the stacks, digital books I found on Libby, advanced readers copies that arrived in the mail, and more. Even though I don’t always get through all the reads I bring home, I’m excited to share them!
Inventing Victoria by Tonya Bolden: This historical YA about a Black girl in Reconstruction America was my only physical check out this week, because I still have so many library books sitting at home! But I did spot a bunch of other books that I’m planning to check out soon.
Anger Is A Gift by Mark Oshiro: I’ve been on the holds list of this one for a while, and was super excited to finally get it this week. I love that the audiobook is narrated by the author, and I can’t wait to start it.
The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf: One of my most anticipated reads of February! I was so glad when I saw that the eBook was available in Libby and immediately checked it out.
The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory: After being on the holds list for literally MONTHS, I was ecstatic when I got the notification that this audiobook was ready for me! I’ve heard such good things about Jasmine Guillory and will be starting this one as soon as I finish my current audiobook.
All of my digital items this week were checked out from Libby by OverDrive.
The Art of Losing by Lizzy Mason: This YA novel about sisterhood, heartbreak, and drunk driving has been on my TBR for months, and it’ll be my next read.
Watch Us Rise by Renée Watson & Ellen Hagan: This feminist YA contemporary is one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and I’ve already gotten halfway through. I can’t wait to finish this one!
Right As Rain by Lindsey Stoddard: This middle grade novel about grief and feeling like an outsider looks promising!
That Time I Loved You: Stories by Carianne Leung: A collection of short stories centered around different characters within a Toronto subdivision. I’m not sure I’ll actually get to this one, but it sounds interesting!
