Library Haul | February 16, 2019

“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!


Check Outs



Feminist Icon Cross-Stitch: 30 Daring Designs to Celebrate Strong Women by Anna Fleiss & Lauren Mancuso: Have I ever cross-stitched anything? No. Do I even know how to cross-stitch? No. Did I check this book out? Yes. (I’ve heard that it’s not too hard to learn, so I’ll at least take a look through this book and maybe give it a try!)

Clueless: Senior Year by Amber Benson, Sarah Kuhn, Siobhan Keenan, & Natacha Bustos: I love Clueless and had no idea that this graphic novel existed! As soon as I found out about it, (and that Amber Benson is one of the writers!) I immediately put a hold on it at my library. Can’t wait to dig into this one soon!

Space Boy, Vol. 2 by Stephen McCranie: I really enjoyed the first graphic novel in this series and am really curious to see where the story goes.






Roomies by Christina Lauren, audiobook narrated by K. C. Sheridan: Last week I listened to the audiobook of Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating and really enjoyed it, and I adored Autoboyography, so I wanted to try another Christina Lauren book.

A Heart in a Body in the World by Deb Caletti, audiobook narrated by Julia Whelan: This book has been on my TBR for MONTHS, and after being on the holds list for what felt like forever, I was ecstatic to see that it was ready for me!


Both of my audiobooks this week were checked out from Libby by OverDrive.


Advanced readers copies



Immoral Code by Lillian Clark: This contemporary YA book full of queer characters has been on my TBR for months. I’m not sure when I’ll get to it, but hopefully soon! Out on February 19.

In the Neighborhood of True by Susan Kaplan Carlton: So happy to see a Jewish historical novel that’s about something other than WWII! Out on April 9.

Bright Burning Stars by A. K. Small: I haven’t heard much about this YA ballet mystery, but it sounds really eerie and interesting! Out on May 21


Did you check out anything from your local library this week?

  1. I had no idea there was a Clueless graphic novel! That’s amazing and I’m so going to see if my library system has a copy. In the Neighborhood of True sounds amazing, and like you, I’m so pleased to see Jewish historical rep that isn’t WWII-themed. Obviously those stories are important too, but this sounds so refreshing and I can’t wait to read it!
