“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!
All Summer Long by Hope Larson: I love Goldie Vance and was excited to spot another comic from Hope Larson on my library’s shelves!
Surfside Girls, Volume 1 by Kim Dwinell: Another cute graphic novel I spotted at the library this week! I love that it’s about girls who surf.
A Year Without Mom by Dasha Tolstikova: I’d never heard of this one before, but I was intrigued by the structure of a picture book for older kids and teens, so I wanted to give this one a try!
Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins, audiobook narrated by Karissa Vacker: After recently listening to Prince Charming, I was eager to start this one! I’m already half way through and loving this f/f YA romance.
Hope and Other Punch Lines by Julie Buxbaum, audiobook narrated by Jorjeana Marie, Robbie Daymond, & Julie Buxbaum: A YA contemporary about a girl trying to escape a shadow of fame made by a viral photo of herself as a baby taken on 9/11. This book sounds so interesting!
You Must Not Miss by Katrina Leno, audiobook narrated by Cassandra Morris: I’ve heard this book is weird and dark, which is my favorite combination, so when I saw the audiobook was available, I immediately checked it out!
Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens by Tanya Boteju, audiobook narrated by Soneela Nankani: I’m so here for this YA contemporary about a queer brown girl discovering drag culture!
All of my audiobooks this week are from the Libby app.
