“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!
I’ve had a busy couple of weeks, and had to slow down on my normal blogging schedule, but am getting back into the swing of things!
The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta: I’ve been super excited for another queer witch book, and I couldn’t resist checking it out when I saw that my library’s copy was on the shelf!
The Wise and the Wicked by Rebecca Podos: Queer, YA, magic, Russian folklore? This book combines so many amazing things!
Earth to Charlie by Justin Olson: Queer YA with alien abduction? This sounds like a perfect read-a-like for We Are the Ants, which is one of my absolute favorite books!
(Sensing a theme? I like my books as queer as I am.)
The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Anissa Gray (audiobook, multiple narrators): I’ve been trying to read outside of my YA comfort zone and have heard amazing things about this adult fiction title!
We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal (audiobook narrated by Fiona Hardingham & Steve West): I’m not sure I’ll have time to finish this YA fantasy that’s almost 15 hours long, but I’ve heard it’s amazing!
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia (audiobook narrated by Caitlin Kelly & Kate Rudd): This YA contemporary is my current audiobook and so far I’m enjoying it!
The Mighty Heart of Sunny St. James by Ashley Herring Blake: Ashley is one of my favorite authors, and I’ve been on hold for this ebook for so long!
Screen Queens by Lori Goldstein: A YA contemporary all about girls in STEM! Out on June 11.
Truly Madly Royally by Debbie Rigaud: Super excited for this YA royal romance with an interracial couple! Out on July 30.
Six Goodbyes We Never Said by Candace Ganger: A YA book with own-voices OCD rep (and an adorable cover)! Out on September 24.
Thanks Razorbill, Scholastic, and Wednesday Books respectively for the review copies!
