“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!
No physical check-outs this week, but tons of other stuff to share!
The Best Lies by Sarah Lyu, audiobook narrated by Nancy Wu: This is my current listen, and I’m loving this YA psychological thriller about a toxic friendship. Can’t wait to see how it ends!
The Grief Keeper by Alexandra Villasante, audiobook narrated by Ana Osorio: I love the concept of this speculative YA fiction novel about grief, and am hoping to start it soon!
Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev, audiobook narrated by Soneela Nankani: I’ve been wanting to read this romance for the longest time, and I’ve been on the holds list several times but have never been able to actually start it.
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson, audiobook narrated by Emily Ellet: I’ve heard AMAZING things about this YA fantasy (that involves a library!) and am excited to listen, even though I tend to be more of a contemporary reader.
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho, audiobook narrated by Emily Woo Zeller: I’ve been trying to read more books that take place outside of the US, and have heard great things about this YA fantasy-romance set in Seoul!
Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim, audiobook narrated by Kim Mai Guest: This YA fantasy has been described as Project Runway meets Mulan, and I’m so here for that!
