Library Haul | February 1, 2020

“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 don’t have too much to share this week, because I have so many library books and ARCs at home I need to get through!

Check Outs



Slayers & Vampires: The Complete Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Buffy & Angel by Edward Gross & Mark A. Altman: I stumbled upon this book at work this week and couldn’t believe that our library had a Buffy book I hadn’t read yet!




Don’t Read the Comments by Eric Smith: I’m already loving this YA contemporary about teen gamers that deals with toxic masculinity, doxxing, rape culture, and more. Audiobook checked out via the Hoopla app!

Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins: This is totally not a book I would normally pick up but I’m listening to it for the middle school book club I oversee at one of my libraries. Audiobook via the Libby app!

Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore: I love Anna-Marie’s books and was so excited to see this ebook available in the Libby app! I have a ton of ARCs to read so I’m not positive I’ll actually get to this one but I couldn’t resist checking it out.


Advanced readers copies

Blue Skies by Anne Bustard: a historical middle grade novel about a girl’s father retuning home after WWII. Out on March 1; thanks Simon Schuster Books for Young Readers!

The Lonely Heart of Maybelle Lane by Kate O’Shaughnessy: I took this MG contemporary home as soon as I saw the dreamy cover. Out on March 3; thanks Knopf Books for Young Readers!
