Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where book bloggers are invited to share their top ten lists centered on a certain theme.
This week is National Library Week, and as a librarian, I’m super excited! I thought it would be fun to share my ten most recent library check-outs. If you’ve ever wondered what kinds of books a librarian checks out, now’s your chance to find out!
- Disability Visibility by Alice Wong: I’ve heard incredible things about this anthology of essays by disabled authors, and after a long hold list I was super excited to finally check it out!
2. This is Just a Test by Madelyn Rosenberg & Wendy Wan-Long Shang: As a biracial Asian Jew, I’ve been really looking to read more books about Asian Jews. This MG novel’s been on my radar for a while and I finally checked it out!
3. Allergic by Megan Wagner Lloyd & Michelle Mee Nutter: I was totally that kid who was allergic to everything so I had to check this graphic novel out! I can’t wait to start it.
4. How to Catch a Queen by Alyssa Cole: I loved Alyssa’s thriller debut, When No One is Watching, but I’ve never read any of her romances! So when I spotted this one on our New Books shelf at work, I had to grab it.
5. Vampires Never Get Old edited by Zoraida Córdova & Natalie C. Parker: I’m a sucker for vampire books, and this one includes so many of my favorite authors!
6. This Book is Anti-Racist by Tiffany Jewell & Aurélia Durand: I love reading new kids books at my library to keep up to date on children’s literature. This anti-racist nonfiction title is super colorful with gorgeous illustrations!
7. A Phở Love Story by Loan Le: I get to order the teen books for my library, and this was one that I put a hold on as soon as I ordered it because I love food-related books! I was so happy when it finally arrived at the library.
8. The Whole Story of Half a Girl by Veera Hiranandani: This is another MG novel about a biracial Asian Jewish character! This one follows a half-Indian, half-Jewish girl and I’ve heard great things about this author.
9. My Basmati Bat Mitzvah by Paula J. Freedman: This is yet another one about (you guessed it!) a mixed Asian Jewish kid. This follows a mixed Indian & Jewish girl preparing for her bat mitzvah!
10. Lupe Wong Won’t Dance by Donna Barba Higuera: This MG novel about a biracial Mexican & Chinese girl obsessed with baseball has been on my radar for a while! As soon as I saw it on the New Books shelf in the children’s section, I had to check it out.
What was the last book you checked out from the library?

Let me guess. You are a teen librarian? This sounds like a list of books I would have read back when I was running a high school library. I really gained a lot from THIS BOOK IS ANTI-RACIST. My TTT is off-the-board this week
Allergic sounds so adorable! I have A Pho Love Story on my Scribd, and I can’t wait to listen to it!
There are so many great authors in Vampires Never Get Old! Sounds like one to check out sometime.
May you enjoy all of these books.

My Basmati Batmitzva was pretty good. I hope you enjoy!
