Library Checkout is a monthly library-use meme hosted by Rebecca at Bookish Beck. Please do visit her blog, she always reads so diversely (and in massive quantities, too!) Here is a snapshot of my library usage in November:
LIBRARY BOOKS READ:
There There – Tommy Orange ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
The Death of Mrs. Westaway – Ruth Ware ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
The House at Sea’s End – Elly Griffiths (Ruth Galloway mystery #3) ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ I am LOVING this series!
Dark Sacred Night – Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch mystery #31/Renée Ballard #2) ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ I don’t know how Connelly does it. He’s a MASTER of compelling, propulsive writing. I still care about Bosch 31 books later. I’m excited to see the new direction he’s taking now that he’s partnering with Ballard.
I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life – Ed Yong ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Unsheltered – Barbara Kingsolver ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ (Review to come)
When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice For Difficult Times – Pema Chödrön ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row – Anthony Ray Hinton
A Room Full of Bones (Ruth Galloway #4) – Elly Griffiths
CHECKED OUT, TO BE READ:
Dare to Lead – Brené Brown
Spy School – Stuart Gibbs (middle-grade fiction – I’ve been meaning to get back into reading MG fiction for a while now)
IN THE HOLDS QUEUE:
The Library Book – Susan Orlean
Becoming – Michelle Obama
Fox 8 – George Saunders
Gmorning, Gnight!:Little Pep Talks For Me and You – Lin-Manuel Miranda
Go Tell it On the Mountain – James Baldwin (My Classics Club spin book!)
Plus, 6 more books on hold that I’ve had on hold for a while now and keep pushing back using my library system’s “suspend” function. I’m starting to wonder if I really want to read these after all! It might be time to let some of these go.
Anything from my selections look interesting to you? What have you checked out from your local library lately?
