Library Book Haul


I’ve been on a reading roll lately! I’ve read seven books in just about a month (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Attachments, Bittersweet, The Impossible Knife of Memory, Under the Never Sky, Through the Ever Night, and Into the Still Blue) – so I’m hoping to get a few more books read before Baby arrives at the end of October. When I stopped at the library today to return other books, I found some really great reads. Here’s what I came home with:

1.  Catherine by April Lindner: I thoroughly enjoyed Lindner’s first novel, Jane, which was a modern-day retelling of Jane Eyre. I hadn’t even realized she had another novel out, so I’m most excited to read this book. It’s a retelling of Wuthering Heights.

2.  The Here and Now by Ann Brashares: Back in the day, I was a fan of Brashare’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants novels, so I’m hoping I’ll like this novel as well. Goodreads describes the novel as “An unforgettable epic romantic thriller,” so the style is going to be very different than her previous novels.

3.  Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige: I saw this novel on blogs and book lists and was curious about it. I’ve watched The Wizard of Oz, read Wicked, and saw the musical, so I’m interested to see where Paige takes the classic story.

4.  The Magic Room by Jeffrey Zaslow: This book was recently recommended to me, and I’m anxious to read it—especially because it was in the non-fiction section of the library. I don’t venture there very often! The book is about a family owned small-town bridal shop and the women who come into the shop to purchase their wedding gowns.

What books are you excited to read next?

  1. I’m glad you’re having a great reading month! All of these books sound really good. After I finish Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, I’m going to read The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater.

    • Thanks! Maggie Stiefvater wrote Shiver and Linger right? I keep picking them up at bookstores and then putting them back on the shelf! I can’t figure out if I’d like them. Have you read that trilogy? Would you recommend it?

      • Yes, she wrote Shiver and Linger. I actually haven’t read the series yet, so I’m not sure if I would recommend them. I would recommend The Raven Boys though. It takes a little bit to get into, but it’s a great story.
