Library Love is a recurring post in which I share each week’s bounty from my public libraries.
Oh, y’all, I’ve got some good reads this week! While I didn’t make it to the actual library, I scored big-time with both my local library’s digital library and with the digital library at The Free Library of Philadelphia (y’all, if you have a Kindle or other e-book device, it is SO worth the $50 out-of-towner yearly fee). The Boy is still working on his book hauls from the last couple of weeks, and his iPad broke a while back so he can’t benefit from e-books right now, anyway, so he was left out this week. He’ll get over it, I think. Let’s take a look at my haul:
- Frog Music by Emma Donoghue
- Come Home by Lisa Scottoline
- Hyde by Daniel Levine
- Hush Little Baby by Suzanne Redfearn
- The Spinning Heart by Donal Ryan
- We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler
- The Last Telegram by Liz Trenow
- The Roots of the Olive Tree by Courtney Miller Santo
- Lies You Wanted to Hear by James Whitfield Thomson
Emma Donoghue absolutely rocked my world with her novel, Room, so of course I have to check out her latest, Frog Music. The premise of Hyde is awesome: Hyde as a reluctant hero? Can’t wait to see how that plays out. I’ve got another Scottoline novel this week – she’s usually a good bet. I checked out The Spinning Heart in honor of a fellow book blogger I know from Ireland… gotta represent my peeps, right? The rest of the haul is a group of novels I’ve been wanting to read for a while, so I’m anxious to delve into all of them, as well. Speaking of which, I’ve got to get to it. Happy Reading, y’all!
Do you have a special book you’re planning to read this weekend?
