Library Trip: 1

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Quick backstory time: I just got out of a long reading slump {as in several years long} and during that time, I visited the library frequently, always got more books than I could chew without dying of gastritis, and never read any of them. So, as my delight with the literary was rekindled, I made myself a solemn promise: No more hoarding, no more late fees, no more library abuse. Seeing as I have a ton of books that I actually own that still need to be read, I've limited myself to five library books a month. 

Anyway, as you can probably tell, I went to the library today! I'll be making a Library Grabs video later today to showcase them properly, but I'll just list the titles quickly:

1. BEAUTY QUEENS by Libba Bray
2. EON; DRAGONEYE REBORN by Alison Goodman
3. ENCHANTED by Alethea Kontis
4. BEASTLY by Alex Flinn
5. HUSH, HUSH by Becca Fitzpatrick

All of these books are due for return on December 18, 2013. Don't forget!

Anyway, as you can tell, these are all YA titles. This is a personal first for me; I usually scattered my hauls with adult and childrens' books. Again, out of fear of encountering people I know at the library. {I don't know why, but I have an intense fear of seeing people I know in public places. For example, I saw a kid from my school on the library computers today and I literally did everything I could to avoid him. It sounds rude, but I couldn't help it. People terrify me.} Anyway, since I'm forcing myself to try to read YA without my snooty English professor attitude, I snatched up some tidbits that I'd heard a little bit about and left within ten minutes.
All in all, a pretty good library run for me. If you'd like the see the full video of me awkwardly trying to explain the books, I'll link it below:
