Library Haul (Apr. 22, 2014)

I work in a library which means I see LOTS of books I want to read RIGHT NOW. It’s very frustrating to me that I can read 500 pages an hour; I’d be able to read ALL the books I want instead of a third of a them. Le sigh.

That said, I do have to haul these books home on three buses (and then back again on three more to return them), so I’m slightly more picky than I might have been otherwise. Here’s what I’ve managed to restrain myself to:
seven for a secret the family way the sugar queen
Seven for a Secret by Lyndsay Faye. Am loving this SO MUCH.
The Family Way by Rhys Bowen. We just got the newest book in this series and it looked SO good– historical mysteries are my jam, y’all should know that by now. Anyway, this is the only other book we had in that series, and even though it’s #12 I am hoping I don’t need to read the first 11 to understand it.
The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen. Rec’d by a coworker! It’s about a woman who reads stories to life somehow.

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean. My review of the first Rule of Scoundels book will be up later this week, btw.
Zorro by Isabel Allende. A coworker at my last library job kept telling me to read this and I never did. Now’s the time to do it!
The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner. After rereading the first book and LOVING it, I wanted to continue onward in the series.

The Life of Amelia Earhart by Mary S. Lovell. I used to devour any and all books about AE when I was a kid.
Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan. Apparently the ending of this gives people fits? If it’s anything like the ending of the first book, I am not surprised.
Below by Meg McKinlay. A book about a drowned town and two teenagers who are mysteriously connected to it. What’s not to love?

death of a dude wheels of change seven tales of trinketshayla hacker
Death of a Dude by Rex Stout. Y’all, this is a large print book and all I could think was “omg I can actually read it this is amazing.”
Wheels of Change by Sue Macy. A history of women and bicycles! This is an amazing book which just won some awards, too.
The Seven Tales of Trinket by Shelley Moore Thomas, whose cover is throwing off shades of Catherine, Called Birdy but I think it’s actually a fantasy book. Maybe?
Who is Shayla Hacker? by Evan Kilgore. I read this all in one day on Saturday and it was not worth it. Ugh.

What books do you have out from the library?
