I don’t know how, but we’re sailing into May! Shannon @ Rivercity Reading keeps inspiring me to go to the library – mostly so I can participate in the Library Checkout. Anytime you can get an easy blog post, you do it.
Library reading in April wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible either. I anticipate more library usage in the future as we get serious about this moving thing. The books that I did read from the library were underwhelming but I feel like I still have a bunch out that could be great.
You may be wondering why I’m still using the library when I have a veritable library of unread books at home. I don’t have an answer except I’m a greedy reader and I’m doing my part to keep circulation numbers up.
Library Books Read
Girls of Riyadh by Rajaa Alsanea (wanted it to be like Crazy Rich Asians, it tried but wasn’t)
The Secret Life of Violet Grant by Beatriz Williams (strong ending, before that was kind of meh)
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas (still mad)
One Plus One by Jojo Moyes (mostly charming but am hoping the next one of hers I read doesn’t involve a poor, struggling woman who falls in love with the rich man she’s working for)

Flappers by Judith Mackrell
Twain’s End by Lynn Cullen

You know I rarely put anything on hold. Still true.
