Library Checkout – March 2017


Another month just about over, which means it’s time to look at how we used the library via Charleen @ It’s a Portable Magic.

I felt like I was in the library all the time this month but the actual reading shows that I didn’t get through whatever I brought home very quickly. I bought a lot of books this month (bad, bad) and was excited about a lot of them. In a way you could say that I was just sticking to my blogging goal of reading the books I already have?

Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory
Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (I’m a proper Canadian now, guys!)

The Sellout by Paul Beatty
Queen Margot by Alexandre Dumas (I got 200 pages in and just did not care. However, I recently found the non-fiction version of the story and the showdown between Catherine de Medici and her daughter, Margaret of Valois and I’m super excited about it)

Returned unread
none, yet…

Currently out
The Lights of Paris by Eleanor Brown (anyone read this? I loved The Weird Sisters but have been avoiding this for some reason…)
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter

On hold
Sisi by Alison Pataki (I really really liked the first one, The Accidental Empress)
Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay by Elena Ferrante (conversion complete)

There you have it. Kind of a low-key library month. If you used the library this month, visit Charleen to link up!

  1. I still need to read Three Sisters, Three Queens… although I only just The Taming of the Queen a couple months ago, so by the time I get to this one, she’ll probably have another out and I’ll still be behind.

  2. Woohoo! Margaret Atwood!
    I feel so bogged down in library books right now that I don’t have any time to write about it. But I want to, so I will try…

  3. I’ve gotten myself into a pickle by trying to NOT act on that “must have it now” feeling that results in putting too many books on hold at the library, and by, instead, putting them on a “wishlist” with my library account, which however, expires in two years (who knew) so as I started this (bad!) habit about two years ago, now they are all arriving and I am swamped. Needless to say, this seemed like a brilliant idea at the time. But, I did learn that I can do without them right away! (This is a nice problem to have really, just a little silly.)
