Time for a Library Haul!

In my effort to read more of my owned TBR, I have been spending a lot of time on my library’s app putting books on hold!

…Wait.

Look, I have a problem and the first step is to admit it *shrug*

A side effect of spending too much time on my library’s app is that I now have a stack of library holds that all came available around the same time, heh. So I figured, why not do a library haul! I’ve quite a mix of books in there and I’m excited about all of them.

The Stack

Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren: In my random quest to delve into a genre I don’t often read (adult romance), I decided to check out one of the big names in romance, Christina Lauren. And what better way to start than with their insanely popular 2019 release? Two people who hate each other end up sharing a super romantic honeymoon in a tropical setting. Sounds like it’s going to be a wild ride!

Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire: Definitely the most exciting book in my stack! This is the next installment in the Wayward Children series which features children returning from portal worlds and trying to readjust to the real world. Or, more accurately, trying to find a way back to their true homes. I’m mostly excited because my favorite character, Jack, is back!

Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert: Another romance that I’ve been wanting to read after reading/hearing several rave reviews! Honestly, this book is probably the reason that I decided to give romance a shot. The fact that it took FOREVER for my hold to come in tells me there may be something to all the hype! The story of a young black woman living with a chronic illness who decides to live it up after a near-death experience. It sounds like there’s a lot to love in this book!

After the Flood by Kassandra Montag: Honestly, the only reason I picked this up was because Jesse over at Bowties & Books has been raving about it in many of their videos. I love their reviews (so damn smart and funny!) and I’ve been interested in trying one of their faves, so when I spotted it on display at the library while picking up my holds, I snagged it. It sounds intense: the story of a mother risking it all to find her eldest daughter while also taking care of her youngest in a world transformed by rising floodwaters.

Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia: Have you ever read a synopsis that ticks almost all your boxes and just knew you had to read the book ASAP? That is what happened when I stumbled upon the Goodreads page for this book. A citywide treasure hunt? Check! Set in Boston with clues inspired by Edgar Allan Poe? Check! A “rag-tag” crew? Check! References to The Westing Game, my childhood favorite?! ALL THE CHECKS, GIVE ME THIS BOOK!


Do any of these books sound interesting? Have you read any of these? Which should I pick up first? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
