October 2016 Library Update

A lot has changed since my last library update. I've gone a little holds crazy. And checkout mad. Well, let's just look at it, shall we?

Checked Out Right Now

Slade House by David Mitchell - I finished this last weekend, but I'm keeping it around for book club on Friday.

Voracious by Cara Nicoletti - I have started this one. It is a quick read because I don't read the recipes at the end of each chapter. I didn't get the book for cooking tips. I got it to fulfill another challenge.

Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix - I really can't remember why I thought I should get this. It is a horror story set up like an Ikea catalog. It's a cute gimmick, and the book is fun to look at, but I really am not into horror, so...

Killing and Dying by Adrian Tomine - I've heard this is a fantastic graphic novel. Some of the drawings look like photographs.

Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King - This author is coming to Tulsa next week, and I plan to go to the event. I may or may not get to this book before then.

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, Dumplin by Julie Murphy, Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Perez, Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson - These are all Sequoyah Award books I have brought home. Sigh.

Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling by Tony Cliff - This is the second in a fun graphic novel series about a young adventurer in the early 1800's.

A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean - I loved the trashy romance by this author I read last month, so I ordered the first in another series.

Ghostland: an American History in Haunted Places by Colin Dickey - I heard about this on a BookRiot podcast and was fascinated. What a great October book, amirite?

On Hold

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice, A Scot in the Dark by Sarah MacLean, Turbo Twenty-Three by Janet Evanovich - These were all on the hold list last month. There they still are.

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho - This is the BookRiot readalong book. It's been on my TBR list for a few months, so I figure now is as good a time as any.

Lumberjanes Vol. 5 by Noelle Stephenson - I just read the third one in August I think. It's a fun series.

Food Freedom Forever by Melissa Hartwig - Oh food. How I love you. But I think it might be a codependent relationship.

Rat Queens Vol. 3 by Kurtis J. Wiebe - Another graphic novel series about badass girls.

Okay, that's about it. Any thoughts?
