Library Update 2/19/18

Hello and Happy Presidents' Day if that's a thing you celebrate. I celebrated by basically staying in bed as long as possible.

As it's getting on to the end of the month, it is time to update you on what is happening with my library account. Woo hoo!

I actually don't have anything checked out for me right now. I have a couple of things for my daughter, but none for me. So that was easily dealt with. Now for what I have on hold...

All three things I have on hold right now are for the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge I am actually really getting into this challenge this year. I didn't do it last year because I didn't think I would have time. This year, I'm going to give it a go because I will be done with school in September, so I'll have 3 months to catch up on the challenge if there are things I can't get to beforehand. But I've already read 3 books for the challenge this year!

Anyway, here are the books I have on hold:

Big Mushy Happy Lump
Big Mush Happy Lump by Sarah Andersen - This is a little book of cartoons that originally were published as Sarah's Scribbles webcomics. These little cartoons depict a young woman who is struggling with being a grown up. It's kind of funny, but also kind of sad. I have been there, Sarah. I feel you. It meets the RHC goal to read a comic written and drawn by the same person.

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie - I want to see the movie, but I want to read the book first. Also, it meets the RHC goal to read a classic of genre fiction. I think this counts as a classic mystery.

Princess in Theory

A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole - I don't read a lot of romance books, but this one meets the RHC goal to read a romance novel by or about a person of color. The main character in this book is African American. So there you go. I've heard good things about Alyssa Cole's romances, so I'll give it a shot.

And that's everything. My library account is actually pretty quiet right now. What does your library account look like?
