Library Update September 2019
Oh boy. This one might be a doozy. I may actually have a lot happening on my library account this month. I will group all the cookbooks into one paragraph to avoid having a huge post.
Books Checked Out:
Bloom by Kevin Panetta - This is a graphic novel I'm reading for the Fall Into Reading Readathon.
Call It What You Want by Brigid Kimmerer - This is the author that wrote A Curse So Dark and Lonely that I loved so much earlier this year. This one is a contemporary romance, so completely different from the Fantasy that was Curse. I want to see if she is good in both genres.
Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay - I'm got this one because a bunch of people in my reading group loved it, but I don't know that I'll be able to get to it anytime soon. It might have to go back until I have time.
Killing November by Adriana Mathers - This is the group book for the Fall Into Reading Readathon. I love a good boarding school book, so this has promise.
An American Sunrise: Poems by Joy Harjo - Harjo is the new poet laureate of the U.S. and she's from Oklahoma. I don't know why I decided to order this. I am not generally a fan of poetry. Oh well. It's short.
Spell on Wheels by Kate Leth - I've got this for the Fall Into Reading Readathon also. I'm not above reading graphic novels to fulfill challenges when I'm supposed to read 6 books in a week.
The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O'Neill - I read this last night and meant to bring it to work today and return it, but I forgot. It's a cute little children's graphic novel about a girl who finds a strange little dragon. When she returns it to its owner, he offers to teach her how to take care of tea dragons. She meets another girl who has lost all her memories and the become friends. It's cute. The art is especially adorable.
And then there are the cookbooks. America's Everyday Diabetes Cookbook, The Italian Diabetes Cookbook, The Mediterranean Diabetes Cookbook, The Diabetes Cookbook, The 12-Week Diabetes Cookbook, The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook. I haven't made anything from these yet, but there's hope.
Books on Hold:
American Royals by Katharine McGee - Where would we be if we made George Washington king, instead of president? This book tells that story.
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli - One of my dancers just finished this and loved it. I told her I'd read it.
Hey, Kiddo! by Jarrett Krosoczka - I have to give a short presentation on this one next week and I wanted a refresher.
The Swan Book by Alexis Wright - It turns out the book I read for one of my Read Harder Challenges doesn't actually meet the challenge. This one does. It's about an aboriginal Australian girl.
The Memory Police by Yoko Ogawa - I read a different book by this author a few years ago. This one is a dystopian about a city run by state police.
The Dutch House by Ann Patchett - I like Patchett. I wanted to get hold of this one early.
Twisted Twenty-Six by Janet Evanovich - Just a couple more months for this one.
Whew! That's the whole list! I've got a lot of reading to do. My eyes may have been bigger than my calendar. Oops!
