Library Update July 22

Holy moly! The end of the month snuck up on me! Let's talk about what's happening in my library account.

Checked Out

The Terra-Cotta Dog by Andrea Camlleri - I enjoyed the first book in this series about a police detective in Sicily. So I checked out the second one.

Once Upon a K-Prom by Kat Cho - I think this YA romance about a KPOP idol will be perfect light reading for when I don't have much brain after surgery.

Mimi Lee Cracks the Code by Jennifer J. Chow - This third in the series may be slightly brainier than the YA book, but it's still pretty fun and cozy.

Jumping Sharks and Dropping Mics: Modern Idioms and Where They Come From by Gareth Carrol - I love learning about language. This one is pretty short, but I love to know stuff like this.

Mr. Malcolm's List by Suzanne Allain - Some channel somewhere has turned this into a TV show. When I saw that it was originally a book, I ordered it. Regency romance? Yes please.

Another Appalachia: Coming Up Queer and Indian In a Mountain Place by Neema Avashia - I'm most interested in the mountain place, but I'm hoping for some discussion of Indian food.

Priestdaddy by Patricia Lockwood - I've read about 75 pages of this. Her dad who was a Catholic priest was also a lunatic. Very interesting so far.

Disappeared by Francisco X. Stork - I have to read this for a video I'm making for the library Instagram. It's about missing girls in Juarez. I don't know why I haven't read this already.


Master of Iron by Tricia Levenseller - I am patiently waiting for the library to go ahead and process this sequel to last year's Blade of Secrets.

Welcome to St. Hell: My Trans Teen Misadventure by Lewis Hancox - This graphic novel will meet a BookRiot challenge to read a memoir by a trans author.

The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow & Liz Lawson - I'm looking forward to this mystery that uses Agatha Christie novels to solve the missing persons case.

That's it! I am pretty excited about this list.
