November 2022 Library Update

Some stuff is moving on my library list. Let's check it out.


Art of the Board

The Art of the Board: Fun, Fancy Snack Boards, Recipes for Entertaining All Year by Olivia Carney - I got a charcuterie board for my birthday. I have a cookbook, but I thought I'd get another one, but they are pretty much the same. Apparently, there is only so much you can put on a board.

Wotakoi 2

Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For Otaku Vol. 2 by Fujita - I enjoyed the first volume of this series, so I ordered volume 2. The story is about a woman who is totally into video games (otaku is a Japanese word that basically means "nerd"). She tries really hard to hide her nerdiness at work, so no one knows. She finds that she is working with a man she went to middle school with who is also totally into gaming. His two friends are also nerds in their various ways. They form 2 couples and this is their nerdy story.


Loveless Alice Osman - This is the book I'm reading instead of A Snake Falls to Earth for an Asexual main character. I think it's about a girl who isn't into dating and making out the way all her friends are. She goes to college and finds out about the Asexual/Aromantic segment of the LGTQ spectrum.


Passive Programming

The Passive Programming Playbook: 101 Ways to Get Library Customers Off the Sidelines by Paula Willey and Andria L. Amaral - This was recommended by the Youth Services department manager so all the youth staff put it on hold. I'm number 6 but we only have 2 copies. Sigh.

Spy X Family

Spy X Family, Vol. 1 by Tatsuya Endo and Casey Loe - This looks like a fun little manga series. The main character is a spy. For his next mission he has to infiltrate and elite private school, therefore he must acquire a wife and a child. The woman he choses for his wife turns out to be an assassin and the child they adopt is a telepath. What could go wrong? I'm number 11 on the list. We have 8 copies.

Going Rogue

Going Rogue: Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine by Janet Evanovich - I am number 180 on the hold list. We have 80 copies. I will eventually get my hands on a copy of this book. Until then, it will continue to turn up here.

There we are. It looks a little different from last month. My problem is that, although have nearly 400 books at home that I haven't read, when I see books come through the library, I really want to read those right now. I try to sprinkle a few library books in with my reading my shelves and reading my NetGalley ARCs. I am definitely on the struggle bus.
