may library haul:
actors anonymous by james franco • burial rites by hannah kent • juvie by steve watkins • this song will save your life by leila sales • mr penumbra’s 24-hour bookstore by robin sloan • in the woods by tana french
Yes, I went to the library despite having a bunch of books existing left to read but y’know how it is. Right? Right? I’ve been reading a lot of the books I got off Netgalley and its taken a toll on me. I’ve gotten into this state of mind where I worry that the books I got will go unread and unreviewed, so I’ve binged-read them. Hence my trip to the library to just relax and calm myself. They will get read, don’t worry — I’ve gotten some fantastic books (read and reviewed!) off Netgalley this month!
I’m already halfway through Mr Penumbra’s and I am absolutely in love with it right now. I’ve also read a few pages of Juvie but didn’t manage to finish it the last time I check it out of the library. The boyfriend and I almost bought Actors Anonymous at the book sale the last time, but the overwhelming amount of bad reviews made us decide otherwise. Nevertheless, I decided to check it out just to see what I think of it. I’m excited for In The Woods and This Song Will Save Your Life — I’ve heard nothing but good things about both of these books and yes, that is the large print of Burial Rites. Why do I need large print? Who really knows….
