Is a bedroom a bedroom without a personal library in it? I think not! While I’ve brought plenty of books for my classes this semester (I had to get 11 for one, eeep!!), I had of course bring books from my personal library. Listed below are the 9 books I’m going to try to get to this semester. Hopefully, these won’t be the only books I read, as I have a library card for my college’s town’s library system and I do go home every so often, so I can swap books in and out from my bookshelves. As I write this post, Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer is waiting for me at home and Sarah J. Maas’s Tower of Dawn will be there soon!
The Girls by Emma Cline– I’ve seen The Girls everywhere since its release in 2016, so when I saw it on sale at the library for 50 cents, I picked it up immediately (it still had the Barnes and Noble bestseller discount sticker on it!).
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell– One of my reading goals of 2017 is to reread Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On. I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since I’ve first read it!
Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson– Jacqueline Woodson came to my school last year and she signed & personalized my copy of Another Brooklyn. Since it’s written in verse, I hope that it doesn’t take me too long to read.
The Breathless by Tara Goedjen– I received an ARC of The Breathless from Underlined at Book Con this year. I’m hoping to get to The Breathless before its release date on October 10th.
One Plus One by JoJo Moyes– My local library had some amazing sales this summer, so I picked One Plus One up with a few others for only 25 cents each!
A Short History of the Girl Next Door by Jared Reck– I received an ARC of A Short History of the Girl Next Door at Book Con this year, and I’m not sure I’ll get to it before its release date on September 26th. However, the book is definitely staying on my TBR list, and I might be read it in October for the Booksplosion book of the month.
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler– While I wasn’t the biggest fan of Sarah Ockler’s Bittersweet, I’ve seen Fixing Delilah float around the book community for a while and it was only 25 cents at the library.
The Walled City by Ryan Graudin– I’m pretty sure that I bought The Walled City before I went to school last year from Barnes and Noble. I really enjoyed Ryan Graudin’s Wolf by Wolf duology and everyone is loving Invictus, I’m hoping to read (and enjoy) The Walled City soon.
Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel- I met Meg Kassel at Book Con and she signed an ARC of her debut novel, Black Bird of the Gallows. The book came out of September 5th, and I think that this creepy, fantasy will be great to read around Halloween.
I, Eliza Hamilton by Susan Holloway Scott– I received an ARC of I, Eliza Hamilton from Kensington books, and I plan on this being my next read! If you’re new around here, I am a HUGE Hamilton so I am more than excited to read this ASAP.
