Current Library Checkouts & Holds: January 2023 Edition

Celebrating this first Friday of the year with a quick post featuring three books I’m currently borrowing & four books I currently have hold from the library!


The Light We Carry by Michelle Obama – Like the rest of the world, I really enjoyed Michelle Obama’s Becoming and couldn’t wait to read her follow-up book, The Light We Carry. There are still many stories about her life and life post- Becoming, but the book has more advice and strategies for dealing with uncertainty.

Five Survive by Holly Jackson – Again like nearly every reader ever, I loved Holly Jackson’s A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series in 2022, so I’m looking forward to reading this YA crime thriller.

The Rewind by Allison Winn Scotch – The Rewind is a New Years-set book that I didn’t get to in that week between Christmas and NYE, but there’s still enough new year vibes for this mood read.


I featured Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun, The Reunion, and Begin Again (all January 2023 releases) in my anticipated books of 2023 post, but Rachel Hawkins’s The Villa was a recent addition. I haven’t yet read a thriller from Rachel Hawkins, but I’ve been seeing more & more rave reviews for The Villa, and it’s the Bad on Paper podcast book club pick for January.

What book(s) are you currently reading? Do you have any books currently checked out or on hold from the library? Share in the comments!

  1. I can’t wait for the new Finaly Donovan! I’m probably one of the only readers who has yet to read Becoming, but I only really started getting into non-fiction the past few years. I have a ton of NF books on my TBR for this year, I feel like they’re a nice palette cleanser between novels and I usually don’t review them on my blog (I read them just for me) so it takes some pressure off!
