Current Library Checkouts & Holds: March 2023

I like curating these posts about what I’m reading & hoping to soon borrow from the library 1) to encourage more people to use their library system and 2) it gives me my own look at what my reading taste seems to be lately. As per usual, I have my usual contemporary/contemporary romances, but an added touch of literary fiction apparently.


Off the Map by Trish Doller – I’ve really enjoyed Trish Doller’s contemporary romances over the past two years. They lean on the quiet & sweet side of contemporary romance as the main characters are typically dealing with some kind of loss or trauma, and the setting involves some form of travel. I just starting reading & I am already enjoyed her Ireland set release, Off the Map, following two characters who have instant chemistry as they travel through Ireland to a wedding. 

I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai – I Have Some Questions for You is going to be my ‘long’ read for the new week or so/alternate book in between reading my usual contemporaries. I have seen either RAVE or medium reviews for this literary fiction book following a woman who returns to her former boarding school to teach a two week course on podcasting & finds herself drawn back to the murder case of her school roommate. 


The Mostly True Story of Tanner & Louise by Colleen Oakley – I am SO excited for Colleen Oakley’s March 28th release, The Mostly True Story of Tanner & Louise. The premise sounds so fun & unique, following an eighty-three year old and twenty one year old who go from and the adventure that begins when Louise wakes up Tanner at 1 AM for an impromptu road trip. 

Pineapple Street by Jenny Jackson – Jenny Jackson’s debut, Pineapple Street, has gotten so much attention in my bookstagram/bookish circle. It was chosen as a GMA pick and featured in Bad on Paper’s Spring 2023 roundup. She’s the editor of some major titles, including Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow, & Tomorrow, & Tomorrow. Pineapple Street is a literary fiction novel set amongst a wealthy New York family and the 1%. 

Stone Cold Fox by Rachel Koller Croft – I like to pick up a thriller from time to time & I’ve seen a lot of attention given to Rachel Koller Croft’s debut, Stone Cold Fox
