Borrowed Books

I hope you’ve all had a happy weekend (Happy 4th for those of you in the States!). Ours involved a lot of relaxing, a trail walk and of course preparing with a pre-weekend trip to the library. I don’t know what it is but every time the library is going to be closed for a holiday I act like I have to go get more books. Like I’m somehow going to run out of books to read. Ha.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOh and yes, I know I had talked about being on a library ban but those usually only last a couple of months. So I’m back to putting books on hold and checking out books. So these are the books from two recent library visits.

The three books on the bottom of the pile are graphic novels. I haven’t read but one graphic novel this year so when I saw a mention of these in a newsletter I get I thought it would be fun to check some of them out. Of course I put them on hold and they all came in at once.

I have The Nao of Brown by Glyn Dillon, Daytripper by Fabion Moon and Gabriel Ba and Shortcomings by Adrian Tomine. Have you read any of these?

The rest include The Complete Poetry by Maya Angelou, Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes, Hugo & Rose by Bridget Foley and Malice by Keigo Higashino. So poetry, fiction and crime. Gotta love the variety.

Not pictured because I left the book in my bedroom is Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King. That’s the one I’ve started reading as it’s for my mystery book group. It’s been ages since I’ve read a Stephen King book but just reading the first couple of chapters feels very familiar.

Let me know if you’ve read some of these and what you thought. I’m in the middle of a couple of books right now so I’ll tell you more about those soon. Hope you have a great week ahead!
