Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.
Happy Wednesday! Claire has the link-up this week.
What I got from the library this week:
It’s Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. So I’ve borrowed some books that are by Asian-American writers. It’s a bit harder to find ebooks by Pacific Islanders. But I’ve put a hold on a couple of physical books, hopefully they’ll come in before the month is up!
Maizy Chen’s Last Chance – Lisa Yee
A middle grade book which has a young girl moving to a Minnesota town, where her family are the only Asian-Americans. Her grandfather is ill and her mother needs to help out at the family restaurant.
We Ride Upon Sticks – Quan Barry
I’m curious about this book, which has to do with a hockey team who are descendants of some people involved in the Salem witch trials.
China Boy – Gus Lee
A memoir about a young Chinese boy growing up in San Francisco in the 1950s.
Mooncakes and Milk Bread – Kristina Cho
I love milk bread. That’s why.
I have no idea what witches, field hockey, and the 1980s look like when combined but We Ride Upon Sticks definitely has me intrigued to find out.
