Library Loot (October 12 to 18)


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! What did you get from your library this week? Let us know in the link-up or comments below.

What I got from the library this week:

Rainbow Rainbow: Stories – Lydia Conklin

In this delightful debut collection of prize-winning stories, queer, gender-nonconforming, and trans characters struggle to find love and forgiveness, despite their sometimes comic, sometimes tragic mistakes.

Gods of Want: Stories – K-Ming Chang

Startling stories that center the bodies, memories, myths, and relationships of Asian American women, from the National Book Award “5 Under 35” honoree and author of Bestiary

The American Roommate Experiment – Elena Armas

First line:

Someone was trying to break into my apartment.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow – Gabrielle Zevin

First line:

Before Mazer invented himself as Mazer, he was Samson Mazer and before he was Samson Mazer, he was Samson Masur – a change of two letters that transformed him from a nice ostensibly Jewish boy to a Professional Builder of Worlds – and for most of his youth, he was Sam, S.A.M. on the hall of fame of his grandfather’s Donkey Kong machine, but mainly Sam.
