Library Loot (May 10 to 16)


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?

What I got from the library this week:

Thirsty Mermaids – Kat Leyh

Three mermaids make their way onto land thanks to a transformation spell, but then soon realise they don’t know how to change back. Sounds delightful.

All the Living and the Dead – Hayley Campbell

Borrowed this as an audiobook. This is a nonfiction read about the death industry – embalmers, detectives, crime scene cleaners, executioners.

Exes and O’s – Amy Lea

A rom-com about a woman connecting with her exes. I was looking for a romance novel by an AAPI writer for AAPI month.

Our Stories Carried Us Here: Belonging in America and Mexico – Daniel Zueniga Gonzalez

Chlorine – Jade Song

So I didn’t intentionally set out to borrow two mermaid-related books, but Chlorine and Thirsty Mermaids just so happened to have caught my eye. This one is a coming-of-age tale/horror?

Stay True – Hua Hsu

A memoir about a friendship that’s cut short when one of them is killed. This book won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography (2022).
