A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup. I'd been checking their website every week to find if next week was going to be the week it opened. So when the notice finally came through last week, I was beyond thrilled. I was also very unsure what books to request from the library since I had gotten very used to reading online. Still, I had a few requested when they called me to schedule a one-hour window for pickup. I did request a ton of books after that though, so I expect a bigger bag this week.

Library Loot - Feb 03, 2010



Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures 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!

I'm guilty, yet again! Of going off to the library before reading the books I borrowed previously! And I'm off this weekend to pick more, since 3 holds just came through yesterday! We really should have had 48 hours in a day rather than the measly 24 hours, which just swim away way too fast! Apparently, we sleep 8 hours, and work 8 hours, then where are the remaining 8 hours?

I digress!

Anyways, this is what I picked last weekend:



  1. Precious by Sapphire. I was actually looking for Push, but my library only had the movie-tie-in edition. Does any one know if there's a difference between the two? I had previously read the first chapter, so I couldn't spot any differences. I hope it's the same as the original!
  2. White Oleander by Janet Fitch. I'm reading this book with Cheryl @ The Books I Read, for a Pen-Pal read in a Goodreads group. So I'm pretty excited about starting this!
What do you think of any of these books?

I think the movie tie-in edition is the same as Push - they're just trying to market of the movie's publicity. I've read both of those books and enjoyed them!
I have not read Precious, but did read White Oleander. I thought it was good, but depressing :(

I haven't read either of these - sounds as if they might be tearjerkers. Hope you enjoy them.:)

Kathy, thanks for clearing that one!

Diane, I did hear it's depressing, so I want to balance it with light reads before and after it! Hope it works! :)

Juju, I guess I better!

Michelle, can't wait to hear what you think of it!

Cat, thanks! :)
