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.

mailboxmonday This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

I had totally forgotten about this win @ Sera's Laughing through the Chaos. After reading the many warm reviews of this book, I'd love to read it too!


Balancing Acts by Zoe Fishman


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.

I had a slow library week. I guess I need to get through my last loot before I head for the next pile. My hold for Push just came through.
  1. Push by Sapphire: Last time I picked this book, I was neck-deep in work with no time to read any book. I'm glad that's not the case now. I can't wait to read this.
What do you think of any of these books?

I haven't read Balancing Acts, but it's gotten fantastic reviews. I really enjoyed Push, but it's gritty and difficult to read at times. Have a great week in books!

I bought Balancing Acts a few weeks ago. I need to read it :) Have a good week!
PUSH has been on my list for a while, but it's ALWAYS checked out of my school's library. That's a good sign though.
