June Library Loves

Seriously, the CPL is killing me with my holds coming in.  Thanks Shannon for this check-in! I hope your library mojo picks up soon.    I’m starting with two books that I just finished that you should get on your library list too!

Dear Fang, With Love by Rufi Thorpe – This book definitely got me over the minor slump I was in after reading Girls on Fire.  Vera was delightful even as she broke my heart.  I thought the look at a non-traditional family dealing with mental illness was so well done.  

Roses & Rot by Kat Howard – This was dark and delicious and I was done in a day. Two sisters with a dark past and bright futures. Fairy tales and broken hearts – I loved it. The kindle edition is only $2! I might have to buy it.

Also read:

  • The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
  • Breaking Bad – The Final Season – Holy Intense!  We’re still talking about it!
  • Troublemaker by Lea Remini
  • A Gathering of Shadows (OMG so good) by V.E. Schwab
  • Charlotte Bronte: A Fiery Heart by Claire Harman
  • Nil by Lynne Matson (It only took 13 renewals!  Really enjoyed it)

Currently reading:

  • Flappers: 6 Women of a Dangerous Generation by Judith Mackrell – so fascinating!

Checked Out:

  • The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker (read and reviewed but need a refresher so I can read…
  • The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker
  • The Lorax
  • Mary Poppins (requested by the kid!)

  • Samantha’s Surprise by Maxine Schur
  • Hedgehugs by Steve Wilson
  • I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
  • The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald

Going back unread:

  • A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (don’t tell my husband I’m getting the ebook rather than read my own 500 lb hardcover)


  1. You weren’t kidding about the CPL burying you in books! This list is enormous.

    I remember thinking about the end of Breaking Bad for so long, and I’m jealous that you just got to experience it for the first time! I wish I could go back and do it again. 🙂
