What I'm Reading: April 21

 A pile of thirteen books I lugged home from the library; or, WHAT IS MY PROBLEM IDK IDK IDK

A pile of thirteen books I lugged home from the library; or, WHAT IS MY PROBLEM IDK IDK IDK

Yesterday, I mentioned that thirteen interlibrary loans came in for me.

Here's a list of what I hauled home:

The Witch Boy, by Molly Knox Ostertag: Because it looks great? And I'm always here for stories about how rigid gender roles/assumptions hurt everyone, etc., etc.

The Time-Traveling Fashionista On Board the Titanic & The Time-Traveling Fashionista at the Palace of Marie Antoinette, by Bianca Turetsky, and The Midnight Dress, by Karen Foxlee: I suspect that I requested these because I adored The Prince & The Dressmaker and so I wanted more stories about sewing and fashion?

Dream a Little Dream, by Kerstin Gier, The Murderer's Ape, by Jakob Wegelius, and Feather, by Rémi Courgeon: BOOKS IN TRANSLATION!

You Don't Have a Clue: Latino Mystery Stories for Teens, edited by Sarah Cortez: SHORT STORIES!

The Hollow Girl, by Hilary Monahan: REVENGEEEEEEEEE!!!

Listen, Slowly, by Thanhha Lai: I just read Inside Out & Back Again and LOVED IT.

Nothing Up My Sleeve & Ask My Mood Ring How I Feel, by Diana López: Just read Confetti Girl and WANTED MORE.

Juana & Lucas, by Juana Medina: Because it looks adorable?

In ADDITION to that, my co-worker brought Amazon's Read the World giveaway to my attention: NINE FREE BOOKS IN TRANSLATION, AHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Did I NEED to download all nine of them? No.

DID I? I mean. Do you even really need to ask?

It occurs to me that to some of you, the idea of lugging home thirteen library books and snagging nine free e-books probably doesn't sound like THAT big of a problem? So for context—and because maybe if I make it public it'll shame me into dealing with it—here's a picture of my current TBR overflow:

 HERE'S SOME CONTEXT; or, I have no business bringing more books into this house ever ever ever

I am not proud.
