What I'm Reading: April 21
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?
You Don't Have a Clue: Latino Mystery Stories for Teens, edited by Sarah Cortez: SHORT STORIES!
The Hollow Girl, by Hilary Monahan: REVENGEEEEEEEEE!!!
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:
I am not proud.
