As many of you will know (especially if you’ve been around for a while), I LOVE my library. The majority of the books that I read come from the library, and I can’t imagine what I would do without it. (Go get a library card, that’s what, because I seriously cannot afford 150+ books each year!) So when I stumbled on this meme, hosted by Shannon @ River City Reading, I totally had to join in. I mean, how could I not? IT’S A MEME. ALL ABOUT MY LIBRARY CHECKOUTS. THIS IS LIKE GETTING A PET DRAGON FOR CHRISTMAS A LITERAL DREAM COME TRUE.

So…. Let’s get started, shall we? 😉 I didn’t read as many library books in July as usual because for the #MakeMeRead Read-a-thon I only read books that I own (as I need to knock away some of those). I did read library books for the Biannual Bibliothon, though, so that helped me out quite a bit! Not to mention, though, that I went to camp for a week, so… I literally read next to nothing (maybe fifty pages of The Hobbit, which I still have not finished.) AHEM! I’m going to stop making excuses now and actually get to the prompts. (But just an FYI- all of this information comes from Goodreads/my head, and if you aren’t friends with me on there- Goodreads, not my head!- YOU SHOULD BE. I BET YOU CAN FIND ME HERE.) All of the books I’ve read are linked to their Goodreads pages!

  1. I looove your list of library books. It’s crazy how similar our reading tastes are. I MUST get around to finally reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower, being the sorta YA classic that it is and all. Did you like it?

    1. Thanks! Hahaha, isn’t it though? It’s ironic, because I hear about SO MANY books from you. XD
      Okay, YES. DEFINITELY YES. As a matter of fact, I literally just finished writing my review, and it’s going up right now….


    2. Okay OOPS I didn’t mean to post that yet. I got a little excited haha (not to mention confused by my schedule). But oh well, you and anyone else who sees that link can click on it now anyway! Sneak peek, eh? 😉

  2. Ohh you already have Heartless on reserve?! SO COOL. I wish my library bought that far ahead ahhhaha. Ahem. BUT OMG I LOVE MY LIBRARY TOO!! I basically go weekly and it’s my favourite thing of ever. Freeeee books. Plus there’s no downside if you hate the book, you can just send it back. No money wasted. :’) I also like how easy it is to read super widely. Because if I’m perusing the shelves I’ll often pick up something I wouldn’t have normally. SO EXCITING. 😀

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. Hahaha yes! Actually, I’ve had it on hold since February-ish… whistles Basically, as soon as someone puts it in the system, I can put a hold on it, but usually they don’t put it in ahead of time unless it’s super popular.
      YESSSSS!!! I usually go at LEAST once a week, if not daily to pick up MORE HOLDS BECAUSE JUST YES. Hahaha absolutely! Thanks! 😉


  3. I would love to have a great library near me, but even the biggest one here doesn’t have that many English books to begin with, let alone ones that I’m interested in 😦 So I don’t have a library card (not going to pay money if I don’t want to borrow anything anyway – it’s free until you’re 19) But I’m glad that you get to use your library so much 😀 This meme is perfect for you!

  4. READY PLAYER ONE, YES. I can’t wait for you to read it beams with glee … unless you don’t like it, in which case I will be forced to HUNT YOU DOWN and FORCE-FEED YOU CLINE’S SOUL.

    What did you think of The Rose and The Dagger by the way? I’m quite 50/50 about whether to pick it up or not.

    1. YASSSSSSSSS!!! Okay, I’m 99% sure I will at least LIKE, if not LOVE it. So hopefully I will not be eating any souls anytime soon.
      As for the Rose and the Dagger, it probably depends on what you thought of the first book. I totally loved the first book (it was just so unique) and the second was amazing too. The ending is a little cliche, but it’s worth it because HELLO CLOSURE.
