Ever since I began working at the library, my addiction to books has reared its head. Back when my library would have a 30 item limit, I would easily reach that amount with the books I checked out. With the limit increasing to 50, this gave me more room to check out more items.
In order to hold myself accountable and to encourage more reading, every other month, I will share a library haul showing off the books I have from the library. Not only do I get content that I can consistently post, but I am motivated to read more because I don’t want a book to show up so often in these posts.
Some of the books listed below are one’s I have read before, and others were chosen from the Goodreads Choice Awards, or it’s for my reading challenge.
If you see a book that you want to read a full review on, let me know, and I’ll make sure that happens! Otherwise, I’ll stick to brief reviews on my Goodreads account.
