Library Loot: Week of October 6
After promising myself to not go quite so overboard with interlibrary loan henceforth, last week I subscribed to the amazing Book Riot and got completely sucked into their excellent and seemingly endless stream of book recommendations. The long list of books I requested started coming in this week, so I’ll just be holed up in my room reading for the next few weeks. In case you were looking for me.
Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes
I’m actually not 100% sure about this one and may end up swapping it for Beukes’ earlier novel, The Shining Girls. Both seem a little violent for my taste, but come so highly recommended! Can anyone who has already read either one assuage my concerns (or warn me off!)?
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I actually found this one on the Indie Next list from IndieBound, not Book Riot, but all the same it sounds super-charming and very Beginner’s Greek-ish. I haven’t actually seen many books in that ilk (i.e. novels that are unapologetically romantic without veering into sex-obsessed romance novel or chick lit territory) in the intervening years, so I’m really looking forward to this one.
What did you all pick up this week? I still have five books en route to me as I type this, to prepare for further adventures in library books coming soon!
