Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. I absolutely adore the libraries here in Austin so I’m excited to take part in this weekly meme! Since this is the first time I’m participating I’m going to list all of the books I currently have checked out.
Olympos (Omnibus) by Aki – I’ve been trying to pick up more graphic novels at the library. I loved the style of the artwork when I flipped through it so I had to check it out.
Attack on Titan Guidebook by Hajime Isayama – I’ve been reading this series on and off for a few months now. I alternate between thinking I finally know what’s going on and realizing I might have been wrong and getting characters confused. I’m hoping this will help me understand the series better since I do like it – I just feel a bit lost.
The Panem Companion by V. Arrow – I’m a huge fan of The Hunger Games and was instantly sold on a book that explores the world and culture more.
Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide by Michelle Rowen and Richelle Mead – I practically devoured this series and still find myself thinking about it. It became an unexpected favorite pretty quickly. That said I have almost zero interest in watching the movie as I’ve heard it’s not that great. I also wasn’t very impressed with the few trailers I’ve seen. I’m hoping to get a little more of the world and the characters through this book though!
Divergent Thinking: YA Authors on Veronica Roth’s Divergent Trilogy
by Leah Wilson (Editor), V. Arrow, Janine K. Spendlove, Elizabeth Wein, Blythe Woolston, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Mary Borsellino, Rosemary Clement-Moore, Debra Driza, Julia Karr, Dan Krokos, Elizabeth Norris, Maria V. Snyder – I have such bittersweet feelings about the Divergent series. I loved and possibly adored the series and then hated the ending with a passion I wasn’t aware I could actually feel toward a book. That said, I am really curious to learn more and have already really enjoyed studying the maps included in the book.
Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini – I’ve been listening to audio books more recently and I kept seeing this on my libraries virtual website so I’m giving it a shot. It’s interesting so far and gives a real eye opening look into the world of Scientology.
