Library Loot #2

Library Loot is a weekly event hosted by two bloggers, Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading, that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

I went to the library over the weekend and took out more books than I meant to… I was only able to finish about half of the books I took out last time, but that is nothing out of the ordinary for me.

  • Aya by Marguerite Abouet: I like graphic novels. I like reading POC authors. That was all the criteria I needed to pick this up!
  • Blank Canvas: My So-Called Artist’s Journey (Volume 2) by Akiko Higashimura: I started reading this series last year and never continued it. Luckily, I saw the next volume available!
  • The Cybernetic Tea Shop by Meredith Katz: This is a slim volume, but I was intrigued by the blurb on the back. I’m not a huge sci-fi fan, but this seemed to have more of a slice of life vibe to it.
  • Devotion by Patti Smith: This is a book part of the Why I Write series. I like to browse the literature section. My reading bandwidth isn’t the greatest right now, so I decided on this book because it wasn’t too long.
  • Goodnight Punpun (Volume 1) by Inio Asano: I love this manga series. I’ve read it before, but I think enough time has elapsed for me to give it another read. This time I will be reading it with the official English translation instead of a fan translation. We’ll see if it holds up!
  • Introducing Literary Criticism by Owen Holland: Well… After all, I am an upcoming English Major! I don’t know if I’ll actually be getting a good head start with this, but I will try my best to read this.
  • It Never Happened Again by Sam Alden: Another graphic novel that I picked up on a whim. I liked how it was all done in pencil. That’s not something you see often!
  • My Pen is the Wing of a Bird: New Fiction by Afghan Women: This was a book that piqued by curiousity. I am looking forward to this one!
