Last library visit I ended up with a ton of young adult fiction. This visit I have all nonfiction, except for one fiction title.
What did I pick up this trip? Three memoirs: Answering 911: Life in the Hot Seat by Caroline Burau, In Stitches by Anthony Youn, and Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman. So, I’ve got a rookie 911 operator, a plastic surgeon, and a Smith graduate sentenced to a year for drug smuggling and money laundering. Hopefully at least one of them is a winner, and it’d be great if they all were. I’m most excited by the 911 dispatcher book. I also have Carry On, Warrior: Thoughts on Life Unarmed by Glennon Melton, but I’m not entirely sure if this is a true memoir, or more a collection of essays that are memoir-like. So I possibly have four memoirs.
I’ve also got two cookbooks: Weelicious: 140 Fast, Fresh, and Easy Recipes by Catherine McCord, and The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook by Kris Holechek Peters. I had the Weelicious book out before, but had to return it when I’d barely done anything beyond glancing at the table of contents. And I am always looking for new vegetarian dinner ideas.
My final nonfiction book is Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success by Adam Grant. I wish I remembered how it made it onto my list, because I have no idea. It doesn’t even sound familiar, but I had it on hold, and it finally arrived.
And my solitary fiction book is Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. It’s the final book in the Graceling trilogy, and I’m curious to see how she resolves various plot lines.
Have you added anything new to your bookshelves lately? You know I love to hear about new books, so please share!
