Books I’d Like to Get From the Library in 2019

Back in June 2018 I wrote a post for top ten tuesday about the books I was planning on getting from the library. From the seven I ended up reading two. Which is really not a lot. I think the downfall of those kinds of lists is that for me I really can’t reserve them all at the same time because I wouldn’t be able to read my own books. And by the time I get through some of my other library books I will have forgotten some of the others. Or others are just grabbing my attention a whole lot more.

Even so I still would like to show you some of the books I’d like to get from the library this year.

Read already from the library this year

Nyphon Rising, Wintertide and Percepliques by Michael J. Sullivan

As you can see I started this series from the library at the start of the year. The series has six books total but I own the fourth book myself from the library sale. I am reserving book three as soon as I return the current books I have out from the library so I can continue and finish this series this year.

Ancillary Justice, Ancillary Sword, Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie

I’ve never read anything by this author but I’ve heard only good things about this trillogy so i am just very curious. So far I think Provenance wasn’t translated to Dutch though so I won’t be able to get that one from the library. This is probably the next series I will tackle after the Sullivan one.

The Red Pyramid, The Throne of Fire and The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan

While I own a lot of Riordan books this one trilogy never quite appealed to me to read. However it does seem like the perfect fit for one of the fairytale retellings reading challenge bingo so here it is.

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
Fablehaven by Brendan Mill
Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Hello middle grade (except Inkheart which is YA).

The Twelve and The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin

Last year I read The Passage which I thought was just okay. However now that I am watching the tv show I might be more inclined to finally pick up the next two in the trilogy as I do find the idea so interesting.

Reading Challenge(65)

What books do you have out from the library at the moment? What would you still like to pick up from the library? Do you have a library wishlist?

  1. I want to get my hands on ‘Lethal White’ as well, but my library doesn’t have it. I loved ‘The girl who drank the moon’ and I would like to keep reading the trilogy of ‘The Passage’, I read the first a while back and have the second at home.

    1. Ah that sucks! They just translated it in Dutch so I am still waiting on the library order to come in but I figured I could reserve it in advance haha.
      I’m curious where The Passage storyline will go.

  2. Ik zou exact hetzelfde voor hebben als jij. Maar misschien helpen deze lijstjes op je blog wel. Dan kan je na een tijdje nakijken welke titels je vergeten bent. Op een gegeven moment ben ik gestopt met bij te houden welke boeken ik nog wilde lezen vermits die lijst steeds maar langer werd en ik er zelden aan toekwam. Maar nu ik ze niet meer noteer vergeet ik ze gewoon na een tijdje.

    1. Ik heb nu wel een redelijk goed idee van wat ik wil lezen van de bieb, de bovenstaande dus. Er zijn er natuurlijk nog veel meer maar ik wil me hier wel op focusen. 🙂

  3. I still have to read Warcross/Wildcard! I see it every time I go to the library and think I should pick it up and then get distracted. xD Same with The Girl Who Drank the Moon (except I own it, too, on my Kindle, which I try not to think about the TBR there because it’s sad).

    Right now, I’ve got from the library:

    Ivan the One and Only || Crenshaw || Wishtree (all by Katherine Applegate, because I love her)
    Warlock Holmes: My Grave Ritual
    Traitor to the Throne (with a hold on the third book in this series)
    The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window

    Plus my book club book for the month. Because I clearly have absolutely no inhibition when it comes to taking books out of the library. xD

  4. Yay for Inkheart! 👍✨

    I will be very curious what you will think about The Girl Who Drank the Moon. 🌒

    I still have to read (or rather, listen to) The Passage. People either seemed to love or be meh about that book. However, those who continued seem to be happy they finished the trilogy. 📚

    1. I knew you would say those first two lines. 😉

      Yeah I was mostly meh as to the first half of that book but liked the second half decent enough. I am very curious about the story line, more so now I am watching the tv show which is all still just the first half of the first book.
