Last year I didn’t pay an overly amount of time to the library. But now that I am picking up books here and there for Merijn to learn to read and to read to him I have been in the library more again. Mostly I hadn’t been looking much at the library because I have so many of my own books still to read next to the arc pile that never seems to diminsh.
But now that I am picking up books to read to Merijn I’m browsing the children’s book section there more and there are always so many good looking books. So I’ve decided on a small list of books I definitely want to try getting from the library this year. This isn’t a hard goal or anything. Just something I want to pay some attention to.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (reread)
The Wicked King by Holly Black
The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black
The Stolen Heir by Holly Black(NOT COMING OUT UNTIL JUNE IN DUTCH)
I actually read The Cruel Prince around the time it came out but then was never motivated to read on. But with more coming out around it and The Stolen Heir sounding good I want to give this another try. Since it has been translated here in the Netherlands I can reserve them from the librarly.
Last year I read The Language of Ghosts and Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries and enjoyed both immensely. These two have been translated so I can pick them up from the library. Maybe they’ll also be of interest to Merijn in the future.
Amari and the Great Game by B.B. Alston
I read the first book when it came out but hadn’t gotten around to the next book. The series is being translated so I can pick this up from my library!
Het Ministerie van Oplossingen by Sanne Rooseboom
This has been sounding like a great book series and one I think I might read with Merijn during the day here and there. If he’s interested in anyway.
