Because I saw them on blog posts and on Goodreads and they look good. And I really want to read them.

The suspenseful ones:
















The ghostly ones:




                 The (f)undead ones:
The apocalyptic "try to survive this" dsytopian future ones:



And one unique roadtrip read:


Now if only my library would pony up and purchase them first. Because

Happy Reading!

  2. I'm not familiar with most titles here but they sound interesting. Yes, I wish our libraries will purchase more titles especially those which need more attention. Hope your library will purchase those titles soon. :)

    1. I'll probably get their form response of "Thanks for asking, but we are unable to purchase this book at this time." :)

  3. I have two libraries I frequent. They're pretty good at getting new books in but I really hate when they don't. That's probably why I own so many books. Sigh!

    1. I know, right? I keep having to buy the books by library either won't (or can't) buy or borrow. It's very frustrating. And I'm running out of shelf space! :D

  4. Do you use/have access to Hoopla or Overdrive? I am able to access electronic and audio books via my library with the Overdrive app which has titles which are not available in physical form in the library. I prefer the book, but like you am unfortunately not able to buy every book I want to read!

    1. My library does have Overdrive, but their system isn't very user friendly. And I think it's sad that it's gotten to the point where sometimes the only way you can get a copy of a book is if its electronic. I like real books so much better!

  5. I gave up on our library years ago...they don't cover genres I like, don't get in all the new bopoks, and charge you money to order books in. I'll stick with Amazon!

    1. I can't believe your library charges you to order books in! At least mine doesn't do that. I just wish it bought a few less copies of the latest bestsellers and more copies of the books I want to read. :D

  6. I get frustrated when our library doesn't have the books I'm interested in. When I have it on my library list, I don't want to wait for a loan from another library. Nevertheless, I'm so grateful to our public libraries for making so many books available--for free. Well, except for the occasional fine. :)

    1. :D Yeah, I don't know what I'd do without my library, even with all its imperfections.

  7. I get bummed when my library doesn't have the books I want! I tend to request a lot of books on Overdrive, but I don't get my wish very often.

    1. Don't you hate that? I know I do. :)

  8. That's a great topic choice! There are always books I wish my library had. Sometimes they'll get a title if I request it, but not always, and rarely in a timely manner. OTOH, I can't complain; it's a large library system for a small city and its exurban environs, and they have a pretty good selection on the whole.

    1. I'd be lost without my library...I just wish it had every book in the world that I wanted to read. Haha! I think that's what they call heaven. :)
