The Checkout Check-In

In the Checkout Check-In, I’ll be checking in with you guys about the items I’m checking back into the library. . . and everything I’m checking out. Consider it partially a TBR, partially an accountability post to myself to READ THESE BOOKS.

It’s been about almost two months since the last check-in, so here we go.

The Check-Ins

  • History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. I talked about this in my last mini-review post, but it was great & heart-breaking. I don’t think I liked it quite as much as More Happy than Not, but it still made me emotional.
  • A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab. PERFECTION. I love all these characters so much, saying goodbye to them was hard. However, this was SUCH a good and fitting ending.
  • Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley. I wrote a full review of this one, but let’s just say I was not a fan.
  • The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz. This book wasn’t perfect, but it had so many lovely parts.


  • A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers. I adored The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, so I can’t wait to read this companion novel. It’s a lot shorter than I thought it would be, so we’ll see!
  • Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera. I had to request this through interlibrary loan. It’s another book that’s a lot shorter than I thought it would be, and I think it will be a quick read.
  • Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall. I adore the cover of this book so much. I’ve heard pretty good buzz about this novel, which is about a teen girl living with agoraphobia who, as far as I can gather, strikes up a romance with the boy who moves in next door.
  • You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner. This was one of my most anticipated debuts, and again, I’ve heard such good things!
  • Star-Crossed by Barbara Dee. This MG about a bi girl having a crush on one of her co-stars in the school play sounds ADORABLE.
  • Geekerella by Ashley Poston. I am always up for giving any book about fandom a try. 2017 has really brought it with the fandom-related YA. I’ve loved both Queens of Geek and Radio Silence, so I’m hoping Geekerella will join their ranks.
  • Amberlough by Lara Elena Donnelly. To be frank, I know very little about this book. I’ve just seen a lot of good reviews, and it was there. That’s often my justification for library books.
  • All Our Wrong Todays Elan Mastai. Another one I know little about, but it doesn’t take me much to hook me on a book about time travel.

Hold overs:

  • Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. I have renewed this book NINE TIMES I just need to read it before I run out of renewals.
  • The Swan Riders by Erin Bow. I checked this out from the library the same day I checked out Gemina, back in NOVEMBER, so. . .
  • 10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac.
  • One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid.




Get Your Ebooks! (37)

I woke up so much later today than I normally do and I feel fantastic. Finally, a good night’s sleep! That means I’m writing this post and having my coffee much later than usual, but it’s a trade-off I’ll take. Under $2 Under $5
