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.

The Check-Ins

  • The Power by Naomi Alderman. I have SO MANY thoughts about this book and don’t worry, I plan on writing a full review. It’s definitely worth picking up for the discussion potential alone in my opinion.
  • Bonfire by Krysten Ritter. I really wanted to like this thriller, but the plot went to some truly ridiculous places in my opinion. However, the writing was pretty compelling and if Krysten Ritter writes more in the future, I’ll definitely pick it up.
  • This is Really Happening by Erin Chack. Interesting collection of essays by a Buzzfeed writer.
  • My Friend Dahmer by Derf Backderf. This was a pretty interesting graphic novel, especially for people who are into true crime, like I am.
  • Far From the Tree by Robin Benway. This is the only book I’ve returned to the library unread lately. I’m still super excited to read this book, but while I had it out the kindle version went on sale, so I decided to just buy it. I don’t always do that, but I like Robin Benway’s writing so much and I honestly expect to love this book.


  • Like Water by Rebecca Podos. This book seems to be pretty under-the-radar, but when I have seen people talk about it, it’s all been positive.
  • Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire. I have been anticipating this book for SO LONG. I love all the Wayward Children books and I’m sure this will be no exception.
  • The War I Finally Won by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. I loved The War that Saved My Life when I read it a few years ago, and I had no idea another book was planned until I saw a review of this one.
  • Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills. I’ve read both of Emma Mills’ previous books, and thought one was just okay (First & Then) and absolutely LOVED the other (This Adventure Ends), so I’m hoping this one falls more along the line of This Adventure Ends for me.
  • Jane, Unlimited by Kristen Cashore. This is definitely a book I’m hesitant about since I’ve heard it’s super weird and reviews are very mixed, but I’m going to give it a shot.
  • A Line in the Dark by Malinda Lo. Do you ever know very little about a book, but can’t wait to read it anyway? That’s me with this book.

      Yeah, I return library books unread more than I care to admit! I’m trying to be better at being realistic with myself about how many library books I can actually read during the borrowing period!
