My January 2018 Library Book Haul

Hello friends! It's been over a week since I last posted on this here blog and the new year has happened, so Happy New Year! I hope things are going well for you. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now with balancing all the different things going on in my life right now, but the year is definitely off to a good start!

I had the chance to stop by the library after work, right before the beginning of January. I love to stock up on a stack of good books and work my way through them throughout the month. The goal for this month is (I'm slightly embarrassed to say) shorter reads. I did not make my goodreads reading challenge for last year and I'm hoping to start this year off on a better foot!

Here's what I found (genres will be marked in parenthesis):

  1. The Boy is Back by Meg Cabot (Adult)
  2. This One Summer (YA/Graphic Novel)
  3. P.S. Longer Letter Later  by Paula Danziger and Ann M Martin (Middle Grade)
  4. The Secret Life of Mary Anne Spier by Ann M Martin(Middle Grade)
  5. Kristy at Bat by Ann M Martin (Middle Grade)
  6. Mystery of Crocodile Island by Carolyn Keene

Maybe reading children's books for my reading challenge is cheating? What do you think?

But to me, cheating seems like a harsh word. I consider it research because I am currently working on my own middle grade book series about a group of friends in middle school. Any book I read helps me work on the characterization for the friends I am writing about!

Have you been to the library lately? If so, what have you been reading lately?

Yours truly,
Marian Elizabeth
to keep up to date with all my latest ramblings! :)
