T10T: Most Recent Library Loans


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic was supposed to be about the last 10 books we added to our TBRs, but since I do the TBR Lows & Highs post every Sunday (which covers that topic), it’d be redundant! Instead, I decided to show off the last 10 books I brought home from the library.

2. Brick Shakespeare: The Tragedies — John D. McCann

6. Princess Princess Ever After — Katie O’Neill

      1. Oh, really? I’ll need to make sure I’m in the right headspace for it if I pick it up then! Also… I think you’d like Speedwell?! It’s Victorian era mystery with a sassy protag and a smokin’ hot counterpart! 😉


      1. I have no idea! I’ve read it at least three times, and couldn’t tell you a thing about it. Really weird. And it’s not even about the content because I’ve read other books on the same kinds of topics, and have no problem remembering those.


  1. I haven’t borrowed anything from the library for a bit now, mostly because I’m trying to focus on my physical TBR and also because I have an EXTREMELY overdue book (eep!) and I’m not sure they’ll lend me anything at this point! The winter weather makes going out of my way to go to the library feel extra exhausting, but I put it in my purse this morning and am determined to return it today! Anyway, all this to say my library use is very quiet right now but will probably expand a lot in a couple months when I’ve chipped away at the books in my apartment, haha.


    1. Oh nooo! Good that you still have the book, though — hopefully that will make your fines lower (or is your branch a fine-free location?). I swore a few months ago that I’d stop borrowing books until I worked on books I own, and then I got the job, so you can see how well that resolution is working out for me 😂

      1. Luckily they cap the fines at $5, so that’s all I’ll have to pay! I tried to do it at the counter, but they don’t take cards there and I didn’t have cash so she told me not to worry about it. She said it doesn’t really matter if it’s under $10 and that I could just pay next time 😂
