Physical Review Copies:

  • Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things — Jacqueline Firkins [YA romance]
    • A love triangle between a girl and her childhood love and the local “bad boy”. Do you ever request an ARC and then wonder why you requested it, because it’s so far out of your norm? That’s happening to me with this one. ? But who knows, maybe I’ll be surprised and have a lot of fun with it!
  • Looking Glass — Christina Henry [adult horror]
    • Novellas set in the Alice world! This comes out in April, which gives me time to finally finish the series and do a series review. I can’t wait!

Digital Review Copies:

  • Girl Gone Viral — Alisha Rai [adult romance]
    • While I didn’t totally love the first book in this series, The Right Swipe, I think this one sounds better plot-wise & I’m hoping I enjoy the characters more!

Kindle Purchases/Freebies:

  • Nothing this week!

Physical Purchases & Gifts:

  • Nothing this week!

Library & Kindle Unlimited Borrows:

  • Man-Eaters, Vol. 1 — Chelsea Cain [adult horror graphic novel]
    • A feminist horror graphic novel set in a world where young girls entering puberty being flesh-eating wild cats. I’ve seen this around a lot lately and I’m VERY intrigued!
  • Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom — Booki Vivat [MG contemporary]
    • This was so cute! It’s an illustrated book about a middle school girl who feels unappreciated and unliked, and it features super fun semi-chibi art and some cute humor.
  • The Wicked + The Divine, Book 1 — Kieron Gillen [adult fantasy graphic novel]
    • I read the first 2 volumes of this series and couldn’t get into it much, but my tastes have changed a little in the last couple of years, so I’ll try it again and see if I have better luck because I really love the premise of the series overall!
  • Clive Barker’s Hellraiser Omnibus, Vol. 1 — Clive Barker [adult horror graphic novel]
    • Who doesn’t love a little Hellraiser lore?

  • The Bloody Best of Lenore — Roman Dirge [adult horror graphic novel]
    • I was (and forever am) a huge Invader ZIM fan and I always remember reading about Jhonen and Roman being best friends and having similar senses of humor, so I grabbed this from Hoopla. I’m almost done with it right now and it is so fucked up but hilarious.
  • Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? — Caitlin Doughty [adult nonfiction]
    • This is SO FUN. It’s a book in which a mortician (Caitlin) replies to children’s questions about death, and it’s just really fascinating.
  • Frankenstein — Junji Ito [adult horror manga]
    • This is, from my understanding, partially a Frankenstein adaptation and partially Junji Ito’s original storyline in short stories. I was so bummed by not being able to finish No Longer Human last month that it’s had me craving a new Junji Ito read, and I was able to borrow this one from a neighboring library.
  • The Sun and Her Flowers — Rupi Kaur [adult poetry]
    • I liked Milk & Honey a few years back, and this not only fits a required reading assignment for my class next week, but it also fits a TBR challenge in a Goodreads group I’m in.

More about Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

      1. I’ve been meaning to read/finish the series for AGES! I read the first 1/2 of book 1 a couple of years ago and accidentally misplaced it for a while, and then didn’t find it for several months lol. They emailed me and offered me Looking Glass and I normally NEVER take a book that requires me to read 1 or more books *before* it in a series, but I love her writing so much I felt like it was no real risk ? If you haven’t already, I hope you get a copy ASAP!!

    1. oooh I’ve been in the “what where you thinking requesting that” boat, but I usually blame alternate-Ruby for that lol. Jokes aside, I hope you really enjoy the book. I didn’t know about Looking Glass, but now I’m excited. Thank you for pointing it out. Have a great weekend and happy reading.

    1. Hearts, strings and other breakable things was already on my virtually wanna read, but i’ve now added Girl Gone Viral too !

      I actually bought some books lately ? I picked Solitaire translated in french aswell as Notes on a Nervous Planet.

    1. I definitely hope Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things surprises you! And I hope you enjoy The Sun and Her Flowers! Rupi Kaur’s poetry is beautiful and I love it so so so much.

Say hello! ♥
