Wrap Ups and Hauls

Library Haul

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having an amazing day and staying safe. So after 6 months of living in the US, I finally got myself a library card. I’m really excited about this as it’s been way too long since I last stepped foot in a library. I went yesterday and spent a good hour or more just browsing and can’t believe how big this library is compared to the one back home and I’m hoping it might help me to start reading more than I have been.

Anyway I ended up borrowing 4 books and a DVD.

The first books I borrowed were two graphic novels Sleepless Volumes 1&2 by Sarah Vaughn. The artwork in these novels is stunning and I can’t wait to read them.

Next I picked up Nothing But Blackened Teeth by Cassandra Khaw and has been on my radar since it’s release last year and feels like the perfect book to end the dark winter season on.

A gorgeously creepy haunted house tale, steeped in Japanese folklore and full of devastating twists. A Heian-era mansion stands abandoned, it’s foundations resting on the bones of a bride and it’s walls packed with the remains of the girls sacrificed to keep her company. It’s the perfect wedding venue for a group of thrill-seeking friends. But a night of food, drinks, and games quickly spirals into a nightmare. For lurking in the shadows is the ghost bride with a black smile and hungry heart. And she gets lonely down their in the dirt.

The last book I picked up was Act Your Age Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert. This is the last book in the Brown Sisters Trilogy and I loved the previous books so really looking forward to giving this one a shot.

Eve Brown the flightiest Brown sister crashes into the life of an uptight B&B owner and has him falling hard – literally. Eve Brown is a certified hot mess. No matter how hard she strives to do right, her her life always goes horribly wrong – so she’s given up trying. But when her personal brand of chaos ruins an expensive wedding (someone had to liberate those poor doves), her parents draw the line. It’s time for Eve to grow up and prove herself – even though she’s not entirely sure how. Jacob Wayne is in control. Always. The bed and breakfast owner’s on a mission to dominate the hospitality industry – and he expects nothing less than perfection. So when a purple haired tornado of a woman turns up out of the blue to interview for his open chief position, he tells her the brutal truth: not a chance in hell. Then she hits him with her car – supposedly by accident. Yeah, right. Now his arm is broken, his B&B is understaffed, and the dangerously unpredictable Eve is fluttering around, trying to help. Before long, she’s infiltrated his work, his kitchen – and his spare bedroom. Jacob hates everything about it. Or rather, he should. Sunny, chaotic Eve is his natural-born nemesis, but the longer these two enemies spend in close quarters, the more their animosity turns into something else. Like Eve, the heat between them is impossible to ignore – and it’s melting Jacob’s frosty exterior.


Have you read any of the above?? If so, what were your thoughts?? Also do you often use your local library??

  1. Looks like a nice and varied collection!
    The Nothing But Blackened Teeth book cover looks positively creepy lol.
    I wanted to point out a typo “And she gets lonely down their in the dirt.”
    “Their” should be “there”.

    I haven’t read any of these and I don’t read horror. Would you recommend the graphics novel as a non-horror story?

    I should use my library more often. I am raising my daughter trilingual in English, French and Mandrin and my big beautiful local library has several hundred books in all three languages, with a especially large collection of French books. It’s one of the perks of living in Quebec, Canada.

    Now one day when she is older I’ll have time to read more for my own leisure!

    1. Thanksgiving for point that out I really need to get better at proofreading my posts before I publish them 🤦‍♀️
      The graphic novels are definitely more fantasy than horror.
      That library sounds amazing 💜
