Library Book Haul #1

I usually don't post book hauls, but I've been thinking for a while of doing book haul for books I check out of the library. One of the reasons I want to do this is to promote the use of public libraries. Yes, buying books is great, but when books are pricey or you want to save money, the library is a great option to get you hands on new books.

Another reason I want to do this is to make people aware of the kinds of books that are available at libraries because there both old and new books available there. However, this is just a trial run, let me know what you all think of this post, whether you think it is cheesy, or you want me to do more posts, leave a comment below.

Finally, I got a card from the local library close to my school today and I love it and public libraries are great! Without further ado, here are the books I got from the library today:

1. Da Vinci's Tiger by L.M. Elliott

I don't know a whole lot about this book, except that it has something to do with Leonardo da Vinci, so it is historical fiction. I first heard about this when I first heard about OwlCrate. It looks really good.

2. The Princess Diaries: Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot

This is the latest installment in the Princess Diaries series and picks up about 10 years (I think) and as the title implies there is probably a wedding involved. I am looking forward to seeing what has happened to Mia since she graduated from high school, and these books tend to be quick reads for me.

3. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

I've been wanting to read this book ever since I heard Hailey from Hails Hearts NYC mentioned it and it just sounded interesting. It is about a land that is divided into four kingdoms that each represent one of the four seasons. Years ago the Winter kingdom was taken over by the Spring kingdom and the novel takes place sixteen years after those events.

4. The Painter's Daughter by Julie Klassen
This is another historical fiction novel by one of my favorite Christian authors. It is set during the Regency period and it looks like it deal with art, scandal and many other things.

5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

This is another book I picked up because almost every BookTuber raves about it. It was the first book I picked up at the library and I don't know if I will like it because it seems to be similar to The Mortal Instruments series, but I want to give it a try.

Those are all the books I picked up today at the library and hopefully I will have another library haul post in three weeks (which is when all of these books are due).

Happy Reading,
Janelle L. C.

P.S. If you have any book recommendations let me know and I will check them out! :)
