Oh boy. I picked up EIGHT books this week. I was not expecting that many to show up at once!
I have several New Releases (well, new for the library – that means they likely came out in November) and three older books.
In New Releases, I picked up N. K. Jemisin’s How Long ‘Til Black Future Month? (that coverrrrr), and Julie Dao’s sequel to Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix. I also received Empress of All Seasons, Autism in Heels, and Love Á La Mode (because I’m a sucker for romance mixed with food).
In older books, I checked out When Dimple Met Rishi (finally!), The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily, and River of Teeth, which I’ve been meaning to get around to. Hippos as an invasive species in the Mississippi? That sounds amazing. It’s also blessedly short, which I was pleased to see when picking up EIGHT BOOKS. River of Teeth will also fill my library’s January Reading Challenge prompt of “Book you’ve been meaning to read.”
It’s a lot to read, but I’m pretty excited about every one of these books!
