Hello fellow readers!
I love books. By now, this shouldn’t be much of a surprise. But another thing is that I’m a student. And who says student also says 1) broke; and 2) doesn’t have much room to keep books. Also, for me, there’s the eventuality of 3) might have to take all of these books back home someday (boy, I’m not looking forward to that).
The solution to these problems? A simple word: library. You might have noticed with my last post that I adore libraries, and it would be a space I’d like to work in. For now, though, I just spend a lot of time there (they have AC, which, right now, is a godsend), studying, reading, writing or just people-watching. And, of course, I borrow books! Because these books are free. So, in honour of the library that became sort of my home-away-from-home, here is a little compilation of the books that I’m currently burrowing. Rest assured that, though I tend to borrow a lot of books at the time, I’m always on time to give them back 😉
Any of these you’ve read? Any that you’re interested in? Let me know!
I don’t know about you, but I’m always surprised by how good and new these books look! I’m more used to library books that look well-read and well-loved, this is a nice change (though I don’t have anything against more used books, of course). I’ll include a short summary and cover picture of all books – unless otherwise mentioned, these come from Goodreads.

“Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together. Why she disappears some nights. Why she won’t let herself remember what happened that long-ago night on the boardwalk. Why she fell apart so completely.
Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love—love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself—can save you after all.”
