Library Lovelies and Riveting Reservations #1

"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library"
Welcome to my new segment readers,

During this post I will show you my library lovelies  - books that I've borrowed from one of the local libraries - and riveting reservations - books that weren't available at the library I go to so I've pestered for them to be sent to my library so I can read them.Also it's basically just an excuse to write about my adoration of libraries.

I went quite psycho Today with the amount I checked out because I'm off school next week therefore I'll have more devouring time. It's only my second time visiting this particular library (I'm a member of 3 - My District library, Nearby District Library and my School Library) the Nearby District library so I have plenty of options to choose from.

The previous time I visited it I didn't notice that it had a self-service machine. Today was the first time I'd ever encountered them - it certainly saves my books from not being scanned properly by ditsy librarians but has me worried about my hopeful career as a librarian.

Riveting Reservations
This section will be complied in to three categories - Arrived (books I reserved but are now ready to collect) , In Transit (when they've sent the book to my library but it hasn't arrived yet) and Reserved (when they've not done anything regarding my reservation).

Library Lovelies

Animal Academy #1 by Hakobune Hakusho
This library has a colossal Manga section (6 shelves full) therefore I'll be reading a lot more from this genre now.
I picked this one up before some of the others because of it's plot - a normal girl enrols in a school for shape-shifters.
The reason I love these books is that they're so adorable,pretty and quick reads.

Another Manga but this time a romance centring around a girl with the ability to galvanise people to love her.

Wrong Number by Chloe Rayban
The author of this book wrote  a series that I own called the Justine Duval/Wild Child series which I plan to read in June.
Therefore when I noticed this 70 page quick read I thought I'd see if I enjoyed her writing style.
It sounds so sweet - it's about a girl who receives a call from boy who has dialled a wrong number and starts falling in love with him.
The catastrophic history of you and me by Jess Rothenberg
I've been extremely excited for this book since it was released last autumn.
Who wouldn't adore a book with a pretty cover, creative title and a plot line to die for ?

Undone by Cat Clarke
Similarly to the previous book listed, I've been awaiting the opportunity to read this novel.
The plot is simple yet intriguing - an investigation of her best friends death - but the length (500 pages) supplies that there's depth to the story.

The Celebutantes #1 - On the avenue by Antonio Pagliarulo
A Goodreads reviewer described this as Nancy Drew (which I love) + Gossip Girl (which I loved the t.v show of and plan to finally read the book series of in September) + Pretty Little Liars (which words can not express how much I love) so if that's true this maybe the best book ever !
The plot line sounds amazing and I've never read a book about triplets before.

Prophecy of the sisters by Michelle Zink
A horror-themed book about twins sound like something utterly unmissable and was recommended to me on Goodreads.
