River City Reading's Library Checkout: January 2016

January 30, 2016

I honestly thought I wasn't going to have two cents to throw in this pot, but what better way to close out the month than with a massive library haul?! All but one of my reads in January qualified for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks, so I think some borrowed goodies are well-deserved.

Library Books Read

Nimona, by Noelle Stevenson — My heart grew three sizes that day. If you haven't read it already, I really don't know what you're waiting for.

I am so excited for all the nonfiction I got today! Much of it came recommended by Cass, who happens to be a very smart cookie.
