Library-A-Thon TBR

A TBR Brought to you for the
Hello everyone! I know it has been a while since my last post! Life has been incredibly busy! As a teacher the end of the school year is FAST approaching and there are so many things to do and so little time! I have been reading A LOT better in the month of May, let me tell you though! A lot better. I have actually been reaching a little bit outside of my comfort zone lately as well, which I am proud of. I needed a short reprieve from Cozies for a little bit and now I am ready to tackle my Cozy TBR Pile!

As stated above this is my short TBR for the Library-A-Thon that will be held June 3rd 2018 thru June 9th 2018. I was tagged to be apart of this Readathon by my good friend Jashana , if you are NOT following her I suggest you get to it! She is hilarious, blunt, and stick you right with what she is thinking! She is a breath of fresh air! The Creator Saajid and Co-Hosts are Kelly and Kathy. Go follow their channels and without further ado, let’s get into this TBR!


There are 6 Challenges to this Library-A-Thon:

1. Borrow and read a book set in a country that you’ve never read a book set in before.

2. Borrow and read a book that you’ve never heard of before.

3. Borrow and read a book that’s out of your comfort zone (genre, age group, themes, etc.)

4. Borrow and read a book that you’ve been meaning to read, but haven’t gotten around to.

5. Borrow and read a book recommended by a librarian.

6. Borrow and read a bookish book (for instance, a book about books, a book with ‘book’ in the title or a book with a book on the cover).


I have three books that I am really excited to read! What’s awesome is that I went onto Hoopla, Overdrive, and My Library’s App to find all of these books and they were all suggested or they popped up to be read!

For the challenges of Borrow and read a book set in a country that you’ve never read a book set in before and a book outside of your comfort zone I am choosing Cinder By: Marissa Meyer!

This is a retelling of Cinderella I believe. I have seen this series roaming around Booktube over the past year, but I haven’t read or picked it up until now. I am going to try and read it as an Audiobook from Hoopla.

I don’t normally read Young Adult fiction so it is kind of outside of my comfort zone, but I am still excited and intrigued by the idea of this series.

Synopsis below:
CINDER, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She’s reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen – and a dangerous temptation.

Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth’s future.

5. Borrow and read a book recommended by a librarian.

6. Borrow and read a bookish book (for instance, a book about books, a book with ‘book’ in the title or a book with a book on the cover).

I have chosen “The Library at the Edge of the World” By: Felicity Hayes-McCoy! This book seemed to fit these two challenges PERFECTLY! Seriously, I couldn’t have planned it better!

Synopsis Below:
As she drives her mobile library van between villages of Ireland’s West Coast, Hanna Casey tries not to think about a lot of things. Like the sophisticated lifestyle she abandoned after finding her English barrister husband in bed with another woman. Or that she’s back in Lissbeg, the rural Irish town she walked away from in her teens, living in the back bedroom of her overbearing mother’s retirement bungalow. Or, worse yet, her nagging fear that, as the local librarian and a prominent figure in the community, her failed marriage and ignominious return have made her a focus of gossip.

With her teenage daughter, Jazz, off traveling the world and her relationship with her own mother growing increasingly tense, Hanna is determined to reclaim her independence by restoring a derelict cottage left to her by her great-aunt. But when the threatened closure of the Lissbeg Library puts her personal plans in jeopardy, Hanna finds herself leading a battle to restore the heart and soul of the Finfarran Peninsula’s fragmented community. And she’s about to discover that the neighbors she’d always kept at a distance have come to mean more to her than she ever could have imagined.

This book covers two challenges that seem to negate each other, but I promise that I makes sense, at least…to me it does!

Challenges 2 and 4
2. Borrow and read a book that you’ve never heard of before.

4. Borrow and read a book that you’ve been meaning to read, but haven’t gotten around to.

As you all know I love Agatha Christie! The Mother of Cozy Mysteries! I have really been meaning to read more of her work (hence challenge 4). I am so happy that the library had a short story that I have never heard of before. I have heard about Tommy & Tuppence, but I didn’t know anything about their storyline or anything about the characters (hence challenge 2)!

Synopsis below:

Captain Sessle is found stabbed through the heart with a hatpin, and the only clue is a bit of red wool in his hand. A pretty blonde is charged because she was wearing a bright red wool coat, but the Beresfords aren’t so sure. Was there more behind the killing than a cute girl and some red yarn?


That is the end of my TBR for the Library-A-Thon! I am super excited to get started on these books after the school year is over! I am super excited that this readathon starts RIGHT after school ends!
