Book Haul: Contemporary Stash from the Library

I apologize that the blog has been neglected the past few days, real life has been getting in the way of things. I know that my most recent post was also about a library stash but I just can’t help myself from borrowing books even if I have to return them unread. Sunday library visits are becoming a weekly habit, there’s something about going to the library that I find therapeutic. The same thing happens when I visit a bookstore but since I don’t end up buying anything because books are expensive here, I’d rather go to the library. Here’s my stash for this week, contemporary novels which should be pretty easy to get into:

I’m already reading The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater on my Kindle but I couldn’t resist when I saw it in the library yesterday:

I found a beautiful quote from The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen to explain why I like having books around me even if I don’t get to read all of them:

“Books can be possessive, can’t they? You’re walking around in a bookstore and a certain one will jump out at you, like it had moved there on its own, just to get your attention. Sometimes what’s inside will change your life, but sometimes you don’t even have to read it. Sometimes it’s a comfort just to have a book around. Many of these books haven’t even had their spines cracked. ‘Why do you buy books you don’t even read?’ our daughter asks us. That’s like asking someone who lives alone why they bought a cat. For company, of course.”

What about you, have you gotten any books lately to keep you company?
