Our Library Bag: June 2021

 This post contains affiliate links. 


June means that it is officially summer reading season! Our library bag is bursting with adventures, mysteries, gorgeous illustrations, and just all around goodness. 

I know that I haven't shared an Our Library Bag since October 2020, but never fear, we've been keeping our wonderful librarians busy.  My Goodreads log has me at 26 books for the year.  My TBR pile has several books from Modern Mrs. Darcy's Summer Reading List, Sarah's Favorites, and various other sources.  I even have a book for Library Book Club!  I was thrilled to receive the email stating that Book Club and the Friends of the Library Book Sale will be back in July!



The Silent Patient by by Alex Michaelides
Here's the brief description from Amazon: "The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman’s act of violence against her husband—and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive."   This book was, and still is, making quite a stir in a couple of bookish Facebook groups that I'm in and I decided to join the masses and read it.  It was really enthralling.  I was immediately drawn into the story.  

Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline 
From Amazon, "Lovingly nostalgic and wildly original as only Ernest Cline could conceive it, Ready Player Two takes us on another imaginative, fun, action-packed adventure through his beloved virtual universe, and jolts us thrillingly into the future once again."  This was a fun read, but hugely problematic plot-wise and pandering a bit too much to the original audience.  


My current read is the third book of the 100 Cupboards series, The Chestnut King. I shared a picture over on Instagram


We are finishing up Read Aloud Revival's May Picture Book List.  (I think there are some fellow RAR enthusiasts in my library system, because there are more and more holds on the books on these lists!)  Some of our current favorites include: A Nest Is NoisyThe Tiny Seed, and Ojiichan’s Gift.




What is on your summer reading list?

  1. You have been busy reading so far this year. I'm always looking for new books by my favourite authors. Right now I'm reading one by a Canadian author and the book is set in Newfoundland.
