Releases of the month recap: January. Books you need to keep an eye on!

Dearest booklovers, get your calendars and TBR lists out and bring a red pen with you because you need to write these new releases down.
Being a bookworm has many perks, however, it can get a tiny bit overwhelming.  Okay, sometimes more than just a tiny bit. You know the drill and keeping TBRs up to date is a task only for the brave, (or maybe only for those extremely organized). The Aus. Library wants to give you a hand and make things easier for you, which is why we are inaugurating a new section.

*drum roll*

Book Releases of the month!

Every month we will be posting a list of new releases: some of them will be hyped and well known, others you have probably forgotten and perhaps, even some books you didn’t know about. Either way, win-win situation. Are you with us? Yes? Let’s get to it.

Top 5 Books I Want To Read This Autumn

Top 5 Books I Want To Read This Autumn

Novel Paradise

Hi everyone! I recently published a post about my 10 most anticipated autumn releases and whilst this post is sort of similar, it’s still different. My most anticipated post was focused solely on books releasing in autumn of 2017, however this post will be focused on the top 5 books I want to read this autumn. This means not all of the book on this list will necessarily be released in autumn of 2017, they’re just books I’m hoping to get to in the next couple of months.

I think I’ll be posting these types of posts at the start of each new season, and then at the end of each season I’ll do a wrap-up of the fave books I read over the season. Hopefully that will be something you all like and something I can keep up to date with!

I’ve been going really well with my reading…

History is All You Left Me Review

Vigilante Reads

History is All You Left Me by Adam Silver is the second book chosen for The Rainbow Library.A landslide in the voting. A lot of members were excited about the book release.I’m really glad it was chosen as well. I was a big fan of More Happy Than Not and had the History Is All You Left Me book pre-ordered. I was going to wait a bit longer to dive into but I’m glad this group gave me the push to do it now.Apologizing now if this review gets too scattered. I took lots of notes.

This story intrigued me right away with the setup. You jump into the story and realize that the chapters will alternate between the present and the past.History and Today. We have a main character that is flawed in some ways too. I’m  talking about the way he handles a lot of the relationships in…

Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee Review

Vigilante Reads

I enjoyed the story for sure. I had a hard time not questioning the logistics of the world but questions aside it is really interesting. A solar flare gave a lot of people powers. Meta Humans galore. They are classed at different levels with the higher level becoming superheroes. It is really interesting but felt like I needed more detail still.

I love the representation in the story. I don’t read many books with bisexual main characters in this kind of genre. Jess is also an Asian protagonist. I’m all about superhero stories with QPOC characters. It was great to see how her family’s background affected their life in different ways.I also like the way the main relationship went overall. It was a cute pairing. Felt a bit too fluffy for the story at times but it was nice.

There was too hinting sometimes. I figured out a lot of…

Meet Eri! Our Latest Addition to The Aus. Library.

Hello, I’m Eri and I’m super honored to join The Aus. Library as a co-blogger. There are a lot of exciting things to come on this blog and I can’t wait to be a part of them and the awesome team that runs it!

I was born and raised on the sunny west coast of the US, and am currently braving out the seasons in the midwest, where I attend college. I’m a newly minted English Lit major, and I’m hopefully heading towards a career in publishing, though it feels very much like a pipe dream at the moment. I’m fluent in English and Japanese, though I’m also currently studying German and a bit of Spanish, as I find languages are some of the most interesting subjects to study.

Unfortunately, I suck at taking pictures and
this is my most recent selfie, lol.

I care about three things quite passionately in life and those are books, sleep, and food. I adore dessert and it’s possibly my favorite part of a meal. I also have a travel wish list of places I want to visit for their food. That says a lot about how much I care about food.

I’ve been blogging on and off since mid-2015 on my own blog, Airy Reads, but I’ve been reviewing on Goodreads for much longer, and have been inhaling books from a very young age.

I usually gravitate towards two types of books, which are YA targeted books and Romance, particularly contemporary and regency. I love twisty plots and morally intriguing characters, but am always weak for a good ship. I pretty much read any sub-genre within YA, although I get really excited over thriller mystery books and retellings. I specialize in binge reading and you can often find me furiously finishing books, mostly when I’m supposed to be doing homework.

I don’t really enjoy singling out a favorite book/series, but I am devoted to the Gallagher Girls series, which hold a special place in my heart, because well, a spy school for girls is the ultimate dream and I live for the girl power and wonderful relationships that make up that series.

I spend a lot of time on Tumblr making edits for my favorite books, such as the ones below, and I also like to take bookstagram pictures as well, which is such a fun and creative way to share my love for books.

I also have a fun side project called Asian YA, which is dedicated to promoting books that feature Asian characters and/or Asian authors. It’s still in the beginning stages, but learning about books that showcase how Asia is such a diverse and rich region is something I’m very excited about.

Besides the above places, you can also find me on Twitter and I love to fangirl/chat with people about bookish things in general.

Thanks for reading, and I’m so excited to co blog with the rest of the lovely Aus Squad, Meleika, Bayram, Regi, Sara, and Sophie!

Cheers!
