What is Fill your library?
It’s when I share with you my library’s decision on the books I recently requested. They are pretty good at getting popular new releases, but they have a few blind spots I want to help them with.
For this batch of requests I went for variety: new releases and back list titles, self published and big publishing house, but most of them are diverse in some way
Royally Screwed by Emma Chase
P.S. I Miss You by Jen Petro-Roy
I’m surprised and disappointed that they didn’t accept this one. It’s queer middle grade aka the type of books they should be buying by the dozen.
All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfoth
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai
Cork Dork by Bianca Bosker
Descendent of the Crane by Joan He
With new releases it’s hard to guess which titles are on their radar and which ones I need to request. I wish their website had a list of all the books they preordered, it would make this much much simpler.
Radiance by Grace Draven
Marriage of Unconvenience by Chelsea M. Cameron
Most of the backlist books I plan on requesting have less than 5 000 ratings on Goodreads so they probably wouldn’t get bought otherwise. I hope that by requesting these books more people read them and review them, but I have no idea of the impact this can realistically have.
Which part of your online bookish presence do you think has the greatest impact on other readers?
