Like those signs that say “Thimk”

Someday I’m going to make more of an effort to organize my holds, but once again, a bunch of my most anticipated holds came up at once, so here’s another round of “which one will be returned unread?” ( Jessica)

Our current contestants.

Last Things– I realized recently that even though I say I don’t like memoirs, I almost always love them in graphic format. This is a genre that I love and that tends to be quick, and Lucy loves this author, so I told her I’d read it first to see if it’s ok for her to read. I will definitely get to this one fast.

Saints for All Occasions– J. Courtney Sullivan always writes exactly the kind of stuff I want to read. I’m halfway through this already and I love it. She can do no wrong in my eyes.

The Wanderers– I saw this described as “What if The Martian didn’t kind of suck?” I’m in.

How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids– I think I’ll make time for this one. No further comment.

New Boy– I guess I put all the Hogarth Shakespeare titles on my list at some point. I’m not super drawn to this, 50/50 shot of reading it.

Woman No. 17– Lots and lots of buzz about this in my best reader circles. I’m excited to read this one.

No One Can Pronounce My Name– I’ve had this out for a while and time is running out. I don’t know why I’ve been avoiding it, seems like something I will love. It’s next or never for this one.

Broken River– Sometimes I love this author, and sometimes I’m lukewarm on him. I will probably make time for this but it’s not high priority.

Almost Missed You– This was the “winner” the last time I played this game! Back again, down but not out. I would feel sorry for it if I returned it unread a second time, but no promises.

The Light We Lost– It’s finally summer, and this is billed as “Me Before You meets One Day,” and even though I didn’t especially love either of those books, it sounds like exactly what I want to be reading at the beach.

That’s what’s on tap, along with about a zillion other things. I’m also really excited that Jennifer Egan finally has a book coming out, and I am first in line on the holds. That’s a serious accomplishment in the life of a library fanatic!
