Okay, so I thought my ‘so many things on the holds list’ chickens had come home to roost last week, but it turns out that those chickens were just coming to get everything ready for the REST of the flock. Part of this is the fault of the Readathon, part of it is just plain old my fault. Either way, I’m slightly overwhelmed by library books right now. Between my card and my husband’s I have about 30 books out! I picked up 15, yes, F.I.F.T.E.E.N. this week. And my husband thought the 8 I had him pick up last week was a lot!
I’m going to break this up more than normal, because I think all 14 covers right next to each other would be too much, and nobody would even know what I got. This first batch is not intended for the Readathon, although I might sneak “Lady MacBeth’s Daughter” into the pile.
The Sisters Who Would Be Queen: Mary, Katherine, and Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Tragedy by Leanda De Lisle
Lady Macbeth’s Daughter by Lisa Klein
The Wild Things by Dave Eggers
This next batch is all young adult lit specifically for the Readathon, although I’d like to still read them if I don’t get to them tomorrow.
Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
In A Perfect World by Laura Kasischke
Next is the Booker Award Winner and a couple of recent book blogger recommendations. None of these will make any appearance during the Readathon.
Another three that are definitely going in the Readathon stacks.
Savvy by Ingrid Law
Confessions of a Slacker Mom by Muffy Mead-Ferro
The Good Good Pig by Sy Montgomery
Lastly, two that could be read for the Readathon but probably won’t be and an audiobook.
