My Holds List

I shared my checkout list with you the other day. Confession: the number of books I have on hold dwarfs the number I have checked out.

Here they are:

Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded by John Scalzi - When I was raving about Scalzi on another post I discovered the existence of this collection of essays. The forward is written by Wil Wheaton.

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds - This is another Sequoyah 2017 nominee. The author will be in town on the 7th. I have to work. Sigh.

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld - I have been anxiously awaiting this one for months! It's a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Squee!!

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli - Still on hold for this one. SOMEbody needs to check out her holds already, so I might get it one day.

Winter by Christopher Nicholson - A novelization of the life of Thomas Hardy.

I Woke Up Dead at the Mall by Judy Sheehan - I know that's how I feel at the mall...

Burn Baby Burn by Meg Medina - This is about a young woman in NYC in the summer of 1977. Also knows as the Summer of Sam.

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare - I keep trying to get into her books. Maybe this will be the one.
