What’s On My Library List is an original feature I started to highlight some of my most anticipated reads I have on hold through my local library that I am eagerly waiting for!
Hello Readers! Today I’m launching a fun, quick little feature where I round up the books I have on my library holds list (mainly through Overdrive, perhaps a physical copy or two occasionally) to showcase what books I am really excited to add my to TBR in the near future! With the end of the year approaching, I am definitely prepared for some concentrated reading time around the holidays and tend to get through a good chunk of library books this time of year!
The Woman in the Window | Hold Position: #35 on 23 copies
My hold position on this one has honestly vastly improved since I requested it about 3 weeks ago. I don’t read adult thrillers too often (I was super disappointed by the last one I tried), however I joined my office’s book club and this is what they’ll be reading for their December meeting, so I’m excited to step a bit out of my comfort zone and meet some new people through a book club (the first one I’ve ever been a part of)!
Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6) | Holds Position: #6 on 3 copies
I know, I know, I should really probably BUY this one so I’m not awkwardly missing one of the books from the series, but IDK, I just can’t bring myself to make the commitment. I am SO NOT a Chaol fan and this book is why I’m so behind on the series (because I’ve been procrastinating reading it). But I’m in the middle of a TOG reread as we speak so I can finally read KOA so my plan is to get through this one before the year ends. I’ve heard a few folks say they really ended up enjoying it despite not liking Chaol so FINGERS CROSSED I fall into this category.
Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating | Holds Position: #13 on 3 copies
It’s been several months since I read a new book that merited a 5 star review, however considering how much I loved Roomies, I’m hoping that this latest story from Christina Lauren will do the trick! I also adore how it has a corresponding cover to Roomies as well even though it’s not a sequel!
The Dinner List | Holds Position: #24 on 4 copies
Not ashamed to say I think this made its way onto my TBR solely because I saw it featured on Lauren’s blog (she’s basically my personal librarian lol).
Blanca & Roja | Holds Position: #3 on 1 copy
I’ve only read one book by Anna-Marie McLemore, and it was strange and beautiful and featured Latinx characters, and I’m really hoping for more of all three from this one. Plus it’s been a while since I read a retelling and Snow White + Rose Red + Swan Lake seems like an amazing combo!
Wildcard (Warcross #2) | Holds Position: #6 on 4 copies
While I was not the biggest fan of Warcross (by the end I was reading it for the LOLs to be honest) I’ll admit I am intrigued enough to pick up the sequel, even if for the sole purposes of laughing at its absurdity. I’m bummed by this cover though- I loved the colorful cover of Warcross and had hoped they would continue the trend.
