I haven’t done a post about my holds list in awhile. My last one was April 2015. Geez! I love reading other blog posts about what people are excited to read so here’s my current hold list.
Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller. This was a Book of the Month Club choice in December. I wasn’t a member yet but it sounded interesting so I put it on hold. Other people must be thinking the same thing because I’ve had it on hold for awhile.
The Lotterys Plus One by Emma Donoghue. I do remember how I heard about this one. Emma Donoghue is the author of Room, the book that spawned the Oscar winning movie (my review). This is her first children’s book and I’m very excited to read it.
4321 by Paul Auster. This isn’t technically on my holds list, I have it checked out right now. But it is soooo long (880 pages!) that I’m going to have to return it before I finish and subsequently put it on hold again.
Six Four by Hideo Yokoyama. I typically hate scary books. However, someone compared this book to The Man from Beijing and I loved that book. Scary, yes, but more suspenseful than anything. It’s also a translation, which is one of the requirements on a lot of my reading challenges for 2017. Also not technically on my holds list, I have it checked out right now.
A Separation by Katie Kitamura. Ok so apparently this is just a “books I want to read post” because I have this checked out too. But since I have barely opened the three I have checked out that are on this list I still consider them to be on hold. I’m not sure I’ll actually finish this one. Rebecca from All the Books is who told me about this book, and it sounds like it’s a slow and steady kind of book. Not climactic. But it’s very short, so we’ll see.
