It’s my habit that as I read various reviews in print and on-line magazines and blogs to check if the library has books I think I’d like to read. They often do and I put things on hold. Usually there’s a waiting list, sometimes a long one. Things will then pop up whenever it’s my turn. And sometimes, “my turn” seems to happen all at once. Here are the books that I’m at or near the top of the list:
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, Choice of Weapons : three 007 novels by Raymond Benson, Enter Pale Death by Barbara Cleverly and Five by Ursula Archer [translation, J. L. Searle].
Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear, The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove and Murder at the Brightwell by Ashley Weaver
The Martian by Andy Weir, Very best of Kate Elliott by Kate Elliot, and The Advent of Murder by Martha Ockley
I may or may not be able to read them all in the three weeks the library allows, and most aren’t renewable, so I’ll have to choose. Darn.
