I didn't put a TBR in my last wrap up post, so today I'm going to share with you the books that I'm waiting for from my library. I've put all these books on hold, and now I am in the queue for them. I'm actually really excited about all these books, so that's good too!
1. Wonder by R.J. Palacio
2. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
3. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
4. Unwind by Neal Shusterman
5. Wildlife by Fiona Wood
6. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
7. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I've had Wonder on hold for at least two months now, which is unusual for my library but as long as I get it eventually, I'll be okay. Both The Wrath and the Dawn and An Ember in the Ashes hadn't been acquired by my library when they were released, which was killing me, especially with all the hype they were receiving (and still are receiving). But I recently decided to see if they were listed again, and this time I was in luck! The library still doesn't have them, but they are in the process of getting them and I was able to put them on hold. It's the same case with Unwind and Aristotle and Dante - the library doesn't have copies yet. There's been a lot of noise about Uprooted lately so I decided to put that on hold too. I put Wildlife on hold on a whim, after seeing this post and knowing I don't read enough Australian YA - though I've been making an effort this year! I'm also pretty sure that I saw Fiona Wood give a talk at a festival in Melbourne a couple years ago.
I was hoping these books would come in a staggered fashion so that I'd have enough time to read them all, but I've just checked and three of them have become available today! Wonder, Wildlife and Unwind - I'm coming for you!
Do you place holds on books at your library? Can you? And of course, what's on your immediate TBR?
