River City Reading's Library Checkout: October

I couldn't resist participating in Shannon at River City Reading's Library Checkout, a monthly feature encouraging readers to share their library haul (or hold addiction), for October because I actually finished a couple (or am so very close to) and needed to celebrate! This was, of course, prior to receiving a notification that every hold I have ever made was ready for me to pick up. AHHHH! At least November is looking a little less hectic than October and I can put a dent in it. Wishful thinking.

Read any of these? Which one should I choose next?! :)


  1. I am starting to whittle down my choice for which one I will sneak off with.

  2. In the dark, dark wood is waiting for me at the library, I can't wait to dive in! Since Halloween is coming fast you should read Poe next! (Also, Fates and Furies is pretty great).

    1. I couldn't get the Poe finished before Halloween! Wahhh. I have it saved for next year!! I'm starting Fates and Furies next :)

  3. LOVE that pile. Fates and Furies is so great and you just reminded me that I want to read Romantic Outlaws (I'm going to try to restrain myself and not add it to my overflowing hold list!).

    1. I'm starting Fates and Furies this week! I can't wait. My husband actually read it before (this NEVER happens), so we decided to go to a local book discussion together later this month. And I've had Romantic Outlaws since before it came and shamefully did not read it in time.

  4. I started The Witch of Lime Street. I still need to get used to the writing style, but the story is interesting. I have to go check out what Black Earth is all about...

    1. I'm going to start it pretty soon but I'll keep this in mind. I really don't know much about Black Earth but the premise is pretty interesting.

  5. Seeing several Career of Evil listings. I can't wait for my hold to come in!

  6. Why do they always come in at once? I am jealous you have Fates & Furies - my hold list will take forever I think.

    Romantic Outlaws is SO good!

    1. I know!!! It kills me because it's always when I'm slammed with my photography work and I can't read any of them! *sobs*
