Waiting On Wednesday

Breaking the Spine hosts this meme. Here are the books i'm waiting for! While they are not all brand new or unreleased, these books are the ones that i have on my hold list at the library.



  • Artemis Fowl #7: The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer- I've liked the previous books and really love how Artemis has grown over the course of the series, i'm 10 of 15
  • Mr. Peanut by Adam Ross- written by a local author, which is why i'm branching out to a modern murder mystery, I'm 9 of 114
  • Hardboiled Hollywood: The True Crime Stories that Inspired the Great Noir Films by Max Decharne- sounded cool. i'm next!
  • Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonsen- I added this onto my list recently, i feel like another blogger recommended it, i'm 17 of 27
  • The Fall: Book Two of the Strain Trilogy by Guillermo del Toro- I read the first book last year when it came out. while i'm just 3 of 3, this one isn't released yet.
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins- ok, yeah, i'm in on this. but i'm 104 of 107.
  • Nomad by Ayan Hiirsi Ali- i read her previous memoir and i can't exactly say i liked it because it's a rough, shocking book. I guess i would say i appreciated reading about a life and experiences so radically different from my own, i'm 4 of 7
  • The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell- I enjoyed Black Swan Green and i think i added this book in from another recommendation, i'm 7 of 25.
  • This Book is Overdue! by Marilyn Johnson- Rec'd by Andi and possible background info for a possible grad school application, 2 of 8
  • Twelve by Twelve: A One-Room Cabin Off the Grid and Beyond the American Dream by William Powers- don't know where i saw this book. i'm first but the library doesn't have it yet.

ok, that's it. The library will only let me request 10 books at a time. i could list another few that i've got wishlisted on amazon but that would just get boring! Should i mention that i've already checked out 9 books? EEK! ok, off to read!
