It’s no secret that I am an avid library patron. Having read 120+ books a year (for the past three years at least), it just would not be financially feasible (aka possible) for me to buy every single book that I read. I’ve been super fortunate throughout my blogging ‘career’ – sidenote that February/March is my five year anniversary of book blogging?!? – to receive so many books for review from publishers and I tend to buy more books than my past self would, but regardless, at least half, if not more, of my reading comes from the library. Out of the 32 books that I’ve read at the time of reading this post in 2022, 21 have been borrowed from the library. I’m super fortunate that I have two local branches of my county library system close to my home AND that even if one of the branches doesn’t have a specific book that I’m looking for, I can put it on hold from another branch.
For today’s post, I’m going to be sharing the books I currently have on hold from the library. The majority, if not all, are either new releases or upcoming books. I try to put anticipated books on hold as early as possible so I can be one of the first to have it when it comes in – I have noticed that likely due to supply chain demands that new releases can take weeks past their release date to come into the library system. And knowing my luck, all of these books will come in at the same time, but at least I’ll be busy reading!
Do you use the library? Have you read any books that I’ve listed here? Any on your TBR? Share in the comments!
