I’ve reached the point where I’m counting and trying to figure out when will I make it back to the library, and how do I juggle holds dates, and combine that with an expiring library card = I don’t know if I’ll make another visit before the baby arrives, or just end up returning books and not getting anything new.
I’ve certainly got enough to keep me busy where I wouldn’t NEED any new material. But since when does not needing something new keep me from wanting additional options?
Women Heroes of World War I: 16 Remarkable Resisters, Soldiers, Spies, and Medics by Kathryn Atwood
Loved her similar book on Women Heroes of World War II, and so I expected to love this one. And I did (yup, I’ve already finished it. So good!)
Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage by Molly Wizenberg
I’ve mentioned Wizenberg’s first book, A Homemade Life before as it’s one I adored. I put this one on hold as soon as I found it in the library’s catalog, and my turn has finally arrived. So so so excited for this one.
Fresh from the Farm: A Year of Recipes and Stories by Susie Middleton
It just sounds like my sort of book.
The Good News About Marriage: Debunking Discouraging Myths about Marriage and Divorce by Shaunti Feldhahn
Loved the last book I read by her, and am expecting to enjoy this one too.
The Man Who Couldn’t Eat by Jon Reiner
No idea how this originally came to my attention.
Good Advice from Bad People: Selected Wisdom from Murderers, Stock Swindlers, and Lance Armstrong by Zac Bissonnette
Learned about this one thanks to Laura Vanderkam.
All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood by Jennifer Senior
This has been on my TBR list for ages, and I finally bumped it up to the top of the list. It kind of seems like it might be extra appropriate as I get ready to meet the new baby.
The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Over 100 Vegan Recipes to Glow from the Inside Out by Angela Liddon
Seems like I have to try at least one new cookbook a month. 🙂
The Missing Italian Girl: A Mystery in Paris by Barbara Corrado Pope
My choice for a Paris-themed fiction book for our book club retreat. Because I love historical mysteries. 🙂
The Sandcastle Girls: A Novel by Christ Bohjalian
Some fantastic reviews plus a time period and setting that don’t get a lot of attention equals I have to try it.
