I am choosing The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Jan 14, 1:15am Top

I usually use this to pick Orange prize winners by then name (either first or surname). Last year I ordered Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel from the library in about April and it didn't arrive until November. So I'm going to read that one and get it back to the library quicker than it arrived!

>9 Helenliz: Wow! That is a loooong library wait!

Jan 14, 7:28am Top

I'm planning on reading The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks and The Vengeance of Mothers by Jim Fergus.

Currently planning on The Tomb by F. P. Wilson and Dark Age by Pierce Brown

Right now I'm planning to read The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera and I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life by Anne Bogel.
