    The votes are in and we have our next batch of books for 2018! Woo-hoo! :) Like I've been doing the last couple of times, I am posting the next few months (May-August) all at once, so we can all get these books on hold at our libraries in time. :) The book we will be reading for July 2018 is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. Please label spoilers or even type them in white like I just did right here (highlight that blank space) so that a person has to highlight it to read it.

    That is just not cool. Wow! I don't even think we have that many people in my town that USE our online library. I sure hope they have a bunch of copies! I'm up to #42 with 6 copies! That's still about 14 weeks of waiting, but I think I'll get it by July at least! Good luck with your wait!

    My reading isn't consistent lately, but I really want to read this one. I put a hold on the book at my local library, 39 copies and I'm 154 of 154 in line...that was crazy to me, so I did a quick Google search and found a seller on ebay selling unused copies for $1.39 with FREE shipping!

    @djp332 and @Karen in case you'd like to just order the book here is the link.

    **edit** it's an ebook LOL!! Guess I should have read the description a bit better...doh!

    Funny thing is that this week I got 3 notices of books that I've reserved! The first one that I already started is 640 pages. I'll never read that in 3 weeks. A friend told me that if I turn off the wi-fi the library can't end my loan.

    I just went to my library website and put holds on Britt-Marie, Bernadette, and Before We Were Yours. I'm #3 for the first two, but for Before... the paper and ebooks had about 60 people ahead of me and the audiobook, which I chose, has 15 people ahead of me! Wow! It must be great!

    Finished it this week and really liked it so much more than I was expecting. It's in my top 10 faves now for this year. That's what I love about our reading group, there are so many books recommended that I probably never would have read had it not been suggested here. So, for me, this book was another winner!

    I read this in one day. I couldn't stop reading! Loved it. I understand now why the wait lists are so long.

    All done! I feel so so sad about Gabion. I can't wait to discuss this one, I really liked it.
