This week's ILLs: May 11

 Stack of the eight books listed in this post.

Stack of the eight books listed in this post.

Since I don't have enough books either at home or in my own library—cough—on a weekly basis, I feel the need to drag home books from OTHER libraries.

Here's what came in for me today:

Haikyu!! Volume One, by Haruichi Furudate: I don't actually remember requesting this? But no one else did, so it's probably for me? Maybe I just wanted to read about volleyball???

Lucky Broken Girl, by Ruth Behar: 1960s-era story about a fifth-grade Cuban immigrant who ends up in a body cast shortly after moving to the United States. Purely based on the cover art, I'm already in love?

The Diamond in the Window, by Jane Langton: I AM FINALLY GOING TO READ THE HALL FAMILY CHRONICLES, DAMMIT.

Brickyard Summer, by Paul B. Janeczko: As of earlier this month, I'm working on reading all of the Lupine Award winners and honor books

Hattie and the Wild Waves, by Barbara Cooney: Another Lupine book.

The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things, by Carolyn Mackler: There's a sequel out later this month, so OBVIOUSLY I want to revisit this one.

Absolute Brightness, by James Lecesne: Working my way through all of the Morris books, too.

Mystery of the Haunted Pool, by Phyllis A. Whitney: Up until very recently, I thought Phyllis Whitney only wrote for the adult market—SO IMAGINE MY DELIGHT WHEN I DISCOVERED THAT SHE ALSO WROTE FOR TEENS!
