Reader's Roundtable Episode 27: Anticipated Reads

This month we chat about what we’re currently reading and what’s on or in our really, really, long TBR (To Be Read) piles, lists and bins. Not everything is currently holdable but most will be by the end of the month. While you're reading, consider signing up for the Summer Reading Challenge! You can log your participation points until August 8.
