2 Weeks: Ya Right!

I finished the 6th book in the Outlander series: A Breath of Snow and Ashes about a week ago! It took me a little longer than normal to finish it, since I have just been so tired and staying up late to read just wasn't happening. But it was so, so good!
Since the next book in the series, Echo in the Bone was only recently published, it is not out in paperback. I decided to borrow it from the library, because I don't want to buy the hardcover version and I don't want to wait till it comes out on paperback to read it. As it is my friend Jenn is starting to get antsy, because we haven't been able to discuss yet! :) So knowing how popular the series was, several months ago I put it on reserve. I was around the 10th or 11th hold at the time and I finally got to pick it up on Friday! Perfect timing! 
I am soo excited as I have heard such great things about it, but the kicker is I have two weeks to read the book! Because there are other holds on it, I can't renew at the end of the two weeks. The librarian basically told me to just not return till I was finished and pay the late fee. Gabaldon's books take me about a month to finish. Paperback version is around 1500 pages. There is absolutely no way I can finish it in two weeks.
I don't know what to do. I could possibly just return it at the end of the two weeks and put it back on reserve. There are currently 2 holds on the two copies. I think that might be the way to go since I don't think I will even be able to finish the book in a month due to how tired I have been lately.
What do you think?

The dizziness is the worst! I was singing in the choir at church, and had a dizzy spell so bad that I almost lost it!

I found that keeping those packaged peanut butter crackers in my purse really helped. It's not the healthiest thing, but your body needs the protein.

You will feel amazing in your second trimester!
