Not a lofty, ambitious to-be-read list consisting of 100+ book titles. Just a simple plan for the upcoming week — what I’m reading now, what I plan to read next, and what I’m hoping to squeeze in among the nooks and crannies.
Another Monday morning, another workweek underway… another opportunity to make grandiose, pie-in-the-sky plans to read everything I can get my paws on. Here’s the latest:
From last week:
Hmm, how’d I do?
Frozen by Mary Casanova: Done! My review is here. Short version: Okay, some nice elements, but not a must-read.
The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker: Done! Here’s my review. Overall, I’d say nicely written but flawed. Still, I’m glad to have read it.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: Finished late last night, review to follow. Highly readable and hard to put down.
In graphic novels, I finished up the Jack of Fables series. A fun additional to the world of Fables, but not essential reading.
Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon (group re-read): Need I keep saying it? Terrific book, terrific chapter discussions!
And this week’s new agenda:
I may veer off the fiction path (shocking, for me) and delve into a few books I’ve been wanting to try:
A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard. Just picked this one up at the library. As a parent, I approach reading this with some trepidation, but I do so admire this young woman’s courage and want to see how she portrays her own experiences.
I really should read one of the Mary Roach books that were my Wishlist Wednesday selections last week, either Stiff or Spook.
In sci-fi/fantasy, I have Jane by Robin Maxwell all queued up on my e-reader. That’s Jane, as in “me, Tarzan”. Sounds like fun!
Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon (group re-read): Chapters 46 and 47 on deck for this week. We’re getting up to some parts that are emotionally difficult. It’s hard when bad things happen to characters you’re so invested in!
So many book, so little time…
That’s my agenda. What’s yours? Add your comments to share your bookish agenda for the week.
