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.
I’m back, busily bustling through bunches of books (and amusing myself with alliteration, it would seem).
How did I do with last week’s agenda?
This is really a two-week check-in, since I was away (on a lovely vacation, thanks for asking!) and skipped a week of blogging. Here’s what I’ve read since my last update:
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde: Done! Loved it. My review is here.
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel: Done! My review is here.
A Small Death in the Great Glen by A. D. Scott: Done! My review is here.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: Done! Beautiful book. My review is here.
Saga, volumes 1 and 2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples: Amazing new graphic novel series from the author of Y: The Last Man, one of my favorites. I loved the two volumes of Saga, and can’t wait to read more.
Well, I was away, after all, so the fresh catch collection is on the smallish side:
Yes, I did read Saga, volume 2 already, the second it reached my hot little hands! The other books are from a giveaway (When You Were Here — thank you, Perpetual Page-Turner!) and two ARCs that were just approved. Looking forward to all of them!
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
I’ve just started Joyland by Stephen King, and I’m hooked!
Next up, one of my pending review copies, either Mist by Susan Krinard or The Book of Secrets by Elizabeth Joy Arnold.
Plus, I’d really love to get to more of the books on my summer TBR list!
My kiddo is safely home from an “awesome” time at summer camp, and ready to resume our nightly reading tradition. We’re continuing our Narnia quest, and will be starting The Voyage of the Dawn Treader this week. Four books down, three to go!
That’s my agenda. What’s yours? Add your comments to share your bookish agenda for the week.

I really loved The Book of Secrets.
You did some great reading and read a lot of books I still want to read so it is good to see you did enjoy them.
Have a great week!
Thanks, Ciska! So far, I’ve really been hearing great things about The Book of Secrets — can’t wait!
