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.
How did I do with last week’s agenda?
I read three terrific books this past week:
When You Were Here by Daisy Whitney: Done! My review is here.
Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg: Done! My review is here.
The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells by Andrew Sean Greer: Done! My review is here.
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick: I read the first 20 pages, and just couldn’t get into it — and the formatting problems with the ARC didn’t help. So, for now, this is a DNF book for me. Have you read it? Should it I give it another try once it’s available in hard copy?
The Silver Chair by C. S. Lewis: Moving along — we got a slow start, but my son and I have enjoyed the first four chapters so far.
New to me this week: A graphic novel, a book for a discussion group, and two library books that I’d been waiting for (not entirely patiently):
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
How to decide? I was on a good, long wait list for both The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Humans, and now they’re both here! I hope to find time to read both this week, once I figure out which one to read first.
It’s doubtful that I’ll finish both and still have time for anything else — but if I do, it’ll be a review copy of a new middle-grade book, Trash Can Days.
Meanwhile, our Narnia journey continues with The Silver Chair.
So many book, so little time…
That’s my agenda. What’s yours? Add your comments to share your bookish agenda for the week.
