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?
What with one thing and another, it’s been a pretty slow (but fun) reading week:
Longbourn by Jo Baker: Done! I loved this inside-out look at the world of Pride and Prejudice, as told from the perspective of the Bennets’ servants. My review is here.
Bad Houses by Sara Ryan and Carla Speed McNeil: Done! A quick and engaging graphic novel. My preview of this upcoming new release is here.
The Incrementalists by Steven Brust and Skyler White: Still reading — about 70 pages to go. A lot of the virtual reality stuff is going pretty much over my head, but it’s still interesting and puzzling enough for me to keep going and see if I can make it all make sense.
The Expeditioners by S. S. Taylor: My read-aloud book with my son — going great! I think we have another week or two to go.
I’m still trying to be good and stick to the plan of finishing off all my current (and a teeny bit late) review books before digging into all the new books begging to be read. Meanwhile, two of my requests came in at the library this week:
Two very different books, but I’m looking forward to both!
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
Still sticking with my commitment to focus on review copies, this week I’ll be reading:
First, I’ll be trying to finish up with The Incrementalists. And after that, I have a few more books lined up that I’m excited about:
- How To Be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman
- Reality Boy by A. S. King
- Parasite by Mira Grant
I realize that I’m being overly ambitious and probably completely unrealistic in thinking that I’ll make it through four books this week… but hey, a reader can dream, can’t she?
So many book, so little time…
That’s my agenda. What’s yours? Add your comments to share your bookish agenda for the week.
