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?
Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando: Done! My review is here.
Gathering Storm by Maggie Craig: Done! Historical fiction set in Scotland in 1743 — not as “romance-y” as it looks. I’ll have a review posted a bit later in the week.
The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley: Just started — but I’m so excited to finally be reading this one!
Dinosaur Summer by Greg Bear: My son and I are about 80 pages into this science fiction novel, which is a follow-up to the 1912 novel The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The early chapters were a bit confusing for both of us, but now the action in Dinosaur Summer is picking up and we’re having a slightly easier time with it. The jury is still out in terms of whether this will ultimately be an enjoyable choice for the kiddo and me — but we’re hanging in there!
No new paper-and-ink books this week — which is a relief, since I’m about to be drowned by my TBR piles! I did pick up a few Kindle titles, taking advantage of holiday season price drops:
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley: I’ve only just begun… so I expect this novel will take up most of my reading time this week.
BUT… if I’m able, then I’ll plan to start two ARCs that are in my queue for December:
Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherin Reay
The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine
So many book, so little time…
That’s my agenda. What’s yours? Add your comments to share your bookish agenda for the week.
