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?
House of Glass by Sophie Littlefield: Done! A story of a home invasion that quickly spirals out of control, House of Glass focuses on the family whose world is turned upside down and how their relationships and secrets factor into the dangerous situation they face. Shelleyrae at Book’d Out wrote a spot-on review of this book; you can see it here.
The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson. Done! My review is here.
16 Things I Thought Were True by Janet Gurtler: Done! My author Q&A, review, and blog tour post can be found here.
The kiddo and I are finished D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths this week, and loved it! A great book to share, one that we each enjoyed. Finally, a successful book pick for the two of us!

And the next volume in one of my ongoing series… which I really, seriously need to get caught up on one of these days:
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
I’m also practically bouncing off the walls waiting for the new Mercy Thompson book to arrive this week! Night Broken by Patricia Briggs will be released this Tuesday, and this will be a (as they call it in my son’s school) DEAR book for me — “drop everything and read”! Can’t wait.
And also in the works:
Next up for the kiddo and me: We’re just starting Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper.
So many book, so little time…
That’s my agenda. What’s yours? Add your comments to share your bookish agenda for the week.
