The Monday Agenda 3/24/2014

MondayAgendaNot 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?

Despite another week of real-life craziness, I did manage to read some great books!

Night Broken (Mercy Thompson, #8)Grasshopper JungleThe Summer I Wasn't Me

Night Broken by Patricia Briggs: Loved it! My review is here.

Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith: Weird and wonderful. My review is here.

The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi: Done! Watch for my review and blog tour post about this terrific YA book on April 5th!

The kiddo and I have more or less ditched Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper, although we may end up giving it one more shot. We also read the first chapter of Treasure Island, but we’re feeling very non-committal at the moment.

Fresh Catch:

No new physical books this week, but I did get a few e-ARCs that look pretty terrific:

What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?

The Shambling Guide to New York CityThe Storied Life of A. J. FikryVisible City

I’ve just started The Shambling Guide to New York City by Mur Lafferty, and so far, it’s a riot.

After that, I’ll be diving into:

The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

Visible City by Tova Mirvis

And also in the works:

echoThe Outlander Book Club’s re-read of An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon continues! Coming up this week: Chapters 49 – 53. Want to join in? Contact me and I’ll provide all the details!

So many book, so little time…

That’s my agenda. What’s yours? Add your comments to share your bookish agenda for the week.

  1. I’m glad to hear that you’re enjoying The Shambling Guide. I have the 2nd installment in that series that needs to be read. Am unsure if they really need to be read in order but I’m a stickler for reading in order SO I’m going to have to pick that one up soon. Looking forward to your review!

    • So far, so good! It does seem to me like something that should be read in order, unless the 2nd one is completely unrelated. It’s very light, but that’s what I really needed this week!

      • I really have no clue what they’re actually about, except there are zombies. lol The 2nd book just showed up at my house so I haven’t really checked it out. Light reads are always good every once in a while. 🙂

  2. I didn’t realise Gabrielle Zevin had a new book out… Yey! 🙂 These all look good! I shall look out for that review of JV’s YA title – especially since you enjoyed it. Have a great reading week.

    • I haven’t read a GZ book that wasn’t YA before, so I’m really looking forward to this one (plus I’d want to read it even if I didn’t already have a high opinion of the author, since the plot sounds so good!) Have a great week of reading too!
