The Monday Agenda 4/7/2014

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?

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency  (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency #1)The Mapmaker's DaughterThe Ghost Train to New Orleans (The Shambling Guides, #2)

The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith: Done! My review is here.

The Mapmaker’s Daughter by Laurel Corona: Done! My review is here.

The Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty: I’ve read about half of this very entertaining urban fantasy novel (sequel to The Shambling Guide to New York City, reviewed here), and it’s a ton of fun so far.

summeriwasn'tI posted my review and blog tour feature for The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi. The author was kind enough to participate in a Q&A, even answering my dorkier questions! Check the post out here, and be sure to enter the giveaway for this terrific book!




Fresh Catch:

A few new ARCs came my way this week that look pretty awesome:

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

The Serpent of VeniceLove Letters to the DeadFar From You

Once I finish The Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty, I have big plans!

I’m looking forward to starting The Serpent of Venice, Christopher Moore’s upcoming new release (and sequel to his hilarious Fool).

If I can squeeze in a couple more this week, then I’ll devote some time to catching up on review books, starting with Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira and then Far From You by Tess Sharpe.

Random pop culture goodness:

It’s the return of Game of Thrones!

And a very sad good-bye to Being Human.

Being Human Apr3

I’m going to miss these crazy kids.


But at least this week’s Grimm finally answered a question viewers have been asking for three years: How do Wesen spot a Grimm? Inquiring minds want to know.

[Update: Oops! Looks like the video clip that used to live right here is gone from YouTube. Alas…}

Oh, TV, you give and you take…

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 59 – 63. 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.

    • I’ve read everything by Christopher Moore up to now; his weird sense of humor usually is just right for me! I’m looking forward to this one, although it’s been a while since I read Fool. I hope you get Grimm soon! It’s just so much fun.
