The Monday Agenda 4/14/2014

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 Ghost Train to New Orleans (The Shambling Guides, #2)Love Letters to the DeadThe Serpent of Venice

The Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty: Done! My review is here.

Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira: Done! My review is here.

The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore: Done! Be sure to check out my blog tour post on April 22nd.

Fresh Catch:

I behaved myself this week — didn’t buy, borrow, or request any new books! All bets are off for the coming week though — my library’s big spring sale starts on Tuesday, and that’s always dangerous territory for me!

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

Far From YouThe Here and NowBurial Rites

Coming up this week:

Far From You by Tess Sharpe

The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

And for an upcoming book group discussion: Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

Random pop culture goodness:

Orphan Black returns this week!

And is anyone watching the AMC’s new series, Turn, about a Revolutionary War spy ring?

I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier last weekend, and was super impressed with the way the movie’s events carried over into Agents of SHIELD.

And yeah, Mad Men is back too, and I’m not sure that I care…

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 64 – 68. 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. Hope you enjoy Burial Rites! I found that to be one seriously impressive debut novel. I watched the first episode of Turn and it wasn’t bad, but not super awesome, but I’ll likely continue watching.

    • You know, I really know next to nothing about Burial Rites at this point — didn’t realize it’s a debut novel! I’m looking forward to it, and I appreciate hearing that you thought highly of it! I haven’t had a chance to watch the 2nd episode of Turn yet, but I’m planning to. For me, the series ties in nicely with my re-read of An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon, and it’s helping me visualize some of what I’ve only read about up to now.
