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?
Last week, I continued with my spotlight focus on I Shall Be Near To You by Erin Lindsay McCabe. My friend Mary wrote a guest review (see it here), and then I chimed in with my list of five reasons that everyone should read this book — like, NOW. Stay tuned: An author Q&A will be coming up this week!
The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegal: Done! My review is here.
Savage Girl by Jean Zimmerman: After reading 20%, I had to put this one on my DNF shelf. The concept seemed interesting… but nothing was happening, and I just couldn’t take any more. If anyone else has read it and wants to convince me to give it another go, be my guest!
The kiddo and I are happily reading our way through Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede, and loving it!
A variety of goodies arrived this week, some bought, some borrowed:
Plus this, which isn’t a book, but which makes my geeky little heart happy:

I whined a bit about trilogies… and apparently, based on comments here and via Twitter, I guess I’m not alone!
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
This week, I’m looking forward to:
Then and Always by Dani Atkins. I’ve read about half so far, and I’m really liking it!
Next up: We Were Liars by by E. Lockhart.
And if there’s time: The Girls At The Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine. A flapper-era retelling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses fairy tale? Yes, please!
And also in the works:
Oh, and this was announced:
What a week!
So many book, so little time…
