The Monday Agenda 5/19/2014

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?

Then and Always: A NovelWe Were LiarsThe Girls at the Kingfisher Club

Then and Always by Dani Atkins. Done! My review is here.

We Were Liars by by E. Lockhart: Done! My review is here.

The Girls At The Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine: I’m at about the 50% mark; reserving judgment until I see where the story goes.

13th childThe kiddo and I are continuing on with Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede, although we didn’t make much progress this week.

Fresh Catch:

Bunches of new (but mostly used) books this week:

Across the Great Barrier (Frontier Magic, #2)Secrets of the Sea HouseThe Highland WitchThe BookstoreThe Cavendish Home for Boys and GirlsThe Curiosity

Elsewhere on the blog:

I started obsessing about what to read on vacation, and whether my Kindle can survive a day at the beach.

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

The FarmThe Girl with All the GiftsBittersweet

This week, I’m looking forward to:

The Farm by Tom Rob Smith

The Girl With All The Gifts by by M. R. Carey

Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

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 89 – 93. It’s hard to believe we’re so close to the end!

And maybe I’ll just leave this here until August:


What do you think? Is it possible to have too many Outlander references? (Image via Starz)


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. Spending time with Sebastian Barry this week which always makes me happy. About half-way through The Temporary Gentleman. Listening to Jonathan Tropper’s Everything Changes. Another dependable author for me. Eager to start Anthony Doerr’s latest.

  2. The Curiosity was very good, hope you enjoy it!
    Wheeeeeeeeeee August 9th! No, not possible to have too many Outlander references. Not possible at all. 😀

    • Well, I didn’t really think it was possible! Getting giddy just thinking about it… Definitely looking forward to The Curiosity, glad to hear you liked it! Have a great reading week.

    • Thank you! I’m really looking forward to ALL the books — if only I can find time for them all. 🙂 Wishing you a wonderful reading week, & thanks for stopping by!
