The Monday Agenda 5/26/2014

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 Girls at the Kingfisher ClubThe FarmTrouble

The Girls At The Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine: Done! My review is here.

The Farm by Tom Rob Smith: Done! My review is here.

Trouble by Non Pratt: At about the 50% point, and liking it a lot so far.

13th childThe kiddo and I are continuing on with Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede. Moving sloooooowly. Not the book’s fault; we just seem to have a hard time lately finding time to sit down and read.

Fresh Catch:

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

The Witch of Little ItalyWhat Alice ForgotMy Real ChildrenHollow City (Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, #2)

I shared my thoughts about stats, page views, and whether numbers matter — chime in here to share your input!

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

The Girl with All the GiftsBittersweetEmpire Girls

First up, I need to read the rest of  Trouble by Non Pratt, which I’m really enjoying.

After that, I’m looking forward to reading:

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

Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

Empire Girls by Susanne Hayes & Loretta Nyhan

I have no idea if I’ll actually get to more than one or two books this week, but it’s nice to have a goal!

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 94 – 97 (no chapter on Memorial Day). The end is in sight!

Outlander love:

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

And adding to the Outlander mania, here’s my Outlander-themed “shelfie”:

So many book, so little time…

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

    • Do it! Do it! I’ll be honest, I didn’t love it the first time I read it (maybe because I’d read the entire series straight through and was a bit burned out by the end), but I’m close to the end of the group re-read now and enjoying it so much more this time around! Plus… new book in 2 weeks!!

  1. I love your Outlander shelfie! My collection is such a hodgepodge of different editions, but I have a special soft spot for my tattered mass market paperbacks of #1-4 with the old covers. And I really do wonder about the decision to make the paperback of Echo in the Bone lime/neon green…I have the hardback of that one!

    • Ha, that green is pretty atrocious — although it’s very easy to spot from across the room! This pic doesn’t include my battered mass market paperbacks, which I love as well! And then there’s the Kindle collection…
