The Monday Agenda 7/7/2014

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.

Life:

Busy, busy week… thus, not much reading or reviewing! We had relatives visiting for most of the week, which was delightful. Plus, 4th of July celebrations! And my little guy (who’s not so little) left for three weeks of summer camp yesterday, which meant that I spent a good chunk of the weekend ironing name tags into clothes. (If you’ve ever gone to summer camp, you’ll understand!)

How did I do with last week’s agenda?

Skin Game (The Dresden Files, #15)Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands

Skin Game by Jim Butcher: Done! Another excellent entry in the Dresden Files series. Review to follow.

Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands by Chris Bohjalian: Just started.

Fresh Catch:

No new books this week!

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

Close Your Eyes, Hold HandsLandlineThe Awakening of Miss Prim: A Novel

I’ll be continuing with Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands (of course).

The new Rainbow Rowell book arrives this week! I’m really looking forward to reading Landline.

And if there’s time, I’ll be starting The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalie Sanmartin Fenollera.

Meanwhile, I really need to clear some space in my reading life for new week’s big release, The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness. Finally, book 3 in the All Souls Trilogy!

 

Across the Great Barrier (Frontier Magic, #2)The kiddo and I are still enjoying Across the Great Barrier by Patricia C. Wrede — although it’s now on hold for a few weeks, until he gets back from camp.

So many book, so little time…

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

Happy reading!

  1. Finishing Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore is the top of my list so I’m ready for next week’s Book Club discussion. I ordered quite a few titles, but am at the mercy of what’s arrived at the library. It’s kind of nice to not have a huge pile in front of me this morning.

    • Oh, Mr. Penumbra! That’s been on my to-read list for over a year, and I really do want to read it! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it. Have a great week!

  2. I just finished and posted the review for The Book of Life and have to say it is the best one so far. I think you will love it. Make time to squeeze it in somewhere:)

  3. Thanks for the reminder on the book of life. I need to finish up a few books so that I can get to that one. I also need to read the fever, it’s on hold with the library right now.

    • Once again, I’m completely overwhelmed! I still have to read The Fever as well, plus The Book of LIfe next week, plus another book for a blog tour that I committed to ages ago… and meanwhile, I still haven’t touched the new Stephen King!
