The Monday Agenda 11/10/2014

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?

Lizzy and JaneUssearching for dragons

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay: Done! My review is here.

Us by David Nicholls: Done! Loved it. Watch for my blog tour post coming up on 11/21!

Searching for Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede: My son and I finished up the 2nd book in the Enchanted Forest series, and really enjoyed it. Here’s my Goodreads post with my initial reaction.

And also… I dove back into The Unwritten series, re-reading volumes 1 and 2 and then continuing on with 3 and 4. I feel an obsession coming on!

Fresh Catch:

I didn’t buy or borrow any new books this week, but I did receive this one — my first ever win via Goodreads First Reads!

The Expeditioners and the Secret of King Triton's Lair (The Expeditioners, #2)

Signed and everything! My kiddo and I loved the 1st book in this series, and we’re really excited to get a copy of #2 for our very own.

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

A book club pick, and then we’ll see. I find myself not really feeling like doing a whole lot of planning this week. Maybe because I’ll end up just wanting to continue reading every volume of The Unwritten series until I’m all caught up!

But assuming I stick to my agenda, here are the books coming up next for me:

me before youmartiangillespies

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

The Martian by Andy Weir

Hello From the Gillespies by Monica McInerney (the November book for Fields & Fantasies!)

Pop culture goodness:

Is anyone else watching Jane the Virgin? I’ve just inhaled the first four episodes, and I think it’s kinda hilarious.

Ongoing reads:

Shared with the kiddo:

Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, #3)

Calling on Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede: We’ve just started the 3rd book in the Enchanted Forest series. My reaction after just one chapter? Too many talking cats, not enough dragons. In fact, no dragons. Sigh. I’ll need to keep reminding myself that it’s only the first chapter, and hope for a quick improvement.

Now playing via audiobook:

hunting groundI’m working my way through a re-read (re-listen?) of the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs. I just finished up Cry Wolf over the weekend, and now I’m moving on to Hunting Ground. I adore the characters and the stories as a whole, and listening to the audiobooks is a treat.

Book club reading:

The Scarlet PimpernelA Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander, #6)me before you

Classic read: The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. (One chapter per week)

A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon: Reading and discussing two chapters per week, from now through the end of 2015!

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes: Outlander Book Club’s book-of-the-month for November.

Want to join any of the group reads? Let me know and I’ll provide the links!

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. Much nicer cover over there (the US) than we had here (the UK) to Hello From The Gillespies – although it’s not really my thing, a lot of bloggers over here have written great reviews, so I hope you enjoy it!
