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?
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes: Done! My review is here.
The Martian by Andy Weir: Just getting started.
Earlier last week, I spent a good chunk of time binge-reading The Unwritten series by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. Wanna know my post-binge thoughts? Check ’em out here.
I came across someone just GIVING AWAY books (don’t you love that?), and here’s what I got:
The Jason Segel book is brand new and signed, and that makes me really happy. Can’t wait to read it!
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
I plan to start the week with Hello From the Gillespies by Monica McInerney (the November book for Fields & Fantasies!).
And… I’m expecting my copy of Stephen King’s Revival any day now – and as soon as it arrives, I’m jumping in.
I’m also really tempted to go straight to more Jojo Moyes, but I’m forcing myself to read other things… for now.
Shared with the kiddo:
Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #3) by Patricia C. Wrede: It’s getting better, but still not as much fun as the previous two books in the series.
Now playing via audiobook:
Just finished: I’ve decided to re-read (re-listen?) to the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs. I just finished up book #2, Hunting Ground, and loved it even more the 2nd time around. Can’t get enough of Charles and Anna!
Just starting: I’ve decided to give Shirley Jackson’s We Have Always Lived in the Castle a try, even though it breaks with my usual routine of only listening to the audio version of books I’ve read before. This is one that’s new to me… so we’ll see if I can keep my mind from wandering enough to actually absorb what’s going on.
Book club reading:
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…
