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?
Hello From the Gillespies by Monica McInerney: Done! My review is here.
Serenity: Leaves on the Wind by Zack Whedon: Done! Simply a must for Browncoats. Check out my thoughts, here.
Revival by Stephen King: Done! My review is here.
I bought a bunch of books as gifts, but sssssh… I’m not telling yet.
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
I’m looking forward to reading:
The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes
The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
And as a maybe… The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue: I started this book over the past weekend, but my eARC has so many formatting issues that I’m giving up. I’m hoping to either get a better ARC or find it at my library, but if not, this one goes back on the pending pile for now.
Elsewhere on the blog:
I wrote a round-up post on All the Books I Meant To Read, covering books published September – November that I just haven’t gotten around to yet.
We can all relate, right?
Pop culture goodness:
I took advantage of the long weekend to see two movies, The Theory of Everything and Mockingjay. Very different movies! I enjoyed both, but only one has left me obsessed with a song:
Shared with the kiddo:
Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #3) by Patricia C. Wrede: We didn’t do much reading over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, so there’s still a lot to go. So far, so good!
Now playing via audiobook:
Just finished: Book #3 in the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs, Fair Game. I’d read it before, but enjoyed the story all over again via audiobook.
Just starting: A book I’ve been wanting to get to for quite some time, Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I’ve listened to about five chapters so far, and it’s fantastic.
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!
Landline by Rainbow Rowell: Outlander Book Club’s book-of-the-month for December.

So many book, so little time…
