The Monday Agenda 12/1/2014

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?

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.

Fresh Catch:

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.

General cuteness:

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:

 

Ongoing reads:

Shared with the kiddo:

Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, #3)

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:

fair gameunbroken

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:

scarletABOSAAlandline

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.

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

So many book, so little time…

Happy reading!

  1. My goodness you are doing well! I’ve got through a fair bit of my intended reads this week’s, but still got two reviews to get done. And for once I’ve actually stuck to my reading plans, rather than getting sidetracked by something that I’m not meant to be reading this week – which happens to me ALL THE TIME!

    • I’m always getting sidetracked… In fact, I’m thinking that in 2015, maybe I should plan less and just go with the flow. I’m definitely more relaxed when I stop worrying about what I intended to read and just read whatever I feel like!

      • I get stressed at the thought of books I should have read and reviewed by now…I know I’ll get round to them, but I feel so guilty…I already have loads of 2015 books to be read and reviewed!
