The Monday Agenda 12/8/2014

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?

The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes: Done! My review is here.

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion: I’ve read about 25% so far. It’s great to hang out with Don and Rosie again!

The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue: DNF – for now. My ARC was so badly formatted that I had to put it down. I’d still like to read this, but I’ll wait for my library to get a copy.

Fresh Catch:

Two of my library requests just came in!

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

I should be done with The Rosie Effect in the next couple of days. After that, I’m looking forward to:

First Impressions by Charlie Lovett

The Perfect Mother by Nina Darnton

(This is assuming that I can resist my library books… which is highly doubtful.)

Ongoing reads:

Shared with the kiddo:

Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, #3)talking to dragons

Calling on Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #3) by Patricia C. Wrede: Finished! After a shaky start (involving way too many talking animals), Calling on Dragons turned into a good magical quest filled with a great mixture of adventure and humor. My son and I both enjoyed it, and he insists on starting #4 immediately – so onward we go, starting Talking to Dragons!

Now playing via audiobook:


Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand is just taking my breath away, it’s so good. I have about three hours to go… and I keep looking for excuses to go for long walks or drives so I have time to listen! Such an incredibly powerful book.

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.

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!

    • I’d been wanting to read Unbroken since it came out a few years ago, and then I finally realized that I should get to it before the movie comes out later this month. It’s really an incredible story.

    • Ooh, too bad about The Perfect Mother. It might be a bit too “ripped from the headlines” for my usual taste, but I’ll give it a try. I really love Unbroken! I don’t end up reading much non-fiction, but I’m so glad I finally started this one!
