The Monday Check-In ~ 4/13/2015

cooltext1850356879 My Monday tradition, including a look back and a look ahead — what I read last week, what new books came my way, and what books are keeping me busy right now. Plus a smattering of other stuff too.

What did I read last week?

prudenceHurricane Sisters

Prudence by Gail Carriger: Done! My review is here.

The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank: Done! Watch for my blog tour post this Wednesday.

Elsewhere on the blog:

I celebrated my 1,000th post! It really snuck up on me… wow! I’m doing a little giveaway to mark the occasion, and it’s not too late to enter. Check out the details here.

Pop culture goodness:

I guess I’m not the only one excited for the return of Game of Thrones:

Fresh Catch:

Two new books this week — one purchased, one from the library.

Desperate FortuneThis One Summer

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
Desperate Fortuneforgotten_garden

A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley: A new book from one of my favorite authors is always a reason to smile.

And then, I really need to find time to start The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton, the OBC discussion book for April.

Now playing via audiobook:

Continuing on with my audio re-read of the Mercy Thompson series: I finished #7, Frost Burned, and I’m partway through #8, Night Broken. And then I’ll be done! I really don’t want to leave this world, but sadly, I’ll be finished with all the Mercy audiobooks and will have to move on to something else.

Ongoing reads:


Eragon by Christopher Paolini: I finally picked Eragon back up this week. Very slow progress, since I’m reading along with my kid, and his interest comes and goes.

A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon: Reading and discussing two chapters per week with Outlander Book Club, from now until whenever!

Outlander Book Club’s Book-of-the-Month read for April is The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. Discussion starts April 22nd. All are welcome!

So many book, so little time…

    • Oh, yes, definitely check out the Mercy books! It’s such a great series, and still going strong! Ha, that’s really funny that you fell asleep during GoT. 🙂 That’s the great thing about DVRs — it’s still there whenever you want it. Enjoy!
