The Monday Check-In ~ 4/27/2015

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?

Secrets We KeepCold Day 2

The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver: Done! My review is here.

A Cold Day for Murder by Dana Stabenow: Finished the audiobook! My review is here.

Elsewhere on the blog:

I just haven’t had time for much of anything — including, it would seem, thinking ahead. Looks like I won’t be doing a TTT post this week. I looked at the topic and drew a tremendous blank… and I just don’t have any brain cells to spare at the moment. But I’ll dive back in next week, I’m sure!

Fresh Catch:

Two new books arrived this week:

all i loveMapmaker's Children

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
the booksellerRook

I’m participating in the blog tour for The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson this week, so finishing the book is priority #1! After that, I plan to read Rook by Sharon Cameron.

Now playing via audiobook:


I finished my most recent mystery via audiobook — see above for the link to my review of A Cold Day for Murder by Dana Stabenow.

I’ve just started listening to Emma by Jane Austen (narrated by Juliet Stevenson) — and it is a total hoot! I’ve read the book before, but listening to it, especially all of the dialogue, is a blast.

Ongoing reads:

I’ll be reading the first two here for months to come — one with my kiddo and one with Outlander Book Club. Also in Outlander world, I’m more or less reading along with the TV show, trying to read the chapters that I think will be covered in each week’s new episode — which is definitely time- consuming on top of all of my other reading! (I read about 100 pages for the most recent episode…)


So many book, so little time…

    • I’m really loving it this time around… and thinking that once I’m done, I might keep going with more Austen via audio! Have a great week. 🙂

  1. haha I drew a total blank on this weeks TTT too but I’m trying to fill it in with another review in addition to my typical Thursday, Friday, Saturday review posts and I don’t see this happening but who knows. lol

    I started reading the first chapter of Outlander and got so sucked in. I had to make myself stop and get back to my review books. lol

    • Well… you could keep reading Outlander and then review it! Does that count? I’m skipping a few of my normal posts this week, just because things are busy and I need to take some deep breaths. And maybe just read for fun!
