The Monday Check-In ~ 6/15/2015

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.

I’m back! I was away last week, on a combination theme park vacation and visit to see family. I’ll share some Florida pics later this week… including all the latest from Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley (via Universal). I had some days full of leisurely reading, and some days where I only managed to read a few pages before falling asleep. Here’s what I’ve been up to:

What did I read last week?

Eight Hundred GrapesAliveAfter the Golden Age

Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave: Done! My review is here.

Alive by Chandler Baker: Done! My review is here.

After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn: Done! My review is here.


Paper Towns by John Green: Done! I read this one for an upcoming book group discussion, but will probably write up a mini-review to share later this week as well

Fresh Catch:

No new books! Sure, I may have placed an order or two, but since I’ve been away, nothing new has actually reached me yet.

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
Wolf Borderblue stars

Two books competing for my attention:

  • The Wolf Border by Sarah Hall
  • Blue Stars by Emily Gray Tedrowe
Now playing via audiobook:

dead heat

I didn’t do any audiobook listening while I was gone, so I still have about a week’s worth of Dead Heat to go… loving every minute.

Ongoing reads:


One with the kiddo, two with Outlander Book Club!


So many book, so little time…
