The Monday Check-In ~ 7/27/2015

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?

Maybe in Another LifeGo Set A Watchman

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Done! My review is here.

Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee: I read this book during the past week, and shared some thoughts about it here.

Elsewhere on the blog:

I shared some highlights and photos from my trip to the Canadian Rockies, here. (I know, I know… other people’s vacation pics!)

I also wrote a bit about revisiting Jane Austen’s books without really planning to. Check out My Year of Austen!

Fresh Catch:

One new book added to my toppling stacks this week:

Northanger Abbey 3

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

Continuing on with the Poldark series by Winston Graham, I’m in the middle of the 2nd book, Demelza. The fact that the BBC production is so unbelievably gorgeous is definitely a contributing factor to my interest in these books! But really, I’m just truly enjoying the story.

Now playing via audiobook:

Sense and Sensibility 2Mansfield Park

My year of Austen audiobooks continues! I just finished Sense and Sensibility over the weekend, and I’m now starting Mansfield Park. I’m loving “re-reading” these books via audio.

Ongoing reads:


My kiddo and I have completely stalled out on our Eldest reading project. I should check to see if he’s still interested in continuing (because if he’s not, I’m not sure that I’ll bother with it either). Also ongoing, my two group reads with Outlander Book Club — two chapters per week from now until we’re done!

So many book, so little time…
