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?
Depth by Lev AC Rosen: Loved it! My review of this sci-fi/noir detective story is here.
The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay: My review is here.
Destiny’s Plan by Victoria Saccenti: My review is here.
The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters: My review is here.
In graphic novels, I read Intro to Alien Invasion by Owen King, which is a pretty amusing story of a college campus being taken over by icky alien beings — and the students who fight to save the world from annihilation.
Elsewhere on the blog:
I wrote a wrap-up post on North and South — reading the book and watching the BBC mini-series. Check it out, here.
Two library hold requests came in this week:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
I’m a little torn, but I think I’ll start with:
- Stand-Off by Andrew Smith: This is a sequel to the amazing Winger (review) — and since there’s a waiting list at the library, I really should read it first and then pass it along.
- Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling): I’m so excited to read the newest Cormoran Strike novel!
Now playing via audiobook:
I’m about 2/3 of the way through The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown, and although I don’t usually go for non-fiction, I’m really enjoying this one.
Getting close to the end of our book group read!
So many book, so little time…

Oooh I’ve heard about North and South and I really wanna watch the series but I also wanna read the book first but I have so many books on my TBR! Help!
Such a dilemma! I’d say watch the series, if you’re really interested. It’s a much smaller time commitment, and you can always read the book when you’re ready to tackle a longer project. They’re both great!
Oh my Oh my! Career of Evil!!! 😀
Have you read it yet? I’m so excited for it!
Not yet! I’ve read the first two, though. (The Cuckoos Calling and The Silkworm) I bet that will be great!
