The Monday Check-In ~ 12/7/2015

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?

Aeronauts Windlass

The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher: Awesome start to a new series! My review is here.


In audiobooks, I finished listening to the magical, magnificent Uprooted by Naomi Novik, and absolutely loved it. Check out my review, here.


In graphic novels, I read volume 3 of the outstanding Alex + Ada trilogy by Sarah Vaughn and Jonathan Luna. My post about the series is here.

Wolf Among Us

I also enjoyed The Wolf Among Us, a new prequel to the Fables series (which I love). Fables fans will want to check this one out!

Fresh Catch:

I’ve had an ARC of this book on my Kindle since earlier this year, but when I came across a nice used hard copy, I had to treat myself:

Porcupine of Truth

And… finally!!!… my library request for Winter arrived! As soon as I finish my current book, I’m diving in!


What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
Man in the High Castle

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick: After watching (and loving) the Amazon series, I decided I should read the book!

Now playing via audiobook:

Cold-Blooded Business

I’m continuing on with the terrific Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow, just starting #4, A Cold-Blooded Business.

Ongoing reads:


We’re done! Our 15-month, 127 chapter odyssey has come to its finish. Thank you to Outlander Book Club for another outstanding read-along!

So many book, so little time…
