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.
First and foremost: Happy New Year! Here’s wishing all my dear book-world friends a year of laughter, health, and great reading!
What did I read last week?
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness: Done! My review is here.
Extra fun fact about this book: The book cover glows in the dark! My photo doesn’t capture it very well, but it’s just so cool!
Named of the Dragon by Susanna Kearsley: Done! My review is here.
I had a fun afternoon browsing at the used book store with my daughter… and of course, we didn’t come away empty-handed. Here’s what I bought:
And here’s what she picked out:
Yes, we both picked up copies of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars. Because Shakespeare. And Star Wars!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald: I’m just getting started, but it seems quite sweet and quirky so far. Gotta love books about books!
Now playing via audiobook:
Still working my way through the audiobook of The Outlandish Companion, Volume II. Quite fun and interesting! I think I’ll finish during the coming week.
Gearing up for my book club’s new group reads for 2016, starting next week!
So many book, so little time…

Love the idea of a glow in the dark cover 🙂 I enjoyed The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend
Have a great reading week
Thank you! I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed TRoBWR. Thanks to a sleepless night, I got a lot further in the book, and I’m really liking it so far!
I have that Jojo Moyes book! It’s one I have yet to read but she’s a fantastic author. Someday. 🙂 Happy Reading!
I always love her books! I think that brings me to two of her older books that will be sitting on my shelf, but at least I’ll have them when I’m ready to go. 🙂 Happy New Year!
