The Monday Check-In ~ 2/29/2016

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.

In real life:

leap day

It’s very weird to type “February 29th”, isn’t it?

What did I read last week?

Two-Family HouseStars AbovePlay with Fire

The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman: My review is here.

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer: Such a great way to wrap up the Lunar Chronicles series! My review is here.

In audiobooks, I finished the 5th book in the always outstanding Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow, Play with Fire. Can’t wait to start the next one!

Elsewhere on the blog:

I’m starting my Outlander rewatch! I’ll be rewatching all of the season 1 episodes and posting recaps/reactions throughout the next month. 16 episodes to savor all over again! If you’re doing the same, come chat with me and share your thoughts.

OL rewatch

Fresh Catch:

No new books this week. Yay, me!

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
The Travelers

The Travelers by Chris Pavone: 20% in, and it’s great so far!

Now playing via audiobook:

Blood Will Tell

I can’t help it! I need more Kate Shugak!

Ongoing reads:


My book group is reading and discussing two chapter per week of both Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon and Emma by Jane Austen. This is an online group, and anyone is welcome to join us — so if you’re interested, just ask me how!

So many books, so little timeโ€ฆ

  1. I would be interested in your book group ๐Ÿ™‚ You always seem to be reading such interesting things, and I like the idea it’s a few chapters at a time (all other book groups seem to be the entire book and I inevitably forget I’m meant to be reading something D: )

    Ooooh I might start watching Outlander, I’ve caught a couple of episodes but I have no idea which ones (and they were probably out of order lol)

  2. The tRavelers looks interesting, and so do the Stabenow covers. And have fun with the Outlander re- watch- I think recaps of shows are fun. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy leap day!
