The Monday Check-In ~ 5/2/2016

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.

What did I read last week?

Library of Souls9Hunters Moon

I finished my binge-read of the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series! My wrap-up post is here.

Hunter’s Moon by Dana Stabenow: The Kate Shugak is usually my reading equivalent of comfort food — but I was not at all prepared for the emotional devastation of this book! I love the series and the main character and will absolutely continue onward… but I’m also so mad at the author right now!

Outlander update!


Season 2 rocks! Here’s my reaction post for the 4th episode, “La Dame Blanche”:

Insta-Reaction: Outlander, Season 2, Episode 4

Elsewhere on the blog:

I’ve reached my breaking point! I’m swearing off ARCs for the rest of the year. Check out my DisembARCing post.

Fresh Catch:

Two pre-orders arrived from Book Depository this week:

EligibleRose & Dagger

I’m excited for both… but I suppose I need to start by reading The Wrath & the Dawn first!

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
Everyone Brave is Forgiven

Everyone Brave Is Forgiven by Chris Cleave: I’ve read two books by this author so far, and I’m excited to be starting his new release.

Now playing via audiobook:


I’m about halfway through my audio journey back through Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The audiobooks are great fun. Looks like I’ll be continuing with these for a while.

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 time…
