The Monday Check-In ~ 5/9/2016

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?

Everyone Brave is Forgiven10Midnight Come AgainSummer of Lost and Found

Everyone Brave Is Forgiven by Chris Cleave: Done! My review is here.

Midnight Come Again by Dana Stabenow: I read the 10th Kate Shugak book, which puts me squarely in the middle of the series. For my view at the halfway mark, check out my thoughts here.

Summer of Lost and Found by Rebecca Behrens: A charming middle-grade new release. My review is here.

Outlander update!


Season 2 rocks! Here’s my reaction post for the 5th episode, “Untimely Resurrection”:

Insta-Reaction: Outlander, Season 2, Episode 5

Fresh Catch:

No new books this week!… although a couple of library holds are now ready for pick-up. Uh oh.

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
Still AliceRoses and Rot

Still Alice by Lisa Genova: Just finishing. What an intense, emotional book. Review to come in the next day or so.

Roses and Rot by Kat Howard: Just starting. I’ve been looking forward to this one!

Now playing via audiobook:


I’m almost done with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! I’ve been loving the audiobooks, but sadly, my listening time has really dropped to almost nothing since I’m not exercising these days. (I’m not lazy — just injured! Hoping to get back to long walks with good books in my ears ASAP.)

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…

  1. Always such an impressive list! How do you manage reading more than one book at a time? I’m such a one-book-at-a-time reader, my mind can’t split between different books. What’s your secret?
