The Monday Check-In ~ 6/13/2016

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?

14Taint in the BloodGirl on the Train

A Taint in the Blood by Dana Stabenow: Another terrific installment in the Kate Shugak series.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkinsl: Yes, I finally read it. My review is here.

Pop culture goodness:


I saw Love & Friendship this week, and loved it! I’ve never read Lady Susan, but this adaptation definitely makes me want to read the original.

Outlander update!


Here’s my reaction post for season 2’s 10th episode, “Prestonpans”:

Insta-Reaction: Outlander, Season 2, Episode 10

Fresh Catch:

No new books this week!

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
One True Loves

One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid: This contemporary romantic tale is off to a good start.

Now playing via audiobook:

The Magicians

This is a re-read via audio, and I’m loving it.

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…
