The Monday Check-In ~ 7/4/2016

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.

Happy 4th of July!

I hope you’re all enjoying fireworks, parades, and barbecues galore!

What did I read last week?

16Whisper to the Blooddefending taylor

Whisper to the Blood by Dana Stabenow: Yup, another Kate Shugak. This makes 16 for me… and I’m going to keep on going with the series.

Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally: I always enjoy this author’s books, and her newest is no exception! My review is here.

HP3

In audiobooks, I finished listening to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! I’m loving my HP audio re-read. I have a few other things to listen to for now, but I’ll circle back around for book #4 in the next month or so.

Outlander update!

No new episode this past weekend… and I’m already bracing myself for inevitable tears when the season finale airs on July 9th. I can’t believe season 2 is already coming to an end!

Fresh Catch:

I picked up a paperback of Mr. Mercedes, which I think will be coming in my suitcase when I pack for vacation next week.

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
17A Night Too Dark18Though Not Dead

Our SongAlison Wonderland

Well, I’d like to get through the two remaining Kate Shugak novels currently in my possession before they’re due back at the library… but if I need a Kate break, I do have a few other things to choose from!

Now playing via audiobook:

Agent to the Stars

Ha, this science fiction comedy is narrated by Wil Wheaton and is hilarious as of chapter 1! I’m only just getting started, but I think this will be a fun one.

Ongoing reads:

MOBYemma

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…
