The Monday Check-In ~ 9/12/2016

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:

I went to a social event! And by social event, I mean book event. I went to a Silent Reading Party, and it was just as awesome as it sounds. Check out my post about it, here.

What did I read last week?

Dark Matter

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch: Done! Wow, what a ride. My review is here.

New release celebration!

Check out my spotlight post (with a terrific author Q&A) for The Memory Wall by Lev AC Rosen. The book comes out tomorrow!

Fresh Catch:

Just one new book this week — I picked up a used copy of a book that’s been on my TBR list since last year:

book-of-speculation

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
 MAgician King 2

The Magician King by Lev Grossman: I figured it’s about time to return to this trilogy and read the 2nd and 3rd books.

Now playing via audiobook:

Android's Dream

The Android’s Dream by John Scalzi, narrated by Wil Wheaton: Silly, sci-fi fun. I should be done in the next few days.

Ongoing reads:

So many books, so little time…
