The Monday Check-In ~ 10/10/2016

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?

crosstalkWrath & the Dawn

Crosstalk by Connie Willis: A fun read, but I’m not 100% sold on it. My review is here; I’d give it a solid 3.5 stars.

The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh: Done! I’ll post some thought after I finish book #2.

In audiobooks:

girl-waits-with-gun

Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart: Just finished, and I loved it! The story itself is terrific, and the audiobook narration was pretty much perfect. My review is here.

Fresh Catch:

I’m so excited about my one new book from this past week! I have a flight coming up next weekend, and I’m saving this one to enjoy on the plane.

yesternight

Pop culture goodness:

Check out my post about my favorite new TV shows this fall, here.

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
 Rose & Dagger

The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh: I’m getting close to the end of the 2nd book in this duology. Not sure yet what I’ll read next… so many options!

Now playing via audiobook:

dispatcher

The Dispatcher  by John Scalzi: Just starting. This was a free download from Audible, and since I’m a Scalzi fan and really like Zachary Quinto, it definitely seems worth a try. At just over 2 hours, this should be a quick listen.

Ongoing reads:

MOBYFarewell to Arms 2Moby Dick

With my book group (2 chapters per week of each):

  • Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon
  • A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway

Via the Serial Reader app (read about it here):

  • Moby Dick by Herman Melville:  — Making progress. I’m now at 70%, so the end is finally within sight!

So many books, so little time…
