The Monday Check-In ~ 12/5/2016

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.

Life.

I am one proud mama! I attended my amazing daughter’s grad school graduation this weekend. She’s a smart, dedicated, loving, funny, quirky, intelligent woman, and I couldn’t be more impressed and proud of her accomplishments!

What did I read last week?

man-called-oveforever-interrupted

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman: What a delight! My review is here.

Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Beautiful and heartbreaking. My review is here.

Fresh Catch:

No new books this week… although I did indulge in Cyber Week sales by picking up several marked-down Kindle and Audible titles!

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
 05-the-black-moon

The Black Moon by Winston Graham: Continuing with my Poldark obsession — this is book #5 in the series.

Now playing via audiobook:

No idea! I finished my last audiobook while I was away, and haven’t had a chance to start a new one. I’ve added bunches to my Audible library recently, so maybe I’ll just choose at random!

Ongoing reads:

MOBYFarewell to Arms 2

My ongoing reads 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

So many books, so little time…

  1. Congratulations to your daughter! It sounds like she will have many successful years ahead of her. I cannot imagine how proud you are. I am so nervous that mine will be heading off to college and that is still 2 years out haha.

  2. Aw, huge congratulations to your daughter! Quite an achievement. 🙂 I’m about to finish my current audiobook and I feel the same… I have a TON on my phone that I’ve been looking forward to so I feel a random pick will be in order. 🙂
