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.
Whew. I’m back. I had an intense couple of weeks in Florida, working with my sisters to move our folks into an assisted living facility, close out their old house, and get all the million details of their lives straightened out. It was insane and exhausting, but ultimately went really well. And now I’m home, back to my regular life! Which means I’m easing back into my blogging life as well.
Apologies to anyone who was looking for Shelf Control and Thursday Quotables in the last two weeks — I just couldn’t keep up with my normal blogging routine while I was away. But have no fear! All will be back to normal as of this week, with my Wednesday and Thursday features up and running on schedule.
What did I read last week?
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden: Lovely book. My review is here.
Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn: Just finished – review to follow.
Two books arrived this week by the same author — one an older book, and one a shiny new release!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian: Planning to start today. A new book by one of my favorite authors is always reason to cheer!
Now playing via audiobook:
Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger: I am *this close* to finishing the 2nd book in Gail Carriger’s Finishing School series, and it’s such great fun that I’ll be continuing straight on with book the third, Waistcoats & Weaponry.
My book group is STILL reading Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon — 2 chapters per week — and will be until June 2017!
So many books, so little time…

Happy Monday!! The Bear and the Nightingale looks pretty good. 🙂 Glad everything worked out in Florida. Must’ve been pretty hectic.
