The Monday Check-In ~ 1/30/2017

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?

dusk-or-darkfinishing-3

Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day by Seanan McGuire: Done! My review is here.

Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail Carriger: Absolutely loved book 3 of the Finishing School series. Onward we go!

Pop culture goodness:

Two more of my favorite TV shows are back!

the-magicians-season-2

The Magicians, season 2 — and…

blacksailsposter

Black Sails — the final season!

Fresh Catch:

Two new books this week!

needful-things kindred-gn

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
 leviathan-wakes

Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey: This is a BIG book. I started four days ago, and have only made it to about 50% so far. (Granted, it’s been another busy week with not enough time to read, but still.)

Now playing via audiobook:

manners-mutiny

Manners & Mutiny by Gail Carriger: I’m on Book the Fourth in Gail Carriger’s Finishing School series — and I have such mixed feelings! I’m loving the book… but I’m sad that I’m almost done! Whatever will I do without Sophronia and the girls of Mademoiselle Geraldine’s?

Ongoing reads:

MOBY

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!

And an upcoming group read:

One Hundred Years of Solitude

Outlander Book Club has just selected One Hundred Years of Solitude for our next group classic read. We’ll be starting in mid-February, reading and discussing one chapter per week. Interested in joining in? Ask me how!

So many books, so little time…

  1. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.. I still haven’t watched the first episode of Black Sails! I think a part of me is still whining about it being the last season. lol I watched the first episode of The 100 last night… I keep thinking I need to call it quits with that one.
