The Monday Check-In ~ 2/6/2017

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?

leviathan-wakesmanners-mutiny

Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey: Loved it! Check out my thoughts on the book (and the TV series based on it), here.

Manners & Mutiny by Gail Carriger: I just finished the audiobook of the 4th and final book in the charming, delightful Finishing School series. I’ll write up some thoughts as soon as I have a moment to breathe.

Bloggy happiness:

I woke up to this nice notification in the middle of the week:

followed-blog-1000-2x

My little home-grown blog, Bookshelf Fantasies, has hit the 1,000 followers mark!

Thank you to one and all who’ve read my posts, shared some thoughts, and made my blogging life such fun over the past four years! I appreciate you all.

Fresh Catch:

No new physical books this week, but I did snatch up a few e-books with Kindle price drops:

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
 alwaysgilded-cage

I’m trying not to let myself fall behind on my ARC reading schedule. Next up are two February new releases:

  • Always by Sarah Jio
  • Gilded Cage by Vic James
Now playing via audiobook:

Fire Touched

The next Mercy Thompson book comes out in March, which means it’s the perfect time for me to revisit Fire Touched via audiobook. This series can go on and on forever, as far as I’m concerned!

Ongoing reads:

MOBY

My book group is reading and discussing Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon — 2 chapters per week — with an end date coming up in June.

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…
