The Monday Check-In ~ 2/27/2017

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?


The Mother’s Promise by Sally Hepworth: A lovely but heartbreaking book. My review is here.

These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer: I’m loving Georgette Heyer, now that I’ve finally given her books a try! My thoughts on These Old Shades are here.

Fresh Catch:

Three new books arrived this week!

One to feed my obsession with fiction set in Alaska, plus the next two books in the phenomenal sci-fi series, The Expanse.

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

I have a few ARCs I should catch up on, starting with:

  • Next Year For Sure by Zoey Leigh Peterson
  • The Book of Etta by Meg Elison
Now playing via audiobook:


Prudence by Gail Carriger: My listening time was sharply curtailed by the rainy weather this past week, since my main audiobook listening happens during my walks. Still, I’m making progress, and having lots of fun. Gail Carriger’s books never let me down, and all of her audiobooks have been delightful so far.

Ongoing reads:

MOBYOne Hundred Years of Solitude

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.

It’s week #3 of Outlander Book Club’s group read of One Hundred Years of Solitude. If you’d like to join in, just ask me how!

So many books, so little time…

  1. I adore the cover for Other People’s Houses! I wasn’t super fond of Prudence but I bet it’s a ton of fun on audiobook!

    • I didn’t love Prudence originally either, but I’m been on a Carriger roll lately. It’s actually quite fun on audiobook. The playful side of things really comes through, and it’s easier to enjoy how silly it all is. When I finish Prudence, I’ll probably give Imprudence a try too.
