The Monday Check-In ~ 3/6/2017

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?


The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock: Just beautiful. My review is here.

Next Year For Sure by Zoey Leigh Peterson: Unusual and entertaining. My review is here.


In audiobooks, I finished the utterly delightful Prudence by Gail Carriger. Sheer silly fun — just as I’ve come to expect from Gail Carriger’s books.

Pop culture goodness:


In movies, I finally watched the magnificent Moonlight. It’s a movie that needs time to sink in. I found myself thinking about it all night after watching it, as small moments clicked into place for me. Powerful and beautifully made — watch it.

Fresh Catch:

One new book, for an upcoming blog tour:


What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

The River at Night by Erica Ferencik

Now playing via audiobook:


Imprudence by Gail Carriger: Well, of course I’m going to listen to Imprudence next! I’m excited to start book #2 of the Custard Protocol series — although I’m dreading the letdown that will inevitably follow once I finish and have to wait for the release of book #3.

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 #4 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…
