The Monday Check-In ~ 5/8/2017

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 Boy on the Bridge by M. R. Carey: Done! My review is here.

Sleeping Giants by Sylvian Neuvel: A re-read via audiobook — and man, is the audio version fun! Check out my original review of this book, here.

Pop culture goodness:

I finally watched season 3 of AMC’s Turn, and posted a few thoughts here.

Fresh Catch:

Two new books this week:

I’m so excited for both of these!

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
 

First and foremost, I can’t rest until I finish the new Kate Shugak book — #21 in the series! It just arrived on Saturday, and as of mid-afternoon Sunday, I’m at 65%. I’m sooooo happy to be back in Kate’s world!

Up next will be Brimstone by Cherie Priest, which I need to read before the library due date… and which sounds so good to me.

Now playing via audiobook:

I’m listening to Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel, the sequel to Sleeping Giants. And so far, it’s just as much fun as the first!

Ongoing reads:

MOBY

The end (of the book) is nigh! After over a year of reading and discussing Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon — 2 chapters per week — we’re within sight of the final chapters.

The Time Machine by H. G. Wells: I’m reading The Time Machine using the Serial Reader app, and having about 40% left to go. I’ll wrap it up this week!

So many books, so little time…
