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?
Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow: I did it! I finally finished this huge book! Fascinating read. My reaction post is here.
The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North: A great premise with a disappointing execution. My review is here.
Pop culture goodness:
I saw Hamilton with my 14-year-old son on Sunday, and it was just as amazing as everyone says it is! I lucked into sitting in the 3rd row — incredible.
My preordered Kindle edition of River of Teeth arrived! It’ll be my very next read.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Mothers by Brit Bennett: I’m reading this at the recommendation of my daughter, and really enjoying it so far.
Now playing via audiobook:
Lady Copy Makes Trouble by Amy Stewart: So close to the end! I have about 30 minutes left on the audiobook, and can’t wait to hear how it ends. Not quite sure what to listen to next…
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon: My book club started a group read of this book back in January 2016 — and we now have just 2 1/2 weeks before the end! What an amazing journey it’s been.
So many books, so little time…

‘The Mothers’ is something that I came across recently and I can’t wait to read it! I’m looking forward to seeing what you have to say about it 🙂

Hamilton is so exciting!! So great you got to go with your son 🙂
Now I”m dying to see it again!
