The Monday Check-In ~ 5/29/2017

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?

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:

HAMILTON!

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.

Fresh Catch:

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…

Ongoing reads:

MOBY

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…
