The Monday Check-In ~ 10/30/2017

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?

Indexing by Seanan McGuire: I finished up my audiobook listen — my reaction is here.

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens: I did it! I finally, finally, finally did what I’ve been talking about for years — I read Great Expectations! Some thoughts, here.

Outlander !!

My love for Outlander knows no bounds. Check out my reaction post from last week’s super-sized reunion episode (“A. Malcolm”) here. My reaction post for the 7th episode (“Creme de Menthe”) which aired last night will be up in a day or two –meanwhile, enjoy this little peek:

Fresh Catch:

Three new books this week – so exciting!

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:
 

La Belle Sauvage (The Book of Dust, #1) by Philip Pullman: I started this a week ago, then got derailed by Great Expectations. But now I’m back! Only 3 chapters read so far, but I’m loving it.

Now playing via audiobook:

Indexing: Reflections by Seanan McGuire: I had so much fun with the first book in the Indexing series that I just couldn’t resist moving straight on to book #2.

Ongoing reads:

Book group reads:

  • Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott: My book group’s classic read! We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week.
  • Lord John and the Private Matter by Diana Gabaldon: Outlander Book Club is doing a Lord John readalong — we’ll be reading all of the Lord John novels and stories in story chronology. Let me know if you’d like to participate! All are welcome.

So many books, so little time…
