The Monday Check-In ~ 1/15/2018

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?

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman: The illustrated version is such a treat! See below for a link to my post about this book and Saga.

Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman: I finished the audiobook! My review is here.

Binti by Nnedi Okarafor: Another audiobook — I decided to re-read via audio, and although I’m glad I revisited the story, I can’t say that I was terribly impressed by the audiobook itself. This is one book thats’ definitely better on the page.

In graphic novels:

I caught up on Saga! Such an amazing series.

I wrote up some thoughts on Neverwhere and Saga, here.

Fresh Catch:

Three new books this week:

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

I’m FINALLY reading Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld, which has been sitting on my nightstand for over a year now.

Now playing via audiobook:

Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions by Amy Stewart: I’m really excited to be starting the 3rd Kopp Sisters book!

Ongoing reads:

Book group reads:

  • Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott: Finally, it’s the last week of my book group’s classic read!
  • Lord John and the Succubus by Diana Gabaldon: Our group read of this novella continues — contact me if you’d like to join in.

So many books, so little time…

  1. Last week I saw Binti in the bookstore and I really, really wanted to buy it, but then I bought another book. I know! Why??? I’m going back, for sure! I really want to read Binti.
