The Monday Check-In ~ 1/29/2018

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?

Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions by Amy Stewart: Fabulous audiobook! My review is here.

Still Me by Jojo Moyes: Loved this follow-up to Me Before You and After You. My review is here.

Started and stopped:

I don’t know if it’s even worth mentioning, but I read the opening chapters of two very different books last week — one for book group, one just because — before deciding that I just wasn’t in the mood to continue:

Maybe I’ll go back to one or both at some point… but for now, they’re back on the shelf.

Fresh Catch:

One new book this week:

The cover blurb made me laugh — find out why, here.

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

Feed by Mira Grant: Woooo! I’m so excited to finally be starting the Newsflesh books… because a) I’ve wanted to read these for a long time now, and b) this was actually one of my series reading goals for 2018!

Now playing via audiobook:

Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire: Time for a little urban fantasy… and the start of another series from my reading goals list!

Ongoing reads:

Book group reads:

  • Lord John and the Succubus by Diana Gabaldon: Our group read of this novella continues — contact me if you’d like to join in.
  • My book group’s next classic read will be Fences by August Wilson, which we’re starting next week.

So many books, so little time…
