The Monday Check-In ~ 2/5/2018

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?

Feed by Mira Grant: I am in love with this book. And YAY ME for finally reading it, after having it on my “want” list for so many years.

The Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander: This novella defies description — it simply must be read. My review is here.

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah: I was totally blind-sided by how much this book affected me. My thoughts are here.

And in audiobooks:

I finished Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire, the first book in the October Daye urban fantasy series. Loved it! My reaction is here. Moving on to book #2!

Pop culture:

Trying to cram in a few Oscar-nominated movies before March! I managed to watch one this past week:

The Shape of Water was beautiful! I can’t stop thinking about it.

Fresh Catch:

Oops – I may have gone a bit overboard with my Newsflesh obsession:

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

I’m planning to get through a couple of ARCs before returning to zombies…

Now playing via audiobook:

A Local Habitation by Seanan McGuire: October Daye, #2 — loving this series so far!

Ongoing reads:

Book group reads:

  • Lord John and the Succubus by Diana Gabaldon: Our group read of this novella ends this coming week. Next up: Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade
  • My book group’s next classic read is Fences by August Wilson, starting this week.

So many books, so little time…
