The Monday Check-In ~ 2/19/2018

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.

Life.

Ugh. This winter has been the worst. I was home sick for another three days this week, and I still can’t get past this stupid cough. I’m tired of it!

The only positive thing about feeling lousy is all the reading time I’m squeezing in, in between naps and cups of tea.

 

What did I read last week?

By the Book by Julia Sonneborn: A modern-day retelling of Persuasion (sort of). My review is here.

A Local Habitation by Seanan McGuire: Finished the audiobook, and loved it!

Deadline by Mira Grant: SO in love with this series!

Note: For those who don’t know, Seanan McGuire and Mira Grant are the same person — so yes, I’m clearly obsessed with this author at the moment.

Fresh Catch:

This arrived:

Doesn’t it look amazing?

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

Blackout by Mira Grant — book three of the amazing, intense Newsflesh trilogy. Why did I wait so long to finally read these books?

Now playing via audiobook:

An Artificial Night by Seanan McGuire: October Daye, #3. Terrific urban fantasy series.

Ongoing reads:

Book group reads:

  • Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade by Diana Gabaldon: Outlander Book Club has just started a group read of LJ&BotB, two chapters per week. If you’d like to join in, ask me how!
  • My book group’s classic read is Fences by August Wilson — we’ll be done this week.

So many books, so little time…
