The Monday Check-In ~ 3/26/2018

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 during the last week?

No big surprise here — I’ve been continuing my madly obsessed reading of the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire.

I read two more novels:

… and two related stories:

Check out my posts about:

Pop culture goodness:

Santa Clarita Diet is back! I watched all 10 episodes of season 2 over the weekend. That show is so funny, so gross, and so bonkers. I love it… but now I have that post-binge letdown, knowing it’ll be another year until I get more. Here’s hoping there will be a season 3!

Sorry about the blood spatters! This is not a show for the squeamish.

Fresh Catch:

No new books this week! Although I did get a bit carried away with pre-ordering and EBay shopping…

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

Yup, more October Daye. With tears in my eyes, I’m starting the 11th book in the series, The Brightest Fell, knowing that after this, I’ll be all caught up and will have to wait for the next new release in September!

Now playing via audiobook:

The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich: This is a book group book. So far, I’m enjoying the story (set in 16th century Venice), but the narrator is driving me a bit mad. Hopefully, the plot will remain interesting enough to see me through.

Ongoing reads:

Book group reads:

  • Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade by Diana Gabaldon: Outlander Book Club is doing a group read of LJ&BotB, two chapters per week. If you’d like to join in, ask me how!
  • Classic read: My book group’s current classic read is Middlemarch by George Eliot.  We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week… so I’ll be reading Middlemarch for months and months to come.

So many books, so little time…

    • Well, after I finish crying… 🙂 I think I’m going to avoid getting involved in any other series for a while, and start reading my backlog of ARCs!
