The Monday Check-In ~ 4/2/2018

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?

I’ve reached the end of my October Daye series binge. I’ve loved every moment, but now I’m a bit heartbroken that I’m all caught up and have to wait until September for the next new book. You can read my thoughts on the final book (so far), The Brightest Fell, here. Warning: Lots of spoilers in the post!

The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich: I finished the audio version of my book group’s March pick. My thoughts are here.

The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian: A new release from March — my review is here.

Fresh Catch:

I just got my Kindle edition of Stone Mad by Elizabeth Bear, the newly released sequel to Karen Memory (which was awesome!).

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

Pride and Prometheus by John Kessel: This mash-up of Pride and Prejudice and Frankenstein is off to a great start!

Now playing via audiobook:

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz: The audiobook is narrated by Lin-Manuel Miranda. LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA. And if you think that sounds like it would be awesome to listen to, you’d be right! I’m about half-way through, and loving it so far.

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…
