The Monday Check-In ~ 4/9/2018

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?

Pride and Prometheus by John Kessel: My review is here.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz: My (audiobook) review is here.

Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs: Book # 5 in the awesome Alpha & Omega series. My review is here.

In children’s books:

I reviewed Chelsea Clinton’s two terrific picture books, here.

Also read & enjoyed:

  • The Walking Dead: Lines We Cross by Robert Kirkman: Volume 29 of the ongoing series
  • Daughter of the Midway, the Mermaid, and the Open, Lonely Sea by Seanan McGuire: An audio short, from the CarniePunk collection. Quite fun.

Fresh Catch:

I found someone selling books 1 – 10 of the October Daye series on EBay… and my box with all these beauties arrived this week!

Now I just need for #11 to get released in paperback.

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

Feedback by Mira Grant: Heading back into the Newsflesh world once again!

Now playing via audiobook:

The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir by Jennifer Ryan: A book group book!

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…
