The Monday Check-In ~ 8/6/2018

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?

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: Powerful and thought-provoking. My review is here.

Bellewether by Susanna Kearsley: Another delicious read by a favorite author. My review is here.

Fresh Catch:

No new books this week. Yay, me! Finally, a little restraint when it comes to my bookish habits. Although I did check out a few from the library…

What will I be reading during the coming week?

Currently in my hands:

Night and Silence by Seanan McGuire: I just got this ARC, and have pretty much dropped everything else to read it! It’s the 12th book in the October Daye series, which is only my favorite thing ever. SO EXCITED TO HAVE THIS IN MY HOT LITTLE HANDS.

Now playing via audiobook:

Imprudence (The Custard Protocol, #2) by Gail Carriger: All of my audiobooks lately seem to be re-reads. I’m revisiting the world of Imprudence before I start reading the newly released 3rd book in the series, Competence.

Ongoing reads:

Book group reads:

  • Classic read: My book group’s current classic read is Middlemarch by George Eliot.  We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week… and we have a long way still to go.
  • The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon. Continuing our group read of the Lord John works, it’s lovely to revisit The Scottish Prisoner, which stars Lord John Grey and everyone’s favorite Scottish laird, Jamie Fraser. Want to join in? Ask me how!

So many books, so little time…

  1. Great post, Lisa! I love your library choices and cannot wait to read your thoughts on Charlotte! I’m also curious about You, Me, Everything. I have that one from Edelweiss but haven’t been able to work it in yet. I hope you have a great reading week ahead!
