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.
Another busy workweek, but I managed to get outside a bit and enjoy the nice weather. And yet again, I somehow ended up with far less reading time than I expected.
What did I read during the last week?
The Ninth Metal by Benjamin Percy: Terrific science fiction! My review is here.
I Don’t Forgive You by Aggie Blum Thompson: Suburban thriller — could be a good beach read. My review is here
Pop culture & TV:
My son and I have been watching the MCU movies in release order, on and off, over the last couple of months. We got back into it this week, and watched Doctor Strange, Spider Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnorak. Good times!
I also started Sweet Tooth on Netflix, and I’m loving it! I think I have three episodes left.
Puzzle of the Week:
Once again, none. It’s been a busy week!
No new books this week.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Rabbits by Terry Miles: I’ve read about 50% so far. All about a secret, underground game that seems to be altering reality. It’s weird, but oddly compelling.
Now playing via audiobook:
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison: This is taking me forever, which sucks, because I love this book! I just haven’t had much listening time.
Outlander Book Club is doing a speed-re-read of Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, #8 in the Outlander series. We’re reading and discussing 5 chapters per week. Let me know if you want to join in — the more, the merrier! This week: Chapters 31 – 35.
As for my other ongoing book club read, I’ve decided to quit our classic, Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth. It just wasn’t catching my attention, and there are plenty of other books for me to read!
So many books, so little time…

I’m hoping to start Rabbits soon, I keep hearing how weird it is and I’m a little intimidated! Have a good week, Lisa😁
Thanks, Tammy! Rabbits is weird for sure — can’t wait to hear what you think!
Enjoy your reading!
Thank you! Have a great week!
I did that with some of the latest MCUs and taking breaks. I have an hour left in Endgame. Then shows!
We’ve gotten up through Infinity War, as of last night. But we’ve watched WandaVision and Falcon/Winter Soldier already. We’re going to finish the movies, then watch Loki!
Lol, see I’m doing the true chronology route. Sorta!
We debated whether to go in story chronology order or by release date…
