Friday Reads and I'm all over the place...

I'm juggling two wildly different books for FridayReads and the weekend: A Different Sky by Meira Chand (historical set in 1920s-1950s Singapore) and In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton (contemporary YA featuring a sturdy heroine with goblin blood). The differing reads suit my differing moods. It's been a rough week and sadly, my weekend doesn't promise to be very quiet, so I'm just hoping I can get through next week and survive until the Thanksgiving holiday (when I'll have four days off!).  Needless to say, I'm counting down the days!

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. I hear you with the busy week and the busy weekend coming up. I'd just like a few minutes to read thank you very much. LOL

    I'm reading two different books as well: Song of the Nile by Stephanie Dray and A Train in Winter by Caroline Moorhead.

    Have a great weekend, and just keep your eyes on the long Thanksgiving break!

  2. I won't be reading very much this weekend, as I have a Fall Festival at church to organize. It's going to be a heck of a crazy day, and I am hoping that it goes off really well. As far as reading time goes, well, that will be sadly lacking!

  3. I have a review to write for a poetry book and just finished up we the animals yesterday (stunning book)! I am reading Camp Nine later today after work...pesky work...always in the way of my reading.

    Have a great weekend....I'm hosting an early birthday party for that first commenter up there...(Anna)!

  4. It's crazy here as well, and I can only see it getting more hectic!

    I am reading The September Queen by Gillian Bagwell and The Wars of the Roses (non-fic) by Desmond Seward.

    Have a good weekend and try to relax a bit :)

  5. ooh, curious about the Meira Chand, how is it? working my way through the Marriage Plot - like, not love, so far. Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Both sound good :)
    I am a bit bored with my book, so I shall not mention it

  7. @Anna: Exactly! Looking forward to your thoughts on both those reads -- A Train in Winter I obv immediately thought of you, and when I saw you had read Lily of the Nile I was v excited.

    @Heather: Good luck -- fingers crossed that your Fall Festival goes well (and isn't too exhausting!).

    @Serena: Oooh, looking forward to both reviews (I'm so regretting not hopping on the tour for Camp Nine now!). And hooray for Anna's birthday -- fun!!

    @Svea: I haven't read any Bagwell -- but I need to -- I'll look for your review.

  8. My reading is sadly lacking as is my commenting lately. lol. I'm just starting a book for Monday - Her Sister's Shadow and I've also got The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay on the go. They are both very different books as well. Hope you have a great weekend and manage to find a few peaceful moments.

  9. My reading's been suffering a bit this week. Hopefully I can make up for it this weekend. I'm reading The Lotus Eater and The Easter Parade. I also have a book of short stories, Volt, to read.

    I hope you find some time to read this weekend.
    Hang in there :o)

  10. yup, the holiday season upon us makes it tough reading times. and too, i feel like reading sentimental stuff instead of what's on the docket.

  11. Don't have too much planned for the weekend, so I hope to catch up on some reading and reviews. Enjoy any free time you squeeze in.

  12. I'm finally reading Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin.!
