Weekend reads and yet more snow...

Apparently we've got snow coming this Sunday and the following week, making this three (or is it four?) solid weekends of snow.  I mean, I get this is winter and all, but I've grown accustomed to Boston's milder winters.

My weekend read is The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow by Rita Leganski.  (I'm still waking up so my little tableau features my breakfast: yogurt-pineapple-banana-spinach smoothie. Odd color, good taste.)  I'll be (reluctantly) finishing Carol K. Carr's India Black and the Shadows of Anarchy today -- another great read with characters I want to linger with!

What are you reading this weekend?

  1. Oh man, I'm glad it's not supposed to snow here. I'm not sure what I'll be reading. I've only got a few pages left in The Last Girlfriend on Earth and haven't decided what to pick up next.

  2. I know what you mean. I live in MA too and I have to say I am ready for spring and not exactly looking forward to another snow event!! Hopefully March will bring some warmer weather.

  3. Interesting combo for a smoothie! Actually, I thought it was sort of a mocha shake! :--)

  4. No snow here...ever, but it is supposed to rain for the next week. Perfect reading weather. I have an editing job to work on, but I'll limit my working hours because I've been doing a bit too much of that, methinks. :)

  5. I have that book but haven't cracked it open yet.

    This weekend I will be reading Ashenden by Elizabeth Wilhide and I really need to start The Painted Girls by Cathie Marie Buchanan. But if I am being honest, the book that I really want to dive into is In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods by Matt Bell. I can't though. I have to get to the others first.

  6. How is The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow? I have that one too. :)

    1. I must admit, I am going slow, but only because I'm still stuck on the Phillip Rock novels AND I'm almost done with India Black -- they're different 'feels' than Bonaventure Arrow...

  7. Hope your snow isn't too insane. Yuck. I have two days of Girl Scouting events, plus church then laundry - so although I would love to curl up and read for 48 hours instead, I don't see that happening. BUT I am going to squeeze in some reading - of COURSE I'm not a complete moron - so I am hoping to read Queen's Gambit. Yup, another Tudoresque novel. (I PROMISE I'm not a complete moron, this one looks good!)

  8. I don't know how you brave souls can survive with that kind of weather! I think I would never want to leave my house (which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing except the fact that I wouldn't be able to go to work and make any money :)). I am from Florida so am kind of a baby!

    I'll be finishing up William and Lucy: A Tale of Suspicion and Love (which is pretty good so far) and hopefully starting The Last Summer.

  9. We have rain in the forecast and possible snow on Monday. I'm just glad we've had sunshine this week! I'm finishing Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate.

  10. It's going to be colder here too, but since it's Florida, I'm not too worried about snow. I love to throw open the windows and sleep with a heavy blanket when it gets cold, but with you guys over there, that's probably not a good idea.

  11. I'm getting a mixture from your storm...lol we had sleet, but now its back to rain again. I'll be finishing up House Girl this weekend and discussing Shadows by Ilsa Bick with my book club with Anna.

  12. Enjoy the snow at the opportunity for more reading!

  13. Pineapple, banana, spinach yogurt smoothie? That sounds wonderful. My favorite was always pineapple, mango, orange, carrot, with some kale thrown in to cut down on the sweetness. Damn. Now I'm thirsty. LOL!

    It's amazing how quickly we can get used to abnormal weather, isn't it? Although all this snow makes it perfect for staying inside and reading! Enjoy your weekend!

  14. We are due to get more snow here this weekend, too *sigh*. I'm definitely ready for Spring.

    This weekend I'll be finishing Oleanna by Julie K. Rose and starting The Last Summer by Judith Kinghorn.

  15. I think we're supposed to end up with rain down my way now, instead of snow. I'm glad not to have more weekend events cancelled, but wouldn't mind some additional reading time! Just finished The World Without You by Joshua Henkin last night and loved it. Haven't decided what to start next. May finish The Flame Alphabet which I got bogged down in. It's getting embarrassing how long it's been on my "What I'm Reading Now" sidebar!

  16. We haven't had snow for ages, but gloomy, dreary, never ending rain. But it looks like the sun is peeking out today! Amazing!

    I'm hoping to curl up and spend some time with Wuthering Heights this weekend :)

  17. We had a bit more snow last week and I was thinking please no. Luckily here it stopped, but I know how you feel somewhat (we don't get that much snow). Hope the books are good!
