Weekend reads and greeting spring...

It snowed pretty heavily on the first day of Spring -- no surprise for Boston -- but my wife treated me to three gorgeous bouquets of flowers nonetheless.  Every morning they cheer me up -- although it's been nice and sunny in Boston, the melting gray slush depresses me!

Today I plan on finishing up The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards by Kristopher Jansma and this weekend I'll be starting Ellen Sussman's The Paradise Guest House.

What are you reading this weekend?

  1. I'll be reading Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. Spring was here but it left and now winter's back.

  2. I am reading In Between Days by Andrew Porter (I believe), a collection of short stories titled Survival Skills by Jean Ryan and I must finish The Painted Girls. It is so good but I had to put it down for a book tour read and I keep forgetting to put it back in my bag.

    I leave for Spring Break in a week so I am thinking of what to take with me. Duh! My book for the read-along I am hosting (Wind-Up Bird).

  3. I will be starting The Roots of Betrayal by James Forrester this weekend and I hope to have lots of free time to really dig in (my son will be visiting family for his spring break so mama's free :)!). I live in Florida so we typically only have one type of weather...warm and (often) drizzly. Great for reading though!

    1. I lived in South Beach, Miami, for about a year right after college. Heaven. I miss that weather so much!

  4. Beautiful flowers! I will be starting Paradise Guest House next week. This week I am reading The Good Woman by Jane Porter - an easy, breezy read which I am thoroughly enjoying. Have a good weekend!
