Weekend reads and not feeling great...

Even though it's gorgeously mild outside, I've been stuck inside most of this week -- and sadly, not reading!

My wife has been home all week with pneumonia and I've been wracked with a migraine, so needless to say, there's been very little reading going on.  I'm wicked behind on that and reviews, and I'm a tiny bit stressed!

I'm starting to feel a smidgen better, and my weekend reads will be The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones by Jack Wolf and The Bequest of Big Daddy by Jo-Ann Costa. (That's a make-me-feel-better mango lassi next to the book.)

What are you reading this weekend?

(Also, I'm at a loss about linking this week -- I personally am disappointed in GoodReads being bought by Amazon.  Now they've got Shelfari, LibraryThing, and GoodReads -- is there another social reading network I should use?)

  1. How awful when both of you aren't feeling well! I'm so sorry, and hope you all get better soon!

    I'm working on the third volume of the Delirium trilogy (you will almost always finding me working on a volume of a trilogy these days!)

  2. Isn't it the worst when both of you are sick? I hope you're better soon! I'll be finishing up Life After Life by Kate Atkinson today.

    1. It's horrible -- especially since I still have my migraine. I want to poke out my eyes! Looking forward to your review of Life After Life!

  3. So sorry you're both sick... that's the worst! Hope a quiet weekend will help. I'm starting High Rising by Angela Thirkell this weekend and am listening to Calling Me Home (love it so far).

  4. Hope y'all feel better soon.

    Right now I'm reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and I'm really impressed with it. It is sooooo long though.

  5. Hope you both feel better soon! Migraines are the worst. I'm reading And Then I Found You by Patti Callahan Henry and listening to Ocean Beach.

  6. I hadn't heard that Amazon bought Goodreads, but that excites me. I'm still partial to LibraryThing over Goodreads in terms of organization, and their founder/owner posted this on Twitter clarifying the Amazon element of ownership (http://www.librarything.com/topic/152033). It sounds like it's still the best alternative for you.

  7. I hope you and your wife feel better soon. Pneumonia and migraines are no joke. I will be reading Like Chaff in the Wind, and finishing up Skipping a Beat. ON audio, I am listening to Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, and hope to start The Burgess Boys as well.

  11. It's really tough when you are so sick you don't feel like reading... I blame it on the change of seasons.

    At the moment I'm reading an atmospheric crime thriller set in Guadeloupe called Another Sun by Timothy Williams.

  13. I hope you're both feeling better by now! I'm reading The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer and wish I could just sit and read it all day, but my husband is home working around the house and I'd feel too guilty. (Just taking a quick peek at my blog subscriptions now while he's outside in the yard!)

  14. I'm also reading Bloody Bones. I'm about halfway through and I like it so far. I was a little worried about the style!

    I'm kind of on the fence about Goodreads. I use Amazon a LOT (I even have Prime), but I don't want Amazon to bleed over into Goodreads. That's a lot of info Amazon will have on my reading habits. But then again, Facebook also has that info because I have my GR account linked to it. I do use Library Thing, but mostly to keep track of my books, not to keep track of my reading/what my friends are reading.

    Hope you feel better!

  15. Hope you feel better soon :) I'm getting through Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, loving it! I've taken my reviews down from GR, just in case they get posted on Amazon, though I'm keeping my account and ratings for now.
