Weekend reads and I'm feeling ambitious...

I have a four day weekend ahead of me and I plan to read like a reading thing.

The proof of my ambition is here: I've got seven books in my queue to try this weekend.  (Perhaps not try and finish, but at least have a go.  I'm hoping to finish a few!)

Mette Ivie Harrison, The Rose Throne
C.C. Humphreys, Jack Absolute
Paula McLain, The Paris Wife
Adolfo GarcĂ­a Ortega, Desolation Island
Katey Schultz, Flashes of War
Anthony C. Winkler, The Family Mansion
Felicity Young, Antidote to Murder

Happily, I'll be spending the weekend with a friend (a kind of staycation, from one suburb to another!) who is as much a reader as I; I anticipate she, I, and my wife will spend a good deal of time on the back porch in companionable silence reading, interrupted only by cooking. It will be a delicious weekend (no pun intended!)

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. Enjoy your reading binge! Sounds like heaven.

  2. That sounds like a fantastic way to spend a holiday weekend!

  3. Enjoy your four days of reading. That sounds amazing! Hope at least one of those picks is a winner too:-)

  4. The long weekend begs for special reading but I am stillllll trying to get Constellation of Vital Phenomena read. It's not the book. It's totally me as I have been battling health issues and it's depressed the hell out of me. I actually have to go to the doctor tomorrow which sucks!

    I want to be reading something really juicy. A real page turner but I gotta get through this book first as the tour is Tuesday!

  5. Food and books...ahhhh, sounds fantastic to me! Have a great weekend :)

  6. I plan to spend my holiday weekend doing the exact same! I'm hoping to get through a minimum of 2... you're ambitious. :) Good luck!

  7. Sounds like a great weekend!

  8. I hope you have a lovely weekend, it sounds like it will be! I've had The Paris Wife on my shelf for some time now but I'm definitely saving it up for a relaxing weekend.

  9. Sounds sublime to me... Look forward to hearing what you think of Antidote to Murder. Enjoy!

  10. I reviewed Felicity Young's The Anatomy of Murder for the HNS. You will have to let us know if the sequel is just as fine.
