Weekend reads and staying up way too late...

I cheated and posted this picture of my weekend read last night (Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen) as I knew I'd be reading it once it became Friday morning. And I was right!

I'm a bit overtired but dying to get back to it -- and I'm sure I'll finish tonight --so will have to tack on something else for my weekend read.  I've got about four books started that I need to buckle down and finish.

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. The book sounds good and I love your mug! I'm reading W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton but probably won't have time to read the next few days.

  2. I think I am going to start How to Be a Good Wife. I thought maybe IO would start the new Wally Lamb book but I am not quite in the mood to read it, yet.

  3. Lovely font choice on that book! Good luck with all the reading, I've three books I'm going to try to read but a weekend is pretty short really :(

  4. How cozy! It looks like I'm finally going to finish That Awful Mess on the Via Merulana tonight -- and then it's on to some hist fic with I Am Venus! Have a great weekend!

  5. The Goldfinch. Night Film. I WILL FINISH THINGS.

    Also, I'm glad that book is so apparently awesome.

  6. I just got that as well! Can't wait to hear your thoughts. :)

  7. How do you like Mrs. Poe so far? I am so jealous you got that one.

  8. I so want to read Mrs. Poe! still finishing up a few things. The Tenth Witness, Dirty Love . . .

  9. Kitten woke me up too early... *yawns*

  10. I got a copy of Mrs. Poe this week - it looks great. This weekend (while attempting to stay awake since I woke up too early) I'm reading James Scott's Kept.

  11. Hallo Audra,

    The book that has me aching for more of its world right now, is "The Secret Keeper" by K.B. Laugheed! I was up past the midnight dawn last night, in fact, as I simply could not put the book down! Save for the failure of my eyes to continue where my heart wanted to go! I only just saw a quick murmuring of "Mrs. Poe" within the last few days of making my 'rounds (blogs I love), and I am most intrigued! At first I wasn't sure if I could dig into "The Secret Keeper" as the opening sequence rather gobsmacked me, but then, I realised, it was quite natural given the time and setting! Before I knew it, I was more than half-way through the book, and fearing, as the pages were thus numbered, I would soon arrive at the conclusion, quite hungry and whet for more! We shall see! I am mere moments away from reading my proper fill of it! :)

    I agree with you completely,... I love finding books that jolt us out of our personal living spheres and transport us directly into theirs! I always long for such finds!!

    In the mug,... coffee or tea!? And, if which of your preference, what kind!?
