Weekends reads and getting festive...

Countdown to my winter holiday break! My workplace closes next Tuesday for a week, so I'm really looking forward to that.  I've got a massive holiday break reading queue in the works, starting with...

My weekend read is Mistress of the Wind by Michelle Diener. I'm an enormous fan of Diener's work, so I can't wait to see how she handles fantasy and a retelling of a favorite fairy tale of mine, East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

I've just finished two really fantastic books I can't squee about -- I'm blurbing them for Bloggers Recommend so you'll find out a little after the first. Then I'll be shouting about them nonstop.

I hope to get my top ten reads of 2013 posted on the 30th -- am still struggling with whittling down the list to ten!

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. I am very glad they Tuesday is a holiday so there are 3 days off, and I took the rest of too ;)

  2. Looking forward to your top ten of 2013 post! And, the books you want to 'squee' about! ;) Your Sony reader (am I correct?) looks so cool. I love the red, but I dare not purchase yet another e-reader being the owner of three generations of nooks with a kindle paperwhite arriving just today. I'm rather embarrassed, yet it is cheaper than a nightly bottle of wine, is it not? :)

  3. Hope you've enjoyed your break!
