Weekend reads and enjoying free time...

Somehow, I'm at the end of my second week of sabbatical, and I don't have much to show for it, writing-wise. However, I've enjoyed spending days with Unabridged Baby, doing the things I can't when I'm working and I'm grateful for this time.

I have gotten in scads of reading, though, which is just lovely. Still behind on reviews, but this, as with so much else, is my new normal.

I'm reading Marci Jefferson's Enchantress of Paris: A Novel of the Sun King’s Court, which is just gripping. French court drama, lesser known historical figures, witchcraft, and a not-typically-gorgeous heroine. I'm super in love.

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. I'm woefully behind on reviews, too, and don't have a sweet baby as an excuse. I'm reading Circling the Sun by Paula McLain. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Oh, I hope you enjoy it. I really liked it even though I think McLain made some interesting choices abt how she articulated events in Markham's life. I'm still working on a review, wrestling with it all..!

  2. Unfortunately, I am not going to be reading this weekend. I am going to be busy creating a history test about the Civil War.

  3. Thank you for being part of the Tour & the giveaway chance. I'm really looking forward to reading Naked.

  4. Ah...extended time off is great, isn't it? I read Crooked River by Valerie Geary this weekend and loved it. (Blog post/review in process.) And started The Black Hour by Lori Rader-Day, who I will meet in person this Thursday! Fun weekend! And a fun week in store! Hope it is the same for you, Audra! :)
