Weekend reads and feeling very busy...

My weekend read is Mary Robinette Kowal's new historical fantasy, Ghost Talkers. This one is set during World War I, and features the British Army's Spirit Corps, a group of mediums who debrief those who die in action in hopes of using that intel to help their troops. I'm totally smitten already and wish I could just read this rainy day rather than work!

Life has been pretty busy otherwise: lots of things to do on weekends, which is both lovely and tiring; and both my wife and I have had hectic work lives. I'm also doing some writing in hopes of getting into a nine-month writing intensive, so if things go well, it seems like the busy won't end! But that's not always bad, right?

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. Busy is tiring but fun too! The only problem is, after a while, you forget how to relax.

  2. I am feeling busy even though I'm not. Registration for school is next week and classes start right after. My reading time will be hijacked for homework time. The Girl is in 8th grade but common core really forces me to be doing the homework with her. Much of it makes little sense.

    I am reading Sweetbitter. A big book for the summer but I am not loving it.

  3. Oo, Ghost Talkers sounds wicked fun. I started one or two of MRK's books before, but they weren't exactly what I wanted. Ghost Talkers sounds like EXACTLY what I would want. Lovely.

  4. That looks interesting! This weekend? I read more in City In the Autumn Stars by Michael Moorcock, and, as ever, enjoying his work.
