Weekend reads and winding down...

Summer is winding down, which bums me out so very much. Unabridged Toddler is getting so big I can't stand it.

In addition to reading, I've applied to a 9 month writing class to help with the creation -- and completion -- of a novel, and I'm trying hard not to hope too much. Would be lovely to get to focus on my writing with such dedication and support. Cross your crossables for me, would you?

My weekend read is still Mary Sharratt's The Dark Lady's Mask (which, as you might be able to tell from this photo, is lacking a bookmark. Slippery thing escaped from the book when I pulled it out of my bag this morning!! Tres tragique!).

It's a great read, which is wonderful because I just finished listening to Imogen Robertson's fabulously fun The Paris Winter. (Nothing worse than being stuck after a good read with nothing good to follow it with!)

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. Oh, I hope you get in that writing class. I'd love to buy your novel one day!

  2. I have all my fingers and toes crossed you get into the writing class!! I second bermudaonion's sentiments: I'd love to purchase your book someday!

    I'm reading The Perfect Neighbors by Sarah Pekkanen and really enjoying it! Her characters are always so witty and fun, and then she bonks you on the head with surprising emotions and quite a bit of depth. I'm very much looking forward to some quiet time tomorrow to dig in further!

  3. My fingers are all the way crossed for you!!
