Weekend reads and, I don't know, shortbread?

I'm starting a bunch of books this weekend because why not?

Among them are Amberlough, a gay spy thriller that's allegedly "Le Carre meets Cabaret" (uhm, yum!); and two Lovecraftian-inspired novels, The Night Ocean, about a man obsessed with Lovecraft; and Winter Tide, a novel that takes place in the world of monsters Lovecraft imagined. I'm super excited about all three and have been for a while.

(I'm also showing off the utterly deeeevine raisin-and-carraway seed shortbread my wife made in honor of St. Patrick's Day.)

Otherwise, stuff has been happening, and also, not much. Current political climate sucks, and I'm divided over liking the snow storm(s) and kind of wanting spring here.

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. That shortbread looks yummy! We are so over the current administration we could scream - as a matter of fact, my husband often does. Happy reading!

  2. I saw the pic of that shortbread, and it looks life-changing. I'm also sitting in my class waiting on ribs to arrive, so I'm a bit hungry. Sigh.

  3. Happy belated St. Patrick's Day! I am thinking of you and your family often in this shitty-ass political climate. <3

    Le Carre plus Cabaret sounds fabulous so don't forget to keep us posted once you've finished it!
