Another week, another Friday, another weekend to indulge in some leisure reading…. Since I so enjoyed hearing what everyone was reading last weekend (my To Be Purchased list has reached whole new proportions), I think this may need to become a weekly topic.
So here’s what’s on my list for this weekend:
1. Natural Born Charmer by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
It was almost exactly a year ago that my little sister gave me my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips book, Breathing Room. Is it too pathetic that I practically remember the exact date? Last summer was the Summer of SEP for me, slowly treating myself to one book at a time as I read my way through her backlist. I have a hard time picking a favorite, since every time I re-read one, I remember quite how much I like that particular one. Until I re-read the next one. Right now, I’d say it’s a toss up between Breathing Room and Nobody’s Baby But Mine. Or maybe Dream A Little Dream. Anyway, I was ridiculously happy to see that her latest is out– even though once I finish it, it will be back to re-reads!
2. The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley.
Maybe it’s several people mentioning The Blue Castle recently that’s given me blue on the brain. Or maybe it’s that there’s something vaguely India-like about McKinley’s imaginary kingdom of Damar and I’m about to start Book VI (set in India) next week. So it practically counts as research, right?
3. The manuscript of The Temptation of the Night Jasmine by me.
My last read through before turning in my final revisions for Book V! At least, I really hope they’re the final revisions. Sometimes, final has a way of being not so final. Especially when revisions are involved.
What’s on your list for this weekend?
