As those of you who hang out on Facebook already know, I just emerged from a massive deadline crunch (more about that later). One of the things I am most looking forward to (aside from chopping off my split ends this afternoon so that I no longer look like a refugee from the more obscure sort of French fortress, complete with pet rat) is finally catching up on some leisure reading as I take this weekend off to veg, veg, veg. And read, read, read.
Here’s my current weekend line-up, in no particular order:
— Tasha Alexander, Tears of Pearl
— Julia Spencer-Fleming, To Darkness and to Death
— Meredith Duran, Written on Your Skin
— Susan Holloway Scott, The French Mistress: A Novel of the Duchess of Portsmouth
I’m also dying to read Michelle Moran’s Cleopatra’s Daughter, but that’s not officially out until Tuesday, so it may have to wait, depending on how precise my local booksellers are being about shelving.
Before I hit the bookstore, does anyone have any other suggestions for my reading binge?
Oh, and I’m also planning to post a mini-contest here on the News page on Monday, so stay tuned! Now that the writing frenzy has passed, I should be popping up here a lot more.
