It’s Friday night and I have so much reading planned this weekend!
The #24in48 Readathon was cancelled, but I was smart and didn’t cancel my PTO request for this weekend, so I have Saturday through Monday off work. I plan to use that time to read, read, read.
I am part of a private online book group that has a Slack account, and a group of us are going to have our own little readathon this weekend. It’s a pretty loose one – some folks started today, others are doing just the weekend, still more are incorporating Monday in as well. The objective is just to read and relax as much as you want, which is my main objective in life anyway.
I have a stack of books and a cupboard of snacks all set to go (and 6 Red Bulls, so I’m REALLY ready to go).
I want to read a pretty big chunk of The Burning White by Brent Weeks, which is book 5 in the Lightbringer series. It’s…enormous, so I highly doubt I will read the whole thing this weekend (it’s over 900 pages). I also have A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kimmerer to read, which is a book that I have been looking forward to for a while now.
I might even try to finally finish Fate of the Fallen! You’re right, probably not.
I have several romances I could read as well. I have a copy of the new Rebekah Weatherspoon, A Cowboy to Remember, waiting for me on my kindle. I also could dip into A Fake Girlfriend for Chinese New Year by Jackie Lau – I absolutely love her holiday romances, and I love that she has romances for all kinds of holidays, not just Christmas.
If I go anywhere this weekend, or decide not to be a lazy daisy, I will be listening to the audiobook of Boneshaker by Cherie Priest. I just started it today and I am enjoying it so far. There are 6 books in that series (how do I keep choosing these longer series to start) so I will be kept busy for a little while with those.
If I get time, I want to make some progress on the Vorkosigan saga. I started Diplomatic Immunity back in November and I want to finish it sometime soon. My library does not have it on audio, so I am reading it in print, then I can finish the rest of the series on audio. I have better luck finishing things that are available on audio.
I can’t think of anything else I added to my stack. I’ll let you guys know how I did this weekend sometime next week!
Let me know if the comments what you plan to read this weekend, and if you are going to be having a mini-readathon yourselves.
