Weekend Reads

From David Yu Flickr

It’s a 3-day holiday weekend!

I hope everyone had a great week, and that you’re all looking forward to the long weekend. I know I am! There are a few things that I’m going to do, but you can be sure that I’ll be making time to read a few pages, or a few books. I’ve been battling something this week, so I’m just glad that the worst of whatever “that” was is over. Just to be sure, I’m going to see my therapist later today to get checked out.

The Peculiars Just Say Yes

  • Currently reading: The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry | Amulet Books

  1. Have a great holiday weekend and happy reading! Just Say Yes has such a cute cover. Wish I could be in SD this weekend, but soon!

  2. The Peculiars was one of my first ARCs! I really enjoyed the story, though it rambled briefly in a couple places. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think about it 🙂

    Hope you’re feeling better and that the rest of your day goes smoothly!
