Because I’m a super organized blogger, by the time you read this, I will be at the lake already, settled in for an extended long weekend of reading at my in-laws’.
I know, I’m surprised I made this happen too.
So you know what this means right? If I’m headed to the lake, then it’s time for a post about the books that I will be bringing with me to the lake.
I’m not a fan of packing in general. I’m always excited to go away but the preparation part I could do without. I will probably end up wearing the same hobo outfit the whole time I’m up there anyway. But appropriate reading material? That is no joke. Suddenly I’m a girl scout.
Right now I’m reading one of the following:
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. This is our book club book and I’ve been saving it for this long weekend. If it’s as good as I’ve been told it is, I’m sure it won’t be long before I read The Husband’s Secret.
The House at the End of Hope Street by Menna Van Praag. OK I know that I was not kind to The Dress Shop of Dreams but a friend who’s literary judgment I completely trust read this and loved it and told me to read it. So here we are. Second chances for everyone.
Anne of Windy Poplars by LM Montgomery. It’s April which means I get to read book four for the Green Gables Readalong hosted by Reeder Reads. I feel like Anne and the lake are going to pair REALLY well together.
A Measure of Light by Beth Powning. Look Naomi! It’s happening! I saw it at the library as a speed read this week and realized that I had a copy at home and the cover looked all sorts of good so I’m tucking it into my bags and hoping to be blown away.
When Everything Feels Like the Movies by Raziel Reid. I bought this after Canada Reads was over and then my sister asked me what I thought of it and I had to tell her that I hadn’t read it yet. She told me to hurry up and here we are.
The Ship of Brides by JoJo Moyes. I read Me Before You up at the lake and haven’t read any of Moyes’ other work. It seemed like the right time to reacquaint myself with some of her work this long weekend.
Looking at the pile, I’m not totally sure that it’s enough reading material and I say that in all honesty. Four of these books are barely 300 pages. Guess I better go and find one more!
What are you reading plans for the long weekend?
Whatever they are, I hope you have a lovely long weekend. See you back here next week peeps!
