weekend plans

I don't know about everyone else, but I am so ready for this holiday weekend! We have company in town, but I am going to finish up as much work as possible today and spend some much-needed time relaxing. For one thing, I'll be finishing this:

So far I like it; Jennifer Weiner does not disappoint. Maybe it's because she's close to my age, but during flashbacks in Best Friends Forever, she captures little pieces of childhood in the 80s that completely resounded with me. I have a few issues with one character, but I'm going to wait until I finish it to make my final judgement.

When I'm finished with that, I'm moving on to this:

It's been quite a long time since I've read a Pat Conroy book, but I'm anxious to check it out. I'm sure it will have me reminiscing about living in the Lowcountry...I love Tucson, but I sure do miss the beaches and fresh seafood from our days in Savannah. But not the bugs. I most definitely do not miss the bugs.

What have you read lately?
