Labor Day Weekend Reads

Hey y’all!  Can we talk about how exciting it is to have a three day weekend.  With all the stress of things going on in Texas (I wasn’t directly effected by the hurricane, praise the Lord), I welcome a calm three day weekend in.

For this weekend I will, of course, be reading and blogging.  I will get my August/Read-a-thin Wrap-up up this weekend and my September TBR. Maybe a review if I have time.

Anyway, I thought that I would tell y’all what I am planning on reading/finishing this weekend.  I have been working on most of these books for a couple of weeks because, honestly, I was feeling a little bit slumpy after the 7 in 7 Readathon.  I think I burned myself out, but I will definitely be completing these over the long weekend.

Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust – It took me until the 50% mark to really feel invested in these characters and for anything to happen.  I know that I’ll fly thorough the rest of this ARC, hopefully, and do a full review by it’s release date of September 5.

Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold by Iain Reading – This is a review book that I was sent and I really need to get the review completed soon.

Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips – I have to read this one because one of my  good friends is dying to discuss this book with me and I’m dying to read it.  This should be a quick read since it is less than 300 pages and an action-packed thriller.  From what I hear, it’s best to consume this book in one sitting.

Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward – I really want to read some Jesmyn Ward before I meet her in a couple of weeks for the release of her newest book, Sing, Unburied, Sing.  This is a story that takes place during Hurricane Katrina and it sounds so interesting.  I have heard nothing but fantastic things about her writing.

These are the main ones that I want to read/finish over the long and lazy weekend.  I have a middle grade ARC that I might try to squeeze in and the audiobook for Shelter by Jung Yun that I may listen too.

Mayson, my son, and I are currently listening to The Titan’s Curse (Book #3 in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians)  by Rick Riordan while we mill about town.

This seems pretty ambitious and I don’t expect to finish all of them but if I could make progress in some of them, I’ll be happy.

What are your plans for this long weekend? What are you reading?
