When I walked into the house, Crossed by Allie Condie was on the kitchen island waiting for me.

My kids, both book lovers, were calling dibs before I could even rip the plastic wrap from it. Before I could enjoy the cover.

I smoothly and very mom-like, swatted away their grubby, little book-stealing hands, ran from the room and hid it from them until I can start reading.

I plan on reading it this weekend. Maybe, I'll start it tonight and read it straight through the night until finished. It's been a very long time since I've done that.

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. Ooh, nice.

    I"m reading OPEN MINDS by Susan Kaye Quinn. And then i can't wait to start on Daughter of Smoke and Bone. (library find)

  2. Ooh. Loved Matched. :)

    I'm trying to finish MARCH by Geraldine Brooks for bookclub on Tuesday. Then, it's MOONGLASS by Jessi Kirby. Oh, and SENT by Margaret Haddix.

    And lots more on my list...
