RhiReading Feature: Weekend Reading [08/20-08/22]


Ahhhhh, the weekend is here! Don't know about you dear readers but I am pleasantly surprised to see sun and high temps for this weekend. Time for my last pedicure of the flipflop season. School 'round these parts starts up next week and I am both bummed and excited. Bummed because the days of juggling homework, early mornings of searching for socks, keys, backpacks and the like, and PTA functions are back. Excited because my first born is going to be a little less in my hair again, which could mean more reading time. ;)

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the relationships between siblings. Maybe part of that has to do with finally getting through Lover Avenged. I loved both Bella and Rehv from the start. Like Rehv I was always the protective older sibling even when I was doing dumb stuff I wouldn't want my brother (that's us in the photo above) to do. When my parents tossed my little bro out when he was barely 17 I took him in until our real dad could arrange for him to come live with him. I beat up bullies in elementary school. And woe be to his fiance if she ever treats him wrong. Yep, I definitely can relate to a lot of my favorite heros and heroines who play older sibling roles.

Sibs like wise, protective Niko from Rob Thurman's Cal Leandros series or Eugenie trying to sort things out with Jasmine in the Dark Swan series. While I enjoy non-sibling stuff too I find these ones tend to resonate with me a lot more, finding their way to my keeper shelf. What about you guys? Any favorite sibling duos or families on your keeper shelves?

This weekend I'm working on Elphame's Choice by P.C. Cast—which continues that sibling thing quite nicely—and Touch of Seduction by Rhyannon Byrd. Both Amazon Vine books I've wanted to get finished for a while but find myself not getting very into. :( But that's okay, it happens sometimes. I don't think either isn't a good read, I'm just not all that into them right now. I did, however, score a copy of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer in this month's newsletter (along with Julie Kagawa's The Iron Daughter *squee*) so I am super-stoked to get that read.

Anywho... may you all have a fantabulous weekend filled with juicy good books and other destressing activities!
