What Are You Reading On Monday - I'm Back (I think)




A weekly event hosted by J. Kaye’s Book Blog to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

I thought the picture above was very apt for my reading week. I spent a little longer in hospital than I thought owing to a few complications but two weeks in to 6/8 week recovery I can now keep my eyes open long enough to read and do a blog post LOL. Still feeling sore and sorry, and sleeping more than reading but I'm starting to feel a little brighter. It never ceases to amaze me, the love, care, support, emails and comments I receive from bloggy friends, thanks so much guys, you put a smile on my face :-)

Stay tuned for reviews on two books I committed to reviewing - Miracle in Sumatra & Life After 187. I finished both these before Christmas but due to festivities and then surgery I didn't have a chance to review immediately.

Oh and for those of you who asked, yes I got to see Avatar before I went in for surgery and it was beyond AWESOME!!

THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET by Debbie Macomber - 4.5 stars
I really enjoyed this one, after starting it well before Christmas I finally finished listening to it last week.

  11. Oh, yes, there's nothing better than reading when we're "under the weather."

    And a good Debbie Macomber certainly helps, too.

  20. The little bear napping with it's book is very sweet and you sound like you are coming back strongly now that your complications are behind you relaxing and reading are just the ticket for a full recovery. Glad to hear you got to see Avatar before surgery, that was a wonderful memory to take with you prior to the hospital stay..... You are going to enjoy the Anya Bast book, have the whole series as lots of fast adventurous action and very "hot" character interaction as well!!!!
    Christine Feehan you cannot go wrong, have most of her work in MMPB..

    Happy recovery and Happy Reading, welcome back!!
