What Are You Reading On Monday

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.

First to the big news, Alaine's daughter gave birth to a darlin boy in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Congrats and love to Kylie & her husband but also to Grandma Alaine and Aunty Annie... you're family is truly blessed xx

I only read 2 books this week but they were both great. Beautiful Creatures was seriously awesome, and I hope to share the review with you this week. So that means I read 7 books in January, not bad considering I missed the first 2 weeks of January while recovering from surgery.
