It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

I haven't participated in the Monday meme for a few weeks as I've been struggling to deal with our puppy's illness and life in general. If you want an update visit my post When You Fall Off The The End Of The Earth. Heartfelt thanks to everyone including little Bella in their prayers.

I have begun reading again and I also managed a review last week which was a bit of a milestone for me.

Click on the title to see my review of NEED by Carrie Jones ~ 4.5 stars definitely recommend it.


Completed in the last few weeks:

THE HEALERS by Thomas Heric - this was a real surprise, horrifying and intriguing at the same time!

BLOOD PROMISE by Richelle Mead - really enjoyable, looking forward to Spirit Bound

LEVIATHAN by Scott Westerfeld - good, havent read anything like it before.


This Week's Reading List:


NEVER LET YOU GO by Erin Healy ~ page 25


Reviews still to do:

FORGET-HER-NOTS by Amy Brecount White

THE MIDWIFE'S TALE by Gretchen Moran Laskas

and of course the 3 books finished above :-)

I promised yesterday to show a few more scrapbook layouts so here they are. The first one I've just recently finished, is Callum age 14 (2 years ago) and the next one I did at the srapbook camp Alaine and I went to a month ago. It's a scraplift from somewhere (sorry, can't remember.) The photos were taken on a family holiday to Fiji 5 years ago.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week ~ happy reading!!


  1. I sooo need to read Spirit Bound, probably will get to it towards the end of the summer.

    Leviathan has been on my radar for some time now. Glad to see that you liked the story...I am more curious now.

    ooo...I so cannot wait to know what you think of The Midwifes Tale. If you get bogged down and need to set aside reviews, and this one is set aside...please email me with your thoughts.

    I am sooo loving your scrapbook pages. Your boy is a handsome young man (boy...guy...etc...strange, I find, to use the word "man" when really they are boys...even if they are 20 :D )

    Take care Sheree!!

  2. I hope you enjoy THE CONFESSIONS OF CATHERINE DE MEDICI as much as I did.

    BTW, I love your scrapbook pages.

  3. I like the cover of THE CONFESSIONS OF CATHERINE DE MEDICI. I'm checking out the book now at Amazon! :)

  4. Fantastic week. I adored The Confessions of Catherine de Medici, I hope you do as well. I have been wanting to read Leviathan. Have a great week reading. My Monday:

  5. Leviathan is a book that has been on my list to read for sometime I'll have to check out what you think of it...I hope you enjoy your week!

  6. I have Leviathan out from the library at the moment, and I can't wait to get hold of the CW Gortner book!

  7. I kind of want to read Leviathan. Hope you enjoy your reads this week. :)

  8. Sorry about your sick puppy hope the puppy is getting better. The True of Catherine De Medici sounds very interesting and Westerfeld is a good writer and I have heard great things about Leviathan, still need to read this myself. Hope you have a great week.

  9. Can't wait to hear about The True Confessions of Catherine De Medici. Pages are great, love the one you finished of Callum!

  10. Both your upcoming books look wonderful! I hope you enjoy them!

  11. WOW - you ladies are fabulous scrapbookers. Those pages are phenomenal! I am SO sorry to hear about Bella...I will be praying for her and your family for her recovery. It warms my heart to see her surrounded by such love. I hate that you're going through a hard time right now, but remember we are all here for you! You're an amazing woman and I really hope things turn around for you.

    Have fun with the new Gortner book - it is so good and easy to lose yourself in!

    Take care :)

  12. Your books look great...hope you have a wonderful week, both reading and otherwise.

    Here's my Monday:

  13. Sorry to hear your sweet little puppy isn't well.

    I hope you're enjoying both books you have on the go right now. I've heard good things about Never Let You Go.

  14. Sorry to hear your puppy isn't well. I'm eyeing that book about C.Medici.

  15. More great scrap pages!! I'm loving seeing your pics.

    I've not only lost my blogging mojo, but my reading and reviewing mojo too, I did manage a couple of new reviews though... (short books, LOL)

    Dottie :)
