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 only finished one book last week but it was another chunkster (at almost 500 pages) and it is school holidays so with having family visit I haven't had as much 'chill out' time as I thought I would. But I do have reviews scheduled this week and I'm hoping for a bit more reading time. My reading list looks optimistic, especially when most weeks I've only read one book but you never know this could be the week LOL. I'd be really excited to get through 2 or 3.  I also scrapped a layout of myself on my 40th birthday (2 years ago.) Something a bit different as I don't often scrap photos of just myself, I'm normally the one on the other end of the camera (it's an iggydodie scraplift.)


Completed last week:

SPIRIT BOUND by Richelle Mead - fantastic!


This Week's Reading List:

CAPTIVATE by Carrie Jones ~ page 135

SAND IN MY EYES by Christine Lemmon (book tour)

SHADOWLAND by Alyson Noel (audiobook)

THE HEALERS by Thomas Heric

LEVIATHAN by Scott Westerfeld

  1. Looking forward to the review. Heard a lot about the Vampire Academy books but never given them a read. Not yet anyway.

  2. ^ Chinese comments? :D

    Enjoy your reads this week, especially Shadowland. :)

  3. Reading a chunkster in a week is huge. Don't be so hard on yourself. LOL...ENjoy your week whatever the reading fairy allows. :)

  4. Spirit Bound sounds good! I like the 40th picture - very cool! I am not sure what an iggiedodie scraplift is :)

    Have a fantastic reading week! :D

  5. Looks like I better get moving so I can read Spirit Bound soon!!! I love that series too. Looking forward to your reviews on Captivate & Shadowland - both are on my wishlist :)

    Love your pic! I'm usually the picture taker too, LOL

  6. I love finishing the large books-especially when they are excellant-have a good week of reading-I hope to get some in.

  7. I still need to read Captivate.. I don't know why i haven't yet. Enjoy your upcoming books!

  8. As always, LOVE your layout!! Leviathan is one that I really really want to read, and I have Spirit Bound on my to-buy list for my daughter (and then, of course, when SHE'S done with it, I get to read it ... which is sort of a perk when you have other book lovers in the family!)

    Julie @ Knitting and Sundries (who also only finished ONE book this week!!)

    My Monday:

  9. Love the layout, it looks lovely.! Hope you get some reading done but withthe amount of family visiting you this week I don't think it's looking good!
