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. Thanks Sheila.

Last week consisted of the usual 'mum' stuff but I also read, scrapbooked, and did a book review ... successful week for me! The layout I scrapped below is photo of myself, Annie & Alaine at Richelle Mead's book tour in September 2009.
I seem to be starting this week with a tummy bug *ughh*, hope it doesn't hang around too long as I have things to do!

  1. I have The Sky is Everywhere on my TBR list - the cover is pretty for it!

    I picked up Shiver this week and can't wait to get my hands on Linger so I can read them both hehe

    Here is my Monday!

  2. Let's see... I am reading three books right now:

    The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
    Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (audiobook)
    Raising Kane by Lorelei James (Kindle)

    Happy reading everyone!!

  3. You've indeed read couple of fantastic book there! I so want to read The Sky is Everywhere myself and am hoping I'll get a copy soon.

    I've been busy reading The Queen's Thief in the past week and I think that series is the best I've read this year. If you haven't read that one, I think you should give it a shot. Absolutely fantabulous!

  4. OK that would explain things, I mean the tummy bug. Kylie had it yesterday too and she said it was horrible, she was travelling back from NSW. Have you got Linger? How did you get it? I'm hoping it comes out on audio soon because I loved the audio of Shiver. Hope you feel better very soon!

  5. Wow, you have Linger! I'm looking forward to read Shiver first. :)

  6. I enjoyed your review of Never Let You Go. I might like that one too. It sounds really good. I've liked all of Maggie Stiefvater's books so far and I look forward to reading Linger as well.

    I hope you get well soon, Sheree and have a great week!

  7. Linger has just come out, and I need it! Cannot wait to read it. :)

    The Shy is Everywhere...favorite for 2010...that is saying a lot. Cannot wait to read your review.

    I am behind on posting reviews, have several written but need cleaning up. I just don't feel like it, right now. I think I may post one this coming week.

    Take care Sheree...hope you don't have the bug...not fun to be sick especially when life demands action. You'll be in my thoughts.

  8. So excited to read Linger and Leviathan and I'm excited to see your review of Forget-Her-Nots; personally I found it a bit disappointing but there were bright spots.

  9. Thanks for sharing a great scrap page with us.. Are the flowers on the left Petaloo..

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Westerfeld...


  10. Well, I definitely hope the tummy bug takes a hike for you and you have a great week this week. Your book selection looks up to the task, I mean you can't go wrong with Linger, but make sure to kick the tummy problem right out the door! :o)

    Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a chance, stop by: Monday Reading's at There's A Book

  19. Linger was such a great, great read. One of my fave of the year. Gotta love when a book lives up to its hype.

  20. Good week - there are a lot of good books there. I really need to get started on Alyson Noel's series.

    I enjoyed your review of Never Let You Go - I enjoyed it as well.

    Thanks for the heads up on Kelley Armstrong's YA trilogy and the need to have the second in hand right after finishing the first. I'm off to find The Awakening now.
