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.

A good week. I read 2 fantastic YA novels last week and thoroughly recommend both of them. Alaine and I had another scrapping day and we also saw Angelina Jolie's new movie Salt in Gold Class. At the moment Callum's Premier Youth soccer team are sitting 5th on the table, they won their game yesterday but must win the next two to make it to semi-finals. So, a big week of soccer this week and hopefully more reading, reviewing & scrapping :-)

  1. Oh I wanted to see Salt and I waited to long and missed it at the theater. Was it awesome?

    You had a good reading week!

  2. Sheila, I enjoyed Salt, wasn't best movie ever but a good action movie with twists. Angelina Jolie is a kick-ass chick :-)

  3. I completely agree with the scoring of Hidden Wives. Have a wonderful week reading. My Monday:

  4. Still Missing looks great, I hope you enjoy it! :)

    I love your scrap page too, you're so talented!

  5. I'm waiting patiently for Still Missing which I have on hold at the library.

    Have a great reading week!

  6. Thanks for linking my Monday post again. I finished listening to When the Wind Blows today while washing and scrapping and then I started The Search, which is a Nora Roberts romantic suspense and then I'll listen to The Chosen One which I did find. I might actually get through 3 audio books this week but we'll see how it goes. Have a great reading week!

  7. Totally with you on "Hidden Wives." It is a "must read."

  8. I think my comment got lost and did not got posted.
    I really like your scrapbook templat... lovely!
    I hope you have lovely time reading :) Great books :)

  9. I really want to read Stolen. I'll be looking out for your review of that one :)

  10. I'm partway through Stolen right now, good to see you gave it 4.5 stars. Also never heard of Roeing Oaks before but the premise sounds interesting so I'm adding it to my wishlist!

  11. I added Still Missing to my WL last week, the cover has got me!


  12. Glad to hear you enjoyed your books last week - I've heard lots of good things about both of them.

  13. I am so loving your mix of books and scrapbook pages...a few of my favorite things for sure!!!

  15. I got a lot of reading done but this week I have to hit the text books. Here's what I'm reading this week.

  16. I also missed Salt. I just adore Jolie. Good luck with those two soccer games. Good winning thoughts your way.
    Enjoy your week Sweetie :)
