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 :)

Well in stark contrast to my post last week spouting grand plans to "catch up" the only thing I managed to catch up on was birthday mayhem. What a fun week though! Alaine and I in first photo on her birthday, 2nd photo was taken yesterday on Anthony's birthday... the boys and I and Ant's good mate who is now part of our family (he's the really tall one) and last photo is the yummy cocktail I had on the weekend away with my sister for her 40th!

I did post a review and I read a bit more of The Red Queen so at least I'm no further behind LOL.

Speaking of reviews check out my review of DESTINED FOR AN EARLY GRAVE by Jeaniene Frost ... this series is AWESOME, I can't squeeeee enough about it.

  6. Hi Teddyree,

    Long time no comment!

    Love the pics and I hope you enjoy your reading week!

    Great review of "Destined for an Early Grave"!

  7. Hi Teddyree, this is my first time on your blog and still I like your family pictures! It's nice when people add something personal - I've been thinking of doing that, but I don't know in what format yet.

    Have a good week reading and thanks for visiting my blog!

  8. Very Handsome family. You have some great books lined up this week. I have been trying to get to Prophecy of the Sisters for a while. Hope you enjoy all your reads!

  9. Oh, love the pix...handsome sons and yummy-looking cocktail.

    Sounds like a fun week.

    Your books look interesting...hope you enjoy them.

    Here's my Monday:

  10. Great photos - and yummy drink! I just finally got Mockingjay. Can't wait to read it!

  11. Yummy cocktail! I had a slow reading week, too. It must happen to the best of us :D

    Here's my Monday post. Have a great week!

  12. I've been hearing about Speak. I am really tempted to pick it up. Also, Girl Stolen and Prophecy of the Sisters look really good! Good picks! Have a great week! BTW_ I love the drink, yummm!

  13. Great pictures! Looks like a fun week. :) You have a lot of heavy reads lined up, but I've read a lot of them and they're great. Enjoy!

  14. It sounds like you all had a terrific week! Happy (belated) birthday to your sister.

  15. The Red sister's love this series. I'm currently reading a memoir called Voices of the Heart by Linda Lambert Pestana. It's a wonderful, compelling, and inspiring story about the author's life. Voices of the Heart is a personal portrayal but the journey is universal. I'm very inspired!

  16. It looks as if you had a great week! Love the pictures and that cocktail looks YUMMY! I'm looking forward to your review of the Scarlet Lion! Happy reading

    My Monday is here:

  17. I would stop everything for that drink too!!!

    Have a great week and enjoy yourself!

  18. Great photos and a good stack of books you have this week.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and sharing a part of you. You touched me with your comment.

    Have a wonderful week.

  19. Love the photos...all of them! Very lovely. Great to see you and Alaine. I also enjoy seeing photos of your boys. They are good looking kids!

    How old is Anthony now? I am loosing track.

    Prophecy of the Sisters looks interesting. How are you liking it so far? What do you think of the narrator?

    I hope you, Sheree, have a great week!

  20. When I first looked at that photo of you and the boys I didn't realize it was you at first. I thought it was some young friend of your son's!
    Lovely Photo of you and Alaine and hope you too had fun :)
