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 :)

Once again not much accomplished in the reading department but I did hold a massive garage sale with my dad which took a lot of time and effort but it was worth the pain. And Alaine and I are holding a scrapbooking sale this coming saturday as we are both drowning in supplies. I have to say I'll be glad when the week is over and I can get back to a 'normal' routine!

Wanted to share this layout I scrapped a little while ago of myself with Bella. I'm thrilled with how it turned out.

Now on to books:

  17. I'd say start on that Mockingjay one! :D

  18. I received for review Expiation by Greg Messel from Author Solutions.

  19. Your layout is lovely.

    I've gone right off Phillipa Gregory and I think its a pity she's portrayed such a biased and unbalanced picture of Margaret Beaufort.

    Have a great reading week!

  20. Garage sales can be a pain but sometimes they are so worth it. Now are you going to purchase new scrapping supplies with the money you make after selling some of your stuff? I probably woul :)

    I am currently reading The Forever Queen and liking it. The Prophecy of the Sisters sounded quite good. Happy reading and enjoy your week sweetie!

    Cute scrap with you and Bella :)

  21. It took me so long to write a review of Mockingjay - first I had to figure out what I thought of it!

    I hope you enjoy your books this week!

  22. What a lovely scrapbook page! I don't usually particularly like brown, but I love the colors you used there.

  23. You and Bella are adorable!
