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 was a busy week with Doctor and vet visits and of course preparing for Christmas. I'm still making Christmas cards and if I don't hurry up and get them sent, they won't arrive in time for Christmas. I also read one of the best YA books of the year (see below.) This week is all about cooking ... mmm mmm! Here's a sample of the Christmas cards I've made and I hope to share some pics of our Christmas cooking a bit later.

I posted reviews for:

NIGHT STAR by Alyson Noel ~ 3 stars

WHAT I THOUGHT I KNEW by Alice Eve Cohen ~ 4.5 stars


Finished last week:

WHAT I THOUGHT I KNEW by Alice Eve Cohen

DELIRIUM by Lauren Kate ~ brilliant, loved it, totally awesome!

THE WEIGHT OF SILENCE by Heather Gudenkauf (audiobook) ~ chapter 7
