  4. At least your books are good - that's what counts! Love your pictures! Here is a really book dork question... in the picture of Callum he is standing in front of books (YAY!) I see the Twilight series - but what are the four colorful books that appear to be a set to the right (my right) of his head? The little fat books.

  7. No read Gudenkauf's These Things Hidden, it is brilliant. I too liked Indefensible and I look forward to your thoughts on The Tudor Secret. I Am the Chosen Kin/Harold the King was indeed brilliant! Have a wonderful week reader. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/02/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-26.html

  16. I have heard great things about "Unearthy" and "Exit the Actress"... I will come back for your giveaway and review of Exit the Actress.

    "Drink wine" is such a creative sign :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Whoever created that "wine" sign is a woman (I'm sure it's a woman!) after my own heart.

    Glad you liked Weight of Silence...I read it awhile ago, but it was so memorable. I just got her other book last week...These Things Hidden.

    Enjoy your reading and your wonderful family.

  21. Never forget that the number of books read per month is seriously over-rated but the quality is the most important part!!

    have a great time this weekend. Can't wait to see your gorgeous layouts!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just read Unearthly too and thought it was so very good! I read it in less than a day :) I don;'t even normally like paranormal so was surprised to get so into it!

    Thanks for your lovely get well message! You are awesome. Have a brilliant weekend! xo Nomes

  23. Nothing beats a great read, and time with friends for sure. Callum is growing up quite fast. I thought he was older than 12, but don't tell him I said that :) Have fun with Alaine at camp.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm getting to the end of I am the Chosen King now and I agree with you, it is indeed brilliant.
    I wonder what you thought of Dracula In Love. I started reading it but gave up at about page 80 or so. I couldn't stand Mina.
