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 busy week, not so much on the reading side of things :( but a huge soccer week that finished on a high note with Brisbane Roar winning the Grand Final in our home town Suncorp stadium. 50,000 crowd and a nail biter of a game, extra time, a 2 all draw and a penalty shoot-out!

my sister, my niece and myself before the game

Callum and I after the game

the save that won the game!

Callum's soccer team also won their second game of the season and Cal scored so he was a happy lad. We celebrated with a burger at Grill'd and the movie I Am Number Four (which we both loved.) I thought it was an excellent adaptation from the book. You can check out my review here.


Don't forget the competition is still running for a copy of THE TUDOR SECRET by C W Gortner.

  2. I was going to suggest that you had a mishap with the self tanning! It was a VERY exciting end to the game, even for a neutral supporter

    Enjoy your books!
