It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. Thanks Sheila :)

Can't believe how quickly the weeks are flying, Last week Cal's team had another soccer win, that's 3 from 3, we saw Limitless at the movies and I scraplifted a layout of our sweet little Bella (below) amongst other mundane things. This week will be a busy, emotional week, please say a prayer for my best friend Alaine who is going in for major surgery on Wednesday.

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

Also check out Priya Parmar's guest post and giveaway of  EXIT THE ACTRESS.

THE FIDDLER'S GUN by A. S. Peterson ~ 5 stars (click on title to see review - DO IT, this one is so worth it!)

  1. I read Obscure Destinies by Willa Cather last week and am now reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

  2. Love you and appreciate all the help you are giving me this week xoxo

    Can't wait to read These Things Hidden. I downloaded it to my Kindle yesterday and thought I just read the first page and ended up reading 3% so I had to stop so I could finish Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult. I'll have that finished today and then can get back to These Things Hidden.

    See you tomorrow!

  3. I forgot to tell you that I love the page of Bella, so pretty!

  4. Alaine will be on my prayer list for sure!!!

    Looks like you have some great books for the week and Yay!! You're going to read Heart with JOy!!!

  5. Aw sorry to hear that about Alaine. Will keep the both of you in my thoughts.

    I hope your books provide a much needed escape this week and take care. {{hugs}}

  6. Prayers for Alaine!
    I went over to check out your review of Fiddler's Gun and it sounds great! All your new books are new to me books. Hope they are enjoyable. Happy reading.

  7. These Things Hidden - waiting for that one!

  8. The Things Hidden sounds really good. You can find my list here:

    Have a good Monday!

  9. I have two new projects coming up. My reading load will be out of control next month. Come see what I read.

  10. I am having trouble keeping up with commenting on the blog posts of prolific bloggers such as yourself! I do see all your posts just no time to get here every day I am afraid.

    Have you really read three books in the last week I just do not know how some of you manage to juggle everything!

    I like the sound of These Hidden Things.
