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 :)

Last week was spent week running around like a chook with it's head cut off all while coughing up a lung, so back to the Doctors this week.

Had a lovely weekend; Friday night was a dear friend's 70th birthday back in Toowoomba and Saturday night was a girl's night out with mums & friends from Cal's old soccer team; great to catch up and enjoy a scrumptious Chinese banquet.

VIOLENT EXPOSURE by Katherine Howell ~ 5 stars and a favourite read!
