It's Monday! What Are You Reading? + Update :)

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 :)

Wow what a week! Friday night Kristianne (front right) organised a Royal Wedding Viewing party and we had a ball watching William & Kate tie the knot, quite a few drinkies, lots of yummy English treats and some wicked fun games. You may recognise Alaine Queen of Happy Endings (2nd from left) and moi` (back right.)

Sunday was my youngest's 17th Birthday, Callum is such a sweetie, I can't believe how time has flown! We got some gorgeous family photos that I can't wait to scrapbook and Cal had a few mates stay over Sunday night (today is a public holiday.)

  2. I really enjoyed the Midwife's Confession. Have a wonderful week and enjoy your reading. My Monday:

  3. Happy Birthday to your son! I hope he had a fantastic day. Your Royal Wedding party looked fun too. I got up early to watch the festivities before I went to work on Friday morning.

    I hope you enjoy your books this week. I've heard differing opinions on Bumped but Die For Me is on my TBR list. I look forward to hearing what you think of it.

    Have a great week!

  4. It looks like you and your friends had a fun time! I've only been able to watch videos of the event.

    Your list looks good. I'd like to get A Storm Called Katrina. Where I live in Texas was close enough that many evacuees came here. Several stayed, we still have kids in school here that came orignally because they had to leave their homes.

  5. I've read lots of good things about Die For Me, happy reading :)
