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 :)

What an annoying week with BLOGGER. I know many people have had their posts and comments from 12th May restored but sadly I haven't. Click on the pic if you want to see my Blogger Blooper post.

However, tonight I will repost the  "Interview and Giveaway with Aris Whittier" (author of Across Eternity) so please if you have commented on this one previously you will have to re-comment as nothing of this post has been restored by Blogger!

Update ~ win ACROSS ETERNITY by Aris Whittier ~ enter here 

I posted review for: (and all the comments were deleted; thanks again Blogger!)

DIE FOR ME by Amy Plum ~ 4.5 stars ~ you don't want to miss this one, check out my review on this awesome read!

Win an eBook copy of Happy Birthday To Me by Brian Rowe ~ enter here.


In other news, we had a fun time at the 2011 RSPCA Million Paws Walk ~ an annual doggie walk that raises much needed funds for the RSPCA.

I don't think I'll get much reading done this week as Alaine and I are once again getting ready for a weekend of fun and laughs (and hopefully creativity) at the Daisy Chain Scrapbook Retreat. Fingers crossed I get lots of scrapping done and have pics to show next week.


Finished Last Week:

MERCY by Rebecca Lim - 5 stars ~ awesome YA from Aussie author, loved it!


This Week's Reading List:

HERE, HOME, HOPE by Kaira Rouda

BUMPED by Megan McCafferty ~ page 25


Reviews to post:

THE COFFEEHOLIC & THE CAFE by Elizabeth Martin (review scheduled this week)



  1. Glad to see you enjoyed reading Mercy! I will be starting on it this week. :)

  2. Popular books, enjoy!

  3. I despised the ending of Bumped.

  4. Blogger was acting weird before it went kablooey. This week I finished up the manga I had on hand. I typically read an issue over my morning cup of coffee. Come see what I'm reading this week.

  5. I did a charity dog event today as well! I loved mine, glad to hear yours was good too :)

    I've got Bumped on my list, I want to read it soon!

    Please feel free to stop by my Monday here.

  6. What a mess Blogger was - I felt sorry for all of you.... I tried commenting on posts and I couldn't and I heard some of your posts were taken down and of course loss of comments.... gah....

    The puppy walk looks wonderful - I have always wanted to do that!

    I have to go see your blogger blooper post.... love that kind of stuff :)

    Hope this week is awesome for you!

  7. Your shooting picture is the best, lol, it wasn't a laughing matter for sure though.

    My post

  8. I look forward to your review of Here, Home, Hope and Enjoy your girls retreat. Have an excellent week. My Monday:

  9. Oh, a scrapbook retreat! That sounds really nice! Have lots of fun there.

    In the meantime, you seem to have some good books lined up - if you get round to them... happy reading!

  10. What a fun puppy walk! How neat! Love the pictures. :o)

    So, yes, you've reminded me I really really need to crack open both my copies of Mercy & Die For Me, since I have them both. Must do this soon!

    Hope you have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop my to see what I've been reading at There's A Book! :)

  11. Love the photos of the walk you went on. Hope you are going to scrap them!

  12. The Doggie Walk looked like a great time. Sorry to hear you lost so much thanks to the Blogger snafu. Almost makes you want to switch to Wordpress. Glad you like Mercy, I just ordered the next book in this series and cannot wait to read it. Have a great week.

  13. I have DIE FOR ME but haven't read it yet. Which cover do you like more?

    I also really want to read BUMPED but couldn't manage to score that ARC. I think it's out now, though??

    Well-Read Reviews

  14. Enjoy your reading week


  15. Thankfully my posts were restored but it was a frustrating couple of days.

    Enjoy your week!!


  16. Cool contest. I need to read Mercy, it's in my TBR pile. I have heard such great things about Bumped, I hope you like it! Love the cover for Here, Home, Hope. It's pretty.

    Have a great week and enjoy all your books!

  17. Grrr I am so upset with blogger, nothing of mine ever came back

  18. Day with dogs is a great day spent!!!

    Looks like some great reviews coming up...I'm ready!

  19. I had problems with Blogger deleting one of my reviews too. I did find an older version in draft form (and it duplicated some of my other draft reviews too) so I was able to repost but I did lose a comment.

    I enjoyed your review of Die For Me. I wasn't going to read this book but after seeing all these positive blog reviews and learning more about the book, I've decided to give the book a chance.

    I am curious to see what you will think of Bumped. On the surface it sounds similar to Wither but I don't know if I'd like it. I look forward to your review. I hope you are having an excellent week!
