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 :)

A wonderful weekend spent with scrapbooking friends at the Daisy Chain Scrapbook Retreat. I always enjoy the time away to create and relax, free from the responsiblities of home. I completed 7 layouts and I'm halfway thru number 8, which is not quite a record for me but the most I've done at camp in years lol. Will share more layout photos next week.

  1. I finished ten books this week which actually surprises me because I hardly did any reading during my usual fun reading time. Come see what I finished.

  2. Between Here and Forever looks interesting. I have the e-Galley from GalleyGrab but don't think I will have time to read it before it expires.

    I am going to try to take part in Armchair BEA this year but it is going to be a busy week for me. I am going away for the long weekend (Memorial Day) so I've got packing, laundry, and cleaning to do (all the stuff I didn't get done this past weekend because I was devouring The Help). I hope you have a fantastic week and enjoy your reading.

  3. I hope you enjoy Radiance, I had a hard time with it. I like YA but it was a little *too* young :/ Love those scrapbook pictures!

    Please feel free to stop by my Monday :)

  14. Your scraps are always so beautiful! Do you put them in an album or hang them up in your house? Just curious.
    I am steadily reading and cleaning up some back log as far as reviews go. You know how that never ending saga goes :) Have a great week pumpkin!
