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 :)

Brisbane has had a cold snap this week and Callum is in the middle of Year 12 exams so it's been pretty quiet on the home front. I've burrowed in, heater on, doing blog work, some card making and cooking. First card is for my Dad and his partner as they've moved into their new home about 4 hours from us and then a baby boy card.

  2. Ordinary Beauty sounds so good. I'm glad to hear you liked Between Here and Forever. I still haven't had a chance to read it. I usually like Elizabeth Scott's books (though not as much as Sarah Dessen). Have a great week and stay warm :)

  5. Blodeuedd, Brisbane has been down to 8 - 9 degrees celcius (46F)this last week which is cold for us lol but I know thats not cold compared to what you guys get in winter in Europe/US/UK.

    Winter in Toowoomba (my old home town) about 1 and half hours west of Brisbane is about -2 celcius (28.4F) and wind chill factor -15
