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 :)

Once again not much reading or reviewing done but I had a great week and a fun weekend. A bit of scrapbooking, a night out in the city with Mike on Friday night and a card night with Alaine and hubby Ian on Saturday night. Alaine is leaving in 10 days for a 4 week holiday to UK & Scotland so a night of fun was called for ~ quite a few drinks and uproarious laughing ensued.

We have a another big weekend coming up, Friday night we are going to watch the Socceroos play Thailand. Saturday we are having a family brunch and early father's day celebration and Saturday night we are spending at Alaine and Ian's in a farewell party for Alaine & Kristianne ... phew.

    I have Becoming Marie Antoinette on my TBR pile and hopefully will get the chance to read it soon. I loved Rae Carson's The Girl of Fire and Thorns and hope you enjoy it too.

  7. I need to take a weekend to scrapbook! Sounds like you had fun. I read Forever last week, and was a bit disappointed.

  8. Sometimes the best weeks are those that include reading as a PART of everything else.

    Sounds like a good one!

    Even with homework, I did manage to meet last week's reading goals. Please come see what I finished and what I'm reading now.

  14. What a busy fun-filled week! I love the scrapbook page.

  15. Oh, I'm definitely looking forward to your review of Ultraviolet! I'll have mine up in about a week. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
