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 huge week which culminated in a successful garage sale, Broke & Bookish Secret Santa posted, cards for Holiday Card Exchange posted, the Christmas tree finally decorated, lots of blog posting but no reading ... can't win them all :)

and I've made a few cards for family and friends but still have more to do!

Wednesday is my turn on the 2011 Virtual Advent Tour so come by for some of my family's favourite Christmas recipes, photos and of course Aussie traditions.

  4. I am going to keep my eye open for your Virtual Advent Tour post. Sounds fun.

    Queen Herafter is a fabulous book. While it did not make it to my top 10 books read in 2010 - it was a close. Whowever wins this book will be gaining a good read.

    Ha...looks like your reading has slow done,perhaps?? It has definitly for me.

    Sister Pact looks fun. Will be interested in your thoughts.

    Hope you have a great week, Sheree.

  5. Oh, I'm reading Demon Lover at the moment--can't wait to see your thoughts :)

  6. Your not really interested in doing reviews for the Soul series are you??? :-)

    Love your card, my fav colour is purple.

  7. Oh--- I love the mouse and book picture. Could I borrow it (with credit)?
    I have books on the backlist for reviews too... and I really liked them but just didn't get them done when I should have.
    I'll watch for you tour post. Have a great week.
