It's 2012! 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 :)

Happy New Year bloggy friends!! I'm looking forward to another fun year of books, books and more books! Not to mention nurturing friendships, book tours, author interviews, giveaways, scrapbooking and photo taking (I'm participating in 365 - Documenting the Everyday.)

This week I'll be playing catch up with reviews for books read in the last 2 weeks of December and I also have to pick some challenges for 2012. Uggh I can't believe I'm already behind ... hmm actually I can LOL.

Thought I'd share a couple of extra Christmas/holiday photos but you can see more here. To see my favourite reads of 2011 check out this post – 2011 The Year That Was.
