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. I love this meme ... thanks Sheila!

Callum and I made it to Breaking Dawn 2 before he left, *squee* loved it!! Kind of sad that it's all over though. At least we have The Hobbit and Life Of Pi to look forward to :)

So for all my bloggy friends asking how Cal's doing ... awesome. He left Brisbane in 33 degrees (91.4 farhenheit) heat and arrived in Banff to a chilly -11 (12.2) and lots of snow. He's really taken to skiing and is having a ball!

  2. I'm glad your son is enjoying his trip to Canada. Also glad to hear that you liked Breaking Dawn 2 and were able to see it with him. I'm looking forward to watching The Hobbit as well. I just finished rereading it.

    I'm hoping to read Scent of Magic in the next couple of weeks. I loved Touch of Power and hope the sequel will live up to book one.

    Have a great week!

  15. Always great to leave the heat for a blast of cold. =)

    Maria V. Snyder is an author I've meant to try for years. I've heard great things (especially about her Study series), but it just hasn't happened.

    Happy Reading!

  17. I am so sad that the Twilight trilogy is gone now too... I wish they would make the Knife Of Never Letting Go into a movie and then we would have another awesome trilogy :)
