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!

What a fun week ahead. Tomorrow is my birthday and I'm hoping for a good progress report from my specialist, medication is working a treat so hopefully tests will show my heart is repairing ... that'll be the best birthday pressie :)

We are looking forward to camping at The Gorge, one of our favourite camping spots for the Australia Day long weekend. Lots of relaxing, reading, campfire cooking and keeping cool in the creek.

Book Stuff:

Be sure to come back on Thursday, I'll be participating in the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Book'd Out & Confessions from Romaholics and sharing some Love an Aussie Author love with lots of giveaways :)

  15. Went to check the Mistress to the crown book, now why a Tudor period costume when that was not the era?

  16. Happy birthday! Hope you have a fabulous day. I really enjoyed Pulling Down The Stars, I think Laidler is an author to watch.

  17. You had a fun-filled week, huh? I'm sure that all went well with the specialist..that would be a fitting Birthday gift, right!?
