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!

For those of you wondering what I thought of Beautiful Creatures ... enjoyable, but too much crammed in making it a little disjointed. Any one else seen it? What did you think?

*Squee* I'm just about jumping out of my skin with excitement for the 2013 Australian Romance Readers Convention this coming weekend. Kristan Higgins & Rachel Vincent are two of the US authors I'm dying to meet and Nalini Singh from NZ and of course our home grown talent, the gorgeous Anna Campbell, Helene Young, Kerri Arthur, Rachel Johns just to name a few. Should be a blast, I'm going with my friend Karen who guest reviews on my blog.  

Speaking of guest reviews Karen's review of If You Give A Rake A Ruby by Shana Galen will be posted tonight so please pop back

  1. I'm jealous you are going to ARRC, unfortunately I couldn't justify the travel costs to Brisbane - maybe next year!

    Have a great reading week,

  2. Have a great time at the convention! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  3. I like the mix of reads. Enjoy yourself at the convention.

  4. I just finished reading Lady of Ashes and LOVED it. Hope you do too!

  5. Enjoy the convention, sounds like a blast! The cover of Lady of Ashes is pretty amazing, I hope the inside is as good :) Have a great week of reading!

  6. Keen to read Heart Like Mine too. Have a great time at convention!

  7. I thought Beautiful Creatures was ok, but not the best. the convention sounds great, how exciting! xxx

  8. How wonderful that you're going to the convention and get to see/meet authors. I wouldn't know what to say, especially in person.

    books to movies - it's weird, sometimes the movie is better than the book and sometimes the book is way better than the movie. It must be hard to adapt a book straight to a movie, if you try to include everything it would be such a long movie. I haven't read the book yet - might not, might just go straight to movie. ;)

    have a fun reading week - and have fun at convention! Rabid Reader

  9. Oooh, sounds like a SQUEEworthy event...enjoy!

    And I'm drooling over Heart Like Mine, which I've preordered. Soon to arrive! I loved that author's other books.

    Thanks for visiting my blog...and have a great week.

  10. Ooh Lady of Ashes-I've been eying that ever since noticing your side picture of it. Can't wait to learn more in your review!

  11. Have a wonderful time at the convention it sounds amazing. I have been hearing a lot about Lady of Ashes. I need to add it to my ever growing To Read list.
    Happy Reading!

  12. So many great authors coming! I am so jealous :D

  13. I have Heart Like Mine to read too! I need to read faster!!!

    Have an awesome time at the convention!!

  14. I'll have to look into Lady of Ashes, I really like Christine Trent! Hope you enjoy it :)

  15. I love Kristin Hannah. Can't wait to see what you think of this one! Enjoy your event!

  16. I loved Somebody to Love. Have fun at the convention!

  17. OHH! You finished Water Witch? I got about 25%, put it down, and didn't have the urge to pick it up again. I NEED TO FIX THIS. I think my problem is that I'm reading not for the story, but the romance, and they really aren't romancey, happily-ever-after books so I keep finding myself enormously furstrated >__<

  18. I'm so glad that you and Karen had so much fun!!!! I need to just move to Australia!
