It's Monday After Mother's Day! 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, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time. Thanks Sheila!

Happy Mothers Day to all my bloggy friends. I felt very blessed to have both my sons home, spending time together is the best gift ever and we had a lovely day playing board games, laughing and eating. Hope you also got to spend time with those you love. How cool is the fish eye and macro lense for my iPhone & the candle set was a beautiful surprise :)

 
This week will be crazy, I've got appointments, book reviews, planning & packing for scrapbook retreat this coming weekend and my Dad will be here for a few days.

  16. Happy Mother's Day - it sounds like you had a lovely weekend. My 5 year old woke me up early to scream happy mother's day and tell me her gift was to let me sleep in! ;)

    The 5th Wave looks really good - I'm excited for a different kind of apocalypse story! I hope you enjoy your busy week.

  22. sounds like a fun mother's day. Mind was busier than normal. I usually enjoy breakfast in bed, witha quiet day of reading...However, this one was a nice change. And you can't beat seeing your mom and stepdad who are visiting for another country! The dancing that came with it was the icing on the cake! :)

    Haven't heard of any of the books you've listed....(hello, Goodreads...)
