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, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time. Thanks Sheila!

Well same, same here last week until Saturday and then we had a much anticipated P!nk concert to go to. Seemed like only yesterday we booked tickets, not over 12 months ago, geez did that time fly. What an absolutely amazing, generous, freaky good performer she is ... my first P!nk concert and wow ... just WOW.

  1. Ohhhhhhhhhh I am so jealous!!!!!!!! I love P!NK!!!!!!!!!

  2. Ohhh Pink! I bet it was amazing! :) So I'm actually not familiar with any of the books you are reading this week but I have to say the cover of If I Should Die is stunning, no? It definitely got my attention!

  3. So cool that you got to see P!ink-I thought her latest album was absolutely fantastic!

  4. Wow - you were so close to the stage! It's been years since I have been to a stage concert, I think it was the original INXS the last time!

    Have a great reading week,

  5. I've had Legend on my must-read list for a while now. Sounds like my kind of book.

  6. So pleased you loved Pink, I would love to see her show as I've only ever heard amazing things about her performances.

    I've been wanting to read a Shana Abe book for awhile...I think they are lost at the bottom of my TBR pile so I'll have to dig one out.

    Congratulations to Julie...I hope you enjoy The Hunter.

  7. It seems like you had a great week with the Pink concert, that must have been amazing!

    Enjoy your reading week,
    kind regards,

  8. Looks like a good week :) And cool Pink!

  9. As usual, an awesome line up of books to borrow titles from! I saw Pink once when she was just starting out, as a young woman with her hair dyed pink, and she was opening for NSync (I accompanied my daughter to that one). You had a great week; hope your upcoming one is also.

  10. Anytime I see Pink on tv she seems so energetic - I imagine she puts on a fantastic concert. Have a great week!

  11. I just finished The Deepest Night and enjoyed it. I hope you do too. Come see what I did last week here. Happy reading this week!
