It's Monday & December Already! 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!

Wow who can believe it's December already. Glitter, tinsel, candles, and fairy lights ... here's one of my Christmas displays, such fun putting it all together. More photos next week!

  1. I LOVE the Christmas season and your decorations are too cute! Can't wait to see more :-)

    Tanya Patrice

  2. Congrats to the winners!! I love love love your decor!! That tree with the words on it is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I have enjoyed The husbands Secret on audio too! I am amazed how you already have decorations up for Christmas... I am sooo not there yet.

  4. What fun displays! All we have up so far are the Christmas tree and stockings by the fireplace. I'm not sure we'll do anything as cool as yours but I hope we put some more decorations up to really get in the holiday spirit!

  5. I read What Alice Forgot before I read The Husband's Secret and both are excellent. I am glad you liked Crash Into You. I haven't read Legend yet but I do hope the series ends well. So many of them fizzle out or disappoint.

    Nice Christmas decorations! I love the silver and blue color combination. That is usually what I decorate my tree with when I actually put it up :)

  6. The decorations are so pretty. I hope to get some decorating done this week. I started Pushing the Limits last night at 9:30 and did not put it down until I finished. Look forward to the next book in the series. Lookig forward to Sarah Jio's newest. Have a great week.

  7. You are very crafty, not only cards but awesome decorations. I have The Husband's Secret on audio to listen to eventually, pleased to know it is great in that format.

  8. Oh yay, I won a book! Sweet, thanks Kathryn!

    I realised yesterday that I do actually have my copy of The Husband's Secret here, which is great! Hopefully I can read it this year...

  9. What Alice Forgot is on my wishlist!

  10. Morning Glory is one I have my eye on!

    Book Dilettante

  11. Daughters of the Nile and Champion both look very intriguing. Enjoy reading this week!

    Check out what I'm reading this week.

  12. I have Morning Glory to read and review, too. It looks great.

    Hope you have a good week.

  13. I love your decor! Super pretty!

    Yay for the good news! Thanks!

    Happy reading!

  14. Your decorating is beautiful, the only that I've done is Gage's advent tree. My mom comes tomorrow so maybe I can make a dent in finding that Christmas spirit!
