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!
A pretty good week for reading, reviewing and blog visiting but I need to get the review backlog under control. Wish me luck :)
It's Callum's birthday this week (he's my youngest) ... 20 years old, where has the time gone? For that matter, a minute ago it was the start of April lol. With everyone's work and social schedules I'm hoping a family dinner will eventuate.
Brisbane city ... after a number of failed attempts to get some nice photos of our city at night I had a light bulb moment with camera settings and was so happy with how this one turned out.

This Week's Reading List:

THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES by Sue Monk Kidd (audiobook) ~ Jenna Lamia is a favourite narrator
ECHO IN THE BONE by Diana Gabaldon ~ I honestly can't remember whether this one's a re-read, the first chapters are familiar but maybe I didn't finish it?
SIX YEARS by Harlan Coben (audiobook) ~ good audio, not my favourite Coben
WHILE WE WERE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY by Wendy Wax (audiobook) ~ loved the story and the narration.
KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL by Anthony Bourdain (audiobook) ~ rude, crude, drugs, sex, depravity, oh and food, not for the faint-hearted but hilarious.
THE MIDWIFE: A MEMOIR OF BIRTH, JOY AND HARD TIMES by Sandra Worth ~ well worth the read even if you've watched the TV series Call the Midwife.
