It's Monday! What Are You Reading and I'm a Nonna :)

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! 

Christine and Anthony's precious baby girl, Mia arrived Saturday 28th June, 7lb 5oz. *Squeeee* I'm a Nonna and I'm totally smitten with my little grandaughter. Words are inadequate to express how blessed I feel to have witnessed her birth. Christine was amazing, Anthony and Christine were an amazing team, my heart is full.

Reviews & Posts: (click on title)

NO RIVER TOO WIDE by Emilie Richards (Goddesses Anonymous #3) ~ loved it, fantastic series


Finished last week:

nothing ... too busy having cuddles :)


This Week's Reading List: 

THORNWOOD HOUSE by Anna Romer (audiobook) ~ chapter 15 and it's wonderful

RISKY BUSINESS by Amy Andrews ~ 75% done

THEN CAME YOU by Jill Shalvis (Animal Magnetism #5) ~ hell yeah

MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover


Reviews Coming:

THE COLLECTOR by Nora Roberts (audiobook) ~ not up there with The Witness. A bit predictable and implausible but still enjoyable, good narration by Jenna Whalen. 

CORDUROY LOST AND FOUND by B.G. Hennessy ~ my boys loved Corduroy when they were little and I still love this intrepid little bear. 


  1. Congratulations to you and your family and welcome to the world, baby Mia!

  2. CONGRATS Grandma!!!!!!!! She is sooooooooooo beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Hey congratulations, that's awesome!

  4. Congratulations, Mia is beautiful.

  5. Oh my goodness. Such a precious bundle. Congratulations Nonna! Who'd read a book with such a wonderful arrival.
    On the book level I am looking forward to my Animal Magnetism novel to arrive in the post. Enjoy it all!

  6. Congratulations, she is wonderful :)

  7. Congratulations Nonna! She is beautiful!

  8. They say there is nothing like being a grandmother! Congratulations!

  9. Fabulous news!! All the best to you and your family.

  10. Congrats on little Mia! She is gorgeous...and I know how exciting it is to see a new baby grandchild. I was at the hospital when my granddaughter Fiona was born (she is now 17!); we have always had an extra special bond. Enjoy!

    I am reading The Collector now...and yes, different from The Witness, but I like the character Lila (writer/house-sitter sounds like fun!).

    I'll bet reading this week will not be your favorite thing, with a new baby. Enjoy! And thanks for visiting my blog.

  11. Ohhhh my goodness. I think I am smitten with Mia, too! She's absolutely beautiful! Congratulations!!!

  12. Cuddles are better than reading any time. Congratulations to your family. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  13. Congrats to you for joining the grandma club! I am a Nana to 3, and was able to assist in one of the births (the other I was out of state, and the last was an emergency c-section). Nothing can describe the feeling. Mia is a beautiful bundle of joy! Don't worry about the reading, it will still be there. Savor the moment for now, have a good week!

  14. Congratulations and best wishes to the whole family!

  15. CONGRATULATIONS to everyone.

    THORNWOOD HOUSE looks good.

    ENJOY your new grandbaby and your books.
