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! 

Another month down, who can believe it ... 1st day of Spring here! A busy but good week and a big weekend with my son and family back for a few days. Saturday night saw both sons at home for the first time since Christmas, was so nice seeing Callum with his little niece. After appointments today, I'll be spending a few days in Chinchilla; more time with my precious granddaughter ... can't wait!

Reviews Coming: 

MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover ~ loved it!!


  1. She is growing so fast, just like Cole. This is my last week with him before his mom goes back to work and he goes to daycare. I am so tempted to retire just so I can have him during the day! Accidents of Marriage was a good read.

  2. She is soooooo precious!!! And just started Jill's latest today!! :)

  3. I would love to give Mia a big hug, she is that cute! Enjoy her!

    I liked Accidents of the Marriage and hope you do too. I should give Colleen Hoover a try. Someone else today just read and enjoyed a book of hers. Have a great week.

  4. I've requested Accidents of Marriage through Netgalley. I hope they pass it as it sounds very good. Give Mia a hug! My grand daughter is Tia.

  5. Happy spring to you! For us, it's all downhill now LOL. Oh well I like fall so not too bad... and we're having warm weather at the moment to usher out summer.

    Enjoy the family time!

  6. Lovely pictures of your family! I hope you have a wonderful visit.

    I am looking forward to reading The Glass Kitchen eventually. There are holds on it at my library currently.

    I have Accidents of Marriage on my TBR pile but I am not up to reading it yet. That book may emotionally wreck me...

  7. Mia is beautiful.
    Sounds like you have been enjoying your reading. Isn't that always good. :-)
    I am seeing many blogs with Accidents of Marriage - I hope you enjoy it.

  8. Happy reading, and walking ;) this week

  9. I am going to buy Accidents of Marriage because a few of you are shouting out about it! Sounds good. I have my fitbit! How do I add you? I did 10 000 steps today from my 30 min walk and general walking about the school. Won't be quite so good tomorrow as on release and will be sitting a lot!
    Are you noticing the lighter evenings and mornings? I am. Spring is in the air!! Baby Mia is beautiful. Enjoy, they grow so quickly.

  10. Enjoy your time with your granddaughter. I admire your walking program. I spend too much time on my couch in front of my computer. I am not familiar with any of the books you are reading or have read. I hope you enjoy them all. Happy reading!

  11. I am expecting Accidents of Marriage tomorrow on Sparky (pre-order), and I LOVE the cover of Bitter Greens. I'm off to check that one out. I also checked out your review of The Escape Artist, which I have on Sparky.

    I adore little Mia...her eyes are gorgeous, with those lashes...she's a heartbreaker! LOL

    Enjoy your books and that baby! And thanks for visiting my blogs.

  12. I hope you love Bitter Greens as much as I did!

  13. Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing them. Enjoy Spring time.

  14. Ahh, that picture of uncle and niece is so precious! Enjoy every moment :)

  15. SO cute! :)
    I've heard a few things about Bitter Greens, it's supposed to be pretty good!

  16. You are doing so well with your walking!
    I am yet to read a Kate Forsyth book but I have heard such good things. Must put her higher up my TBR list!
