It’s Monday What are you reading? #18


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

The wonderful host of this weekly meme is Shelia from Book Journey. You can check out her blog to find out all the details on how to take part in this fun weekly meme. I should warn you though that this can add to an ever increasing TBR pile or wishlist.

First off I would like to wish all the mothers again A Happy (belated) Mother’s Day wish. I put up a post yesterday wishing it to everyone but today I thought I would take a few minutes to share with you some Mother’s Day goodies I got.

One of my favorite things is when Michael comes home with stuff he has made in school. I absolutely love it and nothing makes be feel better then that because over the past few months Michael has been struggling with art at school because he thinks his stuff isn’t good and I keep reassuring him that it is but he thinks I say that because I am suppose to.


This is the outside of the card he made at school and the flower. I told him that I plan on making the flower into a magnet for the fridge. He thought I was going to use it as a bookmark but I told him that its too pretty to use and I want to show it off so the fridge is a good place for it.

This is the inside of the card that he wrote. If you don’t understand french it says
“Happy Mother’s Day Mom.
I love you mom.
I love it when you give me hugs and kisses.
Michael xoxo”

On Mother’s Day we took a walk into the village for lunch and to do some looking around. We went into a store and Michael spotted this and wanted to buy it for me. Its a bird napkin holder that was made in Mexico.

We took a drive and ended up in Laval (this is about 15 minutes from my house) where we popped into (new to me)Indigo. I was pretty impressed with the layout of the store but I have to admit that I had no idea where anything was so it was nice to look around.

We grabbed some Frappuccino’s at Starbucks and we walked around. Of course I have to admit a few more books came home with us.


Thankfully I had another one of those 25% of coupons that I used for my book.


The one with Tangled on it came from Michael on Mother’s Day (I just love what it says on it) and I didn’t mention it but I also got the other too on the Indigo trip. Michael pointed out the middle one to me and said he wanted to get that for me because I do love the smell of fresh mown grass, coffee and new books. Of course the last one is self explanatory.



These were taken inside of Indigo and I love the one of Michael alone reading.

So enough chit chatting and lets get to what I read and plan to read this week. From last week I mentioned:

I didn’t get to pick this up last week but this is my current read. I picked it up last night to start reading. This is my middle grade feature book this month.

Check back for my review of this hopefully early next week along with a guest post from Ty. Also if you happen to take part in my Middle Grade Book Challenge this month, I will be giving a copy of this book away. (Sorry this contest is only for those that take part for the month of May.)

If I get The Undertakers finished this week I plan on picking up:

I am still listening to:

Last week I did finish reading:

Plus I read:

How was your reading week last week? Anything good planned for this week?

  1. It looks like you had a fabulous Mother’s Day! I wouldn’t use that flower as a bookmark either because I’d be afraid it would get messed up! Michael is a cutie!

  2. So jealous of the Mother’s Day bird. :O) Hope you had a fabulous day!
