"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

What are you reading (21)?

It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!

I didn't get a chance to even post last week, my life has gotten so busy.  With the holidays approaching, I've been trying to get my Christmas shopping done so I don't have to waddle through huge crowds come December.  I'm almost finished, and know exactly what else I need to buy so it shouldn't take me much longer.  This week was especially busy for hubby and I.  We had our baptismal class for the baby, a birthday party, dinner with family, and then our baby shower was this past weekend.  It was amazing and turned out wonderfully.  We got a ton of gifts and almost all of the big stuff that we had registered for.  We couldn't be more thankful for the amazing friends and family that we have!  My mom is coming over next Monday to help me wash baby clothes and blankets and put everything away so the room is completely finished and we are ready for his arrival (and I'll definitely be ready...I'm completely miserable and now have legs that look like large tree trunks with the amount of water I am retaining!!)

So here's the run down of the books I read in the past two weeks.  Most of them I finished during the first week.  I didn't have a ton of reading time these past few days (click on the titles for link to review):
This coming week will be a busy one again.  I have a follow ultrasound on Wednesday.  The way the baby is laying is making it difficult to get really clear pictures of his heart.  He's being stubborn so I have to go to a specialist where they have "a really awesome ultrasound machine" according to the girl at my OBGYN's office.  The Drs are pretty sure he's laying breech so I'm hoping beyond hope that he decides to turn!  My brother is also home for the week, and we have a very busy Turkey Day but I'm looking forward to spending the day with family.

Here's my reading plans for the week (all titles linked to Goodreads):

Lamb by Christopher Moore - I started this one last night and so far its pretty humorous.

Audio of The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom - I started listening to this one on Friday at work and was almost sad to see five o clock come because I had to stop it.  It was absolutely amazing!!

Garden Spells - Sarah Addison Allen

Audio of The Language of Secrets by Dianne Dixon

That's my week.  What do you have planned?

I loved Viola In Reel Life - that was the first Adriana Trigiani I read and I was hooked!
Garden Spells looks amazing!
