"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?





I love this meme posted by Sheila over at Book Journey. It's a great way to reflect on the week just finished and the days ahead. You can check out her blog here.

What a week!  Work was horrific.  I spent a few days in tears, which I contribute more to just stress and pregnancy hormones than anything else.  Then, to add more stress to the situation, Hubby's Dad was diagnosised with prostrate cancer.  He's in the early stages, and we should hopefully find out more this week, but we're trying to stay positive about everything.  It's definitely a scary situation though. 

Tomorrow is Anthony's first day of daycare, so I've been busy today preparing myself for tomorrow's emotional morning.  I spent a lot of time today chasing down toy cars and balls, and dancing to silly songs.  Me and the little guy were both exhausted by the time he went to bed!

As for reading this week, I didn't get to nearly everything I wanted to.  I did read two books, both of which I found to be pretty enjoyable:

 
I posted the review for Catch of the Day, and should have the review for Sit, Stay, Slay up sometime this week.
 
As for this coming week, I have a few stragglers from last week to read, and a couple new ones I'd really like to sink my teeth into.  I probably won't be able to get to all of them, but I'd sure like to try!
 
 
 
Looks like a busy but fun reading week for me.  What's on your reading plate this week?

Take time for yourself at work. I hope next week is better.

I plan to make 2013 my year of reading from my own bookshelves. Please come see what I'm currently reading.

Congratulations on the pregnancy =) and I hope everything sorts out for your Husbands father. Cancer seems to be getting everyone these days =/

It's a nice list you've got there. None are my type of books, but I would possibly try out Winter Garden due to the cover and the title.

Currently behind on my reading list, and I didn't have as much as you. Hopefully I'll at least finish this next one before the end of tomorrow.

Have a look at my list if you wish. This Weeks Books
