sunday Salon - feeling under the weather.

Hi Sunday Saloners, I hope you are feeling better than me today. I have flu like symptoms and feel really rough. Everything seems to be a real effort and I am feeling overwhelmed by all my commitments. Isn't it funny - how when you feel ill, everything just feels a bit too much.

So I will be quick to day, before I head back to bed with my honey and lemon, Lockets and a box of mansize tissues.

I completed my library challenge and read the following 12 books.

1) The Baileys Game by Celia Rees
2) The Shamers Daughter by Lena Kaaberbol
3) The Island of Blue Dolphins by Scott O Dell
4) Tithe by Holly Black
5) Palace Pier by Keith Waterhouse
6) Knife by RJ Anderson
7) The Tales of Beedle The Bard by JK Rowling
8) Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
9) Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K.Hamilton
10) Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
11) The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
12) Skylight Confessions by Alice Hoffman

So yay me on finishing another challenge.

This week I finished reading Like Water For Chocolate and I have nearly finished The Spooks Secret and Beloved.

Here are the books below that I hope to start reading this week.

What do you plan to read this week?


  1. Congratulations! This week, I plan to be mostly reading SATs papers!

    Seriously though, I've been really really bad with reading of late. I just can't seem to get going. I'm sure it's like exercise - you become unfit with reading, and then when I'm back into it, it seems like the most essential and effortless thing in the world. I need to get going!

  2. Congratulations and well done with the completion of yet another challenge! You did great!

    I'm not sure what I'll be reading this week, but I guess it's time to pay close attention to those books I have listed on my challenge and get moving instead of getting sidetracked by other books... hehe...

  3. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well :( I hope you feel better soon!

    And yay, congrats on finishing the challenge!

  4. You had a great reading week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of Mudbound. I loved it. I hope you are feeling better soon.

  5. Terrific reading week! What a lousy day to feel sick, with twin daughters to honor you on Mother's Day.

    Congratulations, though, on finishing your challenge. Hope you feel up to reading this week! Take care of yourself.

  6. Hope you feel better soon! Congratulations on completing the challenge.

  7. Those books look like fun! I hope that you feel better soon.

  8. Hope you feel better soon! And congrats on finishing yet another challenge! I'm thinking I really need to start reading some of my OWN books instead of the library books all the time! :) This week, I hope to finish Small Island and start either Falling Man or Savvy depending on how I feel.
