Upcoming this week 
So this week. Not really sure It's been a overwhelming few months so it's quiet. Rare I know. I hope to work on my review pile this week. 
Almost done reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (Goodreads) Should have my review up today or Monday. 
I also will be reading Collide by Shelly Crane (Goodreads) for my words with friends challenge this week. 
I also need a "P" book with the words Camp and Pancake but I haven't found it yet so I need to look for that one also. 
Then the rest of the week will be review books. Going to knock that pile down a bunch this month. 

Around the blogosphere
The Perpetual Page Turner has a Friday A to Z Survey this week (Here) I need to do this, it's a fun idea. 
A Book Lovers Review has a spotlight for Cipher (Here) that caused me to pick up a copy this week. 
I Smell Sheep has a fantastic post from Laura Bickle (Here)

I proved I'm a dork I had a twilight marathon. While watching all the movies 1 to 4.5 as I like to call it.I worked on a new bookmark while watching so I didn't just zone off into twilight world. However I love the books and even though I don't care for the actress playing Bella I still love the movies.  I was going for owls but the hubby says penguins. Oh well I'll try to make my next one more owlish. 

As promised a few photos of my over 80 pound almost 27 inches at the shoulder 6 month old Husky/Malamute. He's already twice the size of his mom and just a few pounds shy of his dad. However his dad was a year and only around 100 but not full grown either. So everyone is curious to see how the monster turns out. He's my blogging buddy he sits below my feet while at the computer. Yea I take lots of pictures of him. I admit a few the ones this morning with him sleeping at my feet aren't great quality because my daughter broke my iphone and I didn't want to buy a new one so close to the end of the contract so I have my old iphone 3 which isn't crappy. 

I know crappy quality but that's the bookmark I'm making I have a whole stack of the patterns that I plan to make over the next week.  

Have a great week everyone!!!!
Going to wake the hubby and watch Percy Jackson before we head off to the see the new one. 
Looking forward to checking out your posts.
