Haaaappy Mother’s Day!

We had a storm blow in with some flash flooding this week, which was nice. Not necessarily the flooding, but the storm. It’s supposed to go back up to the 90’s next week, though.

I’m doing okay with the #CleanSweepARC Challenge. I’ve read 2.5 books so far, but need to step up my game.

Hope all of you who are going to BEA have fun! I’ll be … somewhere else. Or maybe I’ll be there, right next to you, and you’d never know. Bwahahaha!

On the Blog

  • Admiral by Sean Danker (review) – An exciting sci-fi thriller that isn’t too heavy on the sci-fi.
  • Morning Star by Pierce Brown (review) – Oh boyo! Freaking loved it!

Books Read

  • Before the Fall by Noah Hawley – Pretty good mystery.
  • Wanderlost by Jen Malone – So stinkin’ adorable!

Books Acquired

For Review:

Ugh, my calendar is already filling up with fall releases. Trying to be super selective, though.

Purchased:

All price drops, baby! I already read and LOVED Brother, but I only had the ARC copy, so I snagged a finished ecopy while it’s only $1.99.


Watching

Haha – A new Epic Rap Battle featuring Tolkien and Martin.

 


Have a great week!

  1. Ooh 90’s- it’s not that warm here. That’s a little too hot. Admiral looks good, I’ve seen a few reviews for that now and they were all good. May be adding that one. And I’m definitely interested in the new Lauren Oliver one- love the sound of it. Diplomatic Immunity has a good cover.

  2. Happy Mother’s Day!!! I’m sure there are some readers thinking, “Who’s that crazy lady talking about wire hangers?” I freakin’ remember when that movie came out!!! Grrrrrrrr, *bones cracking*, grrrrrrrr

    I’m slumping hard again. I need to DNF some stuff and ignore publicist emails that say, “thanks for downloading our title, now where’s our review?” UGH….

    Oh, and Tolkien won. All day long. GRRM can’t finish writing a book before he starts a new project or something bright and shiny catches his attention.

    Grrrrrrrrr….

      The fact that you know that makes me heart you even more. I’d call my mom ‘Mommy Dearest’ growing up when she’d make me do something or I was being a snot. lol.

  3. That rap battle is perfection. <3
    Happy Mother's day! It's been in the low 70's here…everyone loves it, but anytime the wind picks up and clutch my jacket a bit tighter. I hope you have a good time going…where ever it is you're going, lol!

  4. I had to check the weather here to see if it was similar. Sure enough. Rain this week and high 80’s and into the 90’s coming up. Crazy. It’s no wonder everyone allergies are playing havoc with them. Admiral is one I hope to read soon-ish. Before the Fall also appeals to me. I hope you have a great week!

  5. Happy Mother’s Day! I can still hear Faye Dunaway’s voice screeching “no wire hangers…ever!” I have that movie…maybe I should watch it later today.

    It’s 53 degrees right now (at 8:28 a.m.); it’s supposed to rise to 70. I’ll be having brunch at the lake with my daughter and her fiance.

    I am envious of the BEA people…when the event moves closer to the West Coast, I’ll be there! (I hate flying!).

    Enjoy your week…and my post is on my Curl up and Read blog. (I didn’t “pass” the URL test…too many, it said, lol).

    Hope you enjoyed your Mother’s Day – we had ours back in March:). It looks like it’s been a great week for you and I enjoyed reading your review of Morning Star – it’s been a fab series and one of my reading highlights of the year so far. We’ve finally had some warm weather this week, though nothing like your heat so winter finally feels over! Have a good reading week.

  7. We also had a storm blow in. It sprinkled on and off on us at the park Sunday. It was nice and I think we are getting a little bit more, but then it will be hot and humid as Hades.
