Happy Mother’s Day!

Already halfway through May. Yay … ? The weather is all over the place – high 90’s, then chilly and raining, then windy af. My wardrobe is confused.

I finally finished my 1st book for the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge. Yup, one book. One.ย *sigh* Reading is slow going lately. Even slower than usual. I remember the good old days when I read 15 books a month. Hell, even when I blogged more. ๐Ÿ™

On the Blog

Books Read

  • Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs (audio)
  • Feel Me by Cecy Robson
  • Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas – I’m halfway through & loving it!

Books Acquired

For Review:


I’m 3 episodes into The Handmaid’s Tale. Scary.

Looking Forward To

Andy Weir has a new book coming out! I’m excited! Even better is it’ll be out in November. You can read about it on Nerdist.

Have a great week!

  1. Hey happy 200th post! And happy Mom’s day too. ๐Ÿ™‚ 90’s? Yikes we can barely get in the 70’s- although it has been a nice week so I can’t complain.

    Love that GIF lol.

    I’m wondering if I should watch The Handmaid’s Tale. Probably… it’s a dytopian right?

      Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€ THT is dystopian/speculative fiction… *cough*realistic*cough* Only the first five episodes are out now, so you may want to wait if you prefer to binge or watch the episodes closer together. But definitely watch.

  2. The Red sounds yummy. Looking forward to your review for it. So tempting. July can’t come soon enough.
    Andy Weir is a new to me author. I love the Martian but haven’t read the book yet.
    I hope you enjoy all these books, Christy. Have a wonderful week and Happy Mother’s Day. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I miss my mom and want to visit her in a few days. So excited. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Yeah the weather is nuts. I just want warmer temps!! I have the Garden of Small Beginnings to get to as well. Hope we both enjoy it. I don’t have Hulu so no Handmaid Tale for me. I am interested in it though and I like the cast a lot. YAY for new Andy Wier!! Happy Mother’s Day and have a great week!!

  4. Your weather sounds like my weather this week! Yay for making progress on a challenge! I have a copy of Before She Ignites coming, in theory. I hope you love it! I’ve been watching The Handmaid’s Tale too and I agree it’s disturbing! Have a great week ๐Ÿ˜€

    I know that feeling all too well. This week I finally finished my first book towards the challenge too. Haven’t managed to write a review yet. But hey at least we have finished one.

  6. Happy Mother’s Day, Christy!
    YEP, my wardrobe is very confused too with this weather. It’s annoying. We’re supposed to get really warm weather this week though, so I hope it stays stable.
    You’re watching Handmaid’s! Me too! It is some scary shit. I’m up to episode 4, I need to watch the last. We should chat about it when you’re caught up.
    Happy reading!

  7. So I never read The Handmaidโ€™s Tale, but I was interested in watching the show. But…I’m not sure, what do you mean when you say “scary”!? haha Have a good week!

    • Christy

      Scary because of how realistic it is by using real social norms from here and other countries, how easy it could be to move backwards instead of progressing. Scary times. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Nathan

        I agree, it is scary because unlike zombie films, you can actually see this dystopian actually happening here someday if we are not careful.

  8. Happy Mother’s Day, Christy! I hope you got pampered today. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Trying to get back into the swing of things. Sigh. And yeah, weather’s pretty much the same here. A little confused. Lol.

    have a great week!

    Cheers for reaching 200th post! I hope you enjoy your book haul. The Handmaids Tale looks disturbing. The weather here is cool for May. Happy Mother’s Day :).

      • Nathan

        I watched it last night with my mom. It is worth watching and it is based on a Canadian authors book. Still disturbing.

  10. Happy belated Mother’s Day, Christy! I hope you enjoyed your weekend and that your family spoiled you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    What did you think of Iron Kissed? I just finished Blood Bound and have Iron Kissed lined up to read next in that series but I ended up picking up something else to read. Did you like it? Is there a lot of Adam in it because I love me some Adam and Samuel!

    The Handmaid’s Tale is also on my watch list for the summer. I’m low key excited to jump into that one.

    • Christy

      Thanks, Rowena! Hope you had a nice one too.

      I really like Iron Kissed! Heh – yeah, there’s plenty of Adam. ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. One book is one book more than mine! lol I’m totally gonna suck at this Clean Sweep ARC Challenge. I’m not getting any reading done! OMG A Reisz book!! I’ll check it out NOW! You’ll be back at your good old blogger mode. Wait and see ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Christy

      lol – It’s okay, it’s just for fun anyway. Hope you at least join the Twitter party today @ 7:30 EST.
