Recent Updates and Currently Reading | May 10

Wishing you all a Happy Mother's Day today. Like every day for the last two months, I'll be spending it at home. We bought a hammock for my Mother's Day this year, but my middle child has been spending all of his time reading in it so it's basically his hammock at this point. 😊

Finished Reading


Alien: Mar de Pesares by James A. Moore 4 Star Rating The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence 3 Star Rating

Alien: Mar de Pesares by James A. Moore - I'm loving the Aliens series. I don't normally like full cast audio, but they are perfect for my spanish listening.

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence - I enjoyed this one, but I think I'm a bit of a black sleep here because I didn't love it. I'll have a review out for it soon.

Currently Reading


#CurrentlyReading Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo #CurrentlyReading Blood Countess by Lana Popović

I'm buddy reading Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo this week with Tracy, and I'm loving it.

I started reading Blood Countess by Lana Popović last night, and so far I'm hooked!

Recent Acquisitions





After reading and loving The Apocalyptic Mannequin, I needed a lot more Stephanie Wytovich in my life so I ordered Hysteria, Brothel, Mourning Jewelry by Stephanie M. Wytovich, and Sheet Music to My Acoustic Nightmare.

My preorder of Fractured Tide by Leslie Lutz arrived! I can't wait to read this one!

I also bought The Girl Beneath the Sea by Andrew Mayne and The Return by Rachel Harrison.

On audible, I purchased the audiobooks for The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson and A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

  1. I still haven't finished The Girl and the Stars, but I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who didn't love it. I hope to dive into Ninth House by the end of the month😁 Happy Mother's Day!

  3. I really enjoyed the Girl and the Stars but I had read the related trilogy. I LOVED Ninth House.

    I wonder if we would use a hammock. Our neighbors have one and they do.

    Happy Mother's Day! Take care and happy reading!

    1. I didn't read the related trilogy first, and from what I'm hearing after the fact, it would have been better.

  12. Do you find audible worth the price? I'm considering starting to listen to audio books but haven't taken the leap yet. I hope you can stop by:

    1. If you are able to get audiobooks through your library, I would start there. If you find you love listening to audiobooks, it's definitely worth it.

  13. I liked The Girl and the Stars but I'm not overly anxious to continue on right now. I'm glad you enjoyed Mother's Day even if it was at home. We didn't go anywhere either and I'm okay with that. Hope you and your family are doing well!
