Sunday Post #87: Happy Mother’s Day!

Posted May 8, 2016 in Meme / 16 Comments


The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.





What a gorgeous week it’s been weather-wise!  Friday, the entire family got outside to work in the yard on various projects.  Hopefully I’ll be able to plant tomatoes and cukes on Saturday (writing this post on Friday).  Nothing fancy, they just go in barrels next to the deck.  Hopefully there won’t be a freeze during the week while I’m gone (please, no!!!!)





For some reason, I can NOT finish a book!  I have finally finished Katee Robert’s The Marriage Contract a few days ago and it was only through sheer will that I did it.  I just didn’t really care.  I enjoyed the story and the characters.  The book just didn’t “call” me back to it.  You know, that beckoning call a book puts out when you’re in the middle of doing something else.  On top of that, I was reading it so I could understand The Wedding Pact, the second book in the series that I took for review, and I was updating the status of the wrong book for a while there.  You’d think I could keep them apart.

I’m better than this!!

I think after BEA I need a serious book break.  Today’s TBR didn’t help one bit, either.  Slow the frick down, World!!!





I will not be posting next week.  If you want to check out the nefariousness I’m up to next week in Chicago, I’m pretty sure I’ll be posting updates on Twitter and Instagram.  I might even be up to no good with some other bloggers you might know… if I’m so lucky 😉

Thank you to HarperCollins, Chronicle Books, Cecy Robson, and Harlequin for the awesome books this week!






I’m on Tumblr sometimes but mostly so I can follow all my favorite cartoon artists and to get pop culture news that I’d never find anywhere else.  I stumbled across a re-post from Beth Revis about Alice Roosevelt that talked about how stinking awesome she was… in her time period.



See you on May 21st for my next Sunday Post!







Psssst… check out my organization this week!?!  I kick total ass!  Sadly, it probably won’t last…




About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.

  1. Nice to finally have some decent weather around here lol. Love the cover of Diplomatic Immunity, and Gena/ Finn actually sounds really good. I had the same problem with books a week or so ago, things were just not clicking.

    Have fun at BEA. 🙂

  2. Enjoy your time at BEA….I am envious! You are probably so excited about all the books you’ll get that reading now doesn’t really interest you.

    Alice Roosevelt is my kind of person!

    My post is at my Curl up and Read blog (I had too many URLs for you site, apparently, LOL).

  3. Alice Roosevelt is officially my new hero. I totally look up to the woman. 🙂 She is fantastic.

    It has been raining so much I don’t even know if I will be able to do a garden. If this continues they will all die on me.

    I can’t wait for BEA and plan to take a much needed step away. Sometimes it gets me in a better blogging mood. I can’t wait to meet up!
    Have a great week, Kristin and Happy Mom’s Day!

  4. I’m so jealous of all of you at BEA. Not cos of BEA, but just cos you’ll be meeting other book bloggers. I hope we see heaps of pictures!

    I was wondering why you continued on with The Marriage Contract if you weren’t enjoying it, but realised then it was re context for the next book in the series. I hope it’s better!
