Birthdays and Serial Book Hopping

Bookish updates in the last 2 weeks

Happy Sunday, Wormies! It has been a fun week! This week was my birthday week and I have a giveaway! Don’t forget to check out the giveaway post! Thank you for all your birthday greetings! It really made my day better!


I also managed to squeeze in a couple of books read, which is amazing because I have been busy at work and usually fall asleep at around 10 PM without reading a single page (the horror)! I’ve also been hopping from book to book because no book can capture my attention. Hopefully, this will change soon!

I finished reading When a Duke Loves a Woman by Lorraine Heath and I LOVED it! It’s my second 5-star read (not including re-reads) of the year and it is all good, and emotional, and it had me ugly cry until the last page! Definitely, a must read! Review to come, soon!

We also went to Tejon Ranch (more photos here!) last Sunday and saw wildflowers! It was a beautiful day, too! After the rain we were having here in California, it was a relief for the sun to shine again. The rain was good for the drought but driving everywhere was crazy!

I haven’t been watching a lot of movies in the last two weeks, but I started watching Harlots and continued bingeing Ancient Aliens. I know, I have a weakness of all things alien – maybe that’s why I love sci-fi so much?

Ready Player One is still not in the cards for me. I am [impatiently] waiting for Pierre to come home so we can watch it before Avengers: Infinity War is showing. I mean, we can still watch both movies, but we tend to watch one movie a week, so…


Fire in You by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I really like Jilian, but for some reason, the story is going sloooowly and I am not feeling Breck? I don’t know. I just wish this series stayed in college, you know? The reason why I loved this series so much was that it was a New Adult, now it’s more Contemporary. Which is not a bad thing, but I’m just not feeling it.

    • I know! There are awesome bookstagrammers on IG! I wish I could take photos like them! I try… and try to improve my set-up 😉

  1. Love the wildflower pic! Very nice. And I haven’t seen Ready Player One either, although I did see Tomb Raider and liked it. And I can’t believe how close Avengers is getting!!

    I love anything about ancient aliens lol.

    Happy birthday!!!

    • I haven’t seen Tomb Raider yet but I will probably just rent it. I think that will be the same with A Wrinkle in Time… LOL

    • Gahhh I know what you mean, Samantha! It was a little disappointing… I will try her other books, but it’s not actually capturing my attention right now.. LOL

  2. I love the HR’s here, and love the Lisa Kleypas IG photo!! I just won a copy of A Match Made in Bed by Cathy Maxwell, who is new to me. And Happy Belated Birthday!!

    • Thank you, Joann! Cathy Maxwell is a hit and miss author for me but I want to read If I Ever Should Love Her first before reading A Match Made in Bed… 🙂 Hope you enjoy the book!

  3. Oh my goodness. You got so many amazing books this week! I hope you start to get the reading bug soon. I’ve had those times where I just didn’t pick up a book for a while. When a Duke Loves a Woman sounds like a really awesome read. I haven’t read this author before but you have me intrigued with this one.

    • If you are a fan of historical romance, Lorraine Heath is an awesome author to try. I recommend starting with her Scoundrels of St. James series because it is very much inspired by Oliver Twist!

      I am reading…. but still jumping from book to book for some of them.. LOL

  4. I added The Cruel Prince to the TBR this week. I’ve been seeing so much about it and have wanted to read for a while. When I saw it on sale at only £1.49 (amazon uk) I snapped it up. Time to see what the fuss (good and bad!) is all about!

    • Oh, I heard a lot of good things about The Cruel Prince! I need to read that soon. I think I am queued for the audiobook from the library so there’s really no rush. I hope you enjoy the book!

    • I really need to read The Year We Fell Down. It’s so unique and angsty and I feel like it is very emotional… that’s like crack to me!
