Finally!

Pin It

So, I finally got started on my first book of the TBR Challenge: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. It's not light reading even though it's hard to put down. The setting is the near future, the planet is polluted and the birth rate has dropped. The solution? Divide women into groups: Wives, Marthas and Handmaids. The Handmaids are for breeding. It's told from the point of view of a Handmaid named Offred (Of- Fred). I'll give more info after I finish it.

It's giving me strange dreams!

Anyway, I'm not much in the writing mood the last couple of days. I can hardly write a Post-It. I'm not really sure why. Just not in the mood, I guess. Hopefully, I'll get over it.

    Oh, I love that book. It is weird, and sad, but very interesting. Enjoy!

  2. I really liked this one. But yes, it is strange!! I can see why it would give a woman nightmares, that's for sure! You know, I think I was 1/2 through the book before I got the Of-Fred thing!
