The Sunday Post #21

The Sunday Post is hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to recap the past week, talk about next week, and share news.

On The Blog Last Week

On The Blog This Week

  • On Monday I review Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira.
  • On Tuesday I list all of the series I’ve abandoned so far this year.
  • On Wednesday I review The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner.
  • On Thursday I list ten symptoms of reading too much young adult fiction.
  • On Friday I get superpowers.
  • On Saturday I might show you my Printz Award books. (This post depends entirely upon my awful photography skills.)

In My Reading Life

I finally finished The Sound and the Fury. It only took me a month. I had to read the first half of the book three times to fully understand what the heck was going on. All of you people who think that nonlinear narrative structures are confusing should try reading Faulkner. He takes confusing to a whole new level. I loved the book, though.

I also read Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman last week. Up next is The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore.

In My Blogging Life

I added a “Blogs I Stalk” thingy to the blog. Go click on it. It’s over there somewhere. ----->
Those are my current favorite blogs. I’ll add more as I discover new favorites.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. It’s fall! That means it’s not a billion degrees right now.
  2. My assistantship was renewed, and I get to work more hours next year.
  3. I actually had time for reading last week. I felt like I barely read anything in September because I was so busy.
  4. The deer are coming down from the mountains. I like seeing them because their fur is all cute and fuzzy for winter.
  5. I found a vintage drawing of a chubby man riding a chicken. It was drawn in the 1850s. I don’t know why.

I hope you had a great week. I’ll see you around the blogosphere.

    1. I can’t imagine living in a place that doesn’t have seasons. That would be strange for me.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!
