The Sunday Post #22


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 Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman.
  • On Tuesday I play TBR tag.
  • On Wednesday I review The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
  • On Thursday I might discuss something.
  • On Friday I talk about books I hate.



In My Reading Life


Last week, I read The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore, Monster by Walter Dean Myers, and Kit’s Wilderness by David Almond. Up next is A Step From Heaven by An Na. It’s been a long time since I managed to read three books in one week.


In My Blogging Life


I had a lot of fun writing the 10 Signs You Read Too Much Young Adult Fiction post. Go check it out if you haven’t yet. Also, my blog has a Printz Award page now. I know that I review a lot of YA, but prepare for a lot more. I’m going to read and review all of the past Printz winners. Hopefully I’ll be caught up by the time the 2016 winner is announced.


Giveaway


The Emerald City is hosting a giveaway and needs more people to enter. Go enter for a chance to win some awesome bookish accessories.


In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. I finished my second semester of graduate school. I’m halfway done.
  2. I had slightly more free time than usual. This means more time to read.
  3. Watching series 4 of The Great British Bake Off. I think American TV is a few seasons behind on this show. I can watch series 6 online.
  4. I’m going to Nevada and California at the end of the month. That’ll be interesting.
  5. Cheap Halloween candy.



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

  5. I liked your YA post- that was awesome. #s 1,3, and 8- heck, all of them really. So true! The sad thing is it does pretty well describe a lot of the YA I've read...

    I'll need to check your post on Vengence Road, as I'm interested in that one. Have a great week!

    1. I did enjoy Vengeance Road. I had never read a YA western before, so it was different.

  10. How did you enjoy Monster? I thought it was an innovative device and really loved it. If you liked it, Walter Dean Myers has another book called Slam that my teen son loved.

I do a happy dance every time I get a comment. (You should be grateful that you’re not around to witness this dance. It’s truly horrifying.) Leave a link to your blog so I can visit you.
