The Sunday Post #39


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 I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak.
  • On Tuesday I list 10 books to read if you’re in the mood for crippling depression.
  • On Wednesday I review Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.
  • On Thursday I wrap up February.
  • On Friday I talk about the role that horror books have played in my life.




In My Reading Life


Last week, I read Burial Rites by Hannah Kent and The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer. Then I started The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan. People have been telling me for months that I need to read Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, so that will probably be next.



In My Blogging Life


My blog was featured on last week’s Feature & Follow Friday. If you voted for me, thank you!

Also, at the beginning of last week, I randomly got like, 40 new Twitter followers within a few hours. I feel like a celebrity, but I have no idea how I became one. Twitter is a mysterious beast that I will never understand.



In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. I read some awesome books.
  2. New books came in the mail, even though I’m supposed to be on a book-buying ban. Curse you, Book Outlet.
  3. I did a (fairly) good job of eating healthy and getting on the treadmill every day.
  4. Remember the Giant Essay From Hell that I’ve been whining about for months? Well, I finished it, and now I’m waiting to see if the university approves it.
  5. Midsession at school is almost over. Hopefully everything will feel less hectic after that.





I hope you had a great week! See you around the blogosphere!

  1. What did you think of Burial Rites? My Dad had me read it before he did (though he's still not read it, he doesn't really read!) HHave a great week and happy reading!

  2. I really enjoyed reading your post on why you read adult books --they were all so true! Also, good for you for eating healthy and getting on the treadmill everyday. I could really take a page out of your book there.

  6. Yay for finishing the Giant Essay from Hell. That has to feel good. Twitter is strange isn't it? I will get tons of followers at times and never know what the reason is. Congrats on being featured on Feature & Follow!

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.
