The Sunday Post #50


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 UnStrung by Neal Shusterman & Michelle Knowlden.
  • On Wednesday I review Poor Things by Alasdair Gray.
  • On Thursday I talk about lesser-known dystopias and try to figure out what a dystopia is, anyway.
  • On Friday I tell you why I read YA.
  • On Saturday I show you some books I’ve forgotten to include in hauls.

In My Reading Life


Last week, I read UnBound by Neal Shusterman, Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin, and Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman.








In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. It’s sometimes warm enough to sit outside.
  2. I moved the treadmill up to a 15% incline. My hips hurt like hell. I'm choosing to believe that the pain means I’m building muscle.
  3. I liked all the books I read.
  4. Charity doughnuts! I’m trying to eat healthier, but I ate doughnuts for a good cause. Also, they were delicious.
  5. I’m working on some fiction writing. This is also for charity. (A different—far less delicious—charity than the doughnut one.)






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

  2. Yay for liking all the books you read this week! I'm struggling with that this week. I had to force myself to finish the last book I read. It wasn't that it sucked but that it had a slow pace that lost my interest fairly often. Hope you have a great week and enjoy your new reads!

    Here's my Sunday Post.

    1. It’s rare that I like all the books I read in a week, so it’s always awesome when that happens.

  3. I'll be looking forward to your discussion on dystopia. I think that's one of my favourite genre to delve into if I want to read something else besides from my usual genre of contemporary. :)

    1. Contemporary and dystopia are my favorite genres, too. I read a lot of both of them.

  4. I'm glad the weather's improving for you. Also that you enjoyed the books you read.

    I have to admit I have no idea what Rosemary's Baby is about and really only recognise the name from the movie - which I think was a horror movie, so....

    Good luck with the fiction writing!

    1. Yep, Rosemary’s Baby is a classic horror novel. It was pretty good, too.

  5. Every day I tell myself I am going to be healthier tomorrow, does that count? It looks like you've got some great discussions coming up; I'm looking forward to them.

    1. Lol, I start each day by trying to eat healthy, but by the time I go to bed, the healthy eating usually hasn’t happened.

  6. 3000 comments! You go, girl. :D
    I can't wait to read more of the Unwind series just so I can come back and catch up on your reviews. That's normal, right? Ha...I'm just super glad you've enjoyed the series overall. I'm hoping to continue on with it after I wrap up a few reviews I've fallen behind on. Soon!
