The Sunday Post #54


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.



Happy 4th!



On The Blog Last Week






On The Blog This Week

  • On Tuesday I list some underrated books.

In My Reading Life


Slightly more reading has been happening lately. Last week, I read Beautiful You by Chuck Palahniuk and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson. I’m currently reading Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. I’ve now also written over 200 reviews on Goodreads. That is a lot of bookish ramblings!






In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Pizza.
  2. I turned in my first big assignment of the semester.
  3. I had more time than usual for reading.
  4. There were a few days that weren’t stupidly hot.
  5. Catching up on this season’s episodes of The Simpsons.





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

    1. Unfortunately, The Simpsons isn’t anywhere near as good as it used to be. I refuse to give up on it, though. I’ve been watching that show for my entire life.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Thanks! I kinda hated Beautiful You. The synopsis sounded interesting, but the book didn’t work out for me.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

  8. 200 reviews on Goodreads is commendable! I"m working on getting up there one day.
    It's good to see some people still watch The Simpsons. I devoured every episode of at least the first 12 seasons, but I eventually stopped because it's simply been on too long. I'm sure it's still a good show, but how long can on TV show be on the air for? haha, But as I said, good to see you're enjoying it. :)

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.
