The Sunday Post #62


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. It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Date. I get to tell you what I’ve read recently.


On The Blog Last Week





On The Blog This Week


  • On Monday I review A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck.
  • On Tuesday I show you some forced school reads that weren’t (too) painful.
  • On Wednesday I review The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
  • On Thursday I wrap up August.




In My Reading Life


Last week, I read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I have many, many thoughts about it, so brace yourself for a huge, confusing, spoiler-filled discussion post. I also read More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera. Right now, I’m reading Geek Love by Katherine Dunn.






In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. I bought books. This is mostly school’s fault, but I’m still excited.
  2. My school work is slowing down a little. This is both strange and wonderful. It’s been a long, intense summer.
  3. I filled out my graduation application. It's really happening, guys.
  4. Mexican food!
  5. Couch to 5k is back on track. (Well, except for all the Mexican food.) I ran on all the days I was supposed to run and didn’t half-ass the running.




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

    1. Tacos are awesome. Not as awesome as nachos, but still awesome.

  2. Sounds like you had a busy week. Congrats on the couch to 5k progress - I need to do that myself but I keep getting interrupted by work travel.

    1. I had to take a week off Couch to 5k because I was busy, but the running hasn’t gotten difficult yet. I like doing it.

  8. Mexican is something I always seek out when I'm down in the States - we're finally getting a few quality Mexican restaurants where I live, but man, nothing that can compare to what you can get if you're willing to drive across the border!

    1. I live in Colorado, so we have tons of Mexican food because the state used to be part of Mexico.

  9. I'm glad the school work is slowing down... but hasn't the school year just started there? (confused)

    Yay for graduating and very well done on getting back into the C25K!

    1. I’m on a nontraditional school schedule. I go during the summer and winter, then I get short breaks in spring and fall. The semester ends in October for me.

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.
