The Sunday Post #107

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 Year of Wonders: A Novel of the Plague by Geraldine Brooks.
  • On Wednesday I review Within These Walls by Ania Ahlborn.
  • On Thursday I wrap up July.

In My Reading Life

I watched significantly fewer episodes of Game of Thrones last week, so I actually got some reading done. I read Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. Right now, I’m reading The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Hiking.
  2. Hanging out in the dog park with my critters.
  3. Rearranging my bookshelf and figuring out what I’m going to read next month.
  4. So much blogging. I’m still binge blogging to get ahead for the rest of the year.
  5. 1000 Twitter followers! Thank you!

Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!


  1. Can't wait to see your reviews for your recent reads. Good for you for blogging ahead. I finally feel like I am getting in a better groove with blogging again. Hiking sounds awesome. Congrats on 1,000 Twitter followers!! Have a great week!

  2. Looking forward to your thoughts on Year of Wonders! My dad and I are binge watching Game of Thrones season six tomorrow so he has nearly caught up! Finally I can talk to him about theories and stuff!

  3. I love Year of Wonders. I'm glad you did, too.

    One of these days I'm going to work on my Twitter. One of these days.

  4. I would love to hiking - I was just saying to my husband that our hiking has been really down this year, we've just had terrible weather. Hopefully soon! That's awesome that you're blogging so far ahead! I have some stuff planned, but now I just have to get it written.

  5. Your cats express how I feel. You got some terrific books this week.

  8. I like binge blogging. Love that feeling of getting organized. Speaking of GoT, I need to watch the current episodes that are out now. I might binge it later.

  9. Yay for getting ahead on your blogging! I keep meaning to do that, but have been too lazy, so I'm still frantically trying to write posts the night before they go up! :)
    And congrats on the 1000 Twitter followers! That's amazing :)

  10. Game of Thrones can be a tad addictive, glad you got to do some more reading last week. :) And congrats on the Twitter followers!

  11. Once our home is on the market, I can go back to hiking. Right now this part of the move is taking up all my free time. The old place is nearly ready. Meanwhile, we're happily settled in our temporary apartment. Come see what I'm reading

  12. Congrats for 1000 Twitter followers! :) Shadow and Bone and Grisha trilogy in general is one of my favorite ones. Love how it's mixed with Russian fairytales...

    Have a great week :)

  13. Ooh, you've reviewed some interesting stuff! Better check it out. Congrats on the followers, I also broke 800 this week, which I feel great about :)
    Also, I'm reading my first Silvera - They Both Die At The End, but it's so depressing, I'm not sure I'll ever read another one :0

  14. Binge blogging! What a great idea.

  15. I have been on the fence about The Heart Goes I LOVE many of Atwood's books, like The Handmaid's Tale, The Robber Bride, etc. But then I didn't like the MaddAddam Trilogy at all.

    The premise of The Heart Goes Last made me cringe a little bit. The idea of alternating living space with anyone...well, you wouldn't find me signing up. But then again, if you're homeless...

    You wrote a great review...and I'm still on the fence!

    Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  16. I liked the Shadow and Bone series. Come see my week here. Have a great week!

  17. Congrats on 1000 twitter followers! Yay for getting ahead on blogging. I really need to do that. Have a great week!

  18. I am currently binge blogging just now! It does make a difference! I'm on holiday this week so for the first time in like ever I actually have scheduled posts!! Congrats on the Twitter followers and have a fab week!
