The Sunday Post #130


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.




I hope you're all having a marvelous New Year!




On The Blog Last Week







On The Blog This Week


  • On Monday I review The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan.
  • On Tuesday I show you all the hyped 2017 releases I failed to read.
  • On Wednesday I review A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin.
  • On Thursday we figure out if I actually kept my 2017 resolutions.
  • On Saturday there’s a book haul.





In My Reading Life


Last week, I finished The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis. Then I read Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey. Right now, I’m reading The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night by Jen Campbell, and Ararat by Christopher Golden.








In The Rest Of My Life


Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. I ate some really good Buffalo wings.
  2. New season of The Amazing Race.
  3. Hanging out at the dog park.
  4. I made my 2018 Challenges page! If you know any wonderful books that fit the challenge prompts, tell me.
  5. I decided that late December / early January are my favorite times to be a blogger. I love all the wrap ups, goals, and favorites posts. To everyone who is making goals, good luck! You can do it.





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

  8. Can I just say that I'm super jealous that you ate some really good wings? I've been craving wings so bad but I haven't picked any up yet. I have to say wrap up posts and things like that have always been my favorite posts from bloggers. I love seeing what everyone read or accomplished.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  14. Ooooh. I'm interested to see what you thought of The Wolf Road! I didn't love it, but I'd like to see if you did. I'm also excited for your review of The Forest of Hands and Teeth! I LOVED that book but I read it years and years ago.

  15. I do like blogging during this time of year. I love all of the wrap up and goal posts as well. I also find that I am inside and reading more so I have more books to review. I really liked The Wolf Road and can't wait to read your thoughts on it. Have a great week!

  16. Your post made me want some wings. :( Yummy! I have to admit that December-February are my favorite times to be a blogger as well. I feel like everyone is super dedicated to their blogs and there are so many good reviews and discussions being pumped out during the end of the year to the beginning. :)

  17. I agree the end/beginning of the year is the best time as a book lover. I'm going from blog to blog and loving the wrap ups and best ofs.

  20. Wings are one of those foods that I've never tried. Buffalo Wings always sound too spicy for me. The Wolf Road looks interesting. I'll have to check into it a bit more. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  21. I am such a sucker for lists so all the wrap up posts and best of lists have been like keeping me a very happy blogger. Every time a new one pops up in my inbox I’m like, “Yes! A new list!” What kind I say... it’s the little things. Like good buffalo wings. :)
