The Sunday Post #20—I’m Back (I Think)

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 The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.
  • On Wednesday I review The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld.
  • On Thursday I wrap up September.
  • On Friday I talk about fictional characters that I want to kiss, marry, or kill.
  • On Saturday I show you my B&N book haul (this is what happens when Amazon messes up your book order, and you have to make a surprise trip to Barnes & Noble).

In My Reading Life

This week, I read The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld and Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira. Right now, I’m reading The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. I started this book at the beginning of the month, and I still haven’t been able to finish it. I swear it will get read.

In My Blogging Life

I’m looking for interesting memes and tags to do. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.

In The Rest of My Life

I think I’m back from my hiatus. I had to take a break from blogging because I got sick, and then one of my dogs had a stroke and died unexpectedly. I still don’t feel great, but I did write some blog posts last week, so I don’t feel completely useless.

Here are 5 things that made me happy last week:

  1. I got to spend 11 years of my life with a sweet, happy dog that I loved very much.
  2. I took my other dogs to a new dog park, and they had a lot of fun swimming in the creek.
  3. New books!
  4. In about a week, I will officially be halfway done with graduate school.
  5. Survivor and The Amazing Race started. I know it’s not cool to like reality TV, but I love those shows.

I hope you had a great week. I'll see you around the blogosphere!


  1. So sorry about your dog. I hope you start feeling better. Getting new books is alway a happy thing :) Have a great week!

  2. I'm sorry about your dog but I'm glad you had wonderful memories with yours! Mine died in an accident two years ago and I missed her terribly, but it was the joy and laughter that she brought with her that I still cherish until this day.

    I love your blog! I love the unique design and classic feeling it has. Definitely coming back next time! :D Happy Sunday!

  3. My condolences on your loss. Dogs are with us such a short time but bring joy to last a lifetime. I hope this week will bring more happiness.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss. My dogs are my fur children and I would be heartbroken. I will have to come back and check out your Friday post when it is up. It will an interesting read on the character you love, or hate.

  5. So nice to see you back and I love your 'things that make you happy' list this week! I love that you're remembering your dog and the time you had together.

  6. Welcome back! I am so, so sorry about your dog, but I love that you are able to look so fondly at the good memories. It's such an awful feeling to lose a beloved pet, HUGE hugs to you.

    Also, congratulations on being halfway done with grad school, that is fabulous! As for memes and tags.. tags are probably easier to find. Here are some tags that I did, if you want to play :) -

  7. I've wanted to read Love Letters to the Dead! I hope you enjoyed it and I will be looking forward to the review. So sorry to hear about your dog. It's terrible to lose a pet. *hugs*
