The Sunday Post #26 — I’m Back (Kind Of)

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 Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson.
  • On Tuesday I play Life of a Blogger tag.
  • On Wednesday I review Holes by Louis Sachar.
  • On Thursday I wrap up November.
  • On Friday I pretend to write a book.

In My Reading Life

I’ve failed epically at reading this month. I’ve only read three books. Right now, I’m rereading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

In My Blogging Life

I added more blogs to the Blogs I Stalk thing. It’s over there. ----> Go check it out if you’re looking for new blogs to follow.

I don’t know how my blog is going to look over the next few weeks. I’m home, but I’m still really busy. There might be slightly fewer posts than usual.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. I’m finally home.
  2. Traveling was an interesting (and intense) experience.
  3. I started my third semester of graduate school.
  4. Thanksgiving!
  5. I got a $26 book for $4.99. Winning at book shopping.

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


  1. Sounds like it was a busy month! Yay for winning at book shopping!! Have a great week!

  2. YAY welcome back-ish! You definitely had a hectic month but you survived and made it back home :D Congrats on your sweet book deal find too! Have a wonderful week AJ^^ xx

  3. The Book Thief is my daughters (college student) favorite book!! I like how you wrote pretended not to be broke on Black Friday, me too. I don't normally shop that day anyways.

    1. The Book Thief is one of my favorite books, too. It’s different from most of the other YA books I’ve read.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. I sometimes need a break from book blogging. There's always something going on in RL. Its okay to be busy. Busy keeps you occupied.

  6. It sounds like you had a great week! It's always nice to come home after a long trip, no matter how much you enjoyed it! Good luck with grad school! :D

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  7. Yay, welcome back!! I hope that the travel was interesting and intense in a good way, not "I got held captive in a cave" way ;) Thanks so much for adding me to your list! That is SO sweet! Mine will not work for me. I have tried to update it like, 20 times, and alas, it won't let me- add OR delete, which means there are like, defunct blogs hanging out.

    And YAY for book deals- that is a huge win! Hope you have a great week!

    1. Lol, there were no hostage situations. I just had to do a whole lot of stuff with very little sleep. I love your blog, so I’m happy to put it on the list.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

  8. Love your five things you're happy for - it's such a great idea. And I recognise many of the blogs on your stalking list, so good choices!

  9. Looks like even though you were super busy you still had a great week. The Book Thief is one I have always wanted to read (I loved the movie), so I hope you enjoy your re-read. Have a great week. :) My Weekly Wrap-Up

  10. I love your scheme of posts - they make for great weeks and always something to look forward to! The 5 things you're happy for is also really lovely <3 have a nice week (hopefully you'll be able to get some more reading done, or at least that's what I'm hoping to do!)
