The Sunday Post #37

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 One Death, Nine Stories by Marc Aronson and Charles R. Smith Jr. (Editors)
  • On Tuesday I list songs that should be books.
  • On Wednesday I review The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

In My Reading Life

I didn’t get a lot of reading done last week. I do most of my reading at night, and I was too tired for it. I read A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and started The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. Up next is I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak.

In My Blogging Life

I’ve updated the Blogs I Stalk thingy. Check it out if you haven’t yet. It’s over there. ---->

I’ve also finished reading and reviewing all of the Printz Award winners. You can find my reviews and rambles here.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. Super Bowl Sunday. I honestly don’t care about football, but I needed an excuse to eat nachos. I care passionately about nachos.
  2. The winner of the Super Bowl. I live in Colorado, so everyone who cares about football is very satisfied with the outcome of the football stuff. I like happy people.
  3. Girl Scout cookies.
  4. I took another Sorting Hat quiz. Still a Ravenclaw.
  5. New Harry Potter book? I’m not sure what’s true and what’s rumor about this. I just know that Goodreads exploded a little.

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


  1. Hi AJ. First time here via Sunday Post. Love your blog design! Special Elite is my favorite font and the graphics are lovely!
    I hear you about being super tires to read. I have been doing mostly audio books for two months now.
    HAHA your thoughts about Super Bowl are ALMOST mine! NACHOS! yeah! show YEAH! Happy people in Colorado... hummm not so much! since I live in New England and they eliminated the Pats :)

    I've been curious the craziness in GR about New Harry Potter book as well. Enjoy your week

  2. I heard about the new Harry Potter book, and then I heard it's a script and then I was unsure whether I'd want to read it. I really enjoyed Harry Potter when I was younger, but maybe it should have been left alone...

    1. I like reading scripts, so I’m interested to see what this one is about.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. I'm ready for the cheap candy! I haven't read as much either but I hope to make up for it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. Ooooh! I'm definitely interested in your review of The Ocean at the End of the Lane! I've been interested in that book forever! I'm also looking forward to the cheap candy tomorrow! ;) And congrats on being a Ravenclaw! It's the only way to be! :P

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

    1. I liked The Ocean at the End of the Lane. It’s a really short book, too.

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

  5. I didn't have a great reading week either. Interested to see what you think of Monster Calls. Nachos are always a happy thing!! Have a great week!

  6. Cheap candy!!! I loved both The Ocean at the End of the Lane and A Monster Calls. Have a great week!

  7. I feel kinda bad I've read nothing by Patrick Ness, though see his work around.

    My reading and writing week was pretty ordinary as well... but I hope to improve on that this coming week!

  8. Can't wait to read your review of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, loved that book so much :)
