The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kim the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Grab a cuppa and let me bend your ear (eyes?) for a few minutes with all my bookish news.
In January this year, I set out my 2015 goals for all to see. And I was doing ok on most of them except for this one:
- Declutter. I have lots of items put aside in my spare bedroom that I don’t want. I need to photograph them, advertise them and flog them! Other items need to be bagged for the charity shop.
But FINALLY I’ve made some progress on this one! I have sold some bulky items that I don’t need, I have sent 4 bags of books off the Charity Shop and given away lots more to friends and family. And I’m reclaiming this spare bedroom that was starting to resemble an episode of hoarders. Best of all I can start on organising this room properly and I get to work on sorting out my bookshelves. It’s very much a work in progress but going though all my old books is the fun bit!
I also launched my new series – planning for a Successful Blog, Like a Blogging Ninja! I love the feedback I’ve gotten so far and I’m excited about the other posts I’ve lined up for this series too. I’m such a planner nerd and I love that I get to feature a topic that I feel so passionate about.
I’m at 16 books. I’ve read one and added 2 new ones. This week I’ve mostly been reading my own books and even a book that I impulse bought and read the same day. I can’t tell you how much I love that I no longer feel I have to read back to back ARCs.

Earlier this year I joined FitReaders! Click on the image below for full details on how you can join in too.
My heel is niggly but not sore so I’m pretty sure that what I’m doing is working. I actually forgot to wear my Fitbit a few days but I’ve been to the gym 4 times and am averaging about 7K steps per day.
Hoping to step this up next week.
I didn’t track a morsel of food! Partly because I haven’t made the best of choices but I’m starting fresh again today.
Books I have received to review:
Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for The Secret by the Lake. I honestly just saw the word secret and that gorgeous cover and I was clicking as quick as I could. I didn’t even read the synopsis!
Thanks to Tantor Media and Edelweiss for giving me an audiobook of Carry the One. Now I just have to figure out how to listen to it. I normally use Audible to listen to Audiobooks but this has a compressed zip file that I’ve saved to my computer. Is there an easy way to put this on to my phone and listen to it there? Any ideas?
Books I have Bought!
I was listening to Super Serials podcast as recommended by Katherine at I Wish I Lived in a Library and I just had to go buy a Nancy Drew book afterwards. It makes me laugh that this book is about a missing will and read that title, it’s a HUGE SPOILER. In the flipping title! Too funny!
Well, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all. How was your week? Any books you were really excited about?
