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.
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
I’m not good at design but I do like messing around on PicMonkey sometimes and usually with a quote from a book or quote about reading. Well practise makes perfect, right?! Someday I’ll master the act of making graphics I’ll be happy with. I’ve gone back to basics in this one as sometimes I just keep adding elements until it’s a cluttered mess.
I really appreciate this quote though as I think it’s great advise in nearly all circumstances. Think, research and think again. You can’t go wrong with that!
I had a work trip that took me to Dublin and out of the office for day so that was fun. Especially as I drove home via a shopping centre and topped up my summer wardrobe. Apart from that it was a quiet, uneventful week but in a good way!

Books I have received to review:
ARCs, what are they? I’m not in the zone for them right now, instead I’m catching up on older reads.
Books I have bought:
The fantastic sounding Girl Through Glass by Sari Wilson. Yet again I’ve been baited by a ballet theme and even better it’s a 1970s New York ballet setting. I had to have it.
I want to write a love note to my library as it’s wooing me with all kinds of delicious books. And saving me a fortune!
Psst, why not join me on Instagram? I’m a wanna-be #bookstagrammer and I love taking photos of my books. It is seriously one of my favourite things to do as soon as I get a new book. I also have photos of my stationery hauls, my walks, my fitness journey and random photos of Ireland but if you only come for the books, that’s aok!
And my latest addiction is Snapchat! I admit it I’m a sucker for social media 😀 This one is mostly about my weight loss journey (PS – I hit 4 stone lost lately and am on the final stretch to GOAL! )
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
