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. The big news this week is that I’m Living in a Castle. Seriously! Well kind of.
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
Oh it was just your normal old week except I was on holidays and hence the title…
Living in a Castle
OK, I wasn’t exactly living IN the castle but I was living on the grounds! It’s an Island that is home to Waterford Castle and the estate accommodation and I was there for the night with my husband. You get a little car ferry across and it’s just so tranquil and special there. Just the one night but I came away rejuvenated and reaffirmed in my belief that I was born for the good life!
I have slipped a bit on the diet front so I’m having to recommit yet again! Not too much damage done but I need to curtail it NOW. It’s a constant battle but I’m in the zone and fighting back! I have hit my 70K steps for the week but my exercise just isn’t as intense as normal and don’t even talk about what I’ve been eating. It stops now.

Second Chance Sunday – What caught my eye. Why not go Sunday visiting?
Trish @ Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity suffers from PLEASURE DELAYED READING. Me too, I’m always saving books for later!
Bea @ Bea’s Book Nook has some bookish things she’s wondering about. Specifically about tables of contents and dust jackets on hardback books.
Kristen @ metaphors and moonlight explains why negative reviews can be a positive thing. *nods head*
Jordan @ Simply Adrift gives us 7 reasons why she won’t return to your blog. I always think posts like this make interesting reading. And nervous reading too in case you are doing any of them!
Lola @ Lola’s Reviews asks How Do you Come up with Discussion Post Topics? I think inspiration is everywhere. I just have to make sure I make a note asap so I don’t forget.
Ali @ The Bandar Blog shares the details on a Kickstarter campaign that is working on an app to #SaveTheClassics. It would have interactive features and sounds very cool.
Loly @ The Emerald City Book Review wonders How do you deal with images? My answer is with great difficulty! But PicMonkey is my go to site.
Books I have received to review:
Patching Time isn’t really a review copy as the author, Kathleen Curtin, made it very clear, I was under NO obligation to review it. But of course I will! I thoroughly enjoyed her previous book Madame Lune and am really looking forward to this one. And how Irish is that cover!
Books I have bought:
Of course I had to buy Fly Away by Kristin Hannah. I loved book one (even though it smashed by heart into fifty zillion irreparable pieces). Obviously I’m a sucker for punishment.
All my library holds came into together. I was a little mortified when I went in to collect them and half the on-hold shelf was mine! Obviously it doesn’t matter if it’s NetGalley, a book shop or a library, I just can’t do books in moderation!
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! The most popular snap this week was my planner one!
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
