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. And share my update on my Skillshare classes.
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
I mentioned last week that I’m taking some Skillshare classes on writing. And I learnt that I’m doing everything wrong! Apparently I don’t use enough verbs, while I use too many adverbs and I need to kill redundant expressions. And that’s just to start with, so goodness knows how many other writing rules I’m carelessly smashing on every blog post.
I’m enjoying it though, as I’m learning so much. And already I’m reading with sharper eyes, so I feel it’s time well spent.

Books I have received to review:
I added none to the stack this week. Phew!
Books I have bought:
I bought The Daydreamer Detective Braves The Winter a few weeks ago but forgot to include it last week. It’s a cosy mystery set in Japan. I loved book 1 – The Daydreamer Detective – so am excited to read on in this series.
I grabbed more Kate Morton, in addition to a book on writing and as well as more Japanese fiction. As you see, I love an eclectic mix of books so I can vary up my reads.
Psst, why not join me on Instagram? I use Instagram to capture a flavour of my life via books, nature and colour. The most popular photo this week was my lunchtime reading.
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
