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. I had a big bookish moment this week, my first 5 star book of 2017!
Between My Sundays – what happened this week
“Get busy living or get busy dying.” ― Stephen King,
I picked some gorgeous roses from my garden, they are an old-fashioned variety that smell gorgeous. Just looking at them made me happy. And of course I had to ‘gram’ them! Such a pity they don’t last long.
Clean Sweep ARC May 2017 – updates
I’m crawling through this challenge. Newer ARCs keep distracting me, and I can’t count those! What can I say, I’m a mood reader, and reading lists don’t cut it for me.
The Hourglass – read and review posted
Trivial Pursuits – read and review posted
The Whole Thing Together – read and review posted
Tattletale – read, need to write review
Second Chance Sunday – What happened here:
- [15 May] The A to Z of Handy Tips for BookBloggers – L is for Length of Reviews
- [16 May] Top Ten Tuesday: Mommie Dearest…books with crazy mothers!
- [18 May] The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares ★★½
Second Chance Sunday – What happened in the blogosphere:
Girl with her head in a book wonders Does She Read Too Much? An interesting post, as I sometimes wonder do I rush though books too quickly nowadays and not take enough time to reflect on what I’m reading.
Behind Green Eyes demonstrates How she reads so many books. It’s always a matter of priorities isn’t it? We make time for what’s important to us.
Rebel Mommy Book Blog reflects on the problem of Too Many ARCs Too Little Time. I could have written this post word for word!
I wish I lived in a library wonders How Do You Rate a Classic? Personally, my ratings always relate to how much I enjoyed the book. I like to keep it simple!
Books I have received to review:
Thanks to NetGalley and Aurelia Press for Size Zero. A thriller set in the fashion world? Yes please!
Books I have bought:
None, thankfully as I have lots of arcs to get through!
Obviously I’m dying to read Into The Water after loving The Girl on The Train.
And Elizabeth Wein is one of my favourite authors for YA historical fiction. Her books blow me away, so expectations are high for The Pearl Thief.
So, that’s my week wrapped up. Happy Reading to all.
