The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – I’m back but broken!

November 4, 2018 meme, The Sunday Post 32

Welcome to The Sunday Post, 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.  Guys, I’m back but broken!

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

I’m back but broken!

I had fallen out of love with blogging, and had just been publishing my reviews on my FB page.  And that was going great, but I signed up to a blog tour for this week, and so came back to my blog.  And I had forgotten just how much I loved actual blogging, and all my blog features that I can add to my reviews.  It felt like coming home to my own little space, that I had decorated just the way I wanted.

As for the broken.  I’m on week 6 day 6  of a broken humorous.  Believe me there is nothing funny about it.  I’m healing ok, but have to wear a brace and sling 24 hours a day.  Yes, even to bed, notice I don’t say to sleep.  Now I’m counting the days to my next appointment at 8 weeks, and hopefully I can sling that sling and brace into the bin forever.  Fingers crossed, and at this stage I can actually cross them, a few weeks ago I couldn’t!

But the upside is I’ve loads of time to read, as I can’t partake in my usual hobbies.  Believe me, I’ve never been so grateful in my life for my love of reading.

Writer’s Week in Waterford

Last weekend, I attended a reader’s and writer’s festival.  The first event was a talk about the new stars of Irish literature. So interesting and about books that I would never have picked up.  But after listening to the authors, I now will.  My next stop was the bookshop, where I browsed happily, and bought new books.  And then I attended a silent reading party in these really quaint vintage tea rooms.  Such a surreal experience. About 60ish people reading, sipping their drink and complete silence.  It was both mad and fantastic!

My Reading Week

Close to Home is set in Oxford and I’m racing through it with my heart in my mouth.

The Book of Love is giving me all the feels.  It’s like a sweet but bitter love story with all the realism of normal life.

The Perfect Family is my first book by Shalini Boland and won’t be my last.

    Yessss.. welcome back Trish! 😉 I’ve been loving your FB posts, but it’s awesome to have you back here also. I’m glad to hear you’re almost at your 8 weeks.. I’ll keep my fingers crossed about the sling!
    It’s so funny how different things are in different countries.. We have lots of patients with humerus fractures, but we tell them not to wear slings! It probably has pros and cons both. Anyway.. I hope you can take the sling of soon. 😉
    That reader’s and writer’s festival sounds amazing. And that silent reading party.. Wow!! Fun but probably a little strange too.
    Have a great week and Happy Reading!

      It feels lovely to be properly back Maureen. I know re the sling, I have been doing loads of my own research too and the advise is very varied. I can’t wait to be rid of the sling and brace now, I feel so restricted!

  2. Michelle @Because Reading

    Welcome back!
    That feeling of being home with your blog is such a great feeling. That happened to me a few weeks ago. I remembered why I love reading and blogging so much.

    I saw your arm, I am so sorry that happened. I will cross my fingers that 8 weeks goes by very quickly for you.

    OMG, I never heard of a silent reading party. I want to do one! They don’t have anything like that in the US, at least not where I live. My have to talk to the librarian about that.

    Hope this week is a good one Trish! Happy Reading!

    • trish

      Thank you Michelle! A bit of me was thinking I do silent reading parties all the time at home, why would I bother! But it was really cool.

  3. Tonyalee

    I’ve seen you’ve been super active on Facebook! I hadn’t realized you weren’t posting here anymore, but I was also on a hiatus so. LOL

    Why does it seem like it’s taking FOREVER for your arm to heal?? I’m sure you feel the same way HAHA

  4. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Welcome back, and I love the cozy feeling of actual blogging. When my laptop broke down, and in the interim period (a week!), I only had my iPhone for getting around…and it’s not the same!

    I hope you heal soon…there’s nothing worse than something physical that intrudes on the things we love…not to mention the pain.

    • trish

      No using an iPhone just doesn’t cut it for me either. I feel like I’m back in my old routine, and it feels lovely.

    Broken humorous, oh no! I’ve broken my legs three times in my life…and broken bones are the worse. Three years ago I sprained my hamstring and that’s when I was like, “I better have my kids, but anything worse happens to me.”-Hence me having my two year old.#sundaypost

  6. Angela

    Yay, I’m so glad you’re back! Fingers crossed everything goes well at your next appointment! I loved Surprise Me, I hope you do, too!

  7. Kathryn Trask

    So happy you are back blogging, while I do glance at FB I don’t hang out there for books, mainly family and groups. The readers writers festival and the silent read and tea sounds perfection for a book lover.

  8. Greg

    That writer’s event, and the silent reading party, sound fabulous! How fun. I imagine it would be easy to get carried away by the whole tea room thing. 🙂

    Glad you’re back to the blog!

    I’ve added Close To Home to my TBR, and The Perfect Family as well since I liked the other Shalini Boland book I read. I have The Visitor too on my Kindle waiting for me 🙂

      Thanks Greg, it feels good to be back. The Perfect Family was my first Shalini Boland book, and I was impressed.

  9. S. J. Pajonas

    First of all, I’m glad to see you’re back! And I’ve followed some of your broken arm woes on FB but I didn’t realize it had been going on for so long! Yikes! I bet it’s a super downer to have to wear the brace all the time. 🙁 I would be doing nothing but reading as well. I hope you get good news at your next appointment!

    I’ve been seeing your Facebook posts regularly, but I am happy to see you’re also back to blogging now :). Sorry to hear about your broken humorous, that sounds painful and annoying to have that sling on the whole day. I hope you found some good books to read at least. That silent reading party sounds pretty unique and awesome to have all those people reading in silence.

      Very annoying Lola, but hopefully I’m near the end. The silent reading party was so cool, I’ve never experienced anything like it.

  11. Tizzy

    Welcome back! Glad to hear you have rediscovered your love of blogging. Sorry about your broken humorous though. I’m guessing it must be horribly painful based on how much it hurts to just bump your elbow. The readers and writers festival sounds awesome and I love the idea of the silent reading party-introvert heaven!

    Enjoy being back! Good luck on the getting rid of the sling and brace. That would be really annoying. Reading makes everything better. Anne – Books of My Heart

  13. Jade @ Reading with Jade

    I’ve been keeping up with your broken humorous via Twitter – and your such a trooper! Hopefully all will be healed and well very soon. Some great incoming titles you have; I’m really looking forward to Cecelia Ahern’s short story collection… Although I don’t think I will get to it until the new year now. The silent reading party sounds amazing!!! I hope you’re having a great week!
