The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – supermoon and missed events

May 10, 2020 meme, The Sunday Post 14

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 my bookish news. This week for me was all about the supermoon and missed events.

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

Supermoon and missed events

I’m always fascinated by the moon, and follow the moon phases in my moonology diary. This is my first year having one, but I’ll be ordering next years copy as soon as it’s available. I use it to help me set goals (new moon), and to release what doesn’t serve me (full moon). Following this has been a very comforting and predictable ritual, and I love feeling so in synch with nature.


This week we’ve had to miss out on two events that we were really looking forward to. I know we’ll get to do them next year, but it’s still a bit disappointing.

  • The Nick Cave Concert in Dublin. I had gotten the tickets for Tom as a Christmas present, so now I feel bad that he had no present. Except the anticipation of concert which has gone on for much longer than I ever imagined.
  • The Pieta House Darkness in to Light walk – a 5k walk that starts before dawn and you literally walk into the light – with a focus of raising money and awareness around suicide, self-harm and mental health

We’ll catch them both in 2021, fingers crossed. Assuming the world is back to normal by then.

Books I have received to review:

The setting in The Bird in the Bamboo Cage has me very excited, as it’s not one I’ve read about before – occupied China in 1941. And Hazel Gaynor’s books always reel me in.

Purchased Books 

All books are linked to Amazon UK, and are affiliate links.
  • The Orphan’s Gift was a 99p bargain, and I’m storing it for a day when I need a good cry!
  • Haven’t They Grown was only 87p, and I couldn’t believe it as Sophie Hannah is one of my favourite suspense authors and this book only came out this year.

Library Haul:

No new library books this week.

Calling that a wrap on this week.  Happy Reading to all.

    I hope you get to enjoy all of those missed events!

    I love Sophie Hannah’s books, and I’m eyeing Haven’t They Grown.

    The Orphan’s Gift looks like a treasure. Thanks for sharing.

    It’s really a bummer to see all the events that are being cancelled! But, something to look forward to for next year!

    I’m sorry to hear about your post-poned events. I’ve had some of those too – and some that were just flat out cancelled. It’s a bummer, especially since I’m a big planner when it comes to dealing with my mental health, etc. I keep trying to find ways to stay busy at home and look forward to things still though.

    What a bummer about the Christmas gift – but who could have predicted this outcome? The thought was great and hopefully you’ll get to do it in 2021, along with the walk (which sounds amazing!).

    The moonology diary sounds so neat. Is that pattern of goal setting /release part of the journal you use or a program you developed on your own? I’d love to learn more!

    Have a great week and stay safe!

    I read Hazel Gaynor’s last book and loved it so wonder what this one will be like. An interesting view of China 1941.

    It’s tough having to miss events. Hopefully, there will be another opportunity to go again. Today would have been my nieces wedding. She decided to get married and have her parents and closest relatives attend virtually!

    I love that feeling of being in tune with nature as well, and there’s something about the moon. That’s neat that you do that. I was disappointed this past week because I wanted to see the meteor shower earlier in the week but the weather didn’t cooperate…

    Hopefully things are back to normal next year or nearly so and we can enjoy events like those again. It is so disappointing to miss thos things this year!

    Take care and have a nice week. 🙂

    Oh I love the idea of the moonology journal! I’ll have to look into something like that for myself and I think my 10 year old would find it fascinating as well. I’m intrigued by that Hazel Gaynor book. I love her books and that setting. I’m so sorry about the postponed events and how frustrating that one was a gift but the thought was there. I hope you have a wonderful week and thanks for the mention!
