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.
What happened on Between My Lines:
- [4 May] #FitReaders – May 20 Goals
- [6 May] The Paper Bracelet: A heartbreaking novel of old secrets from a mother and baby home by Rachael English ★★★★½

- I Wish I Lived in a Library shares Why She Loves the Book Blogging World
Books I have received to review:
- 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.
No new library books this week.
Calling that a wrap on this week. Happy Reading to all.
