The Sunday Post : Get your bookish news – Hello May!

May 3, 2020 meme, The Sunday Post 23

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. Can’t believe I’m saying this but Hello May!

Between My Sundays – what happened this week

Hello May!

Not that it really matters as everyday seems just like the one before at the moment. Luckily the weather has been lovely here, as that makes lockdown so much easier. And from Tuesday, our exercise limit will be upped from 2k from home to 5k from home, so it will be good to explore some new walking routes.

I don’t know about anyone else, but my mood is all up and down from this pandemic. Somedays I’m really positive, making plans and feeling great. And then the next day, I’m just blah. I suppose we just have to get through it day by day.

Selfcare – Miracle Morning

I’ve decided to reinstate a morning routine, roughly based around the book The Morning Miracle that I reviewed a few years ago. Back then I had a pretty great way of starting my day, but I seem to have slipped. Working from home has resulted in me sleeping later. But now that it’s lovely and bright in the morning, I want to start enjoying this peaceful time again. Rereading my review reminded me that I thrive on a slow but productive start to my day. Do you have a morning routine?

    I love anything by Jenny Colgan and I am going to look into The Miracle Morning. Have a great week!

    • trish

      I’ve only started reading Jenny Colgan in the last year, but I love her books. They are real feel good reads.

  2. Laurel-Rain Snow

    Oh, your books look good! I am eyeing that Robotham book…and The Wife Stalker, by Constantine. I think I’ve read some of her books. Off to check them out.

    I also go up and down in my moods. I can’t sleep late, because the breakfast tray comes at 7:00 a.m.! But I am actually a morning person, once I get up and start moving around.

    I have to take things day by day, but if I plan something different somewhere in the day, I feel better.

    Hang in there, and stay safe and well.

      I’m looking forward to both of those books too. I’m a morning person too, but like you I have to get up and move for it to kick in. The snooze button is the devil!

  3. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    Any kind of routine I had died a couple of weeks ago. 🙁 Getting one back would do a lot of helping with my mood, I think. I’m up and down a lot too, somedays fine, others not so much.

    I have an ARC of 500 Miles From You as well. Fingers crossed it’s a good one!

    • trish

      I’m really looking forward to 500 Miles too! And yes I do think a routine adds a bit of comfort in unpredictable times.

  4. Lark

    All your new books look awesome, but especially the Robotham. And my mood has been very up and down during these pandemic days, too. One day I’m okay, and the next, stressed to the max. Hope you have a good week! 🙂

      I’ve only realised that the Robotham is the second in a series, so much get the first book first!

  5. Berls

    I LOVE miracle morning, I have used some version of it for years and everytime I feel my life feeling meh, getting back on track with my mornings helps a lot. Good luck with that!

    Where do you live again? I feel like everywhere has a better approach than the US where the guidelines on social distancing are so loose and not at all enforced. I have no daily limits on where I can go and no one enforcing the most basic of rules. But I’m staying home anyway (& going a bit crazy).

    Stay safe and have a great week!

    • trish

      I’m in Ireland, the rules are very defined and that does help. And we have a roadmap on when everything will reopen, slowly phased in between now and Sept. But people are getting a bit more lax now, as everyone just wants to get back to normal. But it’s not a normal world.

  6. Lindsi

    I’ve been trying to get into a new morning routine, but it’s SO HARD. Husband and I stay up too late after the kids have gone to bed (watching movies, reading comics, etc.), and then sleep until the monsters wake us up. When I had to take our son to school, I’d get up at least an hour beforehand to have time to myself before starting the day, and I really miss that.

    With work-at-home I’ve been keeping to a set schedule to separate the work from home time. Enjoy your latest stack of books 🙂

  8. Bea's Book Nook

    When I first started staying home for the pandemic, I tried to keep a routine. That didn’t last but I slowly developed a new routine. It could use improvement, but it’s something. Good luck with yours! Every day feeling the same doesn’t help.

    Happy reading, and have a good week.

  9. Nise' (Under the Boardwalk)

    The library will be one of the first places I visit! I miss it. Having a routine works better for us and we try to keep it when possible. We also keep the new to the bare minimum to stay positive. Being able to get outside and walk is a definite plus!

  10. Katherine

    I need to look at Miracle Morning. I am NOT a morning person but starting off right definitely impacts the whole day. The Jenny Colgan book looks good! I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve read from her and want to read more. Hope you’re having a great week!

  11. Belle

    Ooo, The Morning Miracle sounds really interesting! I know I need some type of morning routine (although my weird quarantine, sleep schedule has made sure that I don’t really have mornings 😅). Thank you so much for mentioning my post, Trish – it mean a lot 😄💛. I hope you have a pleasant May!
