The Sunday Post 17/01/16

Sunday PostThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Alas, the ending is in sight! I handed in one big boy of an essay this week and will have to finish the other by Friday. And after that, my dear friends, there lies an oasis of DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for at least one whole week. There will be reading and Netflix and all the sleep. It’s going to be wonderful.

I’ve been thinking about my blogging schedule, and I might mess around with that a bit. It would mean a lot to me if you could take a minute to answer these four questions regarding my blog. They’re multiple choice, so you’ll be done in no time at all. Thanks!

This week on Nyx Book Reviews

I got The Girl from the Well from my absolutely awesome Secret Sister as a present and read most of it in a bath tub in Milan. I feel like I have a special connection with this book now, ha. And it’s a good ghost story featuring Japanese mythology, so definitely check it out!

Read this week

Kate Karyus Quinn has been on my radar ever since the fantastic (Don’t You) Forget About Me. It was one of my favourite books of 2014, so I was thrilled that HarperCollins was so kind to provide me with a review copy of her newest book, Down With the Shine. This book has quirky characters, a relatable voice, humour, and just the right amount of bleakness. Its release date is still a while off, but I recommend keeping your eyes out for this one if you enjoy young adult novels with a magic twist.

How was your week?
