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

Hey all! I hope you’re not stuck underneath a huge pile of snow. We’ve had some cold weather here, but barely any snow at all. I love how quiet the world gets when there’s snow, so maybe (hopefully) there will be some more of it in the upcoming weeks 🙂

Last week I shared this short questionnaire about my blog. If you haven’t filled it in yet, please do! It’s been super interesting seeing the answers. Thanks so much <3

This week on Nyx Book Reviews

A while ago I read the science-fiction bestseller The Martian. Though I can see why people love it, I didn’t adore it as much as the majority. I’m also answering the second round of questions for the Rosemary and Rue readalong we’re having. The book is pretty exciting, very high-paced urban fantasy. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of it.

Read this week

You know who the best Marvel super hero is?

It’s Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!

She’s seriously awesome, has the best sidekicks, and cannot be beaten even by the worst baddies. Unlike all of the gritty noir comic heroes, Squirrel Girl is upbeat and funny and cartoony and full of awesomeness. This is the second volume, and though I wasn’t as blown away by it as the first, but it was still very cool.

How was your week?

    I’ve heard raves about The Martian but it just doesn’t shout at me to be read. 🙂 I might see the movie though… and I’ve been looking for a good urban fantasy to try, maybe McGuire is the one. I’ve heard good things about her books…

    It’s been cold here too, but we’re not in the path of the blizzard so that’s good. It all went east of us. I agree about the hush of snowfall, one of the few things I like about winter. Freshly fallen snow is a neat thing. 🙂

    Yeah I just read a raving review of The Martian, it’s not my cup of tea but it’s getting alot of viewing! Good luck this week.

    No (new) snow here! I really hope you get some before winter ends.

    Ahh, thanks for the reminder that I need to read Squirrel Girl!

    Squirrel Girl looks like my kind of super hero! She sounds awesome and I love that sh’es upbeat. I’m not big on graphic novels but I’m going to have to make an exception for that one! I’m torn about reading The Martian. I feel like I should read it since my husband and myself have spent so much time working in the space industry and I’ve heard it’s accurate in that regard BUT it just doesn’t pull at me. I may break down and do audio but we’ll see. Have a great week!

    We just got almost a meter’s worth of snow. Ugh. I hate winter!

    Squirrel Girl sound like a lot of fun! I’ll be curious to see you think of The Martian. I have seen the movie, but haven’t read the book. I hope you have a great week!
