The Sunday Post #32
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I did a Sunday Post. Graduation is within my reach, only a few more pages of thesis writing away… And after that, blissful summer break! I’m still taking it easy on the blogging front until I’m well and truly done, but it is so soon, my friends. I already have all of the plans for this summer, which include (but aren’t limited to) reading everything I can get my hands on, getting ahead on blogging, start developing a new website, going on a trip to Paris (eep!), and just do a whole load of nothing in between.
Since last time we spoke, I went to two fabulous music festivals, Rock am Ring and Pinkpop. Since the Foo Fighters cancelled their show on Pinkpop, tickets were incredibly cheap. I got to see Placebo, one of the bands that was on my top wishlist to see!
I’ve also been watching a bunch of Netflix lately – saw the entire first season of Grace and Frankie, half a season of Rules of Engagement, half a season of Supernatural, am caught up with Penny Dreadful, and have started The Tudors and Lilyhammer. My favourite at the moment is Penny Dreadful, and it’s been torture having to wait for new episodes every week!
This week on Nyx Book Reviews
House of Leaves wasn’t my cup of tea – and I’m not expecting to find a whole load of people who do enjoy it. In “Blogging While in College” I talk about how I struggle with writing my thesis and blogging in the meantime.
This week on Irresponsible Cactus
Over at the everything-and-nothing blog I reported on the happenings at Rock am Ring! It was quite the adventure, with sicknesses, apocalyptic storms, my 21st birthday, and awesome music. Oh, and of course, I made pictures.
Read this week
- Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling – 4☆
- Black Moon by Kenneth Calhoun – 4☆
- Pooka in my Pantry by R.L. Naquin – 3.5☆
- Nimona by Noelle Stevenson – 3☆
- Yours All Along by Roni Loren – 4☆
This is what I read in the last few weeks. I’m quite pleased with the quality of the books I’ve been reading lately. I’m hovering towards lighter/shorter reads (because of obvious reasons), and it has been serving me well. Black Moon was a delicious apocalyptic story with dark and weird vibes; Pooka in My Pantry a fun and cheeky urban fantasy book with a dash of romance; Yours All Along a nice romance novella with characters I rooted for.
