The Sunday Post #36
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Hi everyone! It’s the first Sunday Post after my two-week blogging break. Time flew. I can’t believe I have to go back to school in just two little weeks. I’m just starting to relax! The good news is that I finally handed in my thesis. Now I have to wait for the final judgement of my teachers – will I get to start my master’s degree on September 1st, or not?
In less serious news, we went to Paris! The weather was great and we had a good time, though very sore feet. I wrote a post about Paris, so go check that out if you’re interested 😀
This week on Nyx Book Reviews
- Review: The Whitstable Pearl Mystery by Julie Wassner
- Why I Read English Books
- Review: Jackaby by William Ritter
I actually had something else planned as a Wednesday post, but then I read an article from a Dutch publicist, and I just had to share my thoughts. In “Why I Read English Books” I talk a bit about how circumstance got me into English rather than Dutch books. Other than that, I review two books – a cozy mystery called The Whitstable Pearl Mystery and a YA book with the premise “Sherlock meets Doctor Who”, Jackaby.
This week on Irresponsible Cactus
The aforementioned Paris post! I’ve been so lucky to be able to travel so much this past year. If only next year would be so fantastic travel-wise.

This is everything I read since my last Sunday Post on the 27th of July. Usually I don’t have time to read on vacation, but because of some nice meds, I could actually read on the bus to and from Paris. I really enjoyed Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, a science-fiction classic. The other pleasant surprise was Writing Tools, a non-fiction book on writing that has sensible and practical writing advice. It’s a book that I would recommend anyone who writes, from journalists to authors to bloggers.
