The Sunday Post 13/09/15
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Hello! I’m having a hard time believing another week went by. This week was dominated by a take-home exam about European Values – can you believe they’re making us take an exam in the third week of school? I’ve barely even learnt anything!
I have very little personal news to share, except for the fact that sleeping has become my new hobby. While I usually saw sleep as kind of a given, right now it’s become something I have to actively make time for. It’s an interesting development brought on by my severe lack of free time right now, though I have to admit I really do appreciate my bed time now.
Did you know that I keep a dream diary? I usually remember everything I dream upon waking, and I decided it would be fun to keep track of the most interesting and weird dreams I have in a notebook. I might share a few of them soon, because they are quite funny.
Picture of the week
This week on Nyx Book Reviews
I put on my bad-girl shoes and wrote a rather opinionated piece on why I think it’s unhealthy to buy uncontrollable amounts of books. If you don’t agree, however, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this! I also reviewed the first book in the Psy-Changeling paranormal romance series. I was expecting it to be pretty smutty and sex-centered from the reviews and the cover, but the story was surprisingly good, and I thought it was more sensual rather than sexual.
Read this week
- The Owl Killers by Karen Maitland – 4☆
I’m honestly glad I even have this one book to list here, because I have had very little time to read for fun. Scientific articles on modernity and academic books on Europe, sure, but sadly no vampires or science-fiction or unicorns for me.
The Owl Killers is a book that I’ve had on my shelves for a very long time, and I decided to pick it up on a whim. While the characters of the book were a bit bland, the medieval world is fantastic, and I noticed I kept thinking about the book after I put it down. It touches on large concepts like religion, rape, trauma and self-determination. I’m looking forward to reading the other books by Maitland that I have on my shelves.
I’m reconsidering this part of my Sunday Post, because I might not have a lot of books that I read to show you guys every week. I’ll have to think some more about how I’m going to keep it relevant.
How was your week?
