The Sunday Post #17
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
As announced last week, I went to Bruges! It was super pretty. I’m posting pictures and more about the city over at Irresponsible Cactus next week Thursday (go check that blog out if you want to read more about the trips I make and other random geeky stuff).
After the trip I took some long overdue time to relax and read. That wasn’t very long-lived, as I’m currently in this stage of my thesis where I really have to hammer down what it is exactly that I’m researching and IT’S SO HARD. You’d think coming up with a valid research question would be easier. But, alas, within the humanities, nothing is ever so easy as it seems.
Next week is carnaval time, a catholic-inspired holiday where people dress up, play loud music, and get drunk. I absolutely hate it (probably has something to do with the fact that you HAD TO participate every year at school), so I’m in full on avoidance mode. Lucky for me, I’ll be escaping carnaval-land to go see the band Falling in Reverse on Wednesday. If I manage to beat my thesis into shape, next week is promising to be a good one.
This week on Nyx Book Reviews
- Review: Ticker by Lisa Mantchev
- The Five Stages of Not Knowing What to Post About Today
- Review: Symbiont by Mira Grant
Steampunk and good old science-fiction are represented this week. Symbiont is the second book in the Parasitology series, and I found it to be just as fabulous as the first book was. I’m also talking about the struggles of coming up with a topic to blog about, something I’m sure many of you can sympathize with!
This week on Irresponsible Cactus
A small ode to the world that made part of my childhood – Pokémon.
Read this week
Not a lot of reading this week, but what I read was great. The Jules Verne book is part of one of my 2015 reading challenges, and Made You Up is a book for review. Most of my time was spent reading a J.R. Ward book of 550 pages long that I haven’t managed to finish yet. I’ve been really enjoying my books this week though.
How was your week?
