The Sunday Post #27 – I’m Back!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Hi guys! It’s been a while since I did a Sunday Post, because I took a break from blogging to focus on university. I’m still not done (I graduate in August), but I feel like I can keep up if I don’t blog too much. So instead of the customary two reviews I’ll only post one review a week until I have more time again, probably in July.
Not blogging for two weeks have been good. I owe a ton of people emails now, but I’m quite refreshed now, and feel happy tackling writing and scheduling posts. In real life nothing much interesting has happened. We went out for dinner with my boyfriend’s grandparents to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary, which was nice. I also bought a shiny shiny new tablet to replace my 2012 Nexus 7, and I love it!
This week on Nyx Book Reviews
- Review: Clash of Iron by Angus Watson
- Reading is Like Falling in Love (And Sometimes You Fall Out of Love Again)
- Review: Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn
- University Induced Break
- The Fantasy Project – 2015 Goals
I’m linking up all post I wrote since my last Sunday Post rather than just what I posted this week. Clash of Iron is a good fantasy set in an alternate Iron Age. Another Little Piece might seem like an ordinary contemporary novel; the blurb doesn’t do justice to its dark magic realism. Then I took a break – and came back to share the ten fantasy books I’m hoping to read this year.
This week on Irresponsible Cactus
Because I was low on energy I decided to do a small status update kind of post, called A Small Intermezzo. Then, this week, I shared a rather personal post – I don’t really have any close friends right now, and it sucks.
Read this week
- A Gentle Creature and Other Stories by Fyodor Doestoevsky – 4☆
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling – 5☆
- Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward – 4☆
- Waanzin in de Wereldliteratuur [Madness in World Literature] by Pieter Steinz – 4☆
- Paperweight by Meg Haston – 4☆
Comparable to the posts, this isn’t what I read in one week but rather since my last Sunday Post. I barely read at first in my break, and I needed to break out some favourites to get back in the groove, such as Harry Potter and a J.R. Ward book. Since then I’ve been reading more, even finishing a book for review (Paperweight).
How was your week?
