The Sunday Post #34
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
This past week has flown by in a blur of blogging, writing, books, and TV. I always feel vaguely adrift during summer because I don’t have a sense of different days or a schedule to adhere to. I visited my college apartment for the last time, preparing it for summer break in which I can’t tour around by train for free.
I’m terrible at just letting go and doing nothing for a while. Do you guys ever have any issues with that?
This week on Nyx Book Reviews
It feels so good to have Nyx Book Reviews back in order again. I’ve returned to my preferred posting schedule – two reviews, a feature/discussion post, and a weekly wrap up. This week I’m sharing my thoughts on two very different books, Paperweight, a YA contemporary dealing with eating disorders, and The Miniaturist, a historical novel. I also make a nice list of the books I’m hoping to read this summer in Summer Reading List.
This week on Irresponsible Cactus
I’ve been watching a whole bunch of Netflix lately – one of which comes highly recommended by almost everyone. Orphan Black is fast-paced and quite fun, and this week I’m sharing some of my initial thoughts over at the Cactus.
Read this week
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey – 4☆
- Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh – 3.5☆
- Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 5 by Hiromu Arakawa – 5☆
- Thor, Vol. 1: Goddess of Thunder by Jason Aaron – 4☆
Somehow I feel like I haven’t done any reading – yet I finished two novels, a manga, and a graphic novel! I would definitely call that a really good reading week. Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was fantastic, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Slave to Sensation was a lot better than that horrible cover would suggest, and Fullmetal Alchemist is quickly becoming an obsession. The Goddess of Thunder was great, and quite easy to get into for someone who hasn’t really been following the Marvel universe that much.
How was your week?
