The Sunday Post #35
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Welcome to the Sunday Post! But Celine, you might say, it’s not even near Sunday. Dear hypothetical reader, you are completely correct. It’s Wednesday evening, pretty much as far from Sunday as is possible. I didn’t feel like blogging this weekend, and in typical rebellious fashion, I just didn’t. Therefore, I’m doing this post now, basically because I can.
So – I had a nice week, filled with very little thesis writing, and a lot of watching Netflix and playing computer games. I’m almost completely caught up with Orphan Black (you can read about my first impressions over here), and I played my way through the introduction of the first Bioshock game. I’ve been taking some time for myself to just do fun things, before diving into the last thesis revisions before my deadline this August.
I also went to my very first pub quiz! We had quite a fabulous time, although I failed spectacularly in the literature-related questions (did you know Churchill won a Nobel Prize for Literature? I sure didn’t). We ended up second to last, even failing to win the consolation prize. It was a fun night.
This week on Nyx Book Reviews
Just the two reviews on the blog this week – one of the gigantic fantasy tome A Storm of Swords (my favourite Song of Ice and Fire book so far) and one of the feminist horror story The Stepford Wives.
This week on Irresponsible Cactus
I’m always completely fascinated to hear what goals other people have in life, so, inspired by the blog posts of others, I too decided to share my life goals. They are actually rather modest, but hop over to the Cactus and let me know what your goals are 🙂
Read this week
- The Slippery Slope by Lemony Snicket – 4☆
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – 4☆
- Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews – 4.5☆
- Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 6 by Hiromu Arakawa – 4☆
When I get in the reading mood, I REALLY get into the reading mood. I finished The Slippery Slope, a book part of my summer reading list, and then barely read anything for a few days. Then, in rapid succession, I finished Jane Eyre, Magic Strikes, and another Fullmetal Alchemist manga in just two days. Finally finishing Jane Eyre after a month really gave me the push I needed to get back into the groove.
How was your week?
