The Sunday Post #1

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week and showcase books we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

Personal Notes:

September is finally upon us! Fingers crossed I can get some quality reading done this month, especially since I read just two books in August (and one was a script so that was pretty short). But quality and not quantity is what counts and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed both the books I read, which included Adnan’s Story and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Expect to hear more about my thoughts on both of those in future posts.

I’ve been pretty busy lately, check out my post concerning my recent absence if you are interested in why. I’ve been adventurous this year and I’m kinda proud of myself for that. There are even more adventures to come before the end of the year and I’m totally ready to take them on.

The only thing that went wrong this week was when my iPod had a shakey moment on Saturday. It got stuck in headphone mode and then it started turning off and on randomly. I was so scared that it was broken! My iPod is the gadget I use the most and is so important to me as a very audibly driven person (is audibly driven a thing? I’m gonna call it a thing). Anyway, I did a software update and it seems to be working properly again now. Thank goodness.

Moving on, let me give you a quick insight into some blog related things from past and future, as well as a dash of what I’m up to at the moment.

Last week on the blog:

Coming up on the blog:

  • A mystery manga review.

There might be more too, such as some photos from my time in London last week. But I’ll have to wait and see if I get a chance to write up a few things before I go on holiday to Wales. I wrote a list of thirty post ideas on Friday so there’s lots of content in the making that I’m excited to share over the next few weeks, including discussions, podcast spotlights and personal posts.

I’m also working on a blog event that centers around books that contain characters with magic powers. I’ll be posting more about that soon in case anyone else is interested in taking part.

What I’m Reading:

  • The Graces by Laure Eve

I’m not very far into this one but the dark nature of it feels very fitting for the season.

  • The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley (reread)

This is such a comfort read for me. I love it more every time I read it. I recommend this book to anyone who likes stories set in Victorian England with a hint of steampunk, a dash of Japan and a light smatter of romance. I can’t wait to see what this author will come up with next.

By next Friday I should be reading Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas. ALL THE EXCITEMENT FOR THIS!!

Fun bits of news:

Crystal Maze is coming back! Crystal Maze was a game show in the 90’s. I’ve only watched reruns but I’m telling you that TV show is gold. When it was first reported that the show was coming back for a one off charity special, David Tennant was the rumoured host. However, the rumour proved untrue as it was recently revealed that comedian Stephen Merchant will be taking on the role of host.

In more bookish news lots of books are coming out next week, but these are the ones I am particularly looking forward to:

  • Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas
  • Henry and the Guardians of the Lost by Jenny Nimmo
  • Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists, Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, and Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide by J.K. Rowling

A YouTube video I enjoyed recently:

In closing:

I haven’t done a Sunday Post post (?) before so this might be a one off thing or I might do it occasionally. Let’s see how it goes  🙂

    Welcome to the Sunday Post! That British Olympics video looks fun, I’m going to have to watch that one.

    The Watchmaker of Filigree St. sounds good, i like the mix of Victorian England with steampunk. And Empire of Storms of course- I need to read those.

    Fingers crossed the iPod’s okay and the update worked. There’s nothing worse than technological issues!

    And well done on being more adventurous. I’m pretty sure most of us could take more chances!
