The Sunday Post #9


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer in which book bloggers recap their week and look at what’s to come.

My Weekly Recap

Sorry I haven’t posted much this week but I’ve been ill so haven’t felt up to blogging! I’m a lot better now though and I’ve had the chance to plan some posts so look out for those!

Posts this week:

Coming Up

I’ve just finished Illuminae which was breathtaking. One of the best books I’ve ever read, hands down. Find my review for Illuminae above!


So, what to read next? I’m actually not sure. I try to alternate between YA and adult books so it’s an adult read up next, but I’m torn between The Little Red Chairs by Edna O’Brien or The Fireman by Joe Hill. To be honest, The Little Red Chairs was a bit of a gamble and an attempt to get me out my comfort zone. The Fireman is much more my usual thing, but I’ve heard critics raving about The Little Red Chairs and it has a gorgeous cover. Anyone got any suggestions on which one to go with? Let me know!

I got tagged twice this week for the ‘Books with a Purpose’ tag and the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ tag so thanks to bookstraveller and icebreaker694 for those, I’m excited to do them!

I also have a couple of posts planned to do with some of my YA favourites so keep your eyes peeled for them!

Lastly, I’m off to the Young Adult Literature Convention in London next week and I’m extremely excited! Expect a re-cap post on my adventures there and, if you’re going too and spot me, come say hi!

And Finally

I haven’t been listening to much music this week so here’s another link to my Writing playlist on Spotify that I’ve now updated to 103 songs. Feel free to give it a listen if you need some atmospheric music to help you write. And if you have a writing playlist, link it in the comments!

  1. Glad you liked Illuminae! I’m pretty excited for Gemina, especially since it takes place on the Heimdall. I was wondering all through the book what was going on there, or if they would arrive, so now we can see what’s happening from that angle. And I love that cover of Bright Smoke, Cold fire- something about the cloaked women looks very mysterious!


    • Yeah! They were continually referring to Heimdall during the book and now we’ll finally get to know what might have happened there after the Kerenza attack. And it’s such a cool cover isn’t it! Really creepy and mysterious. Hopefully the story is the same!


  2. Sorry to hear you’ve been under the weather. Glad you’re feeling better! Illuminae was wonderful, and the cover is my all-time favorite cover ever. Can’t wait for Gemina.
