The Sunday Post #11

TheSundayPost

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

It’s been a quieter week for me so I’ve had more time to post and get on with all the tags. Thanks to anyone who’s tagged me and, if I haven’t done yours yet, I’ll get round to it next week!

And now, the posts this week:

Coming Up

I’m currently reading an ARC of Girl Detached by Manuela Salvi and I’m enjoying it! It was banned in Italy and honestly I can’t see why. Manuela is handling the issues of the book carefully and sensitively. I’ll talk more about why it was banned and what the book deals with when I review it next week.

After that will be an ARC of the next installment in the Old Kingdom series, Goldenhand, and I am so so excited. I feel very lucky to have an ARC from my favourite series, although I’m still gonna buy the finished copy in October! I love the covers to this series. The UK hardback cover is going to be similar to the Clariel hardcover in that it’s pretty much a plain background (with some Charter Marks floating about) and a big embossed Charter Mark in the middle, but I also really want a copy of the usual paperback art because those painted covers are so gorgeous. The ARC cover, on the other hand, is blue with images of the bells on it (and my copy is signed!). But something tells me having three copies of Goldenhand may be a little excessive…

I still have some more tags to do, like the Pokemon Go tag and I’ve been nominated for a couple of awards which is amazing! So thanks again to everyone who’s tagged or nominated me.

Like I said last week, I have some discussion kind of posts planned but I’m trying to work my way through the tags! Once I’ve done those, I’ll get onto some lists and discussions.

And Finally

I am still all about The Temper Trap’s new album. It makes for really good writing music!

  1. Getting ARCs for series that you love is so great. And eh, you get all three copies if you want them! No amount of copies is excessive if you love it lol. And yay for catching up on tags! I did my first tag last week, so now I see how fun they are 😛

    Have a great week!

    • Hahah true! It’s my favourite series so I can’t deny myself three copies! Tags are pretty fun, but also quite difficult! Sometimes I have to run about the house looking at the bookshelves to see what I’ve read! You too!

  2. Fun tags! I agree about the dystopian one- I want MORE dystopians, not less. As long as they’re original and not just clones of something else. And I’m kind of intrigued by Vivian Vs. The Apocalypse, I remember seeing reviews of the first book but never got around to reading it.

    The Pokemon Tag sounds fun!

    • I’m glad you agree! I’ve seen a lot of people saying they’re tired of them but I could never get bored of them! Like you said, as long as there are original ideas, the possibilities are endless. I didn’t realised Vivian Versus the Apocalypse was a series until recently which has me even more excited to read it! Hopefully it’s good. And it does, I can’t wait to do it!

  3. When will censors ever learn that banning a book is actually a sure-fire way of turning that book into headline news? Whenever I hear that a book has been challenged or banned I simply have to read it to find out why, even if I normally wouldn’t have been interested in the book ordinarily.

    • I completely agree! When I heard this book was banned it definitely piqued my interest. I read The Well of Loneliness for my degree which was banned when it was originally published and that just made me more excited to read it. I think it’s stupid to censor books nowadays, we’re supposed to be living in a much more tolerant society. Thanks for stopping by!
