The Sunday Post #18


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 boyfriend came to visit on Friday and just went home today so I was busy all this weekend and haven’t done any blog hopping. I’ll try and catch up next week! However, it was lovely seeing Mark as we’re currently doing long-distance after uni ended. It’s difficult but we’re managing it!

Anyway, that’s my little update. Here were the posts this week:


I finished my last book in the Halloween Read-A-Thon, The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich, which was sadly a bit of a disappointment. After that, I started my ARC of Gilded Cage by Vic James. I’m only a few chapters in but I’m really liking it. The atmosphere is great and the characters are intriguing, not to mention the opening was especially good.

After that, I was planning to start A Darker Shade of Magic but An Ember In the Ashes has been looking at me from the bookshelf. I’m really tempted to start that instead. However, I’ve had A Darker Shade of Magic longer.

I also got Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) this week and whilst I’m itching to read it, I’m going to be patient and read some books I’ve had for longer first. Whether I can actually be that patient is another thing entirely!


Instead of music this week, I’m going to post a film trailer! Specifically, the new teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I am so so excited for this film, and even more excited for the Avengers Infinity War films when the Guardians will meet up with the Avengers. That’s going to be one strange encounter.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

  1. Your Read-a-Thon list of books are awesome! I read An Ember in the Ashes and loved it. I also started the Gilded Cage and liking it so far 🙂 Looks like you had a great week!


      • Yes! I love reading other bloggers’ reviews after I finish reading a book 🙂 This book was a buddy read and I had to put it on hold. We will start reading it again after Nov 8. I will look for your review after I finished with this book 🙂

  2. Hmm, those are some excellent books there. 🙂 I need to read the Shades of Magic books and an Ember in the Ashes but my poor TBR is out of control! Hopefully I can get a handle on it one day, but until then I will be constantly reminded of all the great books I haven’t yet read 😉

    Yay for the BF visit and glad you took time out for it. 🙂


    • Haha I know the feeling! There are so many good books I want to read but I can’t afford them all or keep up with them! There are some series that have been out for years that I haven’t read yet!
      Yeah it was lovely to take some time out and chill with my bf, long distance is hard! 🙂
