The Sunday Post #19

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.

I’m sorry that it’s been another week where I’ve been pretty absent. However, I’m here to update you.

The last two weeks I was busy due to being horrendously ill, my boyfriend visiting, my Dad’s birthday and my job at Lush.

But this week? Well, my room is being completely redone now that I’ve moved home again permanently from uni. Last time I had my room done I was about 5 so it’s in desperate need of a makeover. So I’ve been busy with that, but also…

We’re adopting a cat!

She’s only a year old but has had a very rough start in life. Her owner neglected her and pretty much left her to fend for herself. She’s also had one litter of kittens already and miscarried a second litter. But now she’s hopefully going to have a much better life with us! We’re picking her up on the 15th and I am so excited!

So yes, I’ve been busy with my room and a cat. And because I don’t want my hamster to feel like he’s not getting any love, here’s an autumnal photo shoot of him (he’s a poser):

Anyway, enough about my animal obsession, here’s the posts from this week:

coming-up-2

I’m still reading my ARC of Gilded Cage by Vic James. I haven’t read since Tuesday and I’m having withdrawal symptoms! But this book is really great so far.

And for the last billion years, I’ve been telling you all that oh I’m definitely going to read A Darker Shade of Magic next… But Gemina is calling my name. I even had a dream about it. A dream about a book I haven’t read. I think it’s a sign.

Anyway, we’ll see.

I also have a few posts planned! It’s just about finding the time to write them at the moment as next week is going to be even busier, especially since I’m visiting my boyfriend at the weekend. So please just bear with me! Normal service will resume in a couple of weeks, I promise.

INHEAVEN are a band I’ve been keeping tabs on for a little while now. I really like their sound – it’s a little punky – and I’m hoping they release something full-length in the near future. ‘Bitter Town’ is my favourite song. Check them out here:

  1. Aww cute cat. Sorry to hear about her rough start but at least she has a good home to come to. Cute hamster pic too. 🙂

    I hope Gemina is good, I need to get to that too. Now that it’s out and I keep seeing reviews, I want to read it for myself. Have a great week!

  2. Ahhh my gosh, such exciting things happening in your world that’s so awesome! Here’s hoping your soon-to-be new addition will be just as happy with you as it sounds like she will be–so many kudos to you guys for adopting!

    Also, here’s hoping you find time to read soon! I’ve been on a slight book reading hiatus so far in November, myself–I need to get back at it!

    Here’s my Sunday Post, if you’re interested in taking a look. No worries if you’re not, though! Either way, happy book-ing to you in the near future! ❤

  3. What a beautiful cat!! We had two cats when I was growing up, and both were rescues who’d had rough starts in life. My partner has terrible cat allergies, so my cat lady does are all over, such sadness! Fortunately librarians tend to be cat people, so I have plenty of friends with cats I can bond with. 😉

    • Aww thank you! I think it’s lovely to rescue animals instead of buying them from breeders, especially if you can give a mistreated animal a better life! Haha oh dear, at least you have all your friend’s cats, your cat lady days can live on vicariously through them! 😉
