Sunday Post: October 15, 2017


The Sunday Post is a weekly event hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a way to wrap up your week, share news/book hauls, and consolidate links to your posts & other posts you’ve liked throughout the week. It’s been almost a month since I actually wrote one of these, so hold on to your hats!

Weekly Reading Updates

Books Finished Since 09/17 (Last Sunday Post)

I loved Hidden Figures & now I can’t wait to watch the movie. I also adored One Dark Throne. I already reviewed Otherbound (see link below) & my review of The Ninth Circle will come on release day (October 22).

Reading Challenges Since Last Sunday Post

  • Diversity Bingo 2017
    • Science Fiction/Fantasy with Disabled MC: Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
    • Diverse Non Fiction: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

It’s really getting down to the wire on my yearly reading challenges. In retrospect (and I also realized at the time), 4 year long challenges may have been a little much. I’m determined to at least finish Read Harder (and I’m hoping Dewey’s Readathon next weekend will help with that!).

Currently Actively Reading

Loving Vs. Virginia is my first book for the House Cup Reading challenge, so I’m excited to get to it today. I picked up Chicks Dig Time Lords again last night. My goal is to read 1 essay a day!

  1. I’m almost finished with Rebecca – it’s awesome!

    This week I’ve got to finish my book group book, since our meeting is Sunday. It’s Revolutionary by Alex Myers, historical fiction about a real-life woman who dressed as a man to fight in the Revolutionary War.

  2. I don’t know how you do this week after week! Way to keep the momentum going. I can relate to the idea of 4 yearly challenges being too much — I only had two and it was overwhelming! Keep doing what you can while making sure reading stays fun.

    How on earth do you manage to read four books a week? My mind is blown.

    1. I actually didn’t read all 4 in one week. I read them between 9/17 and 10/15–so in about a month. The only way I ever finish that many books is if there’s a readathon & I do little else. Life is usually way too busy!

      As for reading challenges, I’m definitely going to try & finish Read Harder and read as much as I can for Diversity Bingo–but I know I’m not going to finish all 4 (or even 2!). Thanks for checking in 🙂

      1. Well THAT makes more sense. I just ignored the date you associated with the reading updates section. O_o Of course. As a bibliophile, I am not expected to have strong reading comprehension. 😉

        Oh yeah– reading challenges can strangely sneak up on you! I think I’m more effective at month-long reading challenges. I prefer the year-long ones, but I find that I struggle to keep them at the front of my mind for long enough to complete them. I wish you all the best completing what you can!
