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. I have a fair amount to share today–but my brain is also very sleep-deprived, so  don’t expect a ton of detail!

Currently Actively Reading

I started Good Omens in the wee hours of Readathon and I’m really enjoying it so far. I’m also enjoying listening to Furiously Happy, which I’ve previously read, on audio. The real-time reading of A Discovery of Witches will wrap up on October 31st.

  1. Wow! Sarah, you CRUSHED the readathon! I am super impressed!!! I didn’t participate because I’m intimidated (how on earth did you manage to stay awake for 22 of the 24 hours?! WOWZA!), but I am always a bit jealous when I read posts like this. I can’t wait to read your update posts!

    I haven’t heard of the House Cup Reading Challenge– but I’m super glad you’re making progress for Hufflepuff! That’s my house too. #HufflepuffPride

    Keep up all the great work! I love following all your reading challenges. They are always an inspiration!
