Sunday Post: Weekly Wrap-Up (6/4/14)

The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

This week on my blog:

March Reading Wrap-Up
All the books I bought/received in March
Review of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

What I read this week:

Red Rising by Pierce Brown     
Impostor by Susanne Winnacker    
    Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott 

Each of these books were great, I loved them all. They are each the first in trilogies and I now have to wait an eternity for the sequels :-(

Books I bought/received or borrowed this week:

I didn't buy, recieve or borrow any books this week, but I did win a book through Goodreads First Reads on Thursday, so that should turn up before the month is out. I do have 4 books checked out from the library:

Cress by Marissa Meyer
Sever by Lauren Destefano
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi

Next Week on my blog:

I am going to be trying out a few memes starting next week and these will hopefully help me to get more involved in the book blogging community.

Monday - It's Monday! What am I Reading?
Tuesday - Review: Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Wednesday - Waiting On Wednesday: After The End
Thursday - Life of a Blogger: Food
Bookish Thoughts Thursday
Friday - Friday Finds
Saturday - Review: Impostor by Susanne Winnacker
Sunday - The Sunday Post

This week in real life:

This week was the first week of the Easter holidays from university and I used my free time wisely. I caught up on a ton of TV shows I've gotten behind on, watched some movies, read, worked on my blogs and basically lounged around a lot, not doing much at all. Walking Dead Season finale left a lot to be desired, I found it very anti-climactic, but still looking forward to season 5.

Next week in real life:

I have to get started on my final essay for university and I need to make a start on revising for exams I have coming in May. I also really need to start packing, I may not have found a new house yet but I don't want to leave packing to last minute because it's stressful. Otherwise I should still be able to get lots of reading and writing in. Oh! and Game of Thrones is back = me super, super excited.

I hope everyone else had a great week and that next week will be equally as great or better.


  1. I have read Wither from The Chemical Garden Trilogy, but I haven't read the others yet even though I loved the first book! :) Red Rising is also on my TBR list, I just discovered it yesterday and it sounds a m a z i n g! Happy reading and have a great Sunday!

    1. Hey Sofia,

      OMG you have to read Red Rising as soon as, because yes, it is amazing and Pierce Brown is now my new author crush ;-)

      I read the first two books in The Chemical Garden trilogy last year, so I hope I will be quickly reminded of what happened when I start Sever or else I am going to be lost.

      Thank you and a great Sunday and hppy reading to you too.

  2. Natalie, I envy you because you'll read Bloodlines for the first time. *sights* I hope you'll love it to pieces. And I heard that Caress is great.

    Good luck with your essay.

    Glass @ Ja čitam, a ti?

    1. Hey Glass,

      I know what you mean about reading books for the first time, sometimes I hold off for ages on reading some books because once I've read it, then I've read it and re-reading is just not the same. If Bloodlines is anywhere near as good as Vampire Academy then I am certain I will love it.

      Thank you for your luck, I will need it.

      And thank you for following me - you are my first follower :-)


  3. Congrats on your wisdom and on your book haul, have a great week :)

  4. Thank you Iza, though I don't think I have ever been accused of being wise before ;-)
