Sunday Post โ€” February 17, 2019

February 17, 2019

Because I don’t have enough weekly memes going on already, let’s add another one! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I blame Sionna for this because her Sunday Posts are always so fun to read and they looked like fun to write, too. โ™ฅ

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news about the past week, reading recaps, new hauls, and more.

The past week wasn’t too shabby of a reading week for me! The closer we get to spring, the more I feel like I’ve shaken off my annual January reading slump (thanks, seasonal depression!). I read some books, got some review copies, and added way too many books to my TBR (but we won’t get into that).

this week on the blog…

next week on the blog…

  • Gates of Stone โ€” Angus Macallanย (fantasy review)
  • Try a Chapter Challengeย (monthly challenge)
  • who knows what else? I’m hoping doing this post every Sunday will help me get better at planning out the next week’s schedule!

a week in the life of…

Outside of the blogosphere, this was a long week for me. I was still getting over the last of being sick, had some big planning events going on at work, and got way too little sleep in the first half of the week.
On a less stressful note, I bought an exciting new astrology book, read my tarot cards for the first time in way too long, and had some great quality time with my spouse and little one. (Ooh, and our state tax refund meant a little retail therapy, so I have a Torrid order and a new pair of prescription sunglasses on their way to my house!)

    My Sunday Posts help me remember what I’ve read and really do remind me of my ARCs. Hopefully it will help you too! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Fingers crossed!! Something’s gotta give, anyways. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I re-organized my ARC TBR spreadsheet last night and I think it might help, too. Previously, I had them all sorted by release date, so the books I was most excited for would end up sneaking up on me when I’d intended to read them weeks or months ahead of time. Now I’ve decided I’d rather – if this makes any sense at all – have a few overdue “low priority” ARCs, than almost be late with everything including “high priority” ones. So now, I have it sorted by quarter (Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, etc.), and within that quarter, by priority. I have no idea if this makes any sense at all but I think it’ll help. ๐Ÿ˜€

        I think I’ll have to start this. I’ll have more ‘late’ reviews, but at least I will be reading the ones I’m interested in before I start losing interest or have to rush through them before their due date.

          Right! Because that’s the thing for me, too, is the rushing. It’s been lessening my enjoyment of books that I know if I had read in my own time I would have ADORED.

    Welcome to The Sunday Posts! I find them super useful to see what other bloggers have posted that I might have (read: probably) missed, since I’m so slow at blog hopping.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries February 18, 2019 at 8:37 pm

      Thank you!! I’m hoping it will help me with that, too, because blog hopping during the week is really hard for me – most of my blog hopping actually happens on Sundays, it seems like!

      Thank you, love! <3 I'm feeling mostly pretty good today but I had an awful migraine last night that rendered me totally useless, so now today I just want to stay home from work and do ALL THE THINGS. Alas, storytime and craft time awaits, haha! And thank you, happy reading to you too! โ™ฅโ™ฅ

    That Storm & Fury cover is so pretty not going to lie! And yay this is actually my fave weekly meme post to read so glad you are joining in. Good luck with the work events!

      Isn’t it gorgeous?! I know a lot of people have been fussing about it because they feel like it ripped off… The Bird and the Blade? Maybe? (I can’t remember for sure.) But I don’t think they look THAT similar, and besides, so many covers do favor each other… I’m rambling. ANYWAYS, I’m excited to read it. And thank you! The work events, thankfully, went FINE. I had a big training day Monday, big meetings all day at work Tuesday, and then yesterday we had a therapy dog come to see the kids which is always a little bit stressful because, you know, dogs + kids; there’s always potential for someone to get scared or to behave poorly. But it went great, no issues at all, and now today and tomorrow’s shifts will hopefully be quiet and relaxed. ๐Ÿคž
