Hey, y’all! How’s last week so far? I’m back with another Sunday Post and Sunday Salon. The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer and The Sunday Salon is hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz. In this post, I share with you some updates with regards to my personal life-from books, movies, music, games, and many more.
Last week, I’ve told you the tale of my procrastination. And as you all know, the saga continues. I’m almost finished with the first draft of my paper. I still have to revise it and do another paper. Thank god, my Physics professor extended the deadline for my Physics paper. So I just need to pass two papers, one for my Self and Society class, and one for my Science, Technology, and Society class. I’m hoping to be finished with the first drafts for the two papers by Wednesday. Then revise it until next week.
Health-wise, I’m feeling okay. I’m getting back my blogging mojo. Thank god! Hopefully, it improves in the following weeks to come.
Book I’m Currently Reading
📖 Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan (20%)
I’m actually enjoying the book even it has only a few dialogues. I remember this book in my TBR waaaaay back in 2016. I just picked it up due to a buddy read. So far, this reminds me of The Selection by Kiera Cass with all the selection of concubine happening. The only difference is that it’s just more diverse than that. Hoping to finish it by the end of the day.
Books I’ve Read Last Week
📕 Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Review: Listened to the audiobook while reading the book. It was awesome. The only problem I had with it is I feel disconnected with the characters due to the format.
📕 The Perfect Escape by Suzanne Park
Review: There were lots of promising the book has to offer-from zombie contests, bratty prep kids, and absentee CEO father. However, I feel that it was all over the place.
📕 All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover
Review: Comparing it with other romance books, this one is very different since it talks about infertility and how there’s a stigma attached to it. Infertility aside, there were times I felt that some parts were repetitive.
Books I’m Planning to Read Next Week
📚 Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
📚 The Bethrothed by Kiera Cass
📚 House of Dragons by Jessica Cluess
📚 Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevado
📚 Other Words for Home by Jasmine Warga
Last Week’s Posts
I only posted two blog posts last week. I forgot to post one for Top 10 Tuesday. Again, I’m still getting my blogging mojo back. Here are the posts for last week in case you missed it. Posts are linked to the image.
Want to know my first five-stars read this 2020? It’s none other than Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This book is a sequel to Aurora Rising, a book I also highly enjoyed. Read my review to know the reasons why I highly love this book. Or you know, chat me so we can fangirl together ’bout this book.
I’m afraid of big books, and I shall not lie. I’m feeling you all people who’re afraid to start big books because I feel that way too. That’s why I created this post because, man, size really matters when we’re literary speaking.
Next week, I’m hoping to post at least 3 blog posts, and maybe do more review posts since I’ve read many books, but haven’t reviewed them on my blog. My planned schedule:
Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday – Reasons why I love Science Fiction
Wednesday: Book Review – The Bromance Book Club by Lissa Kay Adams
Friday: Book Discussion – What is the right way to read?
Saturday: Book Review – Anna K. by Jenny Lee
I am also planning to post my April Monthly Wrap Up and April Book Haul someday this week. So stay tuned for those!
Favorite Posts Last Week
This week I share with you some of my favorite blog posts that I’ve read around the blogosphere. Featured images are lifted from the original creators, so be sure to check out their posts and give all the love they deserve!
The tarot recommendations of Robin from Paperbacks and Planners are something I’ve been looking following for a while now. This week I picked the middle card which is The Fool card. And for that, I’ve got Manhattan (Becker Brothers #3) by Kandi Steiner and Hearstopper by Alice Osman. Tbh, Heartstopper is one of the books in my TBR. Maybe it’s the way of the universe telling me to read it soon.
This post from Way Too Fantasy talks about obligations book blogger usually faces. Since starting this blog, there are lots of times that I feel I’m obligated to read more books like other bloggers out there, thus, I was stressing about balancing my academics, blog, and reading books. So I totally can relate to this post.
Most of us track our reading progress via Goodreads. But when was the last time have you checked your personalized Goodreads’ book recommendations? This post of Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner reminds that we need to check it out from time to time. Though there’s a huge chance that we won’t be interested in some books, you never know when you’ll find a nice, rare gem!
How was last week for you? Read any good books? Let me know!
