Sunday Post: 05/03

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


A fairly quiet week last week, both on the blog and in real life.  Although got a phone call from my doctors mid-week and apparently I’m now of the age where I should be having an annual check-up! Not sure how I feel about that!

Next week is looking up though, as me and a few friends are heading to the coast for an overnight stay to celebrate their birthdays. They all have birthdays sometime in March, so this is the easiest way to celebrate them. (That’s our excuse and we are sticking to it!) I’m also taking the opportunity to use up the some of this year’s holidays, to tag a day either side. So I’ve got two four-day weeks ahead of me. 😀

Although it does mean that I’ll probably be giving next week’s Sunday Post a miss.

Last Week on the Blog

Around the Web

A few great links for you this week.

Emma Gannon’s wonderful post about Generational Divide, a reaction to yet another article knocking You-Tuber Zoella and her book-club. Incidentally, here’s my reaction to the original article 😉:

Wei Ming Kam writes on the importance of representation, in her article On The Carnegie, Bookshops, and Malinda Lo’s Ash.

This wonderful post from a teacher, about when author SF Said visited her school. If you ever wondered about the power of books and/or author visits then this is the post for you! And lastly Robin Stevens reveals the cover of her upcoming book: The Guggenheim Mystery (a sequel to Siobhan Dowd’s The London-Eye Mystery. It’s a gorgeous cover, you need to go take a look!

    Four day weeks are always good! Enjoy your trip! I do like the look of Unconventional, the setting of a convention sounds fabulous and definitely has my interest.

    I should look into Illumicrate.

    I’m intrigued by The London Eye Mystery. The title and author name are familiar to me so I’m guessing I’ve already decided I need to read them! 2 four day weeks sounds amazing and what a great idea to consolidate everyone’s celebrations! Sounds like a lot of fun. Have a great week!
