The Sunday Post #2

the

 

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by The Caffinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to recap the week, and also to look forward to the next week. Basically, updates!

I had an unprecedented change of plans for my Sunday Posts! With the way I schedule my posts, I’m only able to do these posts every 3-ish weeks. So, that means that everything linked and written about on these posts will be for the last 3 weeks.

Recent News:

I joined a book club!! It’s called Keep It Diverse Book Club, and they have a Twitter, Instagram, and a Goodreads group. Their first book for the month of October was The Girl from Everywhere, which I was lucky enough to be able to get from my school library at the beginning of the month! The review isn’t scheduled until the end of November, but the review will be up on Goodreads when I finish it!

I also started doing a new weekly meme, one of which that I’ll actually be doing every week. It’s Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks Diversity Spotlight Thursday, of which the first three posts were posted!

Before I get into what I posted, because I haven’t done a Sunday Post in a full MONTH this one might be a bit long. But don’t worry, the later Sunday Posts will only be for three weeks each!

    • Aha, usually I am too, but I’ve been trying to expand my horizons a bit, and thought this sounded right up my alley. It was even better because the first book (The Girl from Everywhere) was a book I was interested in reading. The November books (Under a Painted Sky) isn’t something I’d normally read, but I’m willing to try! You have a great week too!

  1. I belong to a book club in my city, and I totally agree with being pushed to read outside of my comfort zone – I typically read the same kinds of books, even without realising it, and being a part of a reading community has really helped me branch out and try books that I might not have even considered previously. It’s always good to get a bit of a push outside of the norm sometimes! 🙂
