The Sunday Post - Edition 1

Sunday, May 08, 2016 Geraldine 0 Comments

I'm starting to do The Sunday Post! It's such an awesome meme, honestly, because it allows you to get to know other bloggers well. And I figure that you guys should know a bit about what's going on in my life, get to know me a bit better :) For anyone who didn't know - The Sunday Post is a meme that Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and other important life things, alongside bookish things! 

So...hopefully you enjoy my first The Sunday Post! Thanks Molly @ Molly's Book Nook, for really persuading me to start doing it! 

Books I’ve Read/Am Reading:

Hatred Day by T.S. Pettibone - I'm finding this really hard to get into, to be honest. I requested to join the blog tour, about two months ago, because the premise sounds interesting - but the writing is a bit passive and drab for my tastes so far. Hopefully it picks up!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas - I'm kind of alright with this book? It's nothing special - in fact I'm finding the characterisation a tiny bit iffy. But anywayyy hopefully it get's better!

I'm getting back into the swing of book blogging! 
The Sunday Post - Edition 1 - THIS POST! ^_^

Awesome Posts I've Read This Week

I've read a couple of awesome posts this week...but I've forgotten to save them! I'll definitely have this section ready for next week though! 

What I got up to this week:


It was actually alright this week. A lot less stress, because all the mid-semester exams and assignments are over. In fact - I even got a midsemester exam mark back! And I scored an 81% in my Chemistry midsemester exam! I'm super proud of that mark - because I remember not having enough time to study for it, and being super stressed (I had another two assignments and three exams in that same week). 


I've been having a rough week at work. I have a retail position in a chain store, and it's such an awesome job, it really is. Thing is, I have a casual position, and I've just been making so many mistakes in the past week, and I'm worried that I won't get any more shifts. 

I also tutor a couple of high school students, and this week, it was a bit hard, because the girl I'm tutoring wanted my help with an assignment. I'm a high academic achiever - but that usually came from exams. Like, my marks from assignments were high yes, but I always talked to other people, who would give me ideas for the assignment >.< 


I've been pretty sick for the second half of the past week. It's been really annoying, because this is a recurring illness, and whenever the illness flares up, I just want to sleep all day, every day. It makes it hard for me to keep up with study and work - so I've been struggling a bit. 

TV shows/Movies I Watched

Didn't watch too many this week - the internet was really bad at home - but I did watch the most recent episode of Modern Family! I rewatched many episodes of The Mentalist, and it was nice to see how Patrick Jane pulls off all his tricks again ^_^ It's been a while since I watched it last, so it was like watching a new show all over again - I had pretty much forgotten everything! 

How was your week? Let me know in the comments below! 

Keep reading and loving books!
