The Sunday Post #33 - 10th January 2016

sunday post, book blog, blogger, weekly review

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I'm gonna recap my week and give you an idea of what I have coming up plus anything else newsworthy!



This week was a wash out.....literally.

Scotland was hit by the shittiest weather imaginable and the flooding was horrendous, this of course made travelling to work fun.  It got to the point I was beginning to think someone was dropping hints for an ark to be built.  I hope everyone who was affected managed to stay safe.

Anyway on the blog side I am getting lots read, I have polished off lots of books this week and have lots of reviews planned plus they go towards my #COYER count too.

On the review front I have decided that it is not imperative to always post my reviews on the blog especially if I want to do a short review.  So in this case all my shorter reviews will be straight to Goodreads but I have started doing some mini reviews on the blog for books I love but don't warrant long reviews plus I also realise I don't need to write a War and Peace length review to get my point across.

Have a good week everyone!

The Sunday Post

Bizarre Books on Parenthood

Review of Burning Midnight which will make you think of marbles in a different light

  1. I read Hedon last year because I also got it for free and decided I should expand my horizons and try different genres. I will say it's not a bad book, but it was definitely not for me.

    I've started doing mini reviews that I've only posted on GR, generally on books that were decent but I don't feel strongly enough about to create a whole post for. I was thinking maybe I'll collect them all into one post every so often.

    1. I haven't read Hedon yet but yep it was free so worth a shot!

      I just sometimes found myself spending ages on a review when I could have spent less time and got more done so more mini reviews!

  2. Oh, I really liked Wolf by Wolf. I hope you do too! I'm actually putting what I read on Goodreads this year for the challenge so I try and write mini thoughts on there - we'll see how it goes through the year. I plan on reviewing most of these though!

    1. I love doing the Goodreads challenge though I fell short last year by a couple of books!

      Wolf by Wolf sounds like it will be a great read, hope to get to it soon!

  3. It was a shitty week here too although the worst is yet to come- we're getting snow overnight. Quite a bit apparently. there go the roads! Glad the reading is going good- I actually read a book this week and wrote a review! Hallefrickinlujah! About time... I've been slacking.

    The great thing about book blogging is there are so many ways to do reviews... whatever works. Have a super week!

    Into the Dim looks awesome! And so does Night Parade.

    1. Nothing wrong with a bit of slacking, does us all the world of good!

      The Night Parade is well worth a read, it has such brilliant imagery and a fab story!

  4. I hope the flooding will stop, Heather! We've had so much rain lately, too, and the rivers that may flood in the late spring are almost there now. I really wonder what's up with the crazy weather!
    I hope you'll enjoy your new books, have a great week ahead and happy reading.

  5. I'm just about to go to Amazon on my latest zombie hunt for any freebies I can find! Enjoy your books!

    1. Amazon is such a massive tease, all these awesome freebies that suck you in to buying a series!!

  6. We had our flooding the week of Christmas and it wasn't fun. Hope you managed to stay dry! I'm with you on the short reviews. There are some books where I just don't have much to say. If it's a review book I might store up a few books like that and do a post of small reviews but that doesn't happen very often. Have a great week!

    1. It gets to the stage where you need to build an ark!!

      With the reviews I just said to myself that I don't have to say paragraphs about a book if I don't want too!

  7. Love the funny..and so true. I hope an ARK won't be necessary. I do mini reviews called Coffee Pot reviews. And just do a few on the same post. You are right a full-length review for a classic isn't necessary..just your thoughts and if it felt relevant in 2016. Happy reading!!!

  8. I enjoyed your Bizarre Books on Parenthood post. :-) I loved The Night Parade too. I hope your weather improves! The rain here has been a most welcome sight because of the drought conditions. The flooding and mudslides, not so much. I don't envy you your drive to work in flooded conditions. That is never fun.

    I hope you have a great week!

    1. Thank you, I have great fun finding my bizarre books!! The weather is just awful but it is winter so I shouldn't complain!!

  9. Am guessing the no books bought on Amazon thing is a good thing Heather? I hope so...

    Sorry to hear about the weather though it's been nice here in Oz to get some rain of late.

    I actually just finished a book by a Scottish author I'd not heard of (or read anyway) before - Peter May? Not sure if he's popular there or not?!

    1. Yes Peter May is quite popular, I haven't read any of his books yet but they get a good write up.

      No books bought is good for the old bank balance which is always pained at this time of year!!

  10. I haven't read any of those yet- 3 of them on my TBR. Also, I am doing the Read Scotland Challenge-LOl and am hoping your crappy weather stops!!

  15. I am over the moon that you loved The Night Parade! I cannot wait the see the new Independence Day movie. I was a bit disappointed that there will be no Will Smith, but at least the website explained what happened to his character. I am getting here late, and hump day is almost over, so I will wish you a great weekend to come. Ha ha. I kind of spam commented tonight too. :)

Sorry due to lots of Spam I am moderating all comments - no spammers I don't want to buy whatever it is you are selling!
