It’s September already! And it’s a Sunday! So that means it’s time for The Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a meme where we share what’s happened on our blogs, what we’ve been up to, and our favorite posts from around the blogosphere! It was created by Kimberly @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Book Review: The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
I may have fallen into a bit of a reading slump this week. I have managed to start two books at the same time. The first is the thriller No One Knows by J.T. Ellison and the second is Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. I am less than a quarter of the way through both of them. DNF one for a period of time because
I was reading See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt but I have to DNF one for a period of time because I keep getting the Doctor Who pear quote stuck in my head and I think it is impeding my enjoyment of the book.
I am also listening to Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Audiobooks have really been my speed this week. I have managed to listen to three. I will probably finish this audiobook early next week and I am hoping that I can finish the thriller soon as well.
What Else Have I Been Up To
This week is the first week of the Book Traveling Thursdays prompts I’ve created. If you are interested in participating in the meme, please join the Goodreads group. This month’s themes are currently posted but they will be the following:
- September 7 — Labor Day was this past Monday. Pick a book where a character has your dream job!
- September 14 — It’s Hispanic Heritage Month. Pick a book that features a Latinx Main Character.
- September 21 — Plan your next vacation. Feature a book is set in a location on your travel bucket list.
- September 28 — Johnney Appleseed Day is September 26. Show us your favorite kids, or middle-grade book.
My quest to bake things hasn’t gone that well either. For one, epic fail on ordering the chocolate for macaron ganache this week! Plus, I planned on making a pie earlier this week, but then my day job got in the way.
However, the viewing of The Great British Baking Show continues. So, clearly, my interest in baking hasn’t subsided.
Also, I just finished listening to Fight Club and now I feel like I can actually watch the DVD that I thought I misplaced, but was just backwards on the shelf (yea, weird!) again! Although, by saying that, I think I broke the first rule of fight club!
Around the Blogosphere
Beth @ Reading Every Night talks about romance in young adult fiction and whether or not it’s realistic. It’s a really good post. Give it a read, especially if romance is one of those genres that makes you a little bit wary.
Alex @ Whimsy Pages gave us some insight into her rating system. This was a very cool insight into how she decides to rate books!
Avery @ The Book Deviant wrote about what being a mature reader really means.
May @ Forever and Everly posted a list of nine things “regular people” shouldn’t say to a bookworm unless they have a death wish. It’s a good laugh for your Sunday afternoon.
Beth @ Reading Every Night discussed the pros and cons of magical realism. This is a genre I love that I love all of her points.
Ratika @ Scribblings of a Storyteller talked about her fear of feedback this week, after submitting one of her stories to a publication. I think that this is a good reminder for any aspiring writers out there.
That’s it for this week’s edition of The Sunday Post! What have you been up to this week? Let me know in the comments below!
