Reading Updates


I am moving closer to halfway through Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult and I am also halfway through the audiobook of A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman! I am enjoying both, and I am really hoping I can finish Small Great Things soon.

What Else Have I Been Up To

Seriously? It’s already Sunday? Where did this week go? It’s been a pretty light week. I’ve been working a lot, trying to meet some deadlines.

When I wasn’t working I was watching The West Wing to unwind a bit. Somehow, this show has really started to save my sanity.


Around the Blogosphere

Swetlana @ The Caffeinated Bookworm Life wrote a great post about how book blogging has influenced her reading habits. Honestly, I think that we’ve all been there and this post is really relatable.

Holly @ Nut Free Nerd gives some advice on how to read classics. As someone who has enjoyed a couple of classics, I think this advice is sound.

Carrie @ Cat on a Bookshelf discusses the constructive criticism and book reviews.

Stephanie @ Adventures of a Bibliophile wrote up a piece about nonfiction books that every college student should read. I haven’t read many of them, and now I am feeling very underread.

Morgan @ The Bookish Beagle developed a syllabus for history fictional worlds course. It’s amazing, and now I wish that all of those books existed. Like now!

The Book Prophet gives some advice on how to write diversity into your stories the right way.

Callum McLaughlin recommends some great short story collections you may want to check out. I am always intrigued by short story collections but I always have a problem reading them all the way through. So many of these look good though!

Mia @ Beautiful, Inspiring, Creative…Life gives some tips on how to write a kick-ass about me page. It has me wanting to overhaul mine!

Fox @ Fox on an Island is also writing up an advice post on how to cope when things don’t go according to plan. I think that this is advice we can always use and we constantly need a little reminder to step back and breathe.

Liesje @ A Thousand Lives posted a list of things that make her happy! Some of these items would make my list too, especially the library, music, and creativity.

Analee @ Book Snacks gives you some ideas for how to make a book blogger’s day! To which, I say: “Yes! All of the above!” Now let’s nod our heads slowly in agreement.”

Ed. A. Murray wrote a little piece about “yellow journalism” and why it isn’t going away anytime soon. It’s the 19th Century version of clickbait and it’s pretty interesting.

Tabi @ Busy Bee gives some advice on how to take better blog photos. Who can’t use a tutorial on that?

Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek talks about discussing your blog in real life!

That’s it for  The Sunday Post this week! What have you guys been up to?

    1. There are some great lines! Like in one episode a character says: “one day I am going to get called into the situation room and it’s going to be good news like! We discovered buried treasure or it turns out there’s life in Andromeda and they think we are doing great!”


  1. I’ve been hearing a lot about Small Great Things over the last few months – I’ll have to keep an eye out for your review! Generally speaking, I really like Jodi Picoult, but some of her books are a bit hard to read. The last one I read was The Storyteller… that was rough.


      1. It’s really good! But definitely hard to read, once you get to know the characters’ histories. I can’t remember exactly what the blurb says about it so I won’t give anything more away! 😉


  2. Thank you for giving me another shout out this week, it’s highly appreciated! Oh and also, as you got me all hungry for cookies last week, I finally bought some at the beginning of this week (because I was too lazy to do the baking…) and have been munching away at them every day! I actually ended up finding a new favorite cookie, so thank you! 😉
