The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Last week on the blog:
- On Sunday, I posted last-last week’s Sunday Post, which was also my October 2015 wrap-up.
- On Monday, I reviewed Currents by Jane Petrlik Smolik. 4 stars.
- On Tuesday, I did the Fall Time Cozy Time book tag.
- On Wednesday, I reviewed the graphic novels Calamity Jack and The Wicked + the Divine, Vol. 2: Fandemonium. 3 stars to both books.
- On Thursday, I reviewed Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. 3 stars.
- On Saturday, I did a combined blog awards post for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, my second Liebster Award, and my second One Lovely Blog Award!
What I read:
- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. 3 stars. Did not live up to the hype at all, sadly.
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. 4 stars. A reread. I liked it much better this time around!
- The Nightmare Place by Steve Mosby. Crime thriller, and quite creepy at that!
- George by Alex Gino. This’ll be a quick read — double spaced and less than 200 pages. But I’m two chapters in and already love it.
The books I acquired:
Here are the books I acquired this week.
- The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore. I won this in the blog tour giveaway! Thank you Danielle from Love at First Page for being the awesome middleman (middlewoman?), and thank you to St. Martin’s Griffin for sending me the book! I can’t wait to read it.
The library haul:
Here’s what I picked up from the library this week.
- Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti. Hey, I did a Waiting on Wednesday for this book.
- Willful Machines by Tim Floreen. I also did a Waiting on Wednesday for this book.
- George by Alex Gino. I’ve been hearing amazing things about this middle grade book and I finally got it to read!
- The Penderwicks in Spring by Jeanne Birdsall. The fourth Penderwicks book! The first book was by far the best, but I love the Penderwick sisters and reading about their crazy adventures.
In other news…
Week 1 of NaNoWriMo is finished! I wrote more than 15,000 in the first seven days. I’m writing a YA sci-fi novel about a galactic war and aircraft/spacecraft pilots. I’m really pleased with it, even though the piloting/flying part I didn’t see coming. (I’m a pantser, so I just started writing without knowing what the heck was going to happen.) Are any of you participating in NaNo this month? Tell me your story ideas, if so! I’d love to hear what you guys are writing. 🙂
