The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received and share news about what's coming up for the next week ahead.
So more work concerning school has come up this week which I expected. I wish it wasn't so soon but school comes first. I do have a bunch of plans this week. I want to get some reviews done before I delve deep in homework. I've read a couple of great books I think you guys might enjoy.
Yesterday was madness. I went on a biking/canoeing adventure with my parents. I haven't been biking in a year and I haven't gone canoeing in even more time. I went biking around my block and park and at the last stretch i was dying only because my dad said to keep going when I really wanted to take a drink from a water fountain. My face gets really red when I'm in the heat and I'm exercising so this was a bad idea and I knew it. Next time I'm not listening to him... We then went canoeing and took about an hour before we got the canoe out in the water because the keys wouldn't work. It was nice when we were out there although my parents talk way too much.
I also found out cats are nocturnal which deeply upsets me. How did I not know this!?
How was your weekend?
Last Week on the Blog:
I reviewed all the children's books I wanted to but not Twigs. I reviewed Shakespeare Bats Cleanup, a verse book; Candy and the Cankersaurus, a dinosaur picture book; and Stumble Trip Fall, a highly recommended children's book.
I finally read Gameboard of the Gods! I can't wait to tell you all about it.
Around the Blogosphere (a.k.a. my to-read list is now larger):
Some books I added to my to-read list that I can't wait to get my hands on: The Paradox of Vertical Flight, Pieces of Me, and Fearsome Dreamer.
Some posts I enjoyed: Picture Book Review: One More Candle (Books for Kids) and Review: How to Hide a Lion by Helen Stephens (Waking Brain Cells).
Voting for the Miami-Dade Libraries will start on the 10th. Some libraries will only be able to be open 16 hours a week!
There are now 5 major publishing houses. What do you think about the Penguin Random House merger? I worry about Penguin becoming too big. They will "publish 15,000 new titles a year, about one-quarter of the world’s English-language books." - I know there can never be a monopoly but I just don't trust it.
Plans for Next Week:
I'm reading two great books right now: One for The Murphys and 13 Little Blue Envelopes. Me and my mom are starting up another Mother/Daughter Book Club Read: Choker. She's been reading a lot of YA and MG books which makes me happy. I've proven her wrong!
I plan on reviewing Gamboard of the Gods, One for the Murphys and possibly Twigs. I would like to be able to review three books no matter what but we will see what happens this week.
