Sunday Post: Jan. 12th 2014

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.

The above image is in honor of finishing The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls which you can expect a review of this week.

Today's the last day of Bout of Books 9.0 and I have one more book up my sleeve. I'm so happy I've done so well this week. It's good that last week was the first week of Spring Semester (which went really well) because otherwise I don't think I would have been able to read so much. It's back to a regular amount next week.

I've made a lot of scrambled eggs for my personal challenge and I was thinking of what I should learn to do next. I'm thinking of making pancakes this week. I've also got down to 8 minutes 1 second for running for .52 miles. I haven't been exercising as much as I've wanted to. I mean I went biking yesterday but still. I'm trying to get down to 6 minutes by the end of the month.

Last Week on the Blog:


I posted My Bout of Books 9.0 goals and I've been updating it every day since as well Books That Bring Out the Reader in You.

I reviewed Matilda by Roald Dahl, Inkheart by Cornelia Funke, The Rule of Thirds by Chantel Guertin, The Savages by Matt Whyman, and The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers.

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: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige and In a Blink by Niki Thorpe.

Posts/articles/videos I enjoyed: 



Plans for Next Week:

I've finished The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls so you can expect a review next week. I might be able to do a review of Peter Pan because I'm almost done. I got a bunch of books from NetGalley that I'll be starting soon as well as some others that I haven't got to yet. I also got a book to review from an author that I'll be reading later this month.




I'm starting See Jane Run later today.

    1. Thanks! I like The Sunday post picture but I don't like how it pops up everywhere like all I do is Sunday posts :P Makes it more fun to try to find something different for each week. Dorothy Must Die better be EPIC.

    1. I'm only doing well with two personal challenges I set out for myself. I haven't drawn at all like I need to do. And thanks! Last time I did a read-a-thon it didn't go quite so well.

      Yes! And everyone seems to love Dorothy Must Die too.

      I haven't started unfortunately. School's kept be busy but I'm starting tomorrow so hopefully it goes well! ~ I definitely will try to get my hands on Canary.
