Sunday post #1 Let's sum up the reading week


So I’ve decided to link up with the Sunday meme at Kimba’s book blog and have a short update every sunday! At least for now.

This week has been incredibly tough work-wise, so I couldn’t post at all on the blog T_T but I’m hoping next week will be better.

~ Reading this week ~

The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women Children of the Different The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth, #1) 4 3 2 1
I have mostly been reading The Radium Girls this week, it’s one of the most engrossing reads ever, a true story as well. Children of the Different are still on hiatus (as I listen to this on audio). I’ve also started The Fifth Season, but so far, it’s not really grabbing me so much. And 4 3 2 1 has been on the Currently-Reading shelf for a while now as it’s a hefty one (I’m loving it though, one of those slow reads).

~ Finished this week ~

Nope. Just didn’t happen T_T

~ Blog news! ~

Kate Moore, the author of The Radium Girls has agreed to do an interview with me! Super excited about that and it will be coming up sometime this month, as the book comes out in May. I’m very excited, as it’s my second interview and I just did my last one last week.

~ Planning to start next week ~

Swans Are Fat TooThe Breedling and the City in the Garden (The Element Odysseys #1)Esther Waters
Swans Are Fat Too has been lying around on my Kindle for ages, ever since I read another book of this author that I really loved. Might as well finally read this, as it’s also promising to be a light read. Breedling and the City in the Garden is one for my Blogger Shame challenge, and Esther Waters I would be reading with the Goodreads Victorians! group.

How has your week been and what are you planning on reading next week?

I’m Evelina and I try to blog about books that matter, with a bit of fun there too! Disability and equality will be topics you see a lot, but there’s also a lot of scifi, fantasy and… GIFs. I’m also the proud founder of #ARCsAnonymous.

    1. Lexxie, hi 🙂 you should check out some of Michelle Granas’s books – the first one I read was Zaremba, and it was so lovely, one of those… smart romances. So subtle in the romance, so smart and strong in the character building. Absolutely loved it 🙂 I am hoping for the best in this next book of hers. By the way, I’ve talked to the author, she is really nice 🙂
      You have a great week too, thanks!

  1. Sorry you’ve had such a rough work week :-/

    Ok, you know what’s strange? I just looked at a book on NG this week and saw that it was about a girl who finds glowing paintings and travels back in time or learns about the past or something to do with the radium girls. And I thought that was the book you had because I remembered you talking about that last week, but now I see you have something different and what are the odds of two books about this popping up in one week?? But anyway, I’m glad you’re enjoying the book, and that’s awesome that you’re going to do an interview with the author even!

    1. Oh my gosh, wow :0 what ARE the odds?? Do you still have the link for that book? Now I’m horribly curious 😀
      Thanks 🙂 yeah, it’s actually a sad book, but man. You just need to know some of the sad things :p

  2. Welcome to the Sunday Post community Avalinah. Glad to be able to know you better through this post. I had a tough week, reading wise, too. I haven’t been feeling well lately but I’m getting better now. I’m looking forward to reading your interview with Kate Moore. I know it will be fantastic. Enjoy your books. Have a great week. 😀

  3. Sorry this week was rough for you! Welcome to the Sunday Post! 🙂

    You have a lot of great reading options this week! Good Luck with the interview those are always fun to do. I haven’t done one in a while.

    Have a great week, Evelina! Happy Reading!

        1. Yeah, I also feel it’s slow to start.
          Hm, I don’t know, I don’t like DNFing because it makes me feel guilty 😀 but you’re right.. I guess we can’t really let ourselves waste time on something we don’t enjoy, right? Life’s too short for that.

    1. I’m glad you’re curious. It’s a good topic to be curious about! I think you might still be able to find it on NetGalley if you wanted? It’s just… so intriguing to read. Those girls were actually called ‘the living dead’ and ‘the girls with radioactive bones’ in the ACTUAL PAPERS. Can you believe that? If that’s not interesting to read about then I don’t know what is 🙂
      I hope you have a great week too, BTW, and thank you for visiting 🙂

    1. Thank you for dropping by! Glad you are reading the Radium Girls, and I hope you can peek into the interview as well when I post. It’s such an interesting book! Will be very curious about your review as well 🙂

  4. Welcome to the Sunday Post! 🙂 And congrats on the interview- looking forward to it. Radium Girls does look interesting, and so does Breedling & the City.

    Oh and thanks for the recent book recommendation on Goodreads as well. I’m trying to use GR more and they’re always appreciated. 🙂 Have a great week.

  5. Hi! It’s awesome that you’re joining The Sunday Post, and I really like your blog!

    Ya, I know what you mean. Sometimes life gets too hectic, and reading/reviewing/blogging gets pushed to the back burner. Hopefully you’ll have some more free time this week. Happy reading, and I hope that you have a wonderful week! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely words 🙂 hopefully I get time to pre-write some content sometime soon! Well, you know how it goes 🙂
      Have a wonderful week too!

    1. Ha, I see a lot of people are getting interested in the Swans 🙂 I’ll be sure to post a review soon then!
      Have a great week, thanks for dropping by 🙂

    1. Thank you Laura! Glad you have Radium Girls on the list, I’ll be sure to drop you a link when I have the interview up 🙂 thank you and have a nice week!

  6. Oh, I do hope work gets better.

    I actually haven’t read any of those books! Maybe I should put some of them on my list.

    I did read some really awesome books this week: The Takedown (Corrie Wang), Geekerella (Ashley Poston), Walk On Earth a Stranger (Rae Carson). And I read about half of Welcome Home, the adoption anthology by Eric Smith, which I’m very excited about! It’s one of the better reading weeks I’ve had in awhile, which was quite nice.

    Oh, and congratulations on the interview! I still haven’t done any author interviews. 🙁 But I’ll look forward to seeing your post!

    1. Ooh, I’ve heard a lot about those. Recently read about the Takedown, but it seems like it would trigger me a lot. I bet it was really strong, wasn’t it? And I’ve heard of Geekerella as well.
      Congrats about your good reading week 🙂

  7. I am not planning any book to read since I think I am moody reader. I will let my mood decide what I will pick on my TBR. Congrats for interviewing with author! hope it went well btw, Swans Are Fat Too is interesting title. I probably will check it on goodreads to decide whether I will add it or not to my TBR. Happy Reading Avalinah!

  8. I’m so glad you’re loving The Radium Girls! I’ve only heard good things thus far. 🙂 I look forward to your future interview. I personally love author interviews. Yay!

    I am just about finished with The Kite Runner, and I’ll be starting Anne of Green Gables shortly. Something completely different to help me counter the complete sadness of The Kite Runner. Very important.

    1. Anne of Green Gables! I want to get to that as well. Although you know, I’ve heard it’s kind of sad too xD
      Glad to see you again, BTW 🙂
