Book hauls, Sunday post

Sunday post #32 I've Created A Pinterest Account!

For some reason, I can’t even recall what this week’s been like! I… taught a class? Maybe? I… Ate? Maybe you remember what I did..?

All I know is that I remember a dream I had tonight, which was that I accidentally wrote a novellete, when trying to write a blog post. Go figure. I’m not even in NaNo! All of you must be rubbing off on me or something.

However! Luckily, I did this on Friday, which still counts as the glorious weekend, so I remember I wanted to ask you about your Pinterest accounts. Do you guys have Pinterest? If so, I want to follow your boards! I have started my own account and I don’t know what’s the easiest way to connect with friends there. So if you would follow me or give me your links in the comments, I’d love to connect with you! I will be pinning mostly funny bookish stuff – for now, until I figure out what Pinterest is all about and what I want to do there 😀

Here are my liveliest and most fun boards at the moment:



~ Last Week On The Blog ~

Last week we had full throttle on the SciFi Month, although I am sorry that I didn’t visit much of you other SciFi Month’ers during the week, as I was incredibly busy. I’ll try to catch up! So last week, I reviewed Central Station, a non-Western slice of life sci-fi, also wrote a touchie post that a lot of you loved about how my sister helped me become a book blogger, and also I wrote a discussion/list about the hopeful scifis I’ve read, cause we just can’t keep reading about sad futures all the time. Oh yes, I also posted a monthly recap, and although I usually don’t include Sunday posts, maybe you want to see what happened during my month, if you missed it.

~ Coming Up Next Week~

Next week I will be posting just about my only non-SciFi Month review (for a change) for Sweet Bean Paste, a very sweet and endearing book with a little twist about the things that matter (namely, illness and isolation of those who are different), then we’ll be back to SciFi Month with Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age: A Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer, which was a great book, especially if you like Stephenson, and we will finish off the week with a review of Gemina.

~ Little Book Haul ~

I was doing so great last month with the hauling. I feel like this month I’m going to have an abundance of books again, *sigh*. Here are my weekly grabs. I also include one from last week, since we… Didn’t want to talk about the haul on last week’s Sunday post. Heh.

The King of Bones and Ashes (Witches of New Orleans #1) Creatures of Will and Temper To the Edge of the Sky: A Story of Love, Betrayal, Suffering, and the Strength of Human Courage Freshwater
On Being an Introvert or Highly Sensitive Person: A guide to boundaries, joy, and meaning The Pool Boy's Beatitude The candida cure

And that’s all! Unfortunately, I haven’t been blog hopping much, so no links this week. Hopefully, next time… Share your news with me in the comments!

As usual, I’m linking up with the Sunday post meme at Kimba’s book blog and Stacking The Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews.

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. Sadly I don’t have Pintrest account – what with the blog, teaching and my own writing, I simply don’t have time. I hope it goes well – I know a lot of folks really enjoy adding images and it is something that I should consider in due course, given that I enjoy taking photos (though I’m horribly behind with those, too). Have a great week:)

    1. Figures, that’s alright 🙂 I can get the whole time thing. Luckily, the phone speeds things up 🙂 I’m also not completely sure what being on Pinterest even entails!

  2. Pinterest was my personal blackhole when I first started pinning. I used to just keep clicking forEVER, and then I would turn around, and I couldn’t believe the amount of time that had elapsed. I want to try and utilize more while I am reading. I love the boards people make to describe books, and I think it would be cool to do more of that.

  3. Dreams are so weird! I do have a Pinterest, but it’s not book related and I rarely use it these days. It is a fun rabbit hole to fall into though! I hope you enjoy all your new reads! The King of Bones and Ashes looks really interesting. Have a great ewek!

  4. While I was writing my Sunday Post, I couldn’t remember how my week was like too. I could not even remember the good news I received concerning ARCs. I do have a Pinterest account, but I can’t remember my username -my memory seems to be failing to me this week…

    I’ll have to take a look at the Sci-Fi titles you recommended. I really need to read more sci-fi.

    Happy readings & Have a great week Evelina.

    1. I haven’t read his earlier books (although I’ve seen them around a lot). The publicist mailed me asking to review, so I agreed – this will be my first book of his 🙂
      Oh dang, I don’t think I have your Instagram either!

  5. When I get to the end of my week, I often sit in a dazed state trying to focus on what I did…my reading is pretty well documented, as I keep a notebook. But everything else is so often a blur.

    As for dreams, I do recall dreaming about the Deep Scrub I was going to give the kitchen. Borrrrring. LOL. I was not eager to do it, and going through the process in my dreams was like punishment.

    Here is my Pinterest, although I haven’t done much on it lately: https://www.pinterest.com/laurelrainsnow/

    1. Exactly! I feel like the reading is the bit we document the most 🙂 funny that. I used to also write down dreams, so the actual real life would be… The least documented bit of my life 😀
      Thanks for sharing your Pinterest, I’ll see if I can follow some bookish boards of yours 🙂

  6. Sometimes I have weeks like that. 🙂 This week was quiet, which a “4 letter” word at our house, because it normally leads to a very hectic week the following week. lol… I have a Pinterest
    , and I enjoy it, but once I go on it I lose track of time.

    Have a great week ahead.

  7. Ooh Pinterest. Mine is here https://www.pinterest.com/ghill3311962/ Can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with, there is so much awesome stuff on Pinterest. And glad to see you’re going all out with SciFi Month, I haven’t posted anything for it yet but I will soon hopefully. My health issues derailed me a bit on that front.

    Yay Gemina! Loved that book, can’t wait to see your thoughts.

  8. Pinterest is so much fun. Not only for books but all the other stuff too. You can get ideas for everything over there. In the beginning, I used to pin everything without even making specific boards, but now after I started blogging, I have organized it a little bit. But I still don’t use it as much as I should. I always forget to pin my own book pins there 😛 Btw, I followed you there 🙂

    And it seems like you got a good haul this week, and I assume that most of these are from NetGalley?
    I am so busy this month, that it’s been a whole week since I posted something 🙁 But see, I find time somehow for checking your post 😀

    Have a lovely week Evelina!

  9. I’ve had a Pinterest account for about a million years now. I don’t get on it much anymore though. When I first started using it, I was super addicted and used it to pin all the delicious fatty looking recipes I could find, and then I discovered that I have a tendency to pin the same recipes more than once because they still look good but I’ve never made them (I think I’ve made a whole three things that I’ve pinned on Pinterest at this point).

    Looks like a nice haul of books for you this week. Hope you enjoy them and have a great week.

  10. I feel like I have missed so much on your site this week. I hope to get caught up today. I need to read your review of Central Station since I am still on the fence about even finishing reading that one. I am looking forward to your review of Gemina.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  11. I loved Gemina and I just cannot wait for the third one! I’m not normally a big sci-fi reader, but these books just sucked me in!!

    I really like Pinterest. I’m trying to use it more. I find some great ideas of course too. I followed you – I’m @shootingstarmag

  12. I’ve had weeks like that…those garbage men from Inside Out chucked inactive memories lol…that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Bookmarking your hopeful sci-fi post to check out, because hopefulness is something I think we all need in our lives right about now…and, you know, I like speculative fiction.
