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 asΒ the glorious weekend, so I remember I wanted to ask youΒ 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 πŸ˜€

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



~ Last Week On The Blog ~

Last week we hadΒ 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, IΒ reviewed Central Station, a non-Western slice of life sci-fi, alsoΒ wrote a touchie post that a lot of you loved about how my sister helped me become a book blogger, and also I wrote aΒ discussion/list about the hopeful scifis I’ve read,Β cause we just can’t keep reading about sad futures all the time. Oh yes, I also posted aΒ 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.

Central Station by Lavie TidharΒ my favorite gift ever
scifi hope about humanity October stats fever

~ Coming Up Next Week~

Next week I will be posting just about my only non-SciFi Month review (for a change) forΒ 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 withΒ 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 withΒ 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 theΒ Sunday post meme at Kimba’s book blogΒ 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.

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:)

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.

It’s so easy to get lost in all the social media. Have a great week.

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!

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.

I keep seeing The King of Bones and Ashes everywhere. I love JD’s books, and one of these days I’ll get to this. I don’t do Pinterest anymore, but I am really into Instagram these days!

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/

Sometimes I have weeks like that. πŸ™‚ 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.

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.

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 πŸ˜› Btw, I followed you there πŸ™‚ And it seems like you got a good haul this week, and I assume that most of these are from NetGalley? I am… Read more Β»

I have a Pinterest, but I’m totally still trying to figure out what to do with it. Here’s my link: https://www.pinterest.com/lampshadereader/ –I couldn’t find the link to your profile.

Anywho, hope you enjoy your new books! and have a great week. πŸ™‚

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… Read more Β»

I love Pinterest. Here is my account: https://nl.pinterest.com/maureensbooksbl/pins/ Eventhough I love it.. I still feel like I don’t really get Pinterest. But I’ll keep on trying. πŸ˜€
I know what you mean.. Sometimes I just wonder what the hell I’ve been doing all week. Time just flew by!
Have a great week and happy reading!

I never remember my dreams! My Pinterest isn’t book related but more for food related stuff. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!

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!

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

I love Pinterest! I have a blog account which I post my book reviews, which I see I am behind on updating my boards lol. Here is my account – https://www.pinterest.com/mynookbksnmore/ . I spend more time on my personal account, looking for recipes. I can spend hours on Pinterest if I don’t watch the time lol. I hope you have a great week!

LOL! One of those weeks, huh? Sometimes I can barely remember what I did the night before, let alone earlier in the week. It’s bizarre!

I DO have a Pinterest account! I am pretty addicted to Pinterest. πŸ˜€ https://www.pinterest.com/alyssasusanna/

I hope you enjoy all of your new books! Have a great weekend. =)

I need to get back into Pinterest for bookish stuff – I love it for travel and for ideas on hosting the family around the holidays. Not much on my blog’s Pinterest account, but you can find it here: https://www.pinterest.com/sheisbookishmn/

Happy reading, Evelina and hope you’re enjoying Sci-Fi month!

I think I have a Pinterest account but I don’t use it. Honestly, I can barely keep up with what I am doing now most weeks so I try not to take on more. I know exactly what you mean about not remembering what you did during the week. I sometimes have to enlist help from my husband when I try to summerize my week. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your new books.

Sounds like you got a lot done last month. My weekends have been pretty busy but that’s good it is once holiday season hits huh? I look forward to seeing some more sci-fi recommendations as I really should read more of that genre. Hope you have s wonderful week.

Laura Thomas

You’re week sounds like mine, I think. I can’t really remember either. LOL It does appear the book santa visited you too. Have you read Illuminae yet? I read Gemina first and now have to go back to the beginning. I love how the stories are presented. And such a lovely way to showcase your books!

I have a Pinterest account, but my site is currently experiencing issues with its crawler (ugh). I haven’t been blog-hopping much, either—mostly visiting other’s pages and then getting distracted by something else. I bought The Host and have been wanting to read that instead of doing stuff on the computer, plus I’ve been devoting more energy to NaNoWriMo.

Aj @ Read All The Things!

Haha, sometimes I don’t remember what I did, either. Have a good week and enjoy your new books!

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.

Love you wrote a novella whilst writing a blog. Brilliant. I’ll look you up on Pinterest though I don’t use it often,

I can not get into pinterest for some reason, haha. The app also tends to not want to work for me. Boo.

I’ve been wanting to read Gemina but I haven’t yet. New books keep me distracted every week. I hope you enjoyed it. Anyway, I have a Pinterest account. Need to pin all the Picts on the blog. Hopefully this week.

Have a wonderful week and happy reading. ❀️

I have some of those weeks to when I sit down to write my post I have no idea what happened that week. I do have Pinterest, although I mostly use it to pin recipes.
