Book hauls, Sunday post

Sunday post #34 Bookmail!!!

Hi everyone! How is your Sunday? So far mine’s alright. So let’s talk about my week in a nutshell:

  • about 90% of this week is not really something I want to talk about x.x
  • mostly due to various health problems all at once, but I’m okay now!
  • some good things happened too, luckily! I went out with colleagues on Friday and it was like the best work party EVERRRR
  • and also do you remember how I never get any bookmail? Well, the rule has been broken! Lo and behold the beauty:

Yes, I was immediately wearing that ribbon in my hair when I took it off the book. Anyhow, without further ado, let’s see what has happened on the blog and what I’ve got planned next week!

~ Last Week On The Blog ~

Last week I reviewed a Doctor Who short story collection – for when you run out of episodes, of couse. Then I also reviewed one of my favorites of the year – An Unkindness of Ghosts. I urge you to check it out if you still haven’t, cause it’s diverse, emotional, deep and very well written. And I also posted a list of books that are realistic about the space experience, because I feel like knowing about the realities of your scifi is also important.

~ Coming Up Next Week~

Next week of my blog might just be pretty epic!! First of all, I’ll be wrapping SciFi Month up with a nice discussion about why reading scifi baffles some people and how that might be due to the “language barrier” it has. I hope you enjoy the discussion! Then on Wednesday we’re doing our monthly State of the ARC, so if you’re willing to survey your own situation, please link up! And on Friday I’ll be reviewing Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials – a series I loved immensely. So drop by the blog next week!

~ Little Book Haul ~

I’m basically writing this month off. No restrain. I have already hauled 16 books, and my TBR is glaring at me madly. #noregrets

The Sparrow (The Sparrow #1) Snowflower and the Secret Fan Strings (Among the Mythos 0.5) The Four Women

~ In The Bookish Community ~

Lory @ The Emerald City Book Review shares her thoughts on what makes a nonfiction book a winner for her

Vlora @ Reviews and Cake joins up with Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight to talk about the most ridiculous promo requests they’ve received over the years

That’s this week, how has yours been? What are you reading? I’ll be waiting for your comments and news.

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.

I actually saw that Instagram post because you posted it on Twitter as well. And again, four books is not a little book haul XD

So glad to be back! You’re actually the first Sunday post I’ve commented on in a while 😀

4 books is not a little haul! Also, I hope the next week is better than this one for you. ❤️

Although I do not really like reading physical books, I do love getting mail. Sorry to hear you had a rough week, but I am glad it finished on a high note.

I hope you are feeling better Evelina. <3

I love receiving book mail. It always brightens up my day.

Thank you for recommending An Unkindness of Ghosts – must add to my wishlist. The cover of Strings is so pretty. *.* I really need to stop falling in love with pretty covers.

Happy readings & I hope you have a better week.

I just can’t get into Sci-Fi, so maybe I’ll have to check out that post about the “language barrier.” LOL.

Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

So sorry to hear about your health problems. That sucks. Glad to hear your doing better though. 😉
That new book looks lovely. I can’t wait to find out your thoughts about that one.
Your discussion sounds very interesting. I’ll have to check that one out.
Have a great week and happy reading.

I’m glad you’re feeling better health wise and yay for some partying! At least you had fun 🙂 And yay for book mail!!

Congrats on book mail! I love book mail! I also love Doctor who. I am way behind on the seasons though (the last time I watched was the 50th anniversary special!). Have a great week!

I have to disagree with everyone telling you that 4 books isn’t a little book haul…Four books is absolutely miniscule. You’ve seen my hauls (and my STS posts don’t include the books I get in the mail or through Netgalley because I do those in different posts).

So you keep right on saying that your four book hauls are little, and I’ll be right here to back you up on that assessment. 🙂

Have a great week.

Yay for good book mail. One of the better things in life, I think. And sorry to hear the week was rough health- wise. Hope you are flying good now and have a better this week this time!

Looking forward to seeing your SciFi Month wrap up post. It’s been a fun month for SciFi!

Have a great week! 🙂

Sorry about your health problems. I hope you feel better. Glad the bookmail cheered you up – it’s so nice when books arrive isn’t it?

Great sci-fi books! I hope they are all equally good. 🙂

Haha yay for shiny new books 🙂 one can never have too many!

I’m looking forward to reading your sci-fi language barrier post for sure, because I am totally one of those; my eyes glaze over, like I’m reading one of my textbooks :/

No shame for a book haul! You’re supporting authors, right? 😛

Bookmail is the best especially when it comes with a pretty ribbon 🙂 Sorry you had some not so good this week. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

I’m glad your health problems are over, Evelina! And that there was some goodness happening last week, too! Getting bookmail is the best! I love it when I see something that could be a book in my mailbox 🙂
Enjoy your new books, and have a wonderful week!
