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?

Welcome to the world of the Sunday Post, Evelina 🙂 It’s always nice to keep up with bloggers and their lives outside of the internet 🙂

Swans are Fat Too is definitely an intriguing title. I’ll be on the lookout for your review for sure.

Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

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… Read more »

I look forward to know what you think once you finish! A lot of reviewers say it’s slow to start, though I was immediately hooked.

I’m trying to get better about DNFs, and drop more. Only 1 so far this year, though.

Hopefully things at work calm down for you this week, Evelina! I’m excited to read your interview with Kate Moore, because Radium Girls sounds amazing. It’s been ages since I read something based on a true story and I’m curious to hear more about it.

I had to pop in as it’s your first Sunday Post. So exciting about the interview with Moore. I am reading Radium Girls this month and will look forward to your chat. Hoping this is an easier week that allows for more reading! Welcome to the Sunday Post.

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.

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! 🙂

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… Read more »

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!

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.

Hope this week is a little bit easier on ya!
