Book hauls, Sunday post

Sunday post #48 Yeah, There Is A Haul This Week... Nothing More To Report!

So… Where did this week go? AGAIN? Hmmm. Well… I don’t have awesome cake photos to share with you this week, which is too bad, but it was an overall good week. I finally caught up with my blog posts! Now I can finally relax a little bit… Although I know that the next two weekends will be tough and busy, so I probably won’t be able to relax anyway xD oh well!

So, this week in a nutshell:

  • I taught another class, and it wasn’t terrible this time. Thank god!
  • I failed to NOT haul books this time. Read: I HAULED A LOT.
  • But that’s okay, cause I also read a lot! 6 books in a week O_o what..?
  • I also basically deep-cleaned the entire house. Apart from just one cupboard.
  • If you’re wondering how that, and working is compatible, I’ll just say audiobooks.
  • Other than that, I don’t really know where the time went! …So, as per usual.
  • I read some amazing books though, I can truly recommend The Long Way Down and All Systems Red! Reviews to come.

~ Last Week On The Blog ~

Last week I posted two reviews and one #NewBloggers 101 post. Rosie Colored Glasses is a heart-breaking story of a child’s love for a mother that is suffering from substance abuse, and also how crippling depression can be. Freshwater is an incredible story of multiple personality disorder, through the lens of mythology and shamanism. And the #NewBloggers content we had was a guest post by Lauren @ Northern Plunder about how you can move from Blogger to free WordPress.

~ Coming Up Next Week~

Coming up next week, we have State of the ARC #7! So if you are planning to link up this month, plan your post sometime next week and come around to link up. I will also be posting a review of Dragon’s Future, a fantasy, obviously, about dragons – well, mostly! And there will also be a great post about what linkups are and how you should harness them – by our beloved Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

~ Little Book Haul ~

Weeeeeell… The two weeks before I barely hauled anything. All of you were right! It was more than likely that I would relax and haul more this week. Precisely what happened… Oh well. At least I read a lot of books this month. Maybe I can handle it. Mmmmmaybe.

Eight Stories: Tales of War and Loss   Pierce Brown's Red Rising: Sons of Ares #1 (Sons of Ares #1)   Sugar Money
Florence Nightingale: A Life From Beginning to End     The Lost Castle (The Lost Castle #1)    The Dragon Queen

~ In The Bookish Community ~

Ivy @ Ivyclad Ideas pokes fun at some tropes in an epistolary manner

Marta @ The Cursed Books talks about things that non-readers should just stop doing already

Aimee @ Aimee, Always gives some pointers and hacks on how to style your book reviews

Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight shares some book covers that feature disability

Gayathri @ Elgee Writes shares an awesome list of Finnish books

So how has your week been? And what are you reading? What did you haul?

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.

Yay for being all caught up!! Even if it doesn’t last very long!! *sends cake for effort* I’ve just go home from travelling so currently my internet is like stacked with 3989 blogs I need to visit and I’m just laughing tragically in the darkness. But anyway. YAY FOR NEW BOOKS! I think too many books is still always better than not enough. And those posts you linked to look fab so I’ll add them to my tabs even though they’re screaming at me.

Hope you have a good week! 😀

It’s incredible how much I like audiobooks now. I was hesitant to start, but now I love them. Being able to get some “reading” done while I drive or clean or shop is fabulous.

JoLee @ Wickedly Delicious Book Blog

I really need to give my house a good deep cleaning this year. Hope you do get to find time to relax before your next few busy weekends.

Happy Reading

Ohhh cannot wait for The State of ARC!! I am so excited since it will be my first one!!

Aghh I need to clean the flat as well but I never have enough time do that properly….

Been working this weekend and finally tomorrow or actually today will make a surprise birthday party for my dad so I am very excited about this!

Also I am glad to say that I am visiting more amazing bookish blogs and getting to know amazing people in our community

Always YES for new books!!

Thankk youu and no worries sometimes we have to adult and this part takes the biggest part of our lives (unfortunately)

The surprise party turned out better than we expected ^^

And I am really happy that I am being more active and participating in groups and memes like yours and interacting more with our fellow book lovers :)))

Aj @ Read All The Things!

Congrats on getting caught up on blog posts. I haven’t written new posts in about 2 weeks, so I’m way behind. I hope you love your new books!

Natalie @Natflix&Books

Yay for the class going well, and more yay for audiobooks. Six books in a week is awesome. I love productive weeks. Happy reading!

Haha that explains the late replies to my comments but don’t worry, we all get it! Hope you don’t have much of a hectic week and WHOA 6 books in a week! That is some great progress+

I’m still reading “listening” to Dragons of Future. I am raising my eyebrows that you only gave it three stars (but seriously already I can kind of see why )

I can’t believe you manage to read six books a week!!??
I think I can do three max depending on the size? (currently reading the final empire which will probably take me weeks with how big it is).
also, yay for all being caught up! I have two posts secluded for next week which is better than nothing 😛

I love the cover on Dragon Queen — and am so intrigued by the story!

Freshwater sounds so good! SIX books!! Wow, girl hahaha I hope you’re feeling better now though <3 I'm currently reading RagDoll by Daniel Cole. I don't know if you're a fan of crime fiction but man, is it one gore of a book! I would recommend it if you're interested in that kind of fiction!

Audiobooks are the best when you have to clean! It makes the chore so much more fun!

I always tell myself I’m not gonna buy, nope, not doing it and I always end up buying more. Nice haul!

Rose Colored Glasses sounds sad but interesting to me! Good haul of books this week, enjoy!
I’m very irregular with my posting, some weeks every day, some only one or two. Well, life gets in the way sometimes. Have a good week, Evelina!

3 years ago

Yay, you mentioned me! 😛 And I just realized I have not visited your blog for the entire last week. Which is quite not possible right? Damn where did the time all go? Anyway am recitifying the situation and going on a post hop right away.

It sounds like it’s been a MUCH better week, Evelina – I’m glad your latest teaching gig has been a happier experience! All Systems Red is one I am wanting to get hold of – and huge congratulations on reading 6 books this week. I did, too, but I didn’t clean the house which remains FILTHY! Have a great week:).

Michelle @Because Reading

6 books is awesome! I wish I could read just one. I have been struggling so hard this year with reading. I can’t believe Feb is almost over. This year needs to slow down, I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything yet.

I hope you have a great week, Evelina! Happy Reading! ox

6 book in one week? Congrats! Also, good job on the class and deep-cleaning the house. Such a productive week!

I am trying to organize all my ARCs and at one point will join State of the ARC – I should, I really fell behind this month! And I am really excited for the post on Linkups – it annoys me a bit when people just link up and do not comment back.

I think after two weeks of no hauls you deserve some books!

3 years ago

I want to join, but I am too scared of how unorganized I am and I know State of the ARC will help me. So maybe March is the month for me – I will even add it on my blogging calendar (cause now I have one!)

It’s on my blogging calendar!

You’re a reading machine this week! I have Freshwater on my list now. And I did some deep cleaning too. Still more to do but making progress. My book haul the past few weeks and been slim to none but that will change soon when the pre-orders start arriving. LOL

Oh yes. Audiobooks are a lifesaver when it comes to getting cleaning around the house done. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

6 books? *blink* *blink*

Seriously, that’s awesome. I hope they were great, too! Thank goodness for audio! That is how I clean my house, too.

You had a busy and productive week indeed! I usually keep one audio ob hand each week for while working 😉 I often have to fall back on audio when I suffer a spell, so I have come to really appreciate them. I need to look up All Systems Red. Fresh Water is definitely on my TBR. I have been eyeballing it for several months waiting haha. Now I just need to pick up a copy. Have a wonderful week!

Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

I would love to read Dragon Queen! I hope you have a great week of reading. I still have to hookup on Twitter with the group. I do not want to move my blog. I am happy where I am at for now. If I do I will just buy a website outright and then transfer to it. That’s something for the future!

Ah congrats on reading 6 books this week! I’m off to blog hop from some of those links so thanks for that 🙂 hope you have a great week 🙂

Barb (boxermommyreads)

Cleaning and reading 6 books – you rock. Looks like you grabbed some good books this week. Hope you have a great one!

Remarque’s “Alls quiet on the western front” is one of my favorites – I hope you enjoy the short stories! I haven’t read them myself, but they look tempting 🙂 And I’m very much guilty of the same thing. I get a little too comfortable with my lack of book haul, and then seem to go and buy All The Books 😀 At least you’ve been a on a good reading kick? 🙂

You cleaned your whole house??
I only just manage to do our whole caravan in one week!

I’ve got my State of the ARC ready for tomorrow. There’s good and not so good 🙂

Kristin (Book Sniffers Anonymous)

Oh wow. You got a lot done this week. It sounds like what my week will be like. I have company flying out on Friday, so I will be trying to catch up and schedule things in advance for the blog, read as much as humanly possible to make the other possible, and I always go nuts and deep clean the house when company comes out to stay. LoL So, I could definitely use some of your tips for how you managed it all this week. I already have an audiobook loaded on my mp3 player ready to go. LoL

JJ @ This Dark Material

Yay for a productive reading week AND a great haul! Um, also that deep clean of the house sounds amazing too. You basically had the perfect week in my mind. AND yay for a good teaching experience!! Can’t wait to read all your new posts this week 🙂

I’ve had a slow week but I’ve read and written a few reviews. It’s been quiet but I’m reading Caraval right now and I hauled a few books. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Nikki @ The Bibliophibian

Ooh, seeing the word castle in a title aaaaalways gets my attention, haha. Hope you enjoy the new books!

6 books? 😀 lucky, definitely worth getting more books as a reward for that. Sounds like your week was pretty exciting. Hope the next is just as good.

Rachel @The Readers Den

I love audio books for working out and chores! Glad your teaching went well. Happy reading! 🙂

Hahahaha had a feeling that you’d end up getting more because of non-haul AND speed-reading lately!!! 😀 But 6 ain’t so bad though. I’m sure some of us can tell you about their 10 books + hauls at a bi-weekly pace hahah

3 years ago

Congratulations for being caught up on your blog post, what a wonderful feeling 🙂 You go girl, six books this week 🙂 Have a great week.

Dragon’s Future looks interesting! I’ll look for your review! I love all things dragons, lol.

I’m glad teaching wasn’t so bad this time! It’s what I did pre-babies. I’ll get back to it eventually.

Do You Dog-ear?

Sim @ Flipping Through the Pages

6 books in a week? Well, that is definitely incredible 😀 I barely read in February. I can’t wait this month to be over. And looks like a good haul, though I have no idea about all these books 😀 And this is definitely NOT that big of a haul 😀 At least, it is shorter than mine 😛

Six books in a week? Well done, you! I wish I could manage to do as many things as you did last week, haha.

Ronnie @ Paradise Found

Tânia @MyLovelySecret

February has been a fast month. I mean, while January went pretty slow, I can’t believe February is almost ending. Why does time keep flying?!

Six books in a week is a huge accomplishment. Congratulations!!!!

Well, a bookworm needs to haul books. =P I hope you enjoy your new books.

Happy readings! 😉

Wow Evelina, well done on reading 6 books in a week! I barely managed two and they were just okay books for me. I used to get loads read when I listened to audiobooks too, I think I need to start making more time for them, I haven’t listened to a single one this year! I hope you have a great week 🙂

Daniela Ark

Ahhh isn’t that the best feeling? to be all caught up with your blogging? I think I remember how it felt like 😉 Wow 6 books in a week?? HOW?? DO TELL! and you say audio books so I’m in awe because I couldn’t work while listening to a book. Clean yes. Not work though.
Looking forward to read what you thought of Son of Ares
