Sunday Funday is a weekly(ish) post I’ve started to recap the bookish (and sometimes not-so-bookish) happenings in my life the past week! Feel free to participate, just link back!
July 7-July 14, 2014
This week I reached 150 followers! I know that this isn’t a huge amount for many bloggers, but for me it’s an exciting milestone in my blogging progress. I’ve found the book blogging community to be so welcoming and supportive and I’m excited to keep growing. So thank you so much to everyone who reads and follows!
I just received a copy of Allegiant today, courtesy of my aunt who just finished the series and is obsessed (she’s already bought and finished the Four story collection). I actually read and loved Divergent and Insurgent, but I’ve neglected to get around to the third installment because of a lot negative reviews (and I know what the major spoilers are and I don’t like them at all!) You can read my thoughts on the Divergent film here.
I’m in the middle of two books, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Since You’ve Been Gone. I’m usually pretty book monogamous but I started Mara Dyer because I’ve had a hard time being motivated to read Since You’ve Been Gone, which I’m attributing to contemporary burnout. I’ve read a lot of contemporary lately and took a break from it last week to read The Raven Boys and now all I want to do is read eerie, magical, paranormal fiction. Do you ever get burnt out with certain genres? The only thing is I have to read Since You’ve Been Gone fast since it’s a library loan!
What Happened Here This Week:
Tuesday: I posted my Top Ten Blogging Confessions
Wednesday: I talked about my mixed feelings in my Love Letters to the Dead review.
Saturday: I raved about how happy The Raven Boys made me.
