The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a bit of a recap post of the week where you can link to the posts you made this week, share news, and even what you have been reading. Some categories might change per Sunday.
Now this post was planned on Friday. Early bird. But I had to as I am currently away for the weekend. My parents live about 3 hours away from me, and we are visiting them for my mother’s birthday (Sept. 15th). I’ll try and take a few pictures of my surroudings if the weather is okay. Since I didn’t think it would be okay to make a Sunday post while visiting there (not very polite and all that), I planned it in in advance. I might be able to edit in the link of the planned in Saturday post, but I can’t be sure. Haha.
Look at what my husband ordered for me though!
Funkopops! Initially he had ordered me one of the wolves of Game of Thrones on another site, but they are having trouble delivering it. So when I found another Dutch site that sold them we ordered these. I wanted one of the dragons. Dragons are amazing. And Harry Potter since my husband loves the movies, and the books a bit so that seemed like the right choice.
Look at how pretty they are out of the box. My husband is insisting on keeping them in the box though. Party pooper.
Other than that my week was pretty okay. I got pre ordered books in the mail which always makes any week better. I only worked Monday and Wednesday afternoon and evening so a pretty easy week work wise. The temperature dropped a bit last week so the start to the week wasn’t too great weather wise, but around Thursday it picked up with the Sun. Unfortunately that night it also meant a mosquito or something else decided it was time to come out and play, and bit me a few times. Since it is already September my reaction isn’t as strong so I had a biggish cheek, a big finger and other swollen spots on my arm. I returned for another visit the night after. This one was so vicious. Any limb above the covers it tried to go for within minutes. So annoying. .__. And painful. Stupid allergies.
My birthday is in October. The week of my birthday I’ll have a week off, and for about half of that week we will go to Maastricht. We just booked a hotel so yeay. We haven’t gone away (except to my parents) in a long while (think years) so even though this is still in the country, it is very welcome. And hey, Maastricht has a book shop in a church like in Zwolle so that I need to visit. Haha.
Also, am I the only person that doesn’t give two cents about Queen of Shadows? I though maybe after hearing the buzz I might be compelled to pick it up, but I’ve just stopped caring about this series completely, even though it sounds like it is heading more in the direction that I would like it to head than the general fandom wants it to head into. And yet no interest it sparks in me.
Funny, how sometimes I have more interest in picking up the sequels of books I’ve rated 2/2,5 stars than the sequels books I’ve rated around 3/3,5 stars (or in Heir of Fire’s case even 4,5 stars).
Anyway, I’ll be visiting your Sunday posts on Monday morning. Hope you all are having a good weekend!
So apparently a Spanish publisher has said that the sixth A Song of Ice and Fire book wil definitely be published in 2016, shy of a meteorite hitting us. Funny. I remain skeptical.
