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.
I’m happy to report that I am feeling a lot better than last week. My voice came back properly around Wednesday, and though shouting is not advised, I can at least talk without a huge effort. Still easily tired, but that should even out. I also made an appointment with the speech therapist for next week. So hopefully that will help as well.
Other than that my week has been okay, mostly. I worked Monday, Thursday and the weekend (when this posts I still have to work the late afternoon/evening shift).It’s my third weekend in a row. ._.
On Tuesday morning my husband went to grab my bike and it wasn’t there. I tend to put my bike in front of our house, locked. We can go through the back but it’s really dark there if I come home late, and I am a little iffy on the neighbours behind us. Plus it’s a weird construction back there, and I’d just rather not go there. But yeah, my bike was gone. So that sucked, but it’s really old. I’ve had it since I started high school I think so that was when I was 12-13 and I’m turning 28 in a good week so… My husband went for a walk around the neighbourhood later though and found it in the park. They had stolen my bags from the back but other than that it wasn’t useful to them as it was locked. We now got an extra padlock to attach my bike to our bench at the front. There was that.
That evening I decided I’d redo a section of my book shelves. I put most of my hardcovers together and sorted the paperbacks by height. It looks neat but I had to break up a few series so I’m not sure I’m going to keep it like this for long. I don’t like breaking up series.
I created a facebook page for my blog. You can find it here or in the sidebar. I’d really appreciate a look and a like. 🙂
A lot of packages have been arriving here lately. I pre ordered some books like Magnus Chase. I’ve been really lucky with pre orders this year as most of them I’ve gotten a few days before release. I got Fairest a week before the release for instance. And the other packages are presents my husband has been ordering for my birthday. My birthday is October 12th. Turning 28. Two more years and I’ll be turning 30. Somehow that seems a frightening number. But on the up, my husband will turn it 6 months earlier than me, haha.
I wanted to finish Magnus Chase on Friday but I couldn’t, and then I had to work this weekend (that work schedule got flipped around a few times), but I’m hoping to read a bit more this afternoon. Ugh, but I’ve been pretty terrible with writing reviews so I might have to do that instead. And I also have to finish the second half of the second course of medicine I mentioned in last week’s Sunday post.
I follow some blogs on bloglovin’ (though I haven’t attached this blog to bloglovin’, it wouldn’t work so I gave up) but I’ve noticed that I hardly ever comment on those posts. I don’t find the feed to use that easily as my wordpress feed is to comment on posts. Does anyone else have that?

- I put The Catastrophic History of You and Me on hold for now as It’s a Wonderful Death is a tad similar I believe and I want to read that first. I’ll probably pick it back up around the end of the month.
