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.
The past two weeks I’ve been struggling a bit with sleeping. So that has been getting to my mood. The baby is getting more active and you can see my stomach move when he or she kicks hard. I do need to take better care of myself. I almost fainted in the book store of all places.
On the plus we did get some baby stuff while my parents were here. But I ate too much pie, haha. We also went out to dinner to thank my parents for some of the expensive baby stuff they got us.
Other than that I’ve been home alone. Maarten has to work a lot. I did reorganize the book shelves downstairs, my main shelves, and I made some more room for new books. Woohoo. I also am trying to make a daily planner of things I’d like to do in the mornings so I have time to read and such in the afternoon. I’m most energetic in the morning and otherwise I would do too much. So taking things easy. I think Monday will also be my blogging day. Though last Monday that went terribly slow as I had some heavy image posts to make.
Saturday night we are going to see The Jungle Book (as this was planned in Saturday afternoon). So I am excited and I hope it is amazing.
Annoyingly on the book haul front, I had pre ordered Flamecaster. But it didn’t arrive once it was released. After calling them we later got an email that it won’t be delivered until April 22nd. Hear me weep. :_:
April 23rd I’ll be participating in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon, mostly on my Twitter or Instagram. Are any of you doing it? Hopefully Flamecaster will arrive on time for this…
Last weekend it was time for a short tbrtakedown. I had never participated in this read-a-thon before. Like you all know my reading hasn’t been as before since I’ve been pregnant so I want to use a few read-a-thons to hopefully kick my ass into reading more.
If you have any tips on read-a-thons that are happening in the near future, let me know. I prefer short ones at the moment. Those that are only a few days. I know of Dewey’s 24 hour read-a-thon, RYBSAT round 8 and the Dutch Blossom Books read-a-thon. Anyway here is my wrap-up for this specific read-a-thon.
