Created by the caffeinatedbookreviewer, The Sunday Post is a weekly meme to catch up and chat about the previous and upcoming week.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to make this blog more personal and I really like this meme as it lets me chat to you guys and fill you in on why I may be MIA throughout the week, instead of discussing books and book related things!
In each Sunday Post, I will include books I’m currently reading, upcoming posts, tidbits from my week outside of book world, a featured song and/or a featured quote of the week. Occasionally I may include more things, but those are my go-to topics.
This Week’s Highlights:
This week was full of milestones for a few of my friends so my week was mostly taken up with events celebrating those. Classes have been really busy and I’ve been getting over a cold so it’s been an incredibly hectic week and I’m really in need of a break, which I don’t see happening for a while but that’s okay. University is so great, you guys! I love it! I have so much time! *internal screaming*
I started playing piano again after a year long hiatus and taught myself how to play City of Stars from La La Land (which I still haven’t seen yet but I am dying to).
I’m currently finishing up this post while listening to my dog snoring. I’m just about to go watch Victoria on Masterpiece Theater- it’s so good, guys. I don’t know much about British history but Queen Victoria was pretty badass and this series is all about her taking the throne in the 1800s when she was just eighteen years old. It’s fantastic.
Born A Crime by Trevor Noah– January has been super busy so I haven’t had much time for books but if I did, I would have completed this loooong ago. This book is absolutely amazing and I’ll delve into why in my review but just know that I think you should go read it right now!
A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold– I’m reading this for a class but it’s been a TBR for a while since Leopold is such a famous guy in wildlife management. His writing style is really captivating and I definitely enjoy reading all of his essays on North American wildlife in the early 1900s.
Wolf Wars by Hank Fischer- I’m reading this for the same class as A Sand County Almanac and so far it’s going okay. It’s all about restoring the wolf population to Yellowstone National Park. It’s interesting to see how feelings towards wildlife conservation haven’t changed much, despite the ever increasing piles of evidence that it’s a necessary component to our livelihood.

“How lucky that you have somewhere to protect you from the night,
and if there’s cracks left from the past?
Well then they just let in more light.” -Erin Hanson
