The Sunday Post is hosted by Caffeinated Book ReviewerSunday Salon is hosted by Readerbuzz.

This post is an opportunity to recap the past week on my blog and in my personal life. It’s also a chance to set up some goals for the upcoming week and share the music/films/TV shows/podcasts that I’ve loved this week.

Personal

The only good part of this week is that Lent is finally over today and I can eat chocolate again.

I had a migraine on Wednesday and the after-effects continued into Thursday so that wasn’t fun.

I did finish reading The Major Works of John Donne which means I only have one book left from my original Classics Club Challenge list – which is unbelievable – and I’m going to try to read that book next week.

This Week's Posts

This Week's Posts (1)

The Major Works of John Donne – I’ve already posted a review of this book which wasn’t really a review but, oh well. I really enjoyed reading this and getting to know Donne’s poetry a little more. I found some new favourite poems, particularly To His Mistress, and I liked reading the sermons and letters that were included in the collection too.

Currently Reading

How We Disappeared by Jing-Jing Lee – I started this on Friday and I’ve almost finished it. I did intend to start it earlier in the week but that didn’t work out so I’m reading it now instead. I hope to have it finished by the end of today – mainly so that I can review it as soon as possible – but we’ll see.


Stay safe everyone!

  1. How exciting to be so close to the completion of your Classics Club list! Have you started compiling books for your second list? That’s fun, too, and now seems like a good time.

    Hurray for chocolate! I think I shall add some to my Kroger order at the end of this week.

    I’m curious about How We Disappeared. Please let us know what you think about this one soon.

    1. I’ve just started thinking about the second list! I’m going to compile a massive list and then narrow it down to 50 🙂

      I’ve almost finished How We Disappeared so I should have a post up about it soon!

  2. That was very brave of you, giving up chocolate for Lent. I hope your first piece now that it’s over will be extra delicious. I hope you are feeling better after that nasty Migraine. I hope you are enjoying How We Disappeared. I read it last year and loved it.

    I hope you have a good week. Stay safe and well.

    1. I almost always give chocolate up for Lent! I once gave up caffeine and that was a mistake but it was a difficult year for lent due to the current situation.

      I’ve really enjoyed reading How We Disappeared. It’s such an interesting book 🙂

  3. Glad you can eat chocolate again! It looks like you just posted a review for Don Quixote. I’ve read excerpts on and off in college but I have been meaning to read the whole thing soon. I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.
