The Sunday Post is hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where you share news about your blog on a weekly basis. It can include what you’ve been reading, what you’ve posted, what’s coming up next, and any books you added to your shelves!

I haven’t done one of these in a while, because I usually don’t blog on the weekends much. It’s not exactly a post you can create ahead of time either, because you never know what books you might finish after you schedule it! Regardless, here’s what I did this past week and what’s coming up next week.

this week readingcurrent readdarkest part of the forestyes please
I am loving The Darkest Part of the Forest right now. I love her writing style, but it’s definitely not for everyone. I was reading Yes Please in hardcover form for a while, but I switched to the audiobook because a) she narrates it herself and it’s awesome and b) I needed to fill the time before my next HP audiobook comes in at the library!

I’ve wanted to read The DUFF for a while and I’m finally going to do it next! I’m in a great place right now with my reading, where I’m in the mood for a lot of things and don’t have many ARCs weighing on my brain. I’ll continue my Harry Potter reread (in audio form) with Prisoner of Azkaban as soon as it arrives at the library.

    • I’ve heard nothing but great things about it! I’ve heard from some people’s early screenings of it that the book and movie are quite different, but both are good. Yes Please is great. The hardcover is gorgeous, with lots of pictures and parts of her life included, but the audiobook is narrated by her, so it’s even better. I’ve been switching between the two.

  1. Ah, good job on finishing three books. 🙂 I’ve been thinking about The Secrets of Lily Grave. I’ve heard All Fall Down is interesting, from tweets, if that’s the same book I’m remembering. Ooh, Yes Please is on my “to buy” list. I’m going to read Duff for the read-a-long going on about it, hopefully. I haven’t gotten to it yet.

    • I was very into the books I read this week, I couldn’t help finishing them all so quickly haha. I think most people though Lily Graves wasn’t that good, but maybe you’ll have better luck. I looooved All Fall Down. Ally Carter is great. Yes Please is so great. The hardcover is gorgeous and has cool pictures and snippets about her life. I’ve alternated between reading the book and listening to the audiobook, because she narrates it. She’s my favorite. I’m hoping to start The DUFF in the next few days because I got it for Christmas and want to do the readalong 🙂

  2. I never include my finished books in my sunday post, although I might mention them if I feel like it. I usually create the draft on Tuesday and then keep adding things until it goes live on Sunday. I’ve heard so many good things about the Darkest Part of the Forest, so I am glad to hear you are enjoying it!

    • That’s a good point! I used to draft it earlier in the week or on Friday and then change things if needed. Usually I can estimate if I’m going to finish a book by Sunday, especially if I write the post on Friday, so it’s not too bad. Sometimes I’m just not in the mood to deal with it 😛
      YES Darkest Part of the Forest is very intriguing so far.

  3. I loved Holly Black’s writing style in the Coldest Girl in Coldtown so I do really want to read the Darkest Part of the Forest. I think it is all the mixed reviews that has me so hesitant about picking it up.

    I also really want to read DUFF before the movie comes out, I think it will be a nice fun, light read which I need in between reading my million paged Epic Fantasy reads haha

    • I think the biggest thing about Holly Black is writing style. If you like it, you’ll probably like this book. Her writing just doesn’t agree with some people, for some reason. I’m enjoying it a lot!
