The Sunday Post (20 March)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly of Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Why is it that I always have countless quiet weeks, then everything just happens at once! It's been such a busy (and quick) week this week. I have never felt so happy for the weekend.

Firstly, late last Sunday, my car broke! It was still drivable thankfully, but it actually sounded like I was driving a train when I went round roundabouts. And there is a lot of roundabouts on my commute to and from work! But, yeah, apparently it was something to do with the brake shoes, but my brother is a mechanic (thankfully) so he has now fixed it.

I've also had a busy week with my mum and future sister-in-law. We've been brainstorming the guest list for the wedding. It's not for a few years yet, but my brother and his fiance are going to be checking out some venues in the next couple of weeks and have been advised to have rough numbers prepared.

It was St Patricks day on Thursday and as I work at a University this meant drunk students EVERYWHERE! The Union actually host a party each year from 10 am to 3 am so you can probably imagine the state of some of them. On my way home at 5 pm, I actually saw a small group of girls dressed in green staggering down the street, carrying a bottle of Buckie (the Urban Dictionary definition is perfect here) and singing to their hearts content.

Thursday was also a good day as I received my second auto-approval on Netgalley. I got so excited and squealed in the middle of the office when I got the email through.

Last night, I went to a pub quiz night, run by my old work. It was a great laugh, but my team only came 7th out of 9 teams... And I'm suffering a lot today... Never mix wine and whisky.

  1. "drunk students EVERYWHERE"- lol. I can imagine... and that urban dictionary definition was interesting, I had not heard of that before. :) I know what you mean though about those weeks- some are just like that.

    My Kind of Crazy looks like a fun read.

    1. Yes, I don't ever remember it being that crazy when I was a student.

      My Kind of Crazy unfortunately wasn't what I hoped it would be.

  2. Sounds like you had quite the exciting week--both in and out of the book world! And congrats on your second auto-approve! That's so awesome!

    Here's hoping this next week is just as epic for you! Happy book-ing, and have a great rest of your Sunday.

    Here is my Sunday Post.

    1. It was a mental week haha! And thank you so much, I'm so excited! But it's so hard trying to restrain myself from going crazy with the book requests now though.

  3. Wow, what a week-my daughter is in college in TX A & M, and I can imagine the fun they had this week on spring break, am sure she'll fill me in soon-LOL Have some nice reads there-enjoy!!

    1. Haha! I hope your daughter had a great break!
