Sunday Post #15 – February 28th

Today is Sunday, which means it’s time for another installment of my Sunday Post where I will share a summary of my blogging week and other random facts… Here we go!


# CURRENTLY READING

I have been wanting to read The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton for ages, so I’m really excited to be finally diving into this historical fiction novel. It belongs to one of my favorite genres and the Amsterdam setting surely will bring back a lot of flashbacks… I’m not that far into the story yet, but so far it’s good!

# LATEST ADDITION TO MY SHELVES

Haruki Murakami has been recommended to me at least a million times, but somehow I haven’t read any of his work yet. Norwegian Wood is not the first novel by this author on my TBR pile, but it is definitely one that has been mentioned most in combination with his name.

# OTHER (BOOK) NEWS

I don’t really have a lot of book news other than that I finally have a copy of Glass Sword so I will do a Red Queen reading marathon next month! 😀 The same thing will probably happen with the Red Rising trilogy if I like the first book (which I probably will since everybody seems to love that series).

Talking about something different, I’ve made a promise to myself this year to really focus on my running. With bad knees and ankles I’ve never actually actively focused on running before (although I do a lot of ‘speedwalking’ and love spinning),  but this year I want to try and participate in a 5km running event. In February I’ve increased my ‘record’ from 2000m to 2300m… I know it’s only 300m, but I take it considering my good running shoes decided to die on me and the temporary old running shoes I have been using are basically a blister paradise (and my personal nightmare haha). Next month means new shoes and more running, so hopefully I will see more improvement in the future! 😀

  1. I like your TBR list:). I’ve read Red Queen and while it was enjoyable, it didn’t blow me away. However, I know a lot of people were thrilled with it, so I expect it is simply a matter of taste – I look forward to hearing your response. But the series you’ve got on your list that DID excite me it the Red Rising trilogy – it’s full-on, action-packed from the start and I LOVED it. Have a great Sunday and happy reading!

    • I really enjoyed Red Queen last year, but I made sure to keep my expectations low because of the hype around it. I’m really looking forward to the Red Rising trilogy though, because it seems to be such a good series! I’m glad to hear you loved it as well. Happy reading!

    • I never imagined I would love running this much… I’m going to get proper running shoes this week and I can’t wait to try them out. 😀

      I’ve seen so many people loving the Red Rising trilogy that I can’t wait to try it out myself! Hopefully it’s just as good as everybody keeps promising…
