Sunday Post - # 4

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Because I already participate in the In My Mailbox meme (however, I didn't receive any books this week, so no IMM this week), I'm just going to use this one as way to recap my week.

THIS PAST WEEK:

This week started off with a day off from work for me. It was quite nice. I got up earlier and finished Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon and reviewed it. (3 Stars) Then I went and got my hair cut--got about 5 inches cut off and it feels much better for the temperature around here lately. And then I went to the library where I picked up the only two books I received this week. You can check them out in my In My Mailbox post.

The other bookish thing I did on my day off was watch PBS's Masterpiece Theater version of Wuthering Heights. Which I loved!!!! It left me wanting to read the book immediately. Of course, I haven't had an opportunity to even start it yet, but I have a feeling I will soon. I, also, loved that Andrew Lincoln (Rick from AMC's The Walking Dead) played Edgar Linton. I cannot believe I haven't read this book.

I also participated in two other features this week. I listed my Top 10 Most Vivid World Settings in Top 10 Tuesday, and featured The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater in my Waiting on Wednesday post.

UPCOMING THIS WEEK:

This coming week on the blog, I'll be participating in Top 10 Tuesday again where I'll list the Top 10 Characters I Want to Switch Places with for 24 Hours. I'll also feature another book I'm eagerly awaiting in Waiting on Wednesday. And I plan to review One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, # 1) by Janet Evanovich. Other than that, I'll just have to see. I'm trying to talk my friend Paula into doing a guest post for me, but I haven't gotten her to agree to it just yet and won't pressure her into doing it.

What bookish things have you guys been up to this week? Let me know!

  2. Five inches!? You were hot and brave. :) I don't think I've seen the Masterpiece Theater version of Wuthering Heights but I've seen just about all of the rest. I just love the book. It's sacrilegious to admit, but I even like the Ralph Fiennes version.

    You picked up some good books from the library - Stephanie Plum is hilarous. Happy reading!

    1. Haha...I had plenty to cut. I typically keep it pretty long. :) I would definitely suggest checking out that version. However, since I haven't read the book myself, I can't speak to it's accuracy.

  3. I am looking forward to your review of One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, # 1) by Janet Evanovich. I bet you fell lighter with five inches off and i love Wuthering Heights. Thanks for linking up to The Sunday Post. Feel free to combine the IMM and Sunday Post. As long as you mention both, a lot of bloggers combine more then one for exposure.

    1. My review of One for the Money is up now. I definitely do feel lighter with my haircut. I originally liked the idea of keeping my post separate, but I might think about combining them. Thanks for the suggestion and for stopping by and commenting!

  4. I love Wuthering Heights. I re-read it a few years ago. It's so dark and angsty!

    1. Reading 5/6 books at a time like I am, I haven't made much progress on it, but hopefully I'll finished Wuthering Heights soon. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    1. Yeah me too! When I first saw him I was like "is that? is that RICK? It can't be." But I was so sure it was him I looked it up on imbd to verify and it was. I hope you enjoy it. As I told Barbara above I can't speak to the accuracy of the movie since I haven't read the book. I hope you enjoy it.
