Sunday Post 60; It's Monday! What are you reading? 45


The Sunday Post is a chance for a chat and catch-up with other bloggers. It’s hosted by Kimba, here: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It’s Monday! What are you reading? Is hosted by Kathryn, here: http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/

I … have not blogged at all. I need to be a bit more organized than this. Anyway.

Study continues, and our first assignments are looming, so we’re getting into deadlines and suchlike. I’m not worried yet, but I’m sure the worry is just around the corner.

I have some paperwork to deal with this week as well as I forgot to declare income to Winz, which I should have done. That’s on me, and I need to call them and sort out repayments. I’m not looking forward to it because bureaucracy, but needs must.

What else. I’m still trying to find a good rhythm for studying outside of class. I know what I want to do, and we have a kind of informal study group going, but sometimes I just want to bury myself at the library with my books. I need to strike that balance. I’ve also picked up a few hours of peer tutoring work with one of the other students in my course. It’s only six hours and it doesn’t pay much, but the experience will be good for me.

Outside of that … did I say that I bought the Dragon Age colouring book? Because I totally did. It’s awesome but so far I’ve been too intimidated to start on any of the pictures – lol. I need to practice my shading and skin tones. I’m not the world’s best or most patient colouring-in person, but I want to make these look pretty.

As for reading, I’m still working on Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray. I’ve also been reading Hard Wired by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell – the third novel in their M/M Cyberlove series. I’m really enjoying it – it’s a fast read and it’s an ebook so I can just pick up my ipad and zoom away.

I also have Lords and Ladies by Mr Sir Terry Pratchett on the go. I started it on Friday and I’m not very far in, but it is Mr Sir Terry Pratchett.

Other than that, not a lot is going on. Spawn has discovered Geronimo Stilton, and is enjoying those books. There seems to be approximately 784 books in the series so far, so they should keep him going for a bit.


What about you? How’s your week? What are you reading?

  2. ANY coloring book will grab my attention and I so hear your heart... I also tend to stare at the pictures before I start coloring in with fear that I will ruin them. But enjoy them in any case!

    Hope you get to juggle your week. Good luck with all! Here's a link to my latest post: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2017/03/the-sunday-post-headlines-and-failure_5.html

  4. HA! Yes, I think that's exactly how many Geronimo Stilton books there are, plus all the spin off series!!!

  5. Greg: It's a good thing - anything that engages Spawn in reading is great. It's my favourite game (it's also nearly the only game I play - lol) :D

    Mareli: It's so pretty. I just need to dive in and then I'll be fine.

    Ronyell: Thank you! :)

    Jane: It's good because it gets Spawn reading, so I can't really complain. :)

  6. Geronimo Stilton is quite popular with the group just a bit older than those at my primary school. It's always a happy feeling to find a series, I think.

    Oh my. Don't stress over a coloring book. That's what the book is designed to relieve!
