Sunday Post - 05 June 2016

Sunday 05 June 2016



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is a post to recap the past week on your blog, tell everyone about books and things you can showcase and share news for the upcoming week. Remember to link your post and to visit others who have linked up.



Just to proof that I know how to be sweet and short (yes I know I am physically sweet and short, this is to show I can do it with words as well), today's post is going to be a very quick recap of the past week. 

Weekly Meme's:




I've posted my Library Card for June as well and I am thrilled to have a fully booked card. I'm not a reading 'wallflower' anymore! I just hope that I will be able to give all these books a twirl....


Highlight of the week:

I finally finished Come, thou Tortoise. And I loved it soooo much. Maybe that was why I read this book at tortoise speed..... I promise to write a really nice, well deserved review on this one.

Come, Thou Tortoise  


Reviews to follow (hopefully this week....):

6216433  2153405


I've also watched the movie of Still Alice. It will be my first Book/Movie review. If you can give me any good tips and advise on doing this - I will be ever so grateful.

Quote of the week:

"What people read revealed so much about them that she considered our card catalog a treasure house of privileged secrets; each card contained the map of an individual's soul"

My husband has been binge-watching Fringe. I've got absolutely no clue what is going on there. Maybe because I read and blog and cook and nurse and teach while he is watching this very weird series. (I might have to add that he is sick at home with tick-bite fever).

What I would like to know: are there any books similar to this series? I am constantly looking for books that my husband will also read and seeing that he is enjoying this series so much - maybe a book or two might also interest him.


Hope you are all going to have a good week!

  3. Come, Thou Tortoise looks really cute. And I wish I had some book recommendations for Fringe fans but I don't really... I haven't watched that show.

    I hope you have a good week. Are you doing Cover Characteristics this time around?

  4. I never did finish seeing the show Fringe. My husband and I binged watched it right after my daughter was born and then after our move, we never got back to it. I keep meaning to.

    Come, Thou Tortoise sounds fun! I like the cover. :-) I look forward to your review of Still Alice. That was such a hard read for me, given my family's history with Alzheimer's and Dementia. I can't bring myself to see the movie. The book was difficult enough.

    I hope you have a great week, Mareli! Thanks for dropping by my blog. :-)

    1. I only watched the first series of FRINGE with my husband and never picked it up again. Although I did enjoy it. Come, Thou Tortoise was GORGEOUS. Such a fun read. You can follow me review, I've posted it on Monday. Haven't started with Still Alice yet.... also quite personal for me. My grandfather had Alzheimer's and although I was 9 when he passed away, I never "knew" him. Watch the movie. It was done beautifully. Julianne Moore was excellent in this movie. The movie is a compliment to the book.

      Thanks for visiting my blog! Lovely to chat with you.
