Sunday Post #284

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Another week down, another week in which my paycheck screams for mercy. My dentist appt went…well-ish. Nothing actually occurred other than them laying out a plan for future visits, none of which I’m looking forward to. Unfortunately, because bad teeth is a genetic given for me and I’ve had braces in the past (causes issues with gums), every dentist visit is usually either one in which I receive bad news or have a lot of work done. I also took Finn to the vet for his second round of shots, and now he’s all set for his neuter surgery in April! Then I can go to my normal vet and get away from the one the shelter has me going to (for free stuff). Things at work have been kind of stressful as well. I’ve spent a lot my downtime continuing my Xbox achievement hunting and I have played some really good stuff this past week! (If you have an Xbox account and want a friend/follower my gamertag is Shadowrose96. I’m an introvert so I won’t bother you with party or game invites. It would just be cool to check out what games everyone is playing) And our Dragon Age game night is going great as well!

I’m looking forward to a calm, non-expensive week…I just need to get through this one and I should be okay! Maybe…

Tell Me Tuesday #60


Hosted by La La in the Library

So you won’t believe what crazy thing happened yesterday! I finished a book! I finished an audiobook that was less than 3 hours long in two weeks! *blows on fingertips*

Last Read


  • Binti by Nnedi Okorafor – This turned out to be a fantastic listen! It’s a relatively short book but it’s written beautifully and the world building is rich and handled with such care that it’s actually impressive that the book is as quick as it is. We definitely need more writers like Okorafor!

Currently Reading

  • Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle Earth by J.R.R Tolkien – We are finishing this one up today! I don’t think we are continuing forward with any other Tolkien book after this, at least for some time. I think we all need a break after 9 straight books.
  • The Color Purple by Alice Walker – I started this one a whim while at work yesterday since I needed something that wasn’t sci-fi or fantasy…and I don’t have a ton of those. I tried to read this a year ago but just wasn’t in the right mood for a hard-hitting novel.
