The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. Here’s where I share a little about what I’ve been reading, (hopefully not) buying, and other bookish news. This is a regular post that used to have the much more boring name of “weekly update,” but when I discovered the Sunday Post, I thought I would go ahead and insert myself into the meme community.
- On the blog – How to Read More in 2020
- I found a round up of the most scathing book reviews of 2019, and it is a delight.
- Naomi Novik is writing a new series that publisher Del Rey is calling a “super dark, super modern, female-led Harry Potter.” Obviously I’m interested, but can we stop comparing all fantasy books with magic schools to Harry Potter?
Books I read:
- Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson – ⭐⭐⭐.5/5 Another Sanderson towards my goal! It took me a while to get into this book, and the writing definitely isn’t on par with the rest of his books that I’ve read so far. This is the first in a YA trilogy about superheroes, called Epics, who, instead of protecting the world, seek to control it. The protagonist, David, is possibly the most annoying character I’ve ever read. However, the storyline is good enough to keep me interested, and I have a goal to achieve.
None! I was even at a bookstore for trivia earlier this week and I didn’t buy anything! Look at me go.
- Follow Me to Ground by Sue Rainsford – This was the January pick for The Fantastic Strangelings Book Club (part of Jenny Lawson’s Nowhere Bookshop), but I’m just now getting around to it. It looks like it’s going to be a short read, and it sounds a little spooky and dark, too. If you don’t already know about The Bloggess and her new bookshop, I highly recommend checking her out.
I’ll be doing my best to conquer the rest of the books I had set aside for this month, as well as reading a few galleys for upcoming releases. Samantha Irby’s new book Wow, No Thank You is already loaded on my Kobo and calling my name.

Have a great reading week!
