Sunday Post 84, It's Monday, what are you reading? 69


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

I actually managed to write and schedule a couple of blog posts last week - go me! I reviewed Eye in the Sky, and also the live 2013 version of The War of the Worlds. I'm going to try and do the same thing this week, with reviews for The Hound of Death, The Book of Dust and the movie Snowpiercer. I'm a latecomer, somehow, to scheduling posts, but it makes blogging sooooo much easier!

Work continues. This Wednesday is my three-month anniversary, which means the 90-day trial that's built into most of our contracts now is up. I'm *pretty* sure they would have said something to  me by now if they were going to show me the door and demand back their keys, but I'm naturally superstitious. BUT I had my first evaluation last week as well, and passed, so there is that also.

I've been mainlining The Good Place on Netflix, and I am SUPER EXCITED because Grace & Frankie is back as well. I've watched, I think, five episodes since yesterday morning.

As for what I'm reading, I managed to finish The Hound of Death, and also The Book of Dust. Now I'm reading It Devours, by the Welcome to Night Vale creators, and also The Exodus Quest, by Will Adams, which is a bit Da Vinci Code, but I got it for 50c from the withdrawn bookshelf at the library, and it makes for good lunchtime reading at work.

This week - more work, more reading  (hopefully) and more Netflix (always.)

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

  1. I watched all episodes of The End of the FXXXing World. OMG! This show though. It's ridiculous but mad, crazy, fun and did I say ridiculous? haha and I had to watch Breaking Dawn 2 again. Loved Twilight.

  2. Scheduling blog post helps me so much! Even if I don't have many to show for right now... I keep telling myself I should just go ahead and schedule a whole bunch, then I get stuck on Twitter, or with a book instead :)
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading, Maree.

  4. I really liked the first season of The Good Place! It was so funny! I haven't done very well about keeping up with the 2nd season but I'm hoping it'll show up on Netflix during the summer. Yay for being done with your probationary period but I can understand wanting solid confirmation. I'm a bit superstitious too. Have a great week!

  7. I try to schedule a lot of blog posts. It takes the pressure off worrying about if my blog is going dark. Also, I read ahead most of the time so that books I'm reading now won't show up on my blog for a month or so. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  8. The Good Place might be one of my favorite things on these days. War of the Worlds live? I do not know what this is, but I must find out!
