Another week and almost another month, but that only means it is time for the Weekend Post! As per the usual, this post is linked up with The Sunday Post at Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves at Tynga’s Reviews.
Life Update! But first the weather report: this winter is the weirdest! It jumps from sun to a bit of snow to some rain and then to pure evil cold! Other than that, this was a slow week… The only worth-mentioning thing that happened is that I have a new desk and I built it on my own. I can finally blog from a desk! It is quite tiny, but very useful – and there’s a picture of it in very poor light.
This Week on the Blog:
- Otaku Sunday #9: Beers, Durian and More Camping
- 26 Before 27: Update #3
- WWW // 21.02 Lots of Vonnegut Quotes
- Book Discussion: Reviewing Kids Books
I am so happy that I wrote and published my first book discussion. I was really nervous about it, but in the end I really enjoyed writing it.
Next Week on the Blog:
- Otaku Sunday #10
- WWW // 28.02
- March Letter
- The Weekend Post #10
And depending on the weather and how I feel, I might do a tag or a book review. I know I should write more reviews on the blog, but I am just so used to only posting on Goodreads and Amazon.
Around the Blogosphere:
♦ Laid-Back Camp, a (Happy) Story of Solitude by The Afictionado. On my Otaku Sunday series I basically just write down what I watch during the week and how I feel about it, but on The Afictionado you can find beautiful essays on the anime of the season (and not only) – and this one is about Yuru Camp (the super relaxing anime about camping) and I loved it!
♦ Bookish Resources or How to Get Free Books Legally by The Cursed Books. After writing the awesome post about book piracy (that I shared in the past before, but here it is again), Marta shares a lot of ways or website to get books for free.
Stacking the Shelves:
So… I managed to stay away from NetGalley this week and not request ANY book. But I couldn’t stay away from Amazon, especially their free books but also a lot of sales. Sorry, not sorry?
I got some classics – they were all free and probably still are. I want to finish Shakespeare’s Sonnets this year and read another play or two, so I got Hamlet. And Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie was free and I liked the cover and it made its way into my shopping cart.
Some romance and fairy tale retellings, and a mixture of steampunk excitement and cozy mysteries!
This is the category of “the second book in the series is free so I will get it and buy the first book because why not?” and that is how I got Sakaei and The Campfire Series.
Well, enough books for a week, right? Hopefully this crazy-shopping only happens once a month. I am sure next week I will haul no book, unless I check NetGalley tonight…
Read any of the books I got? Found any good deals on Amazon?
