sunday post #35

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer. It's a chance to recap posts from the past week and tease upcoming content, as well as share new books, reading challenge progress, and anything else you've come across in the last seven days.

Whew. It's been a while, hasn't it? That new job I mentioned in my last Sunday Post is still going strong. The positives? $$$ The negatives? For a couple of months, I found myself completely drained of motivation to tend to my blog. I'm choosing to get back into a semblance of my routine right before it looks like I'll be taking on more responsibilities, but compared to the end of the summer I'm much more relaxed and confident about my situation. I might be a little choosier about the reviews I take time to write or how often I post (in the short-term, at least) but I'm so happy to return to the hobby and friends that add so much happiness to my days!


This week I managed to finish my e-ARC of White Stag by Kara Barbieri. I signed up for the blog tour right when I started thinking about returning to some sort of posting schedule, and the deadline to submit my materials for the tour is coming up at the end of the month. I've had my eye on this title for quite some time, so I'm doubly excited to do a little Q&A with Kara!

Book Review: Lethal White by Robert Galbraith


This week I was so lucky to get an advanced copy of Slayer by Kiersten White in the mail. I loved The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein and really enjoyed binge-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer in college, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed this will be a great read! I also traded for an ARC of The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon; this book is an absolute brick at over 800 pages, so I need to strategize when I start it. I don't know if it will fit in my carry-on for my frequent work trips! Lastly, my local used bookstore had a Black Friday sale and I used the opportunity to pick up a copy of The Kingdom of Little Wounds.  It happened to have sprayed edges, which I never knew about for this particular titles, so I don't know if that's just a pleasant little secret, or if the previous owner did that themselves.


I'm still in the process of catching up with my blog, as well as all of yours! I don't have any posts to share this week, but I'm excited to do lots of blog-hopping this week during my next trip :)

How do you adjust to new responsibilities? Do you notice yourself giving less attention to your hobbies, or can you keep up with them as usual? Have you ever taken a blogging hiatus, expected or not?
