Sunday Post. Remember Me?

Sunday, 20 May 2018

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.
So, it has been a while, hasn't it? I know I haven't been around much (I haven't been around at all), but it's all because LIFE SUCKS! I want time for myself and all the things I love, but I can't find it. And no matter how hard I work to organize my life perfectly, time just flies and I find myself drowning in uni work - and most of the uni work has nothing to do with the thesis I'm writing, and I'm soooo behind these days... I just want to lay down in a dark corner and cry. Or sleep. 

Anyway, I'm currently a part-part-part-time blogger. Hopefully, when all of this over, I'll be able to be back freaking out about books every week.

What happened in my life this last month:

🌻 So much happened that I rather not talk about it because most of it was quite stressful.
🌻 But I did go to Évora (you can see some of the photos here). It's a beautiful and quiet place that I hope to return someday. And I hope to return on a holiday - because I didn't go there to relax from all the stress.
🌻ARCs piling up! Must learn not to ask for more than I can read in a month. Some lessons are hard to learn.
🌻 I'm still ahead my reading schedule. *happy dance*


I probably received/got more books lately, but, you know, I can't remember. One day I won't even remember my own name. Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake came with last month's Fairyloot (there was a delay and most people only received it in May). Have you read it? If so, what did you think of the story?

Wishing everyone a happy bookish week.


  1. Glad you had a nice trip and are ahead of your reading schedule, but I totally understand about all the ARCs. I have been reading 5 a week, but am still behind. I will catch up soon, because I don't have too many releases after June. Good luck getting through them and carving out the time you want for the things you want.

  2. I hope things get less stressful for you.

  3. I’m glad you’re back! Hopefully things get less stressful soon. Have a good week and enjoy your new book!

  4. I'm glad you're ahead of the schedule at least :) I gave actually been feeling the same lately. Lots of work, plus I've been working on mom's Etsy shop a lot. Where does the time go T_T

  5. Glad to see you back! I hope life gets less stressful for you.

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

  6. Sorry to hear your week was so stressful, hope this is a better week for you. Congrats on still being ahead on the reading challenge!!

  7. I know how stressful a thesis paper can be and I am working on one of my own. I hope you destress and take it one day at a time. I am relaxing today and know that I have to get my stuff done as I have it pilling up on me too. Have a better week!

    Mary my #Sunday Roundup #20!

  8. I always feel like one day, I will get my life together. I'm almost 40 and its still a struggle so I know how you feel. Every time I log into goodreads and see the "X books behind schedule" I want to just lower my goal so it stops judging me!

  9. I'm new so I didn't know you were missing. I hope things improve for you. Even when you know better it is very hard not to request books which sound fascinating. Anne - Books of My Heart

  10. Sorry to hear things have been so stressful for you. Welcome back though!

  11. No worries for disappearing, life is hard and balancing it with blogging it even harder. I've been a bit absent of late and I can't use a thesis as an excuse. At least you're still ahead on your reading schedule.
