The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~A post to recap the past week on the blog and showcase books and things we have received.
I feel as if all I am doing is writing Sunday Posts one after the other!
Welcome to yet another of these Sunday Posts! As per usual, let me ramble a bit about what’s going on in my life before moving on to the recap and highlights.
Last week was made better because of you guys! Yes, you! This month’s views crossed the last month’s and honestly I have never seen so much traffic on my blog ❤ Thank you so much! This might also be due to the fact that I am actually making every possible effort to get the posts up on time and maintain a schedule and so far I have been successful. So, pro tip: Post regular and good content to increase engagement on your blog.
You might have noticed that I recently started a bookstagram account. I haven’t been able to post much there and for a long time now, I haven’t taken any bookish pics A major reason for not taking any pics is the fact that I don’t have a properly-lit place. My house is west-facing which means I have the luxury to take photos in sunlight by late afternoon but recently we moved one flat down and now though we do still receive sunlight, it’s just not enough. I can always go back up and take photos there but I am a lazy soul and would rather not. I will try tho! Do you have a bookstagram? How do you take photos?
Things are going great on the language learning front. I know a few basic phrases and words and it would be a little easier for me than before to understand what a person is saying in Arabic. Funny how when you don’t know a language all you hear is blah, blah, blah.
And lastly, a big shout out to the person who binge-read my posts and drastically increased my daily views number ❤

I was nominated for the Brotherhood of the World award a looooong time back by the lovely Emma @Thoughts of A Brown Eyed Girl. Remember me telling you that I will do all the tags and awards that I was tagged for before I took that 6 month-long hiatus? This is one of those. If want to be tagged in any of these posts, don’t be shy and lemme know!

Yes, not a review but a talk. I talked about ‘Rats, Mice and Other Things You Can’t Take To A Bank’ by Leslie Handler. A non-fiction memoir, a collection of various essays. I loved reading this and it definitely impressed me. I would recommend this to everyone. I love the way the heavier topics were covered in a light, humorous and yet informative way.
PS If you want to know why I didn’t ‘review’ this book, just take a look at my updated ‘Policy Page‘.

On Friday, I posted yet another episode of the series. In this one, the fabulous Jess Combs lets us in on West Virginian secret 😉
And before I forget, I am forever in need of bloggers to contribute for the ‘Around the World’ series. I have had so many lovely bloggers take part and would love to add more. If you know a book based in your region/country/state that you think perfectly represents you and your people, then what are you waiting for? Please DM me on twitter or use the Contact form.
