Good evening friends! It‘s Sunday night once again, so it can only be time for my Sunday Summary update post!
Before we get stuck in with the book I’ve been reading this week, let’s recap the blog posts I shared earlier this week. On Tuesday, I shared my next book review for the Harry Potter series – Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I enjoyed re-reading this series from a more mature perspective. In that review, I take a look at my thoughts on the book from this new perspective.
On Wednesday, I brought you the next instalment in my series, Well, I Didn’t Know That! In that post, I featured the Understanding Habits magazine that I was meant to feature last week. This is a ‘bookazine’ and so I had to feature the whole 128 pages rather than picking an element out of it. That would’ve been very difficult to do as it’s one cohesive topic.
On Friday, I shared the next instalment in my Shelf Control series. For this week’s post, I featured a science fiction novel written in collaboration between two authors. The first of the two is an author I love, whilst the second is one I have a limited experience of. That being said, I’m excited to give it a go!
This week, I’ve found myself doing a number of things as well as reading. I have gone back to a cross-stitch project that I started working on again recently; I’ve also been doing some more knitting… and watched more TV than usual.
As a result, I have only made about 300 pages worth of progress into A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin as of writing this post. That’s not to be sniffed at by any means. At just under 800 pages, this is a chunky book. If I was reading anything else, that reading progress would equate to a book, or most of one. Not only that, but there there’s a lot going on in this book. Whilst I’m very familiar with the storyline and can recognise events that are going to happen at the start of a chapter (because I’m sad like that), it’s still a decent amount to read.
I’ve enjoyed doing some of these other things, so I’ve been having a long hard think about my current blogging schedule. If I want to keep up with the reading progress I want to make and also enjoy my other hobbies, then I probably have to cut down the blogging schedule from four posts a week to three. That’s something I’m going to experiment with and I’ll keep you updated on in due course.
It’s been nearly a month since I added any books to my reading list. That has to be a record, right?
Next week I will be featuring a Top Ten Tuesday post. The topic is ‘books on my spring TBR’. I’ll be taking a look at the books I intend to read over the next few months and why I want to pick them up.
As I mentioned above, I am going to experiment with reducing my blogging schedule back to 3 posts a week. In order to do so, I’m going to add my recently added feature, Well, I Didn’t Know That! series, into my regular Friday feature cycle. As I shared one of these posts on Wednesday last week, followed by a Shelf Control post on Friday, that puts a First Lines Friday next in line.
And of course, I’ll be back with my next Sunday Summary update this time next week!
That’s all from me in today’s Sunday Summary post. My plan for the evening is to settle in, take a cup of tea to bed and make more progress with A Game of Thrones.
What are you reading?
