The Sunday Post #1 & January Wrap Up

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

I will be using this meme as my monthly wrap-up post for this month since the start og February falls on a Sunday! :) I managed to read a decent number of books last month but I am still trying to get the hang of writing reviews again. I also ordered a whole bunch of books from Book Depository and Amazon, CAN'T WAIT TO RECEIVE THEM!

School-wise, I am suffering from a serious case of senioritis. This is my final semester of university and I am so over the grind already. :P I actually skipped an in-lecture test for the first time in my life (!!!), a few days back. Well it was only worth 3% of the final grade so its not too bad...i guess? I should probably not make that a habit though. I am enjoying my design and photog/film modules so I am surprisingly not hating school this semester. What a great ending to my study life!

In other news, I am still working on a nicer blog header but I haven't been too inspired lately. I hope to get it done by the end of this month!

Title: To All the Boys I've Loved Before
Author: Jenny Han
Published: April 15th 2014
Series: To All the Boys I've Loved Before #1
Source: ebook
Pages: 288
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all. 
Share links to you Wrap Up or Sunday Posts in the comments below and I will take a look! :)


  1. I LOVED To All The Boys I've Loved Before. It was such a nice contemporary read. I haven't read Jenny's other books, but now I want to!

    WHOA, 3k pages?! You're on fire <333

    Also, I'm a freshman and I'm already drowning so I have no idea how I'm supposed to survive as a senior to be honest. I totally understand how you'd be struggling with managing blog and school. It's a constant battle. Don't worry, I FEEL YEW.

    My Stacking the Shelves + Montly Recap here!

    1. Oh also, I just tracked my GR for my own pages and apparently, I read 5k this month. What is life?

    2. I just finished To All the Boys I've Loved Before and it was so good! :) I also read The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han, you can take a look at my review here.

      Good luck with school and blogging! :)

  2. My senior years are so far behind lol ! Enjoy and have a great week ;)

  3. I would love to here your thoughts On all the boys I've loved before am not sure to pick it up!

    Happy Reading

    1. I finished it earlier today and I thought it was pretty decent (4 stars)! Do give it a go if you don't mind that the protagonist is a little immature (in a YA sort of way), it wasn't a big deal for me but some people had issues with that. :)

      Happy reading to you too!

  4. I'm doing the Alphabet Soup Challenge too! It turns out I read a lot of books that start with C. Who knew? Have you hit the point of the semester where you realize you're graduating and won't be in school anymore and have to get a job yet? I still vividly remember the moment when that struck me! Have a great week!

    1. I've started to appreciate being in a school a little more because I know I will probably not go back once I graduate but the job part hasn't really hit me yet :P

      Thanks for dropping by! :) Have a great week too~

  5. I loved Scarlet! I cannot wait to see your review!! Sounds Like you had a fun week!! here is my weekly recap!! http://bookbabble.weebly.com/blog/sunday-post1

  6. So glad you linked up, if the end of month doesn't fall on a Sunday feel free to stop by and link up the following Sunday. My daughter had a major case of senioritis . Hang in there!

    1. I will! :) Hahah that is one serious disease.

      Thanks for dropping by!

  7. It sounds like you had a really good month of reading in January. I only managed to finish five books myself but since they were all good I am counting that as a win. Have a great week!

    1. Quality > Quantity right? :) If only I picked up better books last month, hopefully I'll have better luck this month!

      Thanks for dropping by! :) Have a great week too.

  8. Almost done with University?! Good for you. Missing that lecture reminded of the senior year of high school and how we'd blow off classes at the end of the year. Feels like a guilty pleasure doesn't it?
    I like the challenge for pages read. I'm curious how I'd do and might join that one. Doing the Alphabet Soup by Lori and need to update my challenges. I'm further along than it appears. LOL
    My Sunday Post - http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/02/01/whats-new-on-my-bookshelf-95-and-the-sunday-post/

    1. It feels amazing! :P
      The pages read challenge is such a good morale boost if you read large books. Good luck with your challenges!

      Thanks for dropping by :)
