Sunday Post #1: Look Who's Going Back to School!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer

Hi readers! Welcome to my very first Sunday Post! This week has been a pretty slow week for me at home. Which is nice because it means I can read and blog and comment back to everyone. It felt like work was really busy everyday and I am just wiped out. I'm looking forward to a long weekend of just reading, blogging, cleaning and relaxing. 

My most exciting news this week is that I've been accepted into an accelerated program with my local school district in the hopes of finally becoming a special education teacher! It's a ten week program that starts in August and at the end, I will be eligible to be hired with the school district almost immediately afterward as a regular, full-time teacher! It's going to be a lot of work for the next three years or so, but once I earn my standard teaching licence, I know it will all be worth it!

Currently Reading:

I'm currently reading The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. I just started it but since I have a long weekend I hoping I can knock it out and move on to P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han. I'm also currently listening to If I Can't Have You by Gregg Olson. I have a little bit of a thing with true crime and this book is pretty crazy because it's obvious that her husband killed her. I'm really interested to see where this is going because apparently something happens to the children as well. 

Last Week on the Blog:

Book Haul:

Clearly, I did a thing, I went to my local library because they were having a sale. This isn't even half of the books I picked up! They do a bag sale where you can fill a whole bag and it's only $5. So I stuffed my bag full. Here's what I got:

The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri
Armada by Ernest Cline
The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
Shopgirl by Steve Martin

That's all for me this week. I hope everyone had a great week and that we all have all the time in the world to read what we want. Happy reading friends! 


  1. The Distant Hours is one of my favorite books!! I just re-read it earlier this year. All her books are just so amazing - I hope you love it!

  2. Congrats on getting accepted! That's wonderful because there is definitely a need for more special education teachers.

    The Bear and the Nightingale is one of my favorite 2017 releases so I hope you enjoy it.

  3. Congrats on being accepted into the programme you want. I really need to read a Jenny Han book hopefully before the summer ends.

  4. How are you liking The Bear and the Nightingale so far? (Unless it's too soon to tell...)

    1. I'm not sure yet. I didn't get a chance to read today like I thought I would so I'm still less than 50 pages in. I hope I love it though!

  5. Welcome to the Sunday Post! And congrats on being accepted into the program! That's a pretty great haul for $5! Love sales like that. Armada I still have to read, and that Katherine Howe book has a pretty freaky cover.

    Have a great week!

  6. oh I wanted to read P.S I still love you! Probably because I'm having a contemporary craving right now.

    Have a great week!
