The Sunday Post #10

The Sunday Post

Real Life

For one of the first times I feel like I'm totally at loss for what to put here. I feel like I've had a really rubbish week but can't quite figure out why. Oh well one of those things I guess. My biggest event of this week has been that my car is in for repairs, and despite only being able to drive for just over a month I'm actually feeling pretty lost without it! Oh and there's been some snow, but it was pretty pathetic really!

Read This Week

So my reading this week...The Boleyn Deceit dragged me straigh back into Andersen's alternative history, and even after I'd finished I wanted to be straight back in! Fast gave me something I've been after for ages...real teenage relationships, it is seriously worth a read that one! And Tales of the Jazz Age reassured me that my dislike of The Great Gatsby isn't an anomaly, I just genuinely don't like Fitzgerald's writing.

Costs of the Week

This week my reading (which includes the book I am currently reading) should have cost: £16.95, however I actually spent £0.00 on the books that I've read.
