The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Stop by and say hello!
This past week has felt like a never-ending obstacle course. I am utterly exhausted. Work has been trying for myself due to symptoms and the nonhubs for a multitude of reasons. We lost our ovens only to be left with none (you can find that rant below if interested) and my son had to leave Friday morning for a scheduled visitation that he is still never quite cheerful about. Add a few other matters into the mix while dealing with these headaches, and I feel run down. More so than I have in a while. So this weekend was a welcomed reprieve and I chose to unplug. We weny ouy to watch the new Tomb Raider and have sushi. I enjoyed the film incredibly and was pleased with the portrayal of Lara Croft. I will do my best to catch up this coming week.
I am working on reducing graphics & tweaking the blog. Not eliminating, but trimming. As my eyesight continues to waver at times, I am finding they just are not working so well. So please feel free to send feedback and comment on any changes. My goal is to keep it aesthetically pleasant but easy on the eyes. I cannot focus on “busy” blogs and I want to avoid being one. So I am weeding out some of the “unnecessary” but nothing is changing in terms of logos, etc.
Brain on Fire
By Susannah Cahalan
An award-winning memoir and instant New York Times bestseller that goes far beyond its riveting medical mystery, Brain on Fire is the powerful account of one woman’s struggle to recapture her identity.
When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she’d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?
In a swift and breathtaking narrative, Cahalan tells the astonishing true story of her descent into madness, her family’s inspiring faith in her, and the lifesaving diagnosis that nearly didn’t happen.
*I have to give pause here to admit that so far this book is terrifying, but I find it to be a fantastic read.
- Tuesday was a very light discussion of BOOK HANGOVERS & READING SLUMPS AS A BLOGGER.
- Wednesday was a blog tour for OVER RAGING TIDES. There is a tour wide giveaway that is open for 12 more days if interested.
- This Friday was a deviation as a had a small rant with THIS FRIDAY FAVORITES IS DEDICATED TO OVENS; BECAUSE I SHOULD HAVE TWO, AND I HAVE NONE.
I am still watching and listening to the same vinyl and series I have shared recently. Although I did finish The Frankenstein Chronicles on Netflix. I loved it! Have you watched it? What are you currently reading or watching?
