The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.  
I last did one of these about a month ago. Here is what I have been up to on the blog since then. 
Recent reviews of books: 

City of Bones by Martha Wells (fantasy)

The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin (science fiction) This is one of my favorite books!


Why Poetry
 by Matthew Zapruder (nonfiction)

Upcoming reviews:
A Vindication of the Rights of Woman — Mary Wollstonecraft
Declare — Tim Powers (fantasy, currently listening on audio)

Bout of Books 25: May 13-19 sign up post!

Almost a year ago, I selected the 17th century poem “Corinna’s Going a-Maying” (Robert Herrick)  for the weekly feature The Monday Poem in a  GoodReads group, All About Books. I didn’t write about it, but you can read the poem here with some helpful annotations. Herrick’s best-known poem is “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time,” on a similar theme. The first stanza:

Get up, get up for shame, the blooming morn
Upon her wings presents the god unshorn.
    See how Aurora throws her fair
    Fresh-quilted colors through the air:
    Get up, sweet slug-a-bed, and see
    The dew bespangling herb and tree.
Each flower has wept and bow’d toward the east
Above an hour since: yet you not dress’d;
    Nay! not so much as out of bed?
    When all the birds have matins said
    And sung their thankful hymns, ’tis sin,
    Nay, profanation to keep in,
Whereas a thousand virgins on this day
Spring, sooner than the lark, to fetch in May.

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.

  1. I've never read The Left Hand of Darkness although I've liked some of her other books! I should get that one at some point and try it.

  2. I'm a fan of Ursula LeGuin but it's been years since I read her books. I love Martha Wells' Murderbot so I'll have to check out her other work one of these days. Happy reading!Anne – Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post
