Sunday Post #120


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer (image above belongs to @ Caffeinated Book 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 am also linking The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz where bloggers discuss what they are reading and other bookish topics.


I had some bad days this week, some people can just let you down in some cruel ways. Luckily, I have great friends and family to cheer me up.
In other news, I started teaching in 'real life' again :) I now have about 150 pupils, so going from seeing not that many people to 150 was a bit of a shock to the system but I'm enjoying teaching this way again. Still I'm always very careful and a bit nervous, trying to disinfect everything takes up a lot of time.

Blog and books

I started reading my first audiobook on my way to work (on the train). It's a pleasant experience, which I hope to do more often. I chose Born a Crime by Trevor Noah as my first audiobook. I've listened to about 20% and I'm truly enjoying it. I definitely think it's a plus to listen to Trevor Noah himself.

Becoming is another book I'd like to get as an audiobook, although I fear I won't have enough space on my phone, as I already had to delete some apps to download Born a Crime.

Movies and TV Shows

I watched one film this week, the new adaptation of Emma. Emma and Pride and Prejudice are my favourite Austen novels. I was very excited to watch the new film but now I do have some problems with it. I personally believe the added humoristic elements were totally unnecessary. Therefore, although I enjoyed it, I still prefer the older versions.

I also watched the new episodes of Lucifer, I enjoyed it but found some parts very predictable.

What did you read or watch recently?

As always please leave some recommendations on what I should read or watch next!

Have a wonderful day everyone!


  1. Our school year started on August 17th and it was so much fun to teach in real life again! It was, indeed, a bit weird with all the cleaning stuff and I was still a bit nervous, but you'll get used to it, I hope!

    Have fun :)

  2. Wow. You have 150 pupils now. That seems like a lot. I hope everything goes well. I see the teachers where I worked before I retired are wearing big astronaut-type masks. I hope all teachers are able to work safely.

    I loved Becoming. Michelle Obama's parents were exceptional parents, I thought. I still haven't gotten around to Born a Crime.

    I'm with you; I liked the older versions of Emma.

    We tried Umbrella Academy this week. I was surprised to see how much my husband liked it.

    I hope you have a good week!

  3. I haven't watched that Emma adaptation but want to. Not sure exactly what you are teaching but 150 students sounds like a lot. Good luck. My Sunday Salon posting

  4. 150 pupils is a lot, you must be super organised and patient!!

    I’m not a big audiobook listener but I like listening to autobiographies, I’m listening to Tan France from Queer Eyes book just now and it’s really enjoyable.

    Have a good week.

  5. Oh no I'm sorry about the bad days, but glad to hear you have people in your corner for support. Hang in there! And good luck with school reopening- that sounds like a lot of pupils, I hope everything goes great!

    Hope you are good this week!

  6. So sorry about the bad days. I hope you're doing somewhat okay now. Everytime I see someone mention Lucifer I am reminded that I haven't started the latest season yet. I just can't seem to get around to it. Hopefully soon though.
