The Sunday Post: 20/3/2016

a5bef9db-6851-4a10-be79-b62d087e1be9_zpsga1luhrdThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. This is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books…share them!

As I had predicted last week, I did have a problem keeping to my schedule again and I do have a good excuse for it. I was traveling to Ioannina this week and it was kinda exhausting.

OTHER NEWS:

Nothing especially exciting happened this past week. My life is kinda boring. However, this week is going to be quite busy for me so I hope I’ll have something more exciting to share with you.

CURRENTLY READING:

12881842Room by Emma Donoghue. Just started it today.

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it’s where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it’s not enough…not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son’s bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, Room is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.

NEXT I WILL READ:8747862

Τι μας έμαθαν επιτέλους οι Αρχαίοι Έλληνες; (So What Have We Laern From The Ancient Greeks?) by Dimitris Sarandakos.
