Sunday Post (169) / Stacking the Shelves (149)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello, Jackie here,

May was a pretty uneventful month with the exception of going to YALLWEST and my birthday. I didn’t read as much because of all the knitting (yeah I’m still working on a Mother’s Day project that’ll probably not get finished by Christmas at the rate I’m knitting at…oops!), but the few that I read were exceptionally awesome that made me slip into a bit of a reading lull. When you think you’re out of a reading slump it pulls you back in again.  *sighs*

No books for this week. Gotta catch up on all those ARCs and books I received/bought back in April. There’s some that I’m looking forward to getting my hands on next month though.

  1. Well, the knitting project could always be used next Mother’s Day. 😀 Have a great week and enjoy your reading.

    1. True, but I really want to finish this project up before Christmas so I’m going to try my best to make that happen.

  2. Slumps are hard. It’s hard work getting out of one. Hope you have a great week.

    1. It is, especially if you really really want to read.

  3. I need to find the right kind of wool for something I want to knit… I want a hand-made blanket that I can arm-knit! It looks really comfy, I just need the soft wool to create it 🙂
    Have you thought of audiobooks you can listen to while you knit? I enjoy doing something else while listening to audios, it keeps my mind on what I’m listening to.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. I never tried arm knitting, but it looks interesting. Hope you find the perfect yarn.

      Tried audiobooks a few times, but not exactly my cup of tea. I usually get distracted and end up frustrating trying to re-find my place. But, I’m glad that audiobooks works for you.

  4. I can’t knit but I crochet sometimes when my hands let me, I’m very slow as well. I agree with Lexxie try audiobooks, I listen to them at work all the time.

    1. Ooh I used to crochet too, but I stopped when I picked up knitting and fell in love with it. I’ll probably give audiobooks another shot. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I don’t knit but I do crochet 😀 It’s a great mind-numbing way to spend my time, especially since I learned how much I enjoy audiobooks 😉 Like Lexie said, try an audio while you knit. There’s a summer program called Audiobook Sync that releases 2 audiobooks a week for free. It’s really a great program! Hope you have a great week 😀

    1. I feel the same way with knitting. I never heard of the program, but it sounds interesting. Thanks for the suggestion.

  6. I fully intend to learn how to knit soon and I have a feeling my progress will be painfully slow! But progress is progress! Sorry to hear you got pulled back into your slump. Slumps are so mean! Hopefully you’ll be able to shake it for good soon. Have a great week!

    1. Do it! My knitting is slow too, but you’ll get faster the more you knit I think.

  7. I really wish I could knit but I am not the most patient student as my Aunt found out!

    Have a great week!

  8. I don’t knit but I used to crochet! Eeeekkk no time to do that now tho! You can def listen to audiobooks while knitting.. but it does take some practice to separate those two! I multitask this way! 😊

    Btw you went to Yallwest? We could have totally met up!

  9. Throughout the spring I was in a continual loop of slump followed by deceptive non-slump that was really a slump in disguise. I hope June is a better reading month!

  10. I’ve tried knitting on several occasions…I just don’t have the patience, or the attention span! My mum is a champion knitter though, and thankfully for me she takes requests, so I’ve made off like a bandit with some pretty sweet stuff. I still remember the My Little Pony sweater she made for me when I was in preschool, pretty much the fashion highlight of my life. 🙂

  11. I have never tried knitting lol XD all i can say is enjoy it! Happy Reading! 🙂

  12. oh yay for a knitting project!!! I use to crochet all the time, but just don’t have the time for it anymore. Maybe once life settles down I can get back to that again. Hope you get some fun reading done.
