sundaypostThe 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,

This week flew by fast, which is funny because it’s one of the weeks that I’ve been dreading the most this month. Anyways I’m so glad that the adult doctor stuff is done for now (you’d think getting needles stuck in your arm or wherever gets easier every time but it never does. And trust me when I say getting an IV needle in is ten times worse than getting a blood test done.) and I’m just resting up a bit before heading back to work on Monday. Speaking of resting up I finished watching a really cute Taiwanese drama the other day. The plot is a bit of a cliche (but the trope is my favorite enemy to friends to lovers trope…god, the slow burning romance and feels…) and while the ex is a bit pathetic and clingy, I love how I can rely on Taiwanese dramas to have happy endings for everyone (seriously like the whole cast eventually end up falling in love with someone in the end).

  1. Time is passing way too fast. There never seems to be enough hours in the day. I hope you enjoy your Sunday and happy reading.

    1. There’s never seem to be time to do anything.

  2. Glad everything went well this week! Going to the doctor is never fun regardless of age. My little man had to go to an allergist and have skin testing done….24 needles later he was a pro! Me on the other hand…I was a nervous wreck. Did NOT like seeing him stuck so much. Hope you have a fantastic week and enjoy your new reads 😀

    1. Glad your little guy turned out to be okay. It’s definitely never fun.

  3. I HATE IV needles. Seriously the worst part of labor was the IV. Not a fan! I’m not much of a doctor fan either. Glad this week passed quickly especially since you were dreading it. Hope next week is slower but much more fun with no needles. Have a great week!

    1. The worse part about having IV needles is getting them out. I know that’s not supposed to hurt but I find it worse than when they put it in your arm.

  4. I haven’t had much experience with IVs. I had to have them when I was hospitalized as a toddler for snakebite, and when I had my surgery a couple years ago (but I was under for all but 30 minutes of having it). I do remember being uncomfortable to even move, though. Glad that the doctor visit is behind you. Happy reading!

    1. Hope all turned out well with your surgery. Yeah even if you want to do something and keep from being bored for the wait it’s really hard to get comfortable with the needle in your arm.

  5. Ugh, you mention needles and IVs and I run. I hate that stuff! *hides* I loved A Week of Mondays! Wasn’t it great? The other Brody book I really liked as 52 Reasons to Hate My Father. I hope you have a great week, Jackie! =)

    1. I wish I could run away from them too, but it’s inevitable. Yup, it was really good! I haven’t read a lot of books by Jessica Brody. The only other ones I read was the Unremembered series. I might check out her other books sometimes. Thanks for the rec.

  6. I’m a nurse, and I think part of why I became a nurse was because needles and wounds don’t scare me. Now saying that, I am frightened of all kinds of other ridiculous things. I was the person in nursing school that volunteered to get stuck by other students, also I have great veins.
    Glad to hear that is behind you now. Sorry that it was unpleasant for you. Time is going by really fast, I can’t believe it is already October!

    1. lol I have so many other fears on top of needles. But, wow! I’m glad to hear you’re not scared of needles and wounds. I realized that if I get distracted then the needles won’t seem as bad, but otherwise it’s really hard to convince myself that if other people can go through this without flinching then I can do it too.

  7. I need to read Bright Smoke Cold Fire, although I still have one other of Hodge’s books to read as well. Hope you have a good week!

    1. I’ve only read Crimson Bound. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire definitely sounds intriguing. I heard it was a Romeo and Juliet retelling of sorts…
