Week in Review (5)
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer in which bloggers are able to share news and happenings in their lives from the past week on their blog.
It’s been an interesting week this past week! I’ve relaxed a lot, that’s for sure, since it’s the summer break! One of the books I ordered finally came in the mail. It’s called The Silk Roads: A New History of the World by Peter Frankopan. The following is a picture of cover as well as the summary of the book from Goodreads:
“For centuries, fame and fortune were to be found in the west – in the New World of the Americas. Today, it is the east which calls out to those in search of riches and adventure. Sweeping right across Central Asia and deep into China and India, a region that once took centre stage is again rising to dominate global politics, commerce and culture.
A major reassessment of world history, The Silk Roads is a dazzling exploration of the forces that have driven the rise and fall of empires, determined the flow of ideas and goods and are now heralding a new dawn in international affairs. “
I will be reading this novel on vacation, so stay tuned for a review that will possibly be coming up soon. It seems like a great book for history buffs, judging off of the summary., but also for those who are interested in learning about history. I fall in the latter category!
Moreover, I have an interview coming up next week for a job at my university, so I have also been prepping for that this week.
I’ve also started watching Suits, and it’s honestly too good! I’m so excited to get into it since I’m still on season 1! 😃
Final thing, just as a little update, I’ve started a YouTube Channel a few weeks ago and I would love for you to check it out. I’ll be uploading every Monday & Friday, so be sure to subscribe if you would like to.
The following are three of my favourite videos that I’ve uploaded so far, and it’d be great if you could check it out when you have time.
Thank you so much for checking out my post, and please comment a link to your Sunday Post as I would love to check it out as well. Thanks again 💗

Cannot Wait Wednesday!!! (5)
Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Wishful Endings! This is where bloggers discuss the books that they’re excited to read, as well as those that are not yet published. This meme is a great way to inform others of books that are yet to be released, and to hype the books up!
With the start of summer break, I have been looking for some new books to read and I thought that this one seemed quite intriguing. Hidden by Kelli Clare has just recently been published, and I have not seen it in my local bookstore as of yet, but look forward to hopefully finding it very soon. The following is a short excerpt of the novel from Goodreads:
“Small-town Connecticut art teacher Ellie James finds the intense connection she’s longing for when she meets Will Hastings, a seductive Englishman with an alluring darkness. But just days later, her sister and grandmother are murdered and she must confront the unthinkable: is Will a man she can trust, a killer—or both?
After surviving a near-fatal attempt on her life, Ellie makes a desperate move: she takes her young niece Lissie and runs to England with Will. There, fiery passion becomes possession, London paparazzi call her by another name, and assassins of a secret society close in after the stunning truth about Ellie’s family is exposed. When Will suddenly disappears after putting a ring on her finger, Ellie must find the strength to elude assassins, disentangle herself from the haunting lies she’s lived for twenty-seven years, and answer one pressing question: who is Ellie James?”
What do you all think of this one? I personally love mystery / crime novels, so this one definitely sparked my interest. Let me know what you think of Hidden and leave a link to your CWW post below.
