Dear Sunday: Vacation time!!

Dear Sunday is my weekly post participating in the Caffeinated Book Reviewer series.

It's finally here. To those of you with real adult jobs, this probably sounds insufferable. After all, I did have a vacation back the first week of July. It seems outlandish that I have another one coming up but y'all there aren't many perks of being in grad school so let me have this. 

This a pre-written post, not to take any excitement out of the illusion that this was written right before you're reading it. I'm currently running some code that I wrote for a project at work and while I wait for it to finish-- and fail because holy cow do I hate Allan variances-- I thought I would quickly write up my Sunday post. Becauseeee as you read this, my college friends will be starting to filter into my town and I will be blissfully busy catching up with peeps I haven't seen for at least one year, if not more. 

Even though I will be busy this coming week, I'm hoping to have a couple of posts up. My reading life has hit a roadblock recently-- I have two e-books that I'm not entirely loving...which means I just haven't been reading at all. So, I will forgo writing a review this week, as I prefer to write reviews on books that I have recently read.

[[Picture explanation: This past week I had to travel to a conference to present my work, which meant 4 hours of driving for 4 hours of conference, which I'm a little miffed at, let's move on. When I got home after the long day, my cat was pretty happy to see me]]


  • Top Ten Tuesday: 5 Books for Scientists 
  • ............who knows...

And that's it! I don't foresee much reading happening this week, so we'll see if my review schedule ever recovers. But, you know, it seems like a pretty good trade off to me :) 

What about you? Do you prefer to review books you just finished or do you like to review old books?

  3. You can never have too many vacations! Hope you have a great week with friends! I can review older books or newer ones, no real preference I guess, although since blogging I definitely read more new releases- so I guess I review those more.
