Sunday Post (12) - Bye March

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

If you participate, don't forget to link up and if you leave me a comment, I will definitely check out your blog.

March is over and we just started cleaning up our garden. Cut back all the hedges, annoy the neighbours with our lawnmower. It's that time of the year again and you end up using muscles you only know you have when you work in the garden and I'm now at that age where that means: ouch, my back! 

Camp NaNoWriMo started and I'm trying to write a psychological thriller and I'm working on re-writing a children's novel that is supposed to be a sort of fantasy adventure.
Last week on my blog:
Last week in my kitchen: I tried this recipe to make a Vietnamese Beef Stew and it turned out quite delicious. 

Last week at the cinema: I went to see Get Out, which is a fun horror film with comedy elements. One of the better horror films I've seen and I really enjoyed it. I've also watched Life and I loved it. I've seen that the critics don't like it so much but realised that apparently it copied quite a bit from Alien and Aliens and I've never seen those films (I know, I know) which is probably why this one had me on the edge of my seat. I loved every second.

Next week: I still have to review Morning Star, The Color Purple and The Obelisk Gate.
And I just read this:

I've also discovered a little gem called Garfield and Oates on Netflix. If you're into musical comedy, give it a try!

I hope everyone is having a great week and I can't wait to read all of your updates :)


  1. Yay for Camp NaNo! A psychological thriller sounds AMAZING! I'm not doing it this time, but I will take part in November.

    Looking forward to your review of The Color Purple :)

  2. I love this time of year! Everything is starting to grow and the sun is shining. We are working on our yard and garden as well, so fun!

    1. It's a great season! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Good for you on working on Camp NaNoWriMo!

  4. Good luck with the writing! And I know what you mean about using muscles you didn't know you have- one afternoon out working in the yard and I'm like gah!!

    Glad you liked The Girl in Cabin 10. I did too , and agree- not spectacular but solid.

  5. A friend of mine went to see Life, and said she had to keep her eyes closed for a lot of it because it's so intense! I might need to wait until it comes on DVD, so I can fast-forward through anything that's too scary - I'm a major wuss when it comes to scary movies!

    1. I had my eyes closed as well, many many many times. Hahaha!

  6. I loathe yard work and never bother with it. We have a lawn service that takes care of the mowing and edging but I don't do anything beyond that (no planting, gardening, etc.). Kudos to you for getting out there and getting it into shape! My husband read You last year and enjoyed it. I think he read the follow-up novel as well. I've never heard of Life but then again I don't often pay much attention to movies so many seem to pass me by.

  7. Ha ha - I know what you mean about Ouch My Back! Ugh - what IS this getting older business?

    Your novel sounds fabulous! I'm looking forward to you sharing more!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and bear with me while I catch up for the millionth time this year!!! :)

    1. I hope you're having a good week and aren't too stressed!! Thanks for stopping by.
