How can you read too much you say? You can when you end up behind on everything else. / I am making some progress on learning Twitter.
The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer, is a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Caution: Her site has sidebar ads that sometimes contain cover images which may be offensive to some.
I had an extra day off this week and went a little nuts with my reading. But that means that I got behind on writing posts (and also on unimportant things like laundry, dishes, etc).

- "On the Lack of Chronic Illness Rep in YA" by Ava Jae @ Writability (Thanks to Nicole @ Reading Books With Coffee for the link)
"This is the message we’re giving our chronically ill kids: your stories are only worth telling if you die or have a miracle.
This is the message we’re giving our chronically ill kids: you can only be happy if you aren’t Sick.
This is the message we’re giving our able-bodied kids: Sick kids are Tragic Figures there to teach you to Appreciate Your Lives."
- "When Does a Negative Opinion Cross a Line?" @ Kourtni Reads
"The reason I’m writing this post is to remind people that your opinion is not going to be universal and you shouldn’t expect it to be nor should you try to force people to hold the same opinion you have. It’s okay to have a negative opinion of something or to not be excited for something that a lot of other people are looking forward to. It’s not okay to try to ruin that excitement or those positive feelings for other people."
