The Sunday Post #41: Update & Some Exciting News – 6/05/2018

The Sunday PostWeekly Update

The 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 and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

What Happened off the Blog:

I still  haven’t been that active on here lately, I’ve been really busy, but I promise I’ll get better at posting. I’ve been working on more listings for my Etsy Shop, So I’ll be listing more items soon, maybe within a month, once I get more all the materials I need. I’m really excited for these new Items. 

Also, I wasn’t going to mention this yet as it’s still early stages, but I’m extremely excited about this, and I couldn’t wait, So here it is: I’m Writing a Book! I’m not going to say too much about it at the moment, like I said, early stages. But I’m really excited, and I’m having a lot of fun writing this. I will say that It’s going to be LGBT Contemporary. I have a playlist I’ve been listening to for this project while writing as well, which I might one day publicly release. I’ll keep you updated. If I had a book published, would you be interested in Reading it? Let me know in the comments!

Books Read:

7260188

Currently Reading: 

I am “currently reading” a lot of books, so I’m not going to list them here, but if you’d like to check that out, the full list is on my latest Sunday Post HERE. And I can guarantee that it hasn’t change much. I’ll be posting a full list of my “Currently Reading” books soon, where I’ll talk about more about them and maybe finally get around to reading them. 

What I Plan to Read Next:

There are A LOT of books I need to finish, so I’ll read whatever on that list next. I’ll just choose something at random from that pile. Also, 2 Days until Cast long Shadows eBook is released. I am so excited to finally read this one. This is the second novella for The Ghost of the Shadow Market by Cassandra Clare. This is one I’ve been waiting for, and most excited for.

What I’m Watching:

Recently, I’ve been watching Rise, It’s a New Musical Drama TV Show on NBC that’s based on a book – Drama High – which I’ve never read. I love this show, I’m kinda obsessed with it. The first season will consist of 10 episodes, and is 8 episodes in, the 9th episode airs on Tuesday,  I can’t watch the episodes until Wednesday though.

This is an English teacher – Lou – with a wife and three kids, the oldest of whom, Gordy, is a football player with a drinking problem. Despite having a lot on his personal plate, Lou decides in the first episode to express interest in taking over Stanton High School’s drama department. He immediately gets the job, mainly because the principal views the woman most likely to inherit the role as a “pain in the ass.” Tracey is in the middle of a production of Grease when Lou waltzes in and announces that, with exactly zero experience directing plays, he is about to take the job she’s been waiting for decades to assume, while she’ll be demoted to assistant director. Oh, and also they aren’t doing Grease anymore. They will be staging Spring Awakening, a challenging coming-of-age musical that deals child abuse, abortion, and homosexuality.

Rise also addresses social issues, including those related to class, religion, and, as previously noted, sexual orientation. In keeping with the themes of Spring Awakening, it focuses heavily on Simon, a gay student who struggles even more ferociously with his identity after he’s cast as Hänschen, a young man who has a romance, and a kissing scene, with another boy. Simon’s Catholic and conservative parents, particularly his father, take unsurprising issue with his participation in the show, creating a conflict that stretches throughout the season. 

Stanton High School’s drama department is made up of a diverse group of people with various backgrounds. I would really recommend watching it if you haven’t already, It’s not perfect, and it does have it’s flaws, but It’s a great series. Its first season may be shaky, especially at first. But I genuinely hope it gets a second season.
