The Sunday Post #18: I used to think that my life was a tragedy, but now I realize, it’s a comedy

This week on the blog:
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
The Sunday Post 18

Books finished this week:
Great Expectations

Books that I was reading this week ~
Loonshots: How to nurture the crazy ideas that win wars, cure diseases and transform industries by Safi Bachall

Goodreads Challenge
39/50 books ~ 1 book ahead of the schedule. However, I dropped my challenge down by 100 books so am I really ahead of anything.

Other than that I haven’t really had the interest for reading lately. Which has also reflected heavily on my blog. It’s not that I don’t want to read but I can’t seem to pick a book up either. And then I don’t care that much what you guys have been reading either.

What else. It’s October! When did that happen. I love October though. You have Halloween, Pumpkin spice Latte, Octoberfest, leaves turn gold… a great time of the year.

I organized a meetup yesterday for Joker. What a phenomenal film! And spoiler alert! Phoenix did something unimaginable playing that part. It provoked so many thoughts. I thought of how we had this school stabbing in Kuopio couple of days back and everyone described the perp as quiet and gentlebut bullied throughout school. So it’s not that far off from reality. Before, I used to think that it must have been this single bad life event that finally caused Joker to go insane. But here, we it was one bad thing and these bad things just kept piling up. How fragile our system is and how fragile the people are. Also that this world is average at best and Gotham is less than average. Nothing works and of course people have a hard time navigating in this kind of a world. What a plot, the portrayal of what it’s like to go mad. So dark and very heartbreaking. I decided to go to see it again next week. If you only goes to movies once a year, this is the time.

How’s your week been?

Add yours

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed The Joker. It sounds like it leaves you with a lot to think about. I’m always confused about people who do shootings at random people, though I know lots of people feel alienated and isolated.

    I hope you find something good to read this week. I’m not sure where I’m going next after The Goldfinch (talk about a book filled with alienated and isolated people!)

    Have a great week!

    1. It’s absolutely fantastic movie and a lot to think about yes. It doesn’t confuse me really. We don’t do anything to stop the bullies and then we act surprised. Or we cut support from mental health facilities and find it strange when something happens. Just a few examples.

      The Goldfinch is really good though it’s been couple of years since I read it. Hope you enjoy it

  2. Pumpkin spice lattes- one of my favorite parts of October! Although how it’s October already when it feels like September just started is beyond me… anyway I’m the same, my reading has been off and I haven’t read or reviewed a book in weeks. Just taking a break I guess! It happens lol.

    The Joker sounds fascinating especially with all the stuff going on right now with stabbings and shootings and everything.

  3. I stopped reading after SPOILER because I want to see The Joker haha. I hope you get out of your slump soon. I took a YEAR OFF from the book community all together because I hit a major slump like that.

    1. You’re in for a treat. Let me know what you think. Ah that’s a long time but you’re a LEGEND for returning back to blogosphere where you belong😁🏆
