The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s 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.
What happened this week?
This was a busy week with some good and some bad things that happened. The good news is that I have a new author for marketing assistant work starting next year, I am really excited about this and looking forward to working with her as marketing assistant. Beside that it was a busy week, the good kind of busy, on the blog and on Lola’s Blog Tours with three tours running and a two exciting new review opportunities that went live. And I ran into an issue with bloglovin, which took up a lot of my time trying to fix it and so far failing, which got me down.
An author who I organized a tour for wrote this awesome post on her Goodreads blog to detail what it’s like to tour with me and she describes the process of a blog tour pretty well.
And like I mentioned I ran into an issue with blogovin. I never had trouble with them before, but they weren’t showing my posts this week. Thanks to a nice blogger to let me know about it. I contacted bloglovin, but they can’t do anything and basically told me it’s my problem and I have to fix it myself. My feed loads so slowly their servers just don’t stop by anymore at all. I also researched on internet and asked in a wordpress group for help and it’s probably an issue with my host/ server and there’s anothing I can do about it, except contact them and hope they can fix it.
And ofcourse my other site that’s hosted on the same server and has all the same plugins and such doesn’t have any issues, which is weird. So I thought it might have to dow ith my plugins and theme on my blog. I switched my theme, deactivated all my plugins and the problem was still there. So I am still no further than when I started and spent hours trying to figure it out.
Things with my blog like this stress me out and it’s so frustrating trying to figure out what’s wrong and solve it. And a lot of my followers are on bloglovin and now they can’t see my posts that’s pretty sad :(. So if you’re follow me with bloglovin and want to be garanteed you’re receiving my post, please subscribe by e-mail for now, the sign-up widget is in the sidebar. I think feedly and other blog following sites are still working, it only seems to be a problem with bloglovin. I am caling my host provider next week to hope they can help fix the problem and if that doesn’t work I am out of ideas.
Random Picture(s) of the Week
We saw these adorable penguin themed christmas ice creams at our supermarket and couldn’t resist buying them. They are almost too cool to eat, but I am happy we did as they tastes very good.
And this is the other card I received from the recipe exchange. This one is from Renee. She sent me a card and a piece of paper filled with recipes. The recipes are for: apricot brandy slush, sugar cookies, peanut butter balls, caramel corn, zucchini casserole and baked spaghetti.

Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers #1)
by Brenda Drake

You can find Thief of Lies on Goodreads
Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.
Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and her own, before both are destroyed.
Indestructible (Indestructible #1)
by Emma L. Adams

Two years ago, the fiends invaded, with a devastating explosion that split the world in two. Even now, energy blasts strike without warning, destroying everything in their paths. The fiends hunt anyone unlucky enough to escape.
My name is Leah. An energy blast killed my group. It should have killed me, too. Instead, I woke up alone in the wilderness, stalked by the fiends.
My only hope is the red-cloaked strangers who call themselves the Pyros. They can do the impossible and make flames shoot from their hands. Right now, my one chance for safety — and revenge — is with them.
But they’re keeping secrets from me. Like those skeletons hidden under their base. And the reasons I developed a psychic link with someone who can’t stand the sight of me — after he saved my life.
If I don’t uncover the truth about why the world ended the first time, my new safe haven might go up in smoke…
