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?
I don’t really have a lot to tell about this week either. It’s been the same as previous weeks, busy in the good sense of the word. I spent a lot of time working on tours, sending out media kits and two new cover reveals and a book blitz went live this week. I also had some time for some reading and gaming in the evenings. I even managed to make a cheesecake on Friday evening, so that was good. I did got two headaches in the same week, which were annoying.
Vincent Morrone interview me about Lola’s Blog Tours on his site. You can read the interview here.
And I tried the neutral flavoured oatly (oat based drink I posted about two weeks ago) and I disliked it, so no neutral flavoured oatly for me, I’ll stick with the orange mango flavour. I bought another package of that flavour this week, yum!
Random Picture(s) of the Week
Here in the Netherlands a common dessert is “Vla”, which is similar to custard. They sell “vla” in lots of different flavours here, the more normal ones are vanilla, chocolate, caramel, strawberry or “dubbelvla” which contains two flavours of vla. There are also some stranger flavours like vla with pieces of chocolate or with pieces of fruit depending on the season. I like most flavours of vla, so i always like trying out new flavours. And this variety they only have around Easter, it’s mandarin and orange vla and it’s really good!

Never Letting Go

You can find Never Letting Go on Goodreads
It’s hard piecing things together after waking up in a random apartment with no memory of who you are, surrounded by mostly welcoming strangers. The only thing remaining of her past is the tattooed name imprinted on her skin. But with no place to go, these strangers decide to take her in and name her Mia.
Inexplicable things start happening to Mia within the four walls of her confinement, including her presently mute status, strange abilities, and secretive roommates harboring their own hidden agendas. With a serial killer on the loose, this apartment is her only place of refuge.
But when she finally remembers who she really is, her refuge is no longer safe. Mia wakes up to find out her name isn’t Mia at all, and that her life is nothing but a walking tragedy. Her previous actions of refusing to let go of the only person with the power to break her heart leaves dire consequences.
Especially since it involved striking a deal with the devil.

You can find Ancient Magic on Goodreads
I’m good at two things: finding treasure and killing demons. Lying low is a close third—but not because I want to be good at hiding. I have to be. I’m a FireSoul, one of the unlucky few to inherit a piece of the dragon’s soul. Being born with the dragon’s covetousness should be a sweet gig – I have the power to find and steal any type of treasure, including the powers of other supernaturals.
But it doesn’t come without a price – stealing powers requires that I kill, and others would destroy me if they discover what I am. In a world full of magic, hiding my species is the only way to survive. Finding magical artifacts is the only way to pay the bills. It’s a dangerous job when you can barely use your magic, but that’s one of the things I like about it.
When Aidan Merrick, the most powerful shifter in the city, hired me to find an ancient scroll, I didn’t want to take the job. His immense amount of power reminds me of too much of murky memories from a past I can’t remember. But I don’t have a choice. The scroll reveals what I am. And if anyone finds out, I’m dead.
