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 week was a lot better than the previous one, less stress, but still busy enough. I’ve been working on marketing assistant work and some tours. A new cover reveal sign-up post went live on Lola’s Blog Tours!
And I tried to catch up on comments on the blog, as I had gotten behind last week. I pretty much stayed about a day behind with comments for the whole week, but I think I am finally caught up again, yay! I also made some time for reading, gaming and baking this week. Oh and I won an amazon gift card thanks to the New release Q1 recap giveaway Lexie from Unconventional Book Views did. So all in all it was a good week.
I made peach crumble this week, it was so good! I used my Apple Crumble recipe, but instead of apples added canned peaches. We had this can left from my boyfriend his Christmas package or something like that and I suddenly had this strange idea to give it a try for crumble as the apples we had didn’t look to good anymore, but I did want crumble. So peach crumble was born, yum! It was so good!
And there are so many good books being released lately, I wish I could read them all right now! I even made a list of books I have to read next (for both my Kobo and ipad!) and even then I know I can’t review them all close to release day sadly. And I never make a list of my next books, but I don’t mind at the moment as they are all books I want to read as soon as possible.
Random Picture(s) of the Week
Lately my boyfriend has been eating “Leverworst” more regularly, it’s a sausage which contains some liver as well so it’s called literally translated liver sausage, even though not even 30% of it is livers. Here in the Netherlands liver sausage is quite common, most stores sell multiple brands. And on birthdays you can usually see a plate with liver sausage, salami and cheese on the table or go around the room. Do they sell liver sausage where you live and do you like it?

A sinister phone call in the middle of the night throws tearoom owner, Gemma Rose, straight into the heart of a new murder mystery—this time with her friend, Seth, arrested as the key suspect! The grisly killing in the cloisters of an old Oxford college points to a bitter feud within the University—but Gemma finds unexpected clues popping up in her tiny Cotswolds village.
Meanwhile, her love life is in turmoil as Gemma struggles to decide between eminent doctor, Lincoln Green, and sexy CID detective, Devlin O’Connor… whilst her quaint English tearoom is in hot water as she struggles to find a new baking chef.
With her exasperating mother and her mischievous little tabby cat, Muesli, driving her nutty as a fruitcake—and the nosy Old Biddies at her heels—Gemma must crack her toughest case yet if she is to save her friend from a life behind bars.
** Traditional English Chelsea Bun recipe at the end of the story!
Yours Truly (Happily Ever After #2)
by Jen Meyers

You can find Yours Truly on Goodreads
Willow Truly doesn’t need a man. Never has, never will. At least, not in the long-term. She’s as keen for a roll in the sack as the next girl, but beyond that, a man’s usefulness runs out quick.
A girl’s got to take care of herself, Will’s learned, because as soon as you start to rely on a man, he breaks your heart. She’s bound and determined to never let THAT happen again, so she’s sworn off love, marriage, and living happily ever after. As the writer of a snarky dating column in Du Jour magazine, she’s pretty much guaranteed no man will stick around for long…and she’s totally okay with that.
Unless, of course, we’re talking about Josh. Her all-around favorite guy and best friend outside of The Girls, Josh is the only man Will can’t date. Not if she wants to keep him in her life—and she does. More than anything.
However, to keep him, Will may have to go against everything she believes to be true and take a chance on love again. And on Josh. Because if she doesn’t…Will just may break her own heart.
