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 nice and productive week. A tad too busy at times. I worked on some new tours, some of which are live already and some not. And the tour for Forever and One week ran this week and a cover reveal I organized took place this Saturday. Besides that it was a pretty normal week, I ruined my plan of getting less new books again this week by getting three new ones, while I was doing so well last week with my only one new book. And I fell behind on replying to comments again, this is becoming a trend now and I don’t like it. I hope I can catch-up on comments soon!

Book Deals

After the nice comments I got about the deals last week I decided to keep doing this if a book I have read or plan to read is on sale.

Today I got a freebie deal for you, for Forever Hers. Today is the last day it’s free, so make sure to grab it soon! It’s an original paranormal romance, with spirits who can fulfill wishes, realistic characters and a great romance with fun banter between the characters.

And face Time is still on sale for only 0.99$ till the end of the month, so make sure to grab your cop of this awesome romance book! One of the best romance books I’ve ever read!

Random Picture(s) of the Week

A while ago I bought these peanut butter oreo’s. Normally we only have the plain flavour here and plain with chocolate, so I was excited to see another flavour. Too bad it wasn’t as good as I hoped, they aren’t bad, but I prefer the plain ones. What is your favourite flavour of oreo’s

Willow and her brothers, Elon and Linden, want to build the best science fair project ever, and their plan to build a quadcopter that can fly itself is sure to win. But they’re up against stiff competition, including Willow’s best friends.

The science fair takes an unexpected backseat when students at Mt. Hood Elementary start getting sick, including Willow. Everyone thinks it’s just a stomach flu, but Willow suspects there’s something wrong with the school lunches.

Willow, Elon, and Linden will have to work together, using their autonomous quadcopter and all their detective skills to trace their food back to its source to solve The Case of the Wilted Broccoli.

December has set in and just when the rural town of Chikata is recovering from one murder, Mei and her new boyfriend, Yasahiro, find their friend, Etsuko, dead in her apartment. Etsuko was sweet and talented, and now everyone suspects her longtime boyfriend killed her. Mei doesn’t believe it, though, and she vows to help solve the crime.

But Mei has more to think about than murder. With the barn gone and their vegetable stores destroyed, she and her mother are down to their last canned goods and no money for heat. Mei’s mom is fortunate to find work, but Mei must fend for herself, get a job, and keep their financial situation a secret from Yasahiro. In pursuit of paying work, she stumbles onto a new witness to the crime, and before long, the dead woman’s secret life unravels before everyone’s eyes. Half-starving and out of her element, Mei is on thin ice, and it’s going to take a whole lot of ingenuity and quick thinking to solve the crime before the killer gets to her as well.

Sweet Little LiesSweet Little Lies (Heartbreaker Bay #1)

Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.

Fall for him—hard . . .

Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . . .

  1. I also did well and only got one book last week but somehow ended up with three this week. But one of them I already knew I’d be getting and was just waiting for the author to finish edits, so technically that one didn’t make my TBR grow any lol. I also think it’s funny that just as I stopped posted book deals, you started posting them 😛 We have some weird coincidental stuff going on right now.

    But yuck, peanut butter Oreos? We definitely don’t have any weird similarities there lol because I hate peanut butter. I haven’t had Oeros in forever, but I’ve never liked any of the flavored ones. Then again I’m also one of those weird minority people who likes the cookie part better than the cream. So maybe my opinion doesn’t even count 😛

    Anyway, enjoy your new books and have a great week!

    • I already knew I would be getting one of these and am currently reading two of the books I got new this week, so I don’t feel too bad, although I can’t seem to do well and only get one new book for a few weeks in a row.
      That sure is a weird coincidence. I wanted to give an extra shout out as two books I gave 5 stars were on sale last week and then decided to just keep including it if I had good deals to share.

      I like oreo’s and peanut butter, but the peanut butter oreo’s were a bit disappointing. I think I also prefer the cookie part of an oreo, I often tear of the top part and eat it like that and then the other half with cream.
      I love peanut butter, I have this peanut butter pasta dish that I like and a peanut sauce dip for my spring rolls. Oh and peanut butter cookies are the best! I should make those again sometime. I hardly every eat peanut butter plain, but I like it in bakings and dishes.

    • I wish they sold more flavours here, we only have the plain ones and plain covered with chocolate. I can’t imagine how watermelon oreo’s would taste.

  2. I like the Book Deals idea. Every week I plan to do that on my STS, telling people if the books are on sale at that time-but I keep forgetting! I always seem to run out of time doing my STS! The only Oreos in my local shops are the normal ones-I’d LOVE to try other versions…

    • I usually set-up my Sunday posts in advance and this time I already knew of the deals books that I wanted to feature, I don’t have any yet for next week, so I might skip it then if I don’t have any deals to share.
      Same here we only have normal ones and the chocolate covered ones and I want to try more flavours.

    • I did replies and commenting backs for 3 days worth of posts yesterday, whew. I finally feel a bit more caught up, now let’s hope I can do most of the Sunday posts comments today. I really dislike falling behind it makes me feel stressed and I want to reply and comment back to everyone as I really appreciate all the comments.

  3. It’s just too hard not to get new books lol. And I like the book deals section- that’s nice to see. I don’t know about peanut butter Oreos- never seen those! I’m not a huge Oreo fan so I probably wouldn’t like ’em- but you never know. I do like peanut butter and chocolate ice cream lol. It’s funny how I like some things in combination but don’t like the thing by itself…
    Greg recently posted…Sunday Post #144My Profile

    • I am glad to hear you like the deals section, not sure if I will include it every week or only if a book I know is discounted.
      I do like peanut butter and peanut butter and chocolate, but the peanut butter oreo’s just were a bit underhwelming I guess? I also have some things I only like in combination or only when prepared a certain way.

    • Yes my plans to not get any new books always backfires. Already got one new book this week as well.
      They weren’t as good as I hoped, I’ll just stick with the normal oreo’s for now. Those golden oreo’s with chocolate creme sound interesting. I would try those if they sold them here!
      Lola recently posted…Review: Rest in Peach by Susan FurlongMy Profile

    • The sounded interesting indeed, I just hoped they tasted more exciting. I already am reading two of my new books and enjoying both of them so far.

  4. I love regular oreos but not tried peanut butter ones, I am a PBaholic so those would be the death of me…lol. You got some good books for review I like the title of the children’s book. 🙂
    Stormi recently posted…The Week In Review #90My Profile

    • I also love peanut butter, but the peanut butter oreo’s were just a bit underwhelming, they didn’t have a rich peanut butter flavour.
      I just finished reading the MG book and it was a good one. I like the mystery and had fun reading it :).

    • I am thinking maybe the original flavour is just the best, although I would like to try a few other flavours. The golden oreo’s sound interesting, like a reverse oreo.

    • Nope we only have the normal ones and the chocolate covered ones here. And now the peanut butter ones that are limited edition. The double stuff and mint ones sound good. I would try those if they sold them here!

  5. Okay, I got all psyched up for the PB Oreos so I’m kinda bummed they weren’t good, since I know both you and I LOVE peanut butter. I like the mint ones the best, actually. They’re really good. The plain ones are still a go-to cookie for me. Here in the States we get ALL TYPES of weird Oreo flavors. I wish I could just buy one little sleeve to try them instead of buying a package with three sleeves.

    Thanks again for featuring FACE TIME! It’s been a great month having it on sale and I’ve even garnered a new review! Huzzah!

    • I love peanut butter, but these just didn’t have a rich peanut butter flavour. The creme just tasted a bit meh, the normal ones creme tastes better. It’s a shame as I was pretty excited for these.

      I wish I could try some of the weird flavours you have there, just to see how they taste. The mint ones sound good! Here we only have the roll packages like the one shown in the picture and boxes with them packed two cookies per package and then 6 of those or so in one box.

      I wanted to give it another shout out for people who might’ve missed it last week. It’s been fun to see your blog posts about Face Time and I hope a lot of people grabbed their copy. And yay for the new review!

    • I guess I am not missing much then. I still wish I could try the flavours, just to know how they taste.
      I enjoyed Jill Shalvis her Cedar Ridge series, so I am excited for this one!

    • I already started two of the books in this weeks haul, so that’s a good start! I prefer the plain oreo’s so far as well. The peanut butter oreo’s weren’t too impressive. I would like to try some other flavors, just to see what they taste like.

    • Yay! I hope you’ll enjoy both Forever Hers and Face Time!

      We don’t have the double stuffed ones here, but they sound nice. And I would totally try pumpkin spices ones if they sold those here.

  6. Oh yay for a productive work week.

    Hmm, I would definitely try peanut butter Oreos. I like plain ones once in a while and definitely in Cookies N Cream Ice Cream.

    LOL, it is soooo hard to resist new books for review or on sale. I’m doing better, but I got another one this week, too.

    Have a good week, Lola!

    • My mom made homemade oreo ice cream a few times and it’s so good! The peanut butter ones didn’t taste as good as I had hoped, I prefer the plain ones so far.

      I couldn’t resist the MG deal and it’s a fun one so far. The other one was a review copy I was waiting for and am currently reading. And I couldn’t resist requesting the Jill Shalvis book on edelweiss when Anna told me it was there. I already got a new review book this week as well, lol. I’ll have to do better next week.

  7. I have been busy too so I’ve fallen behind on visiting blogs and replying to comments. But there are somethings we have no control over so we have just do our best. All bloggers understand so we shouldn’t worry about it lol. Sweet Little Lies looks really good. Since I live in Northern California it would be fun to read a book set in San Francisco. I hope you enjoy all your new books and have a great week!

    • It’s a shame when that happens. I managed to do a lot of catching up on Sunday, so I am almost fully caught up now again, whew. And I agree all bloggers understand when that happens.
      I am really curious about Sweet Little Lies, I enjoyed this author her previous series, so I am curious if I enjoy this one as well.
