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 bit more quiet which was a welcome change. I was still busy with tour work, as three tours started this week and sending out media kits for future tours. And I worked on some marketing assistant work this week. But I also had some time to game a bit and read. And I won a 25$ amazon gift card, which totally made my day and I already bought a book with it and am deciding which other books to buy.
I am hoping to read some more sci-fi romance books, so if anyone has a good recommendation for a sci-fi romance book please let me know! I am looking for sci-fi romances with well done world building/ sci-fi elements and a good romance or interesting characters as well. Preferable no time travel or gruesome scenes.
And I made a new recipe this week, which I haven’t done for a long time. It was a Curry Soup recipe with tofu that I turned into a curry with rice recipe. It needed some tweaking, but we ended up with a yummy dish, I really liked the flavor of this curry. So next time I make it I’ll take pictures so I can do a recipe post.
The Daydreamer Detective by SJ Pajonas is free for a limited time! I really enjoyed this book! If you’re looking for a fun cozy mystery with an unique setting then this might be a book for you. The book is set in japan, there are great characters and side characters and a nice mystery.
Dating for Decades is a book I haven’t read yet, but I bought it this week as it sounded promising and it’s on sale for only 0.99$ for a limited time.
Beyond Reach is the second book in the True Calling series and it’s on sale for 0.99$ for a limited time. The first book in the series is free. I really enjoyed this young adult sci-fi romance series!
I recently read Pirate Bound and I really enjoyed it and am eagerly awaiting the release of book 1. The prequel novella, which is 153 pages long is on sale for 0.99$ for a limited time. The telepathic powers are really worked out and it’s a fun book to read.

Picture of the Week
A few weeks ago I posted about Ten Dutch Products, in the comments Bookworm Brandee mentions she didn’t see any chips I shared. The reason for that is that I personally am not a big chips eater, although I do buy some now and then. And I have no clue which chips flavors are typical for here or if they sell these everywhere, so no chips made it into that post.
So there are a few chips flavors that I like, so I decided to make a picture of my favorite chips flavour today. This is a fun shaped paprika flavored chips, I really like the taste of these and buy them now and then. What’s your favorite chips flavor or brand?

An original eNovella set in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine universe!
On the space station Deep Space 9, Quark’s Public House, Café, Gaming Emporium, Holosuite Arcade, and Ferengi Embassy can’t legitimately be called an embassy until the Grand Nagus—namely, Quark’s brother Rom—dedicates it as such. Not that Quark really cares about Ferengi protocol, but a well-publicized dedication ceremony will naturally draw people to the bar. Everybody loves a good open house—free appetizers, half-price drinks, door prizes, etc.—all of which Quark can write off as Embassy expenses. It’s a win-win situation, with him on both sides of the win. There’s even a plan to display the original scroll of the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition—which no one has seen for decades given that it’s been held in protective storage—and charge patrons by the minute to look at it up close. Nothing, of course, could possibly go wrong with this big plan. Absolutely nothing at all…
My boyfriend and I recently watched Star Trek Deep Space 9, so I was really excited when I saw this e-novella on netgalley and requested it and got accepted, yay!

So when her sister Sara wants her to go camping out in the mountains of Georgia with the girls, she packs her bags for some rest and relaxation.

Now the vacation that Christine so desperately needed is ruined, but that’s the least of her worries. She has to use her wits and skills to save them all. Because she soon finds out that werewolves are very real. And they’ll stop at nothing to get their claws into her sister.

IT guru Cassie Noble can depend on networks and servers. It’s the people in her life that always let her down. With her fortieth birthday looming, she’d love to find a way to trust and commit to someone.
Eager to work out her problems methodically, Cassie reaches out to her support group. Electrician Keith manages to infiltrate their all-female ranks, infuriating her with his flippant jokes and his all-too laid back attitude. The other women all find him hilarious and she can’t see why. She takes this seriously and he’s doing anything but.
When Cassie needs Keith’s help on a project at her day job, she’s dreading having to work closely with him, however much his hazel eyes make her stop dead in her tracks. As days turn to weeks, he starts to break down her hard exterior. She’s seeing new possibilities. She’s seeing the future…a life that is joyful and bright. A life that includes Keith.
But when a letter from her mother drags her back to the world where Cassie has no control, she shuts down. Can her support group yank her back from that place where hope is lost? And can the man who once drove her crazy be the one who finally doesn’t let her down?

One of the richest men in the world, left forty-nine percent of his company to a sister my client never knew he had. A woman named Mia Saunders.

Stetsons, soul-searching, and sisterly duty all come into a sharp tangle with twists and turns I never saw coming.

Dark Disciple (Star Wars canon)

Based on unproduced scripts from the blockbuster TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars!
The only way to bring down the dark side’s most dangerous warrior may be for Jedi and Sith to join forces.
In the war for control of the galaxy between the armies of the dark side and the Republic, former Jedi Master turned ruthless Sith Lord Count Dooku has grown ever more brutal in his tactics. Despite the powers of the Jedi and the military prowess of their clone army, the sheer number of fatalities is taking a terrible toll. And when Dooku orders the massacre of a flotilla of helpless refugees, the Jedi Council feels it has no choice but to take drastic action: targeting the man responsible for so many war atrocities, Count Dooku himself.
But the ever-elusive Dooku is dangerous prey for even the most skilled hunter. So the Council makes the bold decision to bring both sides of the Force’s power to bear—pairing brash Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos with infamous one-time Sith acolyte Asajj Ventress. Though Jedi distrust for the cunning killer who once served at Dooku’s side still runs deep, Ventress’s hatred for her former master runs deeper. She’s more than willing to lend her copious talents as a bounty hunter—and assassin—to Vos’s quest.
Together, Ventress and Vos are the best hope for eliminating Dooku—as long as the emerging feelings between them don’t compromise their mission. But Ventress is determined to have her retribution and at last let go of her dark Sith past. Balancing the complicated emotions she feels for Vos with the fury of her warrior’s spirit, she resolves to claim victory on all fronts—a vow that will be mercilessly tested by her deadly enemy . . . and her own doubt.
