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 think I am finally getting used to the new routine this week, it only took me 3 weeks, lol. Also last sunday I was talking to another blogger about here in the Netherlands most houses don’t have AC, and it doesn’t gets too warm here usually. Ofcourse right after mentioning that we got a really warm week here, at the warmest moment it was 27 degrees Celsius/ 80 degrees Fahrenheit inside our house. And even warmer outside probably. And we have the humid heat, so yes it was very warm this week. Which made it more difficult to concentrate most days.
But besides that it was an okay week, I got two new review opportunities live on Lola’s Blog Tours. I got some reading done and even spent a little bit of time colouring. And I got a review copy of a book I am really excited for, which totally made my day. And I fell behind on comments again, I blame the new routine. Let’s hope it will get better next week and I can actually keep up with comments now that I am used to the new routine!
I had some trouble with one of my e-mails, with how I suddenly couldn’t sent e-mails anymore and I was trying to fix for two weeks now and I got really annoyed as my roundabout way didn’t work either and I spent a lot of time trying to fix it and then suddenly this week it fixed itself. And then the next day it didn’t work anymore, grr it’s really frustrating. And my work around method doesn’t work either. I hate e-mail problems.
Picture of the Week
A few weeks ago I shared one of the chips flavours I ate now and then. I am not a big chips eater, but this is another flavour I eat now and then. Tortilla chips, this is the plain version as I like those best. Do you like tortilla chips and how do you eat them? Do you have a favorite dip to eat them with?
What did I read this week?
I actually finished four books again this week. I finished the beta read I was doing for a YA contemporary romance book, not listed above as it doesn’t have a cover or is on goodreads yet. I finished Amanda Lester and the Red Spider Rumpus (Amanda Lester, Detective #5) by Paula Berinstein, which doesn’t have a cover yet, so also isn’t listed above. It was a nice book in this series, although not my favorite. Guess I wasn’t fully in the mood for this one and was a bit in the beta read mindset as I was beta reading a book for my evening read, but it still had enough things I did enjoy as well.
And I read my third non-fiction book of the year How to Write a Sizzling Synopsis, I should’ve made that a goal, lol. It was a short and very informative read with lots of practical tips. And I finished the True Calling short story collecting which was a fun addition to the series. So overall it was a good reading week.

Gah I can’t explain how excited I am to have gotten a review copy of Pirate Nemesis! I reviewed the prequel Pirate Bound on my blog this week and really enjoyed it and I have been looking forward to read book 1. And then I noticed on facebook the author was looking for arc readers, so I signed-up and hoped I wasn’t too late. And then a few days later I opened my inbox and noticed I got a review copy of Pirate nemesis. So guess what I am reading next?
