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 good week overall with a few meh days, but overall it wasn’t too bad of a week. Not much worth mentioning. It was mostly a standard week, I did some work, worked on the currently running tours and a cover reveal took place. And a new review opportunity and a new cover reveal went live on my site. I read two books this week which were both good ones. And I did a bit of gaming too. I did fell behind again on replying to comments and commenting back, but I’ll do my best to try and catch up again today! Please do know that I really appreciate all your comments!
And it seems I got lucky this week as I won two giveaways! I won a 5$ amazon gift card from an author and a print copy of a cozy mystery. I am really happy about both wins. Sorry not much to tell besides that!
Summer Haikus is on sale for only 0.99$ for a limited time. It takes place during the Olympics, so now is a great time to grab this one up. It’s one of the best contemporary romances I’ve read. And it takes place partly in Japan. It’s a great read and I would recommend it to everyone who loves a good romance. I can’t say enough good things about this book. Need more convincing? You can read my review of Summer Haikus here
Picture of the Week
I didn’t take any new pictures to share with you today. But as I was baking cheesecake on Saturday evening it seemed a good idea to repost an older picture. This picture is from my cheesecake recipe post. I really love a good cheesecake. I usually make the neutral flavor, but I’ve once eaten a flavored a cheesecake in a small cheesecake shop that was really good too. What’s your favorite cheesecake flavor or favorite cheesecake recipe?
What did I read this week?
Both were great reads! Cracked to death is the third book in a cozy mystery series about a glass shop and it’s a great series, with every book I grow fonder of this series. Bound by Faerie was a new to me author, the blurb and cover caught my attention and I was lucky enough to get a review request for it. I’ll review it on my blog next week. It’s a fun action packed and fast paced read with a snarky main character. It was a lot fo fun and I am looking forward to see were the authors take the series next!

It was a good week for books! My pre-order for Betrayals arrived! Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors and I love this series so far, so I am very excited to have the next book in the series. And the Indie Author Survival Guide has been on my wishlist for a long time now, so when I saw it was on sale for only 0.99$ I grabbed it immediately. Thanks to my amazon gift card money ;). I really like her fiction books and as I’ve been picking up some non-fiction books more often lately I am really curious about this one.
