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?
Overall this was a pretty good week. I did work and even made time to write some blog posts, I also got some reading and gaming done. It was still warm, but a tiny bit less warm than last week.
There was one new cover reveal that went live this week on Lola’s Blog Tours and some media kits that went out and a cover reveal that took place. And I got some blogging done this week! I wrote a Lola’s Advice post a Lola’s Kitchen post and three Lola’s Ramblings post and am now back on my being ahead schedule. So I am happy with my progress. I still fell behind on replying to comments, but I think I got more done this week than in previous week. I hope to catch up today on the rest.
My sister and her boyfriend visited on Monday. It was fun, we ate the oreo creamcheese balls I made and drank tea. And she bought me the most adorable penguin for my birthday. And post it’s shaped like animals (they are adorable) and a cute penguin stamp. See pictures below.
Picture of the Week
Here are some of the presents I got for my birthday this year. The chocolate bar, cookies mix and pencils I got from my mom. The penguin, animal post-its and stamp I got form my sister. The penguin is now adorning my desk.
And I tried out a new recipe this week for Oreo Creamcheese Balls with Chocolate, they were really good. I already have the recipe post scheduled, although I didn’t make process pictures, just the end result.
What did I read this week?
September was a bit meh with some good parts and also some things I didn’t enjoy like some drama causing plot twists. The Prince and the Cyborg started off as just okay, but it got better and better as it progressed and I ended up enjoying it. I almost am finished with my current read Faerie Realm, which is really good. And I made a start on A Mortal Song, which is off to a great start.

The Chase and Mandrake Company are both sci-fi romance books/ box sets that I bought to 0.99$. Mandrake Company was on my wishlist for a bit and I decided to buy it as I am in a sci-fi romance mood again. And The Chase was the first 3 episodes discounted and it sounded interesting, so I got it. I got It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To for review from netgalley, I read the first book already and I am curious to see where the series goes next and I like the Halloween theme of the cover. Bloodless I got for review from the author, I really enjoyed the first book and am looking forward to reading this one. The first book The Immortality Cure is discounted to 0.99$ for a limited time.
