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?
Happy Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a lovely day!
This week was a busy and eventful week with preparations for Christmas, work and finishing up some assistant work. Two new tours went live on Lola’s Blog Tours this week. I had enough work to keep me busy this week among the other things that happened this week.
On Wednesday we visited a nearby city and did most of our Christmas shopping. There also was this small Christmas market, which was fun to see. After that we stopped by my sister’s for dinner. We gave my sister her Christmas present which she put under their tree, but she did unpack the toy and candies we got for her cat Miku. We got two Lush (they sell soaps and such) presents from her to take home and put them under our tree here. The presents smell delicious, lol. It was a busy, but fun day.
And I won a giveaway by the awesome Veronica Scott! I won one of her books in e-format and a mug with two of the pets from her short story in Pets in Space. I will make a picture once it arrives here :). I also got some Christmas money from my grandma and I already bought a few games and books with it.
Picture of the Week
I found this Christmas Cookie while grocery shopping this week and it looked so good, so I had to buy some. They tasted very good! They were chocolate cookies with M&M’s in Christmas colors in it.
What did I read this week?
Death of a Toy Soldier was such a fun read and it even took place around Christmas time, which was fun. I am already looking forward to book 2! The Royal Trade was a fun and short read.
