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 pretty good week. So far 2017 seems to be off to a good start. I got a bunch of work done; two new tours started this week, I got two sign-ups posts live on my site, send out an e-mails to all my tour hosts, send out an author newsletters as well and did some author assistant work. I also made some time for reading, tried out two new recipes and received a prize from a giveaway I won.
I started off the reading year very good as my first read was a 5 star read! Eep I am so happy! Last week I read Love, Lies and Hocus Pocus: beginning and I read book 2 this week Love, Lies and Hocus Pocus: Revelations and it was so good! I am totally hooked on this series and can’t wait till book 3 and 4 releases. I also got a novella in the series read this week.
I tried out two new recipes this week, I made naans with a new recipe and they turned out so well. They had a very nice and fluffy texture and they tasted great. I also made a pumpkin curry, that was really good. The kitchen smelled so good while I was making these and it was a very good dinner. I will do recipes posts for both of them eventually.
I decided to try and keep a spreadsheet for all the books I read this year. After reading Kristen her post about her 2016 bookish stats, I got inspired to keep track of what I read, which genre etc. We’ll see if I can keep it up, the most difficult thing will be to make it part of my routine when finishing a book. So far I’ve remembered to list each book I read.
Picture of the Week
I won a giveaway last month and the package arrived this week. I had so much fun unpacking it and finding out what the author had sent me. this is a close up of the mug I got. It has two pets on it that featured in veronica Scott her story in pets in Space. I already drank tea out of it as well. It’s such a great mug and I was happily surprised by the other things the author sent me as ell.
What did I read this week?
Love, Lies and Hocus Pocus: Revelations was my fist read of the year and it was a 5 star! I also finished my beta read of Saven Deliverance, I liked how the series ended, although it’s not the best book in the series. And I read the novella Love, Lies and Hocus Pocus: A Study in Mischief which was a fun addition to the series.

Freebies I grabbed:
Sorry I skipped the freebies this week as I got a lot of freebies this week and didn’t feel like listing them all. But you can stop by my facebook post here where I list freebies and cheap books during the week.
And if I can recommend one book that is cheap, A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe is only 0.99$ for a limited time. It’s available on all vendor sites Goodreads|Amazon|Kobo|B&N. I read this one last year and really enjoyed it, it’s a YA fantasy set in Japan.
