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?
Another busy week. Not much to tell. The weather has been warm this week, a bit too warm for my taste. I’ve been working on future tours, assistant work and current tours. Two new review opportunities and a cover reveal sign-up post went live this week. I had three tours run and a cover reveal this week. And I sent out a bunch of media kits for the 5 or so tours starting next week.
On Wednesday we visited my sister and went out for dinner with her and her boyfriend. We ate at a pizzeria and had a lot of fun chatting about their last vacation, books, games and other topics. The pizza’s were delicious and the dessert was really good too. I ate a vegetarian calzone pizza and as dessert a lemon filled with lemon ice cream.
Last weekend we watched the Maze Runner movie. I hadn’t read the book, as I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it, but I thought the movie was well done. It was pretty action packed, although it did annoy me how at the start no one would answer Thomas’s questions. But the pace was well done and if you’re looking for an action packed dystopia movie it’s worth a watch in my opinion.
I am doing my best to get out of my weird reading mood. I started two reading two books by two of my favorite authors this week Missing by Kelley Armstrong and Keeping Kyler by Siobhan Davis. So far it has improved my reading mood a bit already as both are good books. Next up on my ipad is Witch Summer by HY Hanna. Followed by Arise by Emma L Adams and Paper Cranes by Jordan Ford, which are all 3 books I really want to read.
I am keeping my blog schedule a bit light for now as else I can’t keep up with the comments and I don’t read as much. I am skipping the My To Be Read list meme next month as I need some space to get through the review copies I have and any time left will be spent on whatever I feel like reading then. I hope to join again in July.
Picture of the Week
Sorry no picture this week 🙁
What did I read this week?
I finished two books this week, which was pretty good. Both were 3 stars, but on the high end of the rating as I enjoyed both of them. Crazy was a lot of fun to read and I am looking forward to read more by the author. Planet Neverland was a great Peter Pan retelling, I had some trouble getting int he story at first as the characters annoyed me, but that improved as I continued and there was some nice character development and depth later on.
