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. Lots of work, some milder weather and I finished a really good book! I’ve been busy with tour work, 3 new sign-ups posts went live this week: two book blitzes and a cover reveal. Two cover reveals took place this week and I had 5 or so tours running as well. Some other tours wrapped up after Monday. I am nicely on schedule with my assistant work as I did a nice amount of work for that as well this week.
When it comes to work I found a pretty good rhythm/ schedule for my work were I put about 3 to 4 sign-up posts live each week. That does mean some authors have to wait a while before I get to their sign-up posts, but that amount of work is manageable for me and I don’t overwhelm my tour hosts with e-mails.
I had have a nasty headache Wednesday evening again and took part of the evening off from work and we watched a bit of a movie instead. We had some colder and stormy weather this week, but it seems it getting warmer again now. I also had my computer troubles starting up again after weeks of no crashes happening I got a bunch of crashes again this week.
After the reading slump from last month, I am now trying to find a new balance in my reading of review copies and non-review copies. At the moment I am trying a 50/50 type of balance. First I read a review book, then a book I really want to read, then a review book etc. We’ll see how it goes. This week went well so far. I started a new series The Tainted Accords series by Kelly St Clare and so far it’s really good. I read book 1 within a few days, then read a review book and after that started book 2 and I am already halfway through that one.
Last weekend we watched the movie Jupiter Ascending, it’s a great sci-fi movie! The graphics looked great and the story was a lot of fun as well. Do you have any recommendations for good sci-fi movies?
I am joining Coyer
I am joining the Coyer reading challenge this summer! Coyer is a reading challenge hosted by Michelle from Because Reading is Better Than Real Life, Berls from Fantasy is More Fun and Stormi from Books, Movies, Reviews Oh My!. The summer Coyer is always more relaxed than winter, basically you can read every format book no matter how you got it. I always have a lot of fun with this reading challenge, so if you were thinking of joining, I would definitely recommend it.
Picture of the Week
Sorry no picture this week 🙁
What did I read this week?
Fantasy of Frost was so good! I was really impressed by this book and I just wanted to keep reading. I forced myself to read a review copy in between and read paper Cranes. It’s a beautiful fairytale retelling with a very well done modern fairytale feel, but at the same time I felt like it wasn’t quite the book for me.

Only one new book that i bought this week, I also got a bunch of freebies though. After reading my first book by this author recently I’ve been wanting to read more of her books, so when I saw this one was discounted I had to buy a copy. And it’s a crocodile shifter, how cool is that?
