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 nice week! Work was a bit quieter than the past few weeks, but there was still more than enough work to keep me busy. I put two new sign-up posts live this week for two book blitzes, I sent out four media kits for events starting next week and I did some hours of assistant work. I had a blog tour, book blitz and a cover reveal run this week.
I made some time for gaming and spent about half an hour to an hour each evening playing a game, which was fun. It was very warm this week which I wasn’t happy with, luckily since Thursday it cooled down a bit when we had a bit of a storm and I think it will stay a bit more moderate for now.
And I hit the 70% on netgalley this week. I fell back to 69% after requesting two books, but in my defense they were two books I was really curious about. It was nice to see I hit that 70% for the first time! Even though it was only for a little while.
I also had a good reading week, I finished a great book and my two current books are both really good to. I am still in my sci-fi book mood for now it seems. I wrote a review and recipe post for the blog.
Picture of the Week
This was dinner yesterday evening! It’s mashed potatoes with onion and carrots, with some “parneermeel”(breadcrumbs I think comes closest?) on top. And I finally wrote my recipe post for it as well and schedule it for next month :).
What did I read this week?
I only finished one book this week, but hey it was a really good one :). I decided to try Kelly St Clare’s other series as I really enjoyed the first two books in her fantasy series. The Retreat was a great YA dystopian read!

I was dogin pretty well these last few weeks and I think this si the largest haul of new books I’ve had in a while. these were all three books I had on my to-read list already. espresso and Evil just released and I bought it for $0.9 as I enjoyed the series so far. Death Overdue and Murder on the Toy Town Express were both books published by Crooked Lane and were already on my to-read list, so when I saw them pop up on netgalley I had to request them and luckily got approved for both yay! The first Vintage Toy Shop series was one of the best cozies I read last year, so I am really excited to have my hands on the sequel!
