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 week was a bit quieter than last week, but I did got a lot done. I did a lot of assistant work and put two sign-up posts live for cover reveals that will take place in August. This was the last week of a blog tour I organized and on Friday a new book blitz started. I managed to finish 3 books this week and di a bit of gaming as well. We’re slowly finding a new schedule here that works for us and my boyfriend is getting used to his new job.
And I’ve been trying something new on Facebook, I am trying to share more things on my Lola’s Reviews page. And instead of only one weekly posts were I share all the free and discounted books I come across, I also try making a separate posts about it every time I find a new free/ cheap or discounted book or giveaway. So I am hoping more people hear about things this way and my page is a bit more active. So far my total views seems to have gone a bit up, but it’s still very low. So not sure if it’s really making a difference, but I’ll keep doing this for a while and see what happens.
Picture of the Week
I bought these licorice last time when grocery shopping. They taste really good. And I like this branding, with the witches on the bag.
What did I read this week?
Mission to Mahjundar was a bit disappointing, I was hoping for a great sci-fi romance, but it read more like a fantasy romance. It was very story focused and I had a hard time connecting to the characters. Marked By Fate Origins was a great read, two of the 15 authors were ones I already knew and the other 13 were new to me authors. And most of those authors I would be willing to read more of. I actually already started reading a book by Melle Andre as I really liked her story in the anthology and realized I had gotten the first book in her series when it was free a while ago. How to Talk to Ghosts was a great ending to the series and I really enjoyed Lita’s story!

- Friday: Tomato soup with french bread
