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 week that was a bit meh, but some good things happened as well. I had another headache this week, there was some trouble with my e-mail (which luckily got fixed quickly when I finally managed to get in contact with a support team member) and I had to stand up early one day. But I read some great books and have been in a great reading mood lately. And I finished a coloring book page from the Amanda Lester coloring book I got a while ago, scroll down to see the picture! I also baked some cookies again with flax seed egg.
It was a decent week for work. I put a new sign-up posts live for a blitz end September, I had a tour and two cover reveals run this week and did some assistant work as well. I also managed to finish up my bookstagram e-mail and send it out to my author newsletter.
On Monday some people from a second hand store came to pick up our old table and chairs. For a while we kept it in the hopes of being able to give or sell it to someone who could use it, but as we didn’t knew anyone who wanted it, we decided to donate it now to a second hand store. It did mean we had to stand up early, when they came to pick up the table. So after that I finished most of the work for the day and then took a nap, which helped a lot.
Picture of the Week
I finished coloring a page from the Amanda Lester coloring book I got. This page features Nigel, who is a guidance dog for side character Ivy in the books. I tried a new technique for this one using fine liner pencils for the borders and other type of pencils for the rest. I think it turned out pretty nicely, although some of the greens are a bit too close in color.
What did I read this week?
Second Chance Cowboy was a fun read and I’ll review it next week. Touching Infinity was a tad dark at times, but I was really involved in the story and the characters. It was a great read and I am curious about book 2. The Snare was really good. I am hoked on this series and bought book 3 hen I finished book 2, so I can start that soon.

The Irish getaway I got for review from the author and am currently reading that. I got a lot of books from netgalley this week, Christmas at cade Ranch, Dial Meow for Murder and Atlantis I all got from netgalley. Christmas at Cade Ranch and Dial Meow for Murder are books by authors and series I already started and was so happy to see them on Netgalley. I liked the sound of Atlantis as I enjoy a good mermaid story and decide to request it. Holiday Wishes i got through Edelweiss and is part of a series I am reading. The Catch I bought as I am really enjoying this series and want to know what happens next!
