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 busy week. I mentioned we had a change in routine last week and luckily this week went a lot smoother already. The clock went an hour back last weekend here, which messed up my sleep a little bit. On Tuesday I went out for lunch with my mom. We had fun, talked a lot and ate some amazing bagels.
It was a good and busy week for work. I had a bookstagram blitz run this week, a cover reveal and the last bit of a blog tour. I put two new sign-up posts live for a cover reveal and a blog tour and sent out two media kits for events next week. I finished up my assistant work for October and already made a good start with November’s work.
Not much happened besides that. I tried out a new recipe that was a bit of a flop. I tweaked my recipe for overnight oats a bit and that’s great now. I also had a headache one day sadly. I did manage to finish 3 books this week and got a bunch of new books.
- Amount of books read: 7 (same amount as September)
- Favorite book: Fantasy of Freedom
- Most read genre: Contemporary Romance (3 books)
- Most read age category: Adult (3 books)
- Authors I read most books from: none (only read 1 book by each author)
- New to me authors: 1 (Lena Mae Hill) and some more from the Pets in Space anthology
A few more stats. This month I read 5 self published books and 2 from publishers (1 from HarperCollins and 1 from Berkley). I read 5 different genres this month, 3 Contemporary Romance books, 1 Science Fiction Romance, 1 Paranormal Romance, 1 Fantasy and 1 cozy mystery. All 7 of the book were full length. I had five 4 star reads and two 3 star reads. 4 of the books I read were books I received for review, 3 were books that I bought.
I read 1 paperback this month and the other 6 were ebooks that I read on my ipad. I read 5 books that took place in the US this month, 1 with multipel locations and 1 in a fantasy world.
I didn’t read any standalones this month, I read 2 series starters and 1 series ender (Fantasy of Freedom). I read 3 books were romance was a side plot and 4 books with romance as the main focus.
What did I read this week?
Christmas at Cade Ranch was a great read! It had a bit of Christmas cheer, great characters and a nice romance. Shift of Shadow and Soul was a good fantasy book and fit exactly what I was in the mood for. Another Bites the Crust was so much fun! It’s one of my favorite cozy mystery series and this was another great book in the series. There was a nice twist at the end and I guessed the murderer wrong.
What did I cook for dinner this week?
- Sunday: Noodle Soup with vegetables
- Monday: Pumpkin stew with veggie sausages
- Tuesday: Pumpkin stew with veggie sausages
- Wednesday: Sweet Tofu Curry
- Thursday: Sweet Tofu Curry
- Friday: soup with bread

Etched in Tears and Falling for a Cowboy I got for Netgalley and both are series I already started. The other three books I bought. The Quiche and the Death I had pre-ordered in paperback. Seashells, Spells and Caramels and Black Arts, Tarts and Gypsy Carts were both 99c on Halloween and I’ve been curious about this series since I first heard of it, so I grabbed both books. I also got Heart of Time when it was 99c. I got Blood Oath for review from the author, cna’t wait to read this new series!
