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 good week. I had a bunch of tours running this week, a blog tour and two blitzes and then later in the week another blitz started as well. I sent out the media kit for a tour that’s starting next week and put the sign-up post for a cover reveal and review opportunity live. My Lola’s Blog Tours Christmas giveaway ended and I picked the winners and ordered the books. I am delighted so many people entered! I also got quite some hours of assistant work done.
And this week was Lola’s Reviews 5 year blogoversary! Thanks to Nicole fromFeed Your Fiction Addiction for reminding me. She has this form on her blog you can fill out with your birthday and blogoversary date and then she sends you a tweet on those dates. It’s fun to be reminded of it that way.
Oh and I won two more giveaways this week! Yay! Another Amazon gift card and a book :). The book was by an author I just read a book by this week, so it’s great to have another book by her to read now.
I am currently reading some non-review books again. After the last few months reading so many review copies I am totally going all moodreader this month so far! I only have one review copy that has an upcoming release date (all the others are already past their release date) and one more I am receiving soon. So I am planning to get some non-review books read as well, just reading what I want to for this month. I also removed some books from my for review shelf, there are so many older books on there still from some times I went overboard with the review copies and it’s so tempting to just remove them all and start over on 0. There are some I am still sure I want to read eventually, but also a bunch that I kinda lost interest about and am not as enthusiastic anymore as I once was, which just makes me sad.
I am joining the New Release Challenge again next year. My goal is 31-60 books per year – New Release Pro. I really enjoy this challenge and as I always read a lot of new releases it’s great to keep track of them for this challenge.
What did I read this week?
First Command was a fun prequel novella that made me curious for book 1. It also had a nice twist. I posted my review on Goodreads, but probably won’t post it on my blog. Distant Light was a good read, I really liked the main character. Black Arts, Tarts & Gypsy Carts was just as fun as book 1 in the series.
What did I cook for dinner this week?
- Spiced Pointed Cabbage with cashew nuts
- Spinach Masala Quiche
- Veggies in sweet chili sauce with veggie nuggets and wraps

Ella’s Twisted Senior and The Truth of Letting Go I received from the author. Ghosts and Grudges was only 99c and it sounded really good, so I bought it. I already started reading it and it’s really good so far. A Witch’s Mortal Desire is the book I won, I just read another one of the author’s book this week, so I am curious about this one.
