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 and productive week! I sent out a media kit for next week, I had two blitzes run this week and a blog tour, that ended later this week and a new blog that started and will run till the end of the month. I also got a lot of assistant work done.

On Sunday and Monday it was very cold weather here and we even had snow. It looked really beautiful until it turned to mush and then two days later everything was gone again. We also set-up our Christmas tree last weekend. We visited a Christmas market this week, which was fun, except for the rain and cold. And we went out for dinner with my mom, her husband and my sister and her boyfriend yesterday.

I continued my moodreading this week and finished some good books. On Goodreads you can see my year in books.

What did I read this week?

The Truth of Letting GoGhosts and Grudges

The truth of Letting Go was really good, it had a road trip and two cousins who couldn’t be more different. There also was a bit of romance and I had fun reading this book. Ghosts and Grudges was full of action and Japanese mythology.

What did I cook for dinner this week?

This week I blogged about:

Review: Blood Oath by Kelly St Clare and Raye Wagner
Review: How to talk to Ghosts by Erin Hayes

What to expect next week on the blog:

– Review: Etched in Tears by Cheryl Hollon
– Review: The Truth of Letting Go by Amy Sparling

Book Haul:

Biscuits and Slashed BrownsDangerous Moves

Both of these I got for review through netgalley. Biscuits and Slashed Browns is the next book in one of my favorite cozy mystery series. And dangerous Moves is the start of a new romantic suspense series by Karen Rock. I really liked her contemporary romance books and the one romantic suspense she wrote so far, so I am excited about diving into this story.

  1. Yay for a productive week. We got our first big snow, too, and its still around several days later since we stayed cold. Got my exercise shoveling the drive and walks. 😉

    How fun that you got to go out to eat with your family, visit a Christmas market, and get your tree up. We are all decorated for Christmas and got our shopping done, too.

    Oh, neat! I’ll have to check out Karen Rock’s new romantic suspense.

    Have a good week, Lola!

    • Most of our snow is gone now, but it’s still cold.

      It was a fun and busy week :).

      I am really curious about Karen Rock’s new romantic suspense, it sounds so good. And I hope I can read it soon.

  2. Glad you had a productive week. I am looking forward to this week coming up besides the chaos it’s my favorite time of year. It snowed, got mushy and disappeared here too. We still have a little all over the grass but the roads are clear.

    You did good on your reading stats this year. I need to share mine to but I wanted to wait until the end of the year because I plan to read a few chapter books in the next few days to help kick this dreaded never ending slump I am in. 🙂

    I hope you have a great week, Lola! Happy Reading! ox

    • Almost all of the snow here is gone, but we also had some days after it just snowed that it was still on the grass, but the roads were clear.

      I’ll probably finish a few more books as well this year, but thought it was fun to share the Goodreads thing now already. I am surprised at how much I read this year, I hand’t expected that.

  3. Yes – we haven’t had snow, but it has been cold. I always HATE the mushy part of snow, so it’s a good thing it’s gone. Are you expecting a white Christmas? The Christmas market sounds lovely, though being cold isn’t much fun. Hope you have a great week – many thanks for all your hard work to make the launch for Dying for Space smooth and I hope the coming week is a fabulous one with much more mood reading:)

    • When it just falls it’s so pretty, but then when it turns to mush I hate it. So good it’s gone instead of the mush then. I don’t think we’re getting a white Christmas as this week it was much warmer again, but who knows?

      The Christmas market was fun :). And I am glad the tour for Dying for Space is going well.

  4. Glad you had a good week! And snow too- although yeah it sometimes is nice when it goes away quickly so not everything gets slippery. 🙂 The Christmas market sounds fun too, would love to wander through something like that.

    Mood reading is my favorite way to read these days, seems like. Hope your books continue to be good.

    Biscuits and Slashed Browns looks fun!

    • I like snow, but I am also happy if it doens’t stay around too long as it does cause some problems. We didn’t buy much, but I just love strolling past all the stalls and seeing what they sold.

      I want to find a good balance with not accepting too many review books and hopefully getting them early in advance if possible so I can moodread more. It really makes me happy when I can mood read.

      I really like that series, so I hope to start Biscuits and Slashed Browns after I finish my current read.

    • I think you’ll like the Japanese mythology aspect of it. It has lots of mythology, although it did went a bit overboard in the middle in my opinion. But overall it was a solid read.
