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?
For this week’s Sunday Post I want to ask you all a question. As it’s the last day of 2017 I am excited to hear which books you enjoyed the most this year and my question for you: If you could recommend me one book you read in 2017, which one would it be and why? And why do you think I might enjoy that book?
Okay now back to how this week was. I hope you all had a great Christmas. We spent Christmas day (or actually first Christmas day for us) with my boyfriend’s parents. It was fun, there was good food and we got some presents. I did have a headache, which put a bit of a damper on my mood sadly. The rest of the week was pretty decent. It was a bit more relaxed than normal and while I still had enough work to keep part of my day filled with work, I also made some more time to read, play a game and watch a movie.
I did was a bit tired the latter part of the week as I hadn’t been sleeping too well, they are repairing the apartment across the hall from us and there’s a lot of noise that wakes me up a few times each morning.
I ended up adding another 5 star read to my best books of 2017 post a few days before it went live as I read an amazing contemporary romance book this week that had the most awesome slow burn friends to lover romance. I think this is only the third or so gay romance I read and contemporary romances rarely get a 5 star from me (the last one was Summer Haikus more than about 2 years ago I think), so I was really happy this book was so good. And we watched How to Train Your Dragon and the sequel, which were fun, although I liked the first movie better than the second. And there’s this cooking game I’ve been playing lately which is a lot of fun.
What did I read this week?
I loved Leo Loves Aries, it was an amazing slow burn friends to lovers romance with lots of banter and some great chemistry between the two characters. The Vectum was okay, mostly it was just very short so it was hard to fully get into the story. But I am curious about part 2.
What did I cook for dinner this week?
- Spinach Pasta Sauce
- Potatoes and Pumpkin Mash with parsley, walnuts and sausage

The Vectum I got for review from the author and already read. Accidental Witch is a new release by Lydia Sherrer and was only 99cents so I bought it. Scorpio Hates Virgo I got through netgalley for review. I was so excited to see it on Netgalley after I just finished and loved book one. I can’t wait to read this one and on the other hand am afriad it’s not as good as book 1. The Daydreamer Detective Returns a Favor I got for review and will probably be my next book. I always am excited when I receive a new book from Pajonas and I am really looking forward to reading this one. Cookie Dough, Snow & Wands Aglow is a series I am following and it released for 99cents, so I bought a copy as soon as I saw it released.
