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 decent week. Again I was pretty tired this week, I wonder if I am getting sick, but besides the tiredness I feel fine. I also had a nasty headache yesterday, which put a damper on my productivity. But besides that it was an okay week.
While I felt a bit off this week because of the tiredness I still got some work done. There was a bookstagram blitz I organized that started this week and a cover reveal I organized that took place. I wrote some social media posts for an author and send that out. I also send out the media kit for a tour that’s starting next week. I finished with most of the assistant work for this month. I launched the combination packages on Lola’s Blog Tours this week and it will be interesting to see if people will make use of them. And I am going to do a trial month for another author next month for assistant work for social media posts, which I am excited about and I hope it goes well.
I baked some chocolate cookies last weekend and have another cookie recipe planned for this one if I feel up for making it. It also was a pretty good reading week and after reading a bunch of review books in a row on my ipad I am reading a book I bought now and then back to the review copies.
What did I read this week?
I finished a lot of books this week. One of them I finished early this week and The Ridge was a very short one and Wriggle & Sparkle I’ve been reading as my evening book for weeks now. I am doing pretty well with one of my reading goals for this year this week, with finishing three reverse harem books and a MM romance. The Lost Savior and Don’t Rush Me were both great starts to the series. The Lost Savior is a sci-fi romance with aliens and I am excited to see where this series goes next. I really liked Beckett and Maddox, but the other boys are interesting as well, even tough they annoyed me at times. Don’t Rush Me was an urban fantasy read and has a slow burn romance, with almost no romance yet in the first book. But a great cast of side character and I am eager to see where things go next. The Ridge is part of a serial and the books are pretty short, but there are some things I am curious about even tough I don’t fully feel the romance yet and there are some well done descriptions in this book. Wriggle & Sparkle was a fun paranormal romance featuring a kraken and a unicorn, the romance was really well done and those two made for such a cute couple, but I found the plot of each story a bit lacking as with the shorter length of each individual story it was hard to really get caught up in the plot before it was solved already.

Upstaged is the third book in a series I am reading and I bought it as soon as it released. House of Glass sounded like an interesting sci-fi RH read, so I bought a copy. The Ridge I got for review and already finished reading. Priestess Awakened sounded interesting and I bought a copy and I am currently reading this one. The Little Library I got from netgalley. It sounded like a fun MM romance and the blurb sounded good.
