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 full week with lots of things going on. It also was quite the productive week. I finished up the assistant work of this month for all 6 of the authors I work for, made a start on some assistant work for next month already and I put two new review opportunities live.
Daylight Saving time started last weekend here, so that messed things up a bit. It took me almost the whole week to feel used to the new time again.
We had this weird rotten smell in the house for a few days and I finally figured out what was the cause. It seems I over-watered one of my plants and it started rotting, yeah not nice. And this is a plant I kept alive for about 4-6 year or so, so I don’t even know how this happened. We’re now waiting till the soil is dry before determining whether it survived or not. Normally I am pretty good at keeping our plants alive, but I mess up now and then and either over-water or give too little water to a plant.
I also landed in a bit of a weird reading mood again. I read a great book last weekend, but then a 3 star book (Apple Strudel Alibi) in a series I really enjoy so far and my other current read (Beneath the Mists) wasn’t as good as I hoped, despite having a great premise and good world building. I felt like I wasn’t reading the books that fit my mood and I think it’s time for some mood reading. So after I finished Apple Strudel Alibi I picked a bunch of books that I really wanted to read and then picked one of those. I went with Shoot the Messenger and so far it’s really good and exactly the type of read I was in the mood for.

What did I read this week?
The Secret Heir was a great sequel and even better than the first book. I really liked seeing how the relationships progressed and learning more about the world. Apple Strudel Alibi switched things up with a different setting, but sadly I didn’t enjoy it as much as the previous books in the series. I missed some of the familiar characters and the setting and the murder mystery didn’t pull me in as much as I would’ve liked.
