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 was busy with work and some non-work things, I made one more small tweak to my design and my reading mood was a bit better this week.
I sent out the media kits for the cover reveal and release day book blitz next week, put a new sign-up post live and did some hours of assistant work.
On my blog I changed the color behind my header this week, now it’s blue as well. I kept thinking of a way to incorporate a bit more of the blue into the design and suddenly came up with this. I am happy with how it looks. It’s strange how quick I am already used to the new alpaca logo, I think that’s a good sign. Although I still get happy every time I see it.
Spring arrived with a burst here this week. Like suddenly it’s warm and all the plants and trees are green and flowers are popping up everywhere. It’s like a massive difference in only one week, usually it goes more slowly the change. I kinda like seeing all the plants and flowers, but it was a bit too warm for my taste this week. I always get a bit sleepy/ tired when we get the first days of warmth.
We visited my sister this week and went out for dinner. It was fun chatting and catching up with her and her boyfriend. And the pizza’s we had for dinner were delicious.
My reading mood seemed to have improved a bit this week as I felt enthusiastic and looking forward to books again and even signed-up for some new ARC’s. I already got accepted for the ARC I requested on Netgalley and am still waiting to hear if I get the other ARC I signed-up for this week. And there are some ARC’s that I am on the ARC list for that should be coming me way soon that I am really excited about :).
What did I read this week?
Broken Wide was a solid ending to the series, but due to my weird reading mood I didn’t enjoy it as much as I had hoped. Tempted by Demons was a fun paranormal romance read. I enjoyed reading this one, although some parts felt a bit rushed, but overall it was a very fun story and it fit what I was in the mood for.
What did I cook for dinner this week?
- Bread with baked red bell pepper and onions and veggie burger
- Lentils stew
- Potato Mash with tomato sauce

I am really enjoying one of my current reads, Overload Flux, so I decide to buy the rest of the books in this series that I didn’t own yet. So I bought Jumper’s Hope Zero Flux (which follows the same main characters as book 1!) and Last Ship Off Polaris G. Tracing Shadows and Europa, were both 99 cents books I bought when they were discounted and both have been on my wishlist for some time now. Ruthless Magic I got for review through Netgalley and I am really curious about this, the premise is basically Harry Potter meets The Hunger Games.
