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 overall. I had an errand to run, did a bunch of work and put two new sign-up posts live. A new book blitz and a new review opportunity sign-up post went live on Lola’s Blog Tours. I made a good start with this month’s assistant work as well.
My reading mood seemed to be improving again this week, which I am happy about. I finished another 5 star read this week. I also started a new puzzle this week and made some time to actually puzzle a bit almost every evening. On Saturday we went out for lunch for my grandma’s birthday.
And as April has ended, it’s time to have a look at my stats.

I got Deadly Games for review through Netgalley, book 1 in this series was really good, so I am looking forward to starting this one. Stroke the Flame I bought on release day as I like the sound of this one. Shifter Mate Magic I got for review and it’s by the same author as the sci-fi series I am currently reading on my Kobo. I am really excited to start this one. Reflections of You I bought on release day as I like the premise of this one.
