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 okay week. I was pretty productive, but also had some days where I felt a bit off and another headache, although this one lasted less than a day luckily not almost two days like the one last week. I did a bunch of assistant work, I had a blog tour I organized that started this week and I put live a new sign-up post for a cover reveal.
My computer is still being a pain and is crashing regularly again. I am saving for a new one and hope to be able to afford one soon as it’s really annoying to have it crash so often and it so old it takes age to restart again too, which costs time and productivity.
Update: I also adjusted one of my plugins. First the button to receive an e-mail when i reply to your comment was clicked y default, now you have to click it if you want to receive the e-mail. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I had to change it to be GDPR complaint.
What did I read this week?
I ended up finishing 5 books this week, which sounds a lot. But I actually didn’t read much more than usual, one of these was a DNF, two were short reads and Minder Rising I’ve been reading for a while on my Kobo.
I DNF’d Ruthless Magic after a side character killed one of her pet rats to make a point. I lost all my interest to continue the book after that. The Mermaid’s Journey was really good, the new setting really worked and introduced new challenges. I can’t wait to see how book 3 wraps this series up. The True Adventures of Esther the Wonder Pig I read when my computer had to restart after one of it’s crashes. It was really cute with a wonderful message and I liked the art, although it was a bit short as it’s mainly a kid’s book. Minder Rising was really good and I really like this series. Cat magic was a great short read following the point of view of the cat Sir Kipling from the Lily Singer series. I still have to write my review for the Esther book and cat magic tough as I finished so may books this week, I didn’t get around to reviewing them all yet.

I bought a copy of Cat Magic when it released and already finished reading it. Game of Lies is the sequel to Shoot the Messenger, which was great, so I bought the sequel on release day and hope to read it soon. Priestess Unleashed I got for review and is the third and final book in this series. I plan to read this one next as I can’t wait to see how the series ends. Water and Blood caught my attention as I was looking for new mermaid books to read and this one sounded good and unique.
