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 enough work, I did assistant work, put a new sign-up post for a tour live and sent out a media kit for a blog tour that starts at the end of this month. Also some non work related stuff that popped up and had to be done. My mom stopped by for a visit this week, which was nice. I tried out a new cookies recipe, lemon and banana cookies. Which were pretty good, but sadly they got a bit soft the next day already as they contained banana.
Sadly it continues to be very warm here and we might get even warmer weather next week., It sure is difficult to keep focused and productive when it’s so warm and our apartment is very difficult to cool down. It’s also a struggle to keep my plants alive as they don’t like all the sun either. I already had to move some out of the windowsill so they don’t get direct sunlight. And apparently we’re getting even warmer weather next week.
We finished watching the first season of The Orville this week, it was a lot of fun, but sadly season 2 isn’t live yet. So now we started watching Star Trek Discovery which is pretty good so far, it has a very cinematic feel somehow. But what have they done to the Klingons? They are totally different and it’s really hard to adjust that with how we’ve sene the Klingons so far And it’s announced there will be a new season of Star wars the Clone Wars, which I am really excited about as we really enjoyed that series.
What did I read this week?
After I finished To See the Sun last week I knew exactly what I wanted to read next, so I ignored my review books and picked up Gemini Keeps Capricorn. And I was right, it was exactly the book i was in the book for. I really enjoyed it and I love how this author writes her slow burn romances. Wesley and Lloyd made for such a great couple and I liked their banter and dynamic together. And now I am all up to date with this series before book four releases later this year. Torn Soul was a fun read, but two new to me authors and one of the first FF romances i read. I enjoyed it, but had a small issue with something related to the romance and the world building felt very minimal, which made it hard to get a feel of the world.
What did I cook for dinner this week?
