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 standard week, which was nice after last week. I am getting used to my new computer and am pretty sure I installed most of the programs I need by now. My new (newest? second new screen?) screen finally arrived at Saturday, so we’re planning to install that today. Fingers crossed that one works without any hassles. And then I can return the current one next week.
Even with it being a pretty standard week it was a very full week tough, mostly with work. I did a bunch of hours of assistant work. Send out two media kits for the tour that starts next week and the cover reveal that takes place next week. And I had two tours start this week as well. Last Sunday my boyfriend’s parents visited. Some other things popped up and it just felt like a pretty busy week altogether. I also had an annoying issue I had to deal with. And it’s still really warm here.
It was a good reading week, I finished two great reads. And as July has ended it’s time to have a look at my July reading stats.
July Reading Stats
July was a pretty good reading month. Let’s look a bit more at my reading stats for this month. I was quite interested to see these stats, especially how only half of the books I read had a MF romance. I am doing great with my reading goal to read more other types of romances. I got two great MM romances read and even tried a FF romance. I even had a pretty good balance between review and non review books, which I didn’t realize until I looked at my stats. And lots of different settings I read about this month as well.

What did I read this week?
Heart of a Dire Wolf was really good. It’s such a good series. I also finished Matsuri and Murder by SJ Pajonas, that will be part of this box set that releases next week. It was such a fun read and I liked the change of scenery, the new characters and the mystery

Witchnapped In Westerham and Summer Snoops and Cozy Crimes have been on my wishlist for a while and I bought them both for only $0.99 each when they released this week. Winter Princess was also 99cents on kobo, so I decide to finally buy it. Blazing Light I got for review and is the last and third book in this series. Fly me to the Moon I had already bought with the previous title and cover, but I love the idea of a cozy mystery in space, wanted to support the author and it was 99 cents so I bought a copy on Amazon this time as well. Matsuri and Murder I got for review and already finished reading that one, it was such a fun read.
