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?
I am not even sure why, but this week didn’t go smoothly. It’s not even that I was more busy than normal, but somehow it did feel that way. There are tasks that I didn’t seem to get to. I also had a short headache early in the week and then a massive headache that lasted a whole day.
This was the last week of this month, so I finished up the assistant work for each of my authors this week. I also worked on a new sign-up post and media kit, but didn’t get to finish that, so that will be live next week. There was a blitz that ran this week too.
I went out for lunch with my mom, which was fun. It was a rare sunny day so we sat outside and enjoyed our bagels. I also got a delicious blueberry muffin.
Oh and small question, I noticed more and more people don’t use commentluv when leaving a comment on my blog. I was wondering why, is something not working correctly or are people purposefully not using it? I kinda like commentluv, but half of the time just click on the blog link if I go and visit and then pick a post to comment on.

What did I read this week?
Pirate Consort was a great read, it had a bit of a slow start, but got better the further I got in the book. Obsessed with the Vampire was good, I liked how the plot got advanced in this book and there was one romance I liked and another one I had some issues with.

The Harbinger, Immortal Plunder and Glass Princess I got for review. I bought the other two. The Harbinger is the first book I accepted thanks to an e-mail review request this year I think, it sounds good. Abandoned Heart is a Reverse Harem contemporary romance and I liked the sound of this one. Bets in Show has been on my wishlist for a while now and I finally decided to buy it, it has a cat shifter, which sounds so fun. And how pretty is that cover for Immortal Plunder? It sounds totally awesome too. The Glass Princess in the first book in a spin-off series form the Guardians of Sky and Shadow series, which I loved. I started this one the day I received my copy. It’s so awesome to be back in that world!
