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 week was pretty okay, but a bit tiring at times. I put a new sign-up post live and did some assistant work. I also had another headache again and some days didn’t go as smoothly, but I also had a few very productive days, which was nice.

My sister and her boyfriend visited this week. She baked a delicious lime meringue pie which she took with her when she visited. We drank tea, ate pie and talked a lot. It was fun to catch up.

I managed to finish two books and even got a bit of blog visiting done during the week. I feel like more happened this week, but I can’t really think of anything else to tell. So let’s move on to what I read this week.

What did I read this week?

The Glass PrincessRelief Valve

The Glass Princess was really good. I liked Himika and her men and the interactions between them. And it’s great to get more from this world. There’s a great reveal at the end and I can’t wait for the next book. Relief Valve was a good sequel, but it didn’t catch my attention as much as book 1.

What did I cook for dinner this week?

Building Forever

I did well this week and only got one new book and it’s one I can’t wait to read. Since I read To See the Sun earlier this year by Kelly Jensen I’ve been planning to read more of her books and this one sounds so good!

What are you currently reading?

    A so-so week for me as well. I had headache issues too because our weather has made a few drastic changes (though, I like the cooler, drier temperatures we have now). Glad you got some good work done and had a fun visit with your sister and her boyfriend. Her pie sounds yummy.
    Sorry Relief Valve tapered off a bit for you, but glad the Glass Princess was a hit (pretty cover). Neat that you got a book that you’ve been interested in. I went a little wild with the freebies and review books this week after doing so well for the last month or so.

    Have a good week, Lola!

      Sorry to hear you had headaches as well this week. The pie was really good.

      I think it mostly was the mystery in relief Valve that didn’t quite work for me, but I hope to enjoy the rest of the series more again. And the Glass princess was really good.

    Glad you got to visit with your sister 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever tried meringue pie. I don’t know if I’d like like soft meringue though? I’ve always loved crunchy meringue though. used to make meringue cookies for Christmas each year and then hoard them and eat the whole tin before the party lol.

    Some weeks there just isn’t much to talk about. I hope this week is a good one for you though!

      It was a fun visit. The meringue on the pie is kinda soft and a bit fluffy, it tastes pretty good.

      I really couldn’t think of anything more to say, some weeks these posts almost writes themselves and other weeks I can’t think of anything to mention.

      I am glad I had some productive days this week.

      The Glass Princess is a spin-off from the Guardians of Skye and Shadow series, it works best to read it after that one, but might work as a standalone. I remember you DNF’d the first book in the Guardians of Skye and Shadow series, but you might like this one better.

    I’m sorry you had a headache again this week 🙁 Sounds like you had an otherwise okay week, pie and visiting with your sister sounds really nice! I don’t think I’ve ever had Lime pie before, but I love pie, so I think I’d like it. Hope this week is a bit better 🙂

    • Lola

      Headaches are so annoying :(. But it was a pretty decent week besides that. I really like this lime pie my sister made.

    Ooh sorry about the headache. I hope this week is much better for you. Yay for a visit from your sister and yummy pie though. That’s always a perk. Sorry to hear you didn’t love Heat Valve as much as the first – I hope you like the other books in the series. 🙂

      The mystery in Heat Valve didn’t work as much for me, but I hope I’ll enjoy the rest of the books more again.
