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 another full and busy week. I put a new sign-up post for a book blitz live and a new Christmas themed review opportunity. I also fit in a bunch of extra hours for one of my authors and did my standard hours for most of my other authors.
I finished listening to my second audiobook, it was really good and I started listening to book 3 in the series already. It’s been a pretty good reading week and I like how audiobooks help me read more already. I haven’t had as much time for blog visiting and replying to comment as usual, but I hope to do more of that next week. I also hope to work on my favorite reads of 2019 post next week, so I can have it live by 31 December.
As for my burn wound update. It is recovering well, still a little bit red, but looking better each day. The smallest burns already colored back a lot more to my normal skin color, but the bigger burns take a bit longer.
I had some ereader troubles this week, after doing an update my e-reader was unresponsive and I had to do a hard reboot and lost all my books. Then when I tried to do the first set up again the Kobo program wouldn’t work well with my ereader. I spent a lot of time trying to fix it and then asking support for help. In the end we found a work around to skip the setup and use another program to put books on my ereader. It’s not ideal, but at least it works and I can still read on my ereader.
I’ve decided to join Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer’s audiobook challenge. Now that I am getting into audiobooks I thought it would be fun to join this challenge. I hope to read at least 12 audiobooks next year. So I set my goal at Stenographer (can listen while multitasking) 10-15.
What did I read this week?
I finished 3 books this week. The Lion Mistress Book 1 was a good read, but due to my high expectations and the main character being a bit difficult to like at first I didn’t enjoy it as much as I had hoped. I hope I’ll enjoy book 2 more as it is a great start to the series. Over The Falls was such a fun read with two great main characters who slowly fall in love and an awesome setting in a beach town. Minder Rising is the second audiobook I listened to and I love the narration for this series and it’s fun to re-read these before book 5 comes out.
What did I cook for dinner this week?

I Know Lucy and Set Me Free I bought as part of a box set that had both books and which was for sale for only 99 cents. Shifting Destiny I bought when it was only 99 cents as it has at least one story in it that I want to read and I hope I can find some new to me authors in this one as well. Breakaway also was 99 cents and had been on my wishlist for a bit, so I bought a copy. Lera of Lunos I got for review and it’s the fourth and last book in this series, I already read and enjoyed the first 3 books.
