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. Monday was the last day of the year and it mostly was a normal day for me where I did work and did some end of the year stuff for my company. In the evening I played a game and we watched some fireworks. Then Tuesday was the start of 2019, I set up my new reading tracking document for this year and some new year stuff for my company too.
Besides that it mostly was a normal work week. I got a bunch of hours of assistant work done, sent out a media kit for a tour and did some standard Lola’s Blog Tours work.
I also had the tedious task of removing photo’s on Flickr. When I was new to blogging I thought it was a great idea to host my images somewhere else as I had heard that advice then and I used to host my images on Flickr. Until I found out what a bad idea that actually is, then I switched. Which was years ago, but I still uploaded a lot of my photo’s there just because I liked having them there. Now Flickr is cracking down on free accounts and I had about 700 pictures to check and remove as else they would decide which of my pictures to remove starting with the oldest. And guess what those oldest pictures are the ones that are only hosted there, so I am removing all the pictures that are already on my site and downloading and uploading the ones that aren’t. I had already moved over quite a few pictures, so that saves some time, but still had to double check everything. It’s a long process, but I hope I can most of that done before the deadline. What a pain. At least it was sort of fun to look back through some old pictures.
What did I read this week?
Him was just an okay read, guess it wasn’t quite the read I was in the mood for and I thought it had a bit too much sex and not enough touching/ caring/ sweet moments. Pico’s Crush was awesome, I so enjoy re-reading this series this time in audiobook format, the narration is so well done and I love this series. The Vampire Knitting Club was just okay, fun concept, but it had so many tropes and clichés in the first book and didn’t grab my attention.
What did I cook for dinner this week?

I spend some of my Christmas money on books this week. I has been waiting for the release of Silk and Steel as it sounds like a great read and bought it as soon as it went up on the author’s website. The Hearstone Thief just got a new cover which caught my attention and I decide to buy it. The rest of the books are the later books in the Chaos Station series. I am enjoying book 1 and decide to buy the rest of the series already.
