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 just one of those bleh weeks. I didn’t feel good and it just seemed to drag on and I struggled through it. On top of that I’ve had a few meh/ just okay reads, which didn’t help. Probably also because of my mood I couldn’t enjoy them as much, it works both ways probably. Luckily my audiobook and kobo ebook has been great, which really helped a lot and I listened a lot this week. I finally picked up a Carol Van Natta book on my ipad too and that seems to have broken the circle of meh reads.
Then Thursday evening my computer monitor suddenly didn’t work and after some trying things out, we figured out the cable didn’t work anymore for some reason even tough it’s only half a year old. So I had to order a new cable, which luckily solved the problem, but it was still a bit of a scare.
Luckily there were some good things this week as well. It was a productive work week. I got a good amount of hours of assistant work done and there was a tour I organized that took place this week.
I mentioned the Flickr problem I was having last week. They’re limited free accounts and deleting any pictures you have more than 1000, which means I had to delete a bunch of them and check they were on my blog already firs. I manged to delete enough of my photo’s before their deadline, so I don’t have to be afraid of them deleting any pictures at least. I plan to check the rest later as well, so nothing will be only uploaded there anymore.
I’ve been spending some more time in the kitchen lately. I baked some great American pancakes last weekend. And I discovered a recipe for roasted chickpeas that I make regularly now, it’s the only way I seem to like chickpeas. I tried making beet chips yesterday, but they didn’t turn out quite right. The flavor was good, but if I baked them long enough to turn crispy they got a burnt taste we didn’t like. I plan to try it again with different beets soon.
What did I read this week?
Lera of Lunos was a great ending to the series, but I had a few issues with it and my weird reading mood prevented me from enjoying it as much as I would’ve liked. Silk and Steel unfortunately was a DNF for me. I might get back to it later at some point, but I couldn’t stomach the dark parts anymore at this time. Chaos Station was a greta read and I look forward to continuing the series.
What did I cook for dinner this week?

Fringe Realms I bought on release day when it was 99 cents. I’ve been curious about this one since I first heard of it, so I hope it’s good. Not Dead Yet is written by one of the authors who wrote Chaos Station (I have already read multiple books by the other author) and I was curious to read some of her solo work and I liked the sound of this one. I eventually decided to request it on netgalley as I hope to be able to read it later this month.
