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 an okay-ish week. Some days were a bit meh, but others were quite good. It was a pretty good week work wise and I got a good amount of hours of assistant hours done. I also sent out media kits for the blog tour that starts next week. On Wednesday I had a pretty bad headache, I did my work for the day and then took things slowly.
I have some trouble kicking this funk that’s I’ve been in for the past few months. Some days really are a struggle, but then other days go smoothly. And the grey and gloomy weather sure isn’t helping either, I am definitely ready for spring to get here. What is helping is good books. I also seem to have a lower tolerance for books that don’t grab my attention and after struggling through half of Arctic Sun before it got better I actually DNF’d two audiobooks this week within half an hour of starting as they weren’t gripping me (with one the story didn’t grip me and the other the narrator didn’t work for me). Until I found an audiobook that worked for me. And now I am reading 3 books that I all like which is great and makes me happy.
Earlier in the week I also started copying some of my reviews over to Bookbub. As I figured if I can’t review on Amazon, I’ll make sure to review on Bookbub instead. I haven’t heard back from Amazon besides their initial e-mail about not having spend $50, which I have. And then later in the week I thought I would try and leave a review and noticed I can review again on Amazon, yay! So I guess that’s fixed. And now that I started with Bookbub, guess I’ll just review upcoming books there as well.
On Saturday my mom and her husband stopped by to help install the new mosquito netting on our windows before it gets warm. I had to remove the old ones last year when they were painting the outside of our building, so it’s great to have the new ones up. They also helped fix another small thing and then stayed a bit for some tea and talking.
And we watched Black Panther last week and it was quite good and the whole movie looked great too.
What did I read this week?
I really enjoyed my re-read of Love Lies and Hocus Pocus Beginnings, the audiobook version was great and I think the narrator was perfect for the book. She also did a great southern accent and her voice for Lily was spot on. Book 2 should be out on audio soon too, so I plan to listen to that too. Arctic Sun was just okay, I struggled with the first half and didn’t feel the romance with it being a bit one sides at first and one guy pushing the other a bit into it, but the second half was a lot better with more depth and intimacy. I liked the Alaska setting, but would’ve more descriptions.

One of my most anticipated releases for this year landed in my inbox this week and I started it as soon as I finished my current read. And then The Daydreamer Detective Finds Her Calling arrived later this week. Two Pajonas reads to read in the same month, it certainly was my lucky week :).
