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 okay week mostly. I am still not out of my funk, but I do have some better days and am hopeful I am working in the right direction at least. It’s just going slowly, but even slow progress is progress. The weather turned a bit colder this week and we had some rain as well. I still managed to go out for a walk most days, as I believe it helps me get out of my funk slowly. The overcast skies made for great walking weather actually as it’s less bright and I like the smell of the ground after it has rained. But I did got caught in the rain twice this week, which was less nice.
We finished watching the second season of Star Trek Discover, while it’s not as good as season 1, it was still pretty enjoyable and it all just looks fantastic. I also made some progress with my current audiobook and finished two books and a novella this week.
It also was a good week for work. I sent out the media kit for a tour that starts next week. And I sent out a newsletter to my author mailing list, which I hadn’t done in a long time, but I suddenly had a bout of inspiration and wrote a whole newsletter and sent it out the same day. I was so happy to got that done and contact my author list again. I did a bunch of hours of assistant work as well as usual.
I posted on my Lola’s Blog Tours Instagram account for the first time this week. I have had an account for a while, but hadn’t figured out how to post from my computer. Then I remembered a blog post I saw and had saved a while back on Dark Thoughts and figured I would give it a try and see if I could post from my computer. The technique she outlined worked and now I can finally post on my Lola’s Blog Tours Instagram account.
Let’s take a look at what I read last month. In April I read 8 books. Only one of these got a 3 star and the rest all were 4 star reads, so it was a good reading month even tough I didn’t read as much as previous months. 7 of these were full length books and only one was a novella. One audiobook (which also was a re-read) and 7 ebooks. I read a nice variety of genres: 2 urban fantasy, 2 fantasy romance, 2 cozy mystery, 1 science fiction romance and 1 paranormal romantic suspense. So mostly fantasy and mystery books this month, which seems to fit what I am in the mood for currently. Only one young adult book this month, the others were all adult books. 5 of the books I read were books I got for review, 1 I got through a subscription service (the audiobook) and 2 books I bought.
What did I read this week?
Doom and Bloom was a great read and I am really enjoying this series so far. Skip Trace also was a great book in a series I am enjoying, although due to my current mood I didn’t enjoy it as much as the previous books. Bearadise Lodge was a fun short read that’s part of the Fractured Stars series.

I bought the Rogue Prince as I thought I would like to start another one of this author’s series soon. I already have the first 3 books in her other series and I liked the sound of this one, so I bought book 1. Mindfulness and Meditation I got through Netgalley, I’ve been doing some meditation for a while now and thought it would be be interesting to read a book on the topic and learn about some more techniques.
