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 busy week. I did a bunch of hours of assistant work, there was a lot that needed to be done this week, so I fit in as many hours as I could this week. On Lola’s Blog Tours I put a new sign-up post live for a non-fiction motivation book aimed at young adults. And a tour I organized started this week.
I had a few meh days this week, I hope I don’t fall back into my funk as some days were challenging this week. But overall it was still a decent week, just busy and a few stressful days. I made time every night to do at least a bit of gaming and reading before going to bed. I also managed to go out for a some walks again. The weather has been all over the place lately, from sunny and warm days, to rain, to windy weather.
And I managed to get all of my June ARC’s read and reviewed by now already, it’s great to be ahead with my ARC’s. There’s still one ARC I know I am receiving soon and a new one I just got this week, but besides that I’ve caught up for upcoming ARC’s for now, which is nice as I had quite a few June ARCs. And I am not even sure when future ones arriving, although with the amount of ARC teams I am on and daily visits to Netgalley it won’t be long before I add more. I am hoping to fit in a few non ARC reads on my ipad as well before new ARC’s arrive and maybe get through a few older ARC’s.
What did I read this week?
I did manage to finish three books this week. Honor’s Flight was a great sequel and I am really enjoying this fast paced action filled series so far. Down in Flames was an enjoyable sixth book in this series and I liked catching up with familiar characters, but I struggled a bit with the slow start and some other things. I really enjoyed my re-read of Love, Lies and Hocus Pocus Allies as I listened to it in audio this time, I love the audio versions of this series so far. The narrator does an awesome job with the narration. I also was surprised how much I had forgotten of the second half of the book.
What did I cook for dinner this week?
This week I blogged about:
– Review: Give up the Ghost by Jenn Burke
– Review: ‘Twas the Knife Before Christmas by Jacqueline Frost
I reviewed an awesome paranormal romantic suspense LBGT read Give up the Ghost this week. I really am enjoying this series so far and the awesome group of character. And I shared my review of a Christmas themed cozie ‘Twas the Knife Before Christmas, which was a great sequel and a fun read if you’re looking for a Christmas themed series.
What to expect next week on the blog:
– Review: Honor’s Flight by Lindsay Buroker
– Lola’s Kitchen: Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
For next week I have my review for Honor’s Flight scheduled. I had so many ARC’s for this month, that I somehow still had an open spot for next week, so I could fit in my review for Honor’s Flight that I finished this week. This continues to be a great action packed sci-fi series. And I have a recipe scheduled for chocolate cookies with vanilla, that taste great!

I really liked the sample of the Fateseal audiobook, so I spent one of the audio credits I won a while ago on this one. Okheania I spotted on Netgalley and it sounded and looked good, so I got a copy.
