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 week. I still struggled with being tired, but I got quite a bit of work done and had some fun too. I did my best to sleep enough every night in hopes that it would help against my feelings of tiredness, but most days I still felt tired. I think I am doing a bit better now, so I hope it stays that way.
It was a good week for work. I am working on a new blog tour sign-up, that I hope to have live next week. I did some other Lola’s Blog Tours work. And I did some hours of assistant work.
My battle with the mildew continued this week. The mildew is getting less, but it is very slow going. After starting with baking soda and vinegar and I now switched tactics. I bought a sprayer like the ones you use for plants and I fill that with vinegar and water and spray that on the spots each day. I also did some other cleaning around the house. It’s always nice to do a bout of cleaning and have the house look nice afterwards.
My boyfriend and I went out for lunch at a place close by that we wanted to try. We both had a scone and a piece of pie. The scones were really good and the pies were great too. I had a great cheesecake and my boyfriend had a chocolate cake. Definitely will be back as they had lots of other pies (both savory and sweet ones) that I want to try.
I finished a puzzle this week! I’ve been into doing my jigsaw puzzles again lately and I finished the one I was working on. It had been on the floor for months as I took a break from puzzling for a while, so it was great to finally finish it. And I already started a new one. I also bought a new plant this week (it was discounted, lol!) as a while ago some plants died and we had some empty plant pots around. I really like the new plant and it’s nice to have some extra green in the house.

What did I read this week?
Spellcaster Academy was a fun introduction to the series, but didn’t fully pull me in. It was pretty fast paced, but only a few places that felt a bit rushed. There are some big happenings already in the first episode which was nice and I liked her cat Nine. Starseers was another great read in this series, I like how it continues with the same vibe as the previous books with lots of action and the characters getting in trouble and out of it again. In this book they meet the starseers, which was interesting. Tails of The Deep was a fun mermaid cozy mystery, while the mystery wasn’t as strong as in most cozies, it just was a lot of fun to read.
