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 week we got hit with some very warm weather. And as we don’t have air conditioning, it’s hard to cool down. Besides that I got the flu, although that almost was a blessing in disguise. As I had a low fever the warm weather didn’t feel as warm as normal. Until later in the week when I started feeling better and the weather only got hotter. It made it hard to sleep as well. So most of the week I spend sneezing and sniffing. And then sweating away thanks to the heat. I tried to go for some small walks, but with this hot weather it quickly became too hot. I think it’s finally cooling down a bit, today it was nice outside, but inside the house it’s still pretty warm and humid.

Besides that it actually was a pretty good week mostly. I got most of the work I wanted to do done. A new sign-up post went live, I did some other Lola’s Blog Tours work, sent out a media kit for a tour that starts next week and did some hours of assistant work. And some new events got booked, I am glad people seem to like the discount.

And for those who follow my mildew struggles, I am still working on the mildew. It’s very slow going with the vinegar, but I am seeing improvement. Especially the lighter spots are almost gone by now.

What did I read this week?

Last CommandHidden gemMimic and the Space EngineerMimic and the Journey Home

Last Command was a free prequel novella in the Fallen Empire series that was prat of the box set, it was a fun novella that gave some extra background information about Leonidas. Hidden gem was a DNF for me, it did grip me and then there was some dark stuff and I figured I wasn’t in the right mood for it. Mimic and the Space Engineer and Mimic and the Journey Home are the first two episodes in that series. They were both fun, fast paced sci-fi reads.

Broken Flyght I got for review from the author. I love this author’s books, so I started it as soon as I finished my current read. Murky Waters and Cleon Moon I bought. I enjoyed the first mermaid cozy mystery book, so decided to buy book 2 too. And Cleon Moon is the fifth book in a series I am enjoying so far.

    It’s been too dang hot here in North Carolina, Lola, and like you I’ve been suffering through the blazing heat with a cold that just won’t go away. So I totally feel your pain, and hope you get cooler weather and feel better soon. Hugs, RO

    • It’s no fun having a cold while it’s so warm as well. I hope you feel better soon! I am doing better already since last Sunday 🙂

    • The heat was really bad last week and even worse with no AC. I was happy when i went grocery shopping and could enjoy their AC for a bit.

      I’ve been enjoying Lindsay Buroker’s books so far and I already finished the new Pajonas book 🙂

    • I heard it was just as hot in the UK as here :(. We don’t have AC here either and that makes the heat harder to deal with. I am glad this week was cooler.

    • If it continues to be that hot we might have to invest in one of those portable window AC’s, that sounds handy. Luckily this week it’s back to more manageable temperatures.

    • Luckily the extreme heat only lasted for a few days, but it was a tough few days, especially as even in the nights it didn’t cool down so opening the windows didn’t help. This week was a lot cooler again luckily.
