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?
Another busy week, after the big success of my review opportunity sale and a bunch of other tours being booked I am working as hard to get these sign-up posts as fast as I can. I got three new sign-ups posts live this week and also did my standard amount of hours of assistant work. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also nice to be so busy with tour work again, it reminds me again why I started this company and what I love about this work. The next few weeks probably still be busy as well while I am working on getting all the sign-up posts live. There also is a tour running that I organized and I sent out the media kit for a tour that’s starting tomorrow.
I do my best to take some time off in the evenings and relax before going to sleep. I’ve been playing this game where you manage an Aquarium, which is a lot of fun. I also got some reading done and made some progress with my audiobook. I even finished one of my non-fiction reads and started a new one
I haven’t found much time for blogging sadly. I am behind on writing a review, which usually never happens and I still have a whole bunch of reviews that I’ve written, but still need to schedule. I haven’t done much blog commenting lately for which I apologize. I try to comment back where I can and reply to comment son my blog at least.
I also went out for lunch with my mom this week, which was fun. We went to one of the places we usually go for lunch and both had a yummy lunch wrap and a smoothie.
For the last two weeks the cat and parrot of my boyfriend’s parents have been staying with us. His parents came to pick them up yesterday again. It’s nice to pet sit for them. It does always take some extra time in a day to take care of them, so it will be nice to have some extra time and peace and quiet again.
What did I read this week?
Valiant Heart was a enjoyable read, it was lacking something me to fully pull me in, but I did like the unquiet steampunk based world.
Devil to Pay turned into a DNf sadly. I love the Nora series by this author, but I just couldn’t get into this one, no matter how hard I tried. Shayne annoyed me, she was rude at times and unlikable and I didn’t really care for her story. The pacing felt off and the writing style with breaking the forth wall took me out of the story. It just wasn’t for me.
Be Calm is a motivational self help book about anxiety and it was a great read, lots of useful information and written in a very motivational tone. I still have to write my review for it.

I got two new books thanks to Netgalley this week. Summoned sounded so good and unique, that I had to request a copy and luckily got approved too. Christmas Cocoa Murder has a story by Maddie Day from the series I am reading by her, so I requested it for that, but I am also looking forward to the other two stories and discovering two new to me authors. I hope to read both soon.
