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 busy week, but I also managed to take two days off. The first three days I did as much work as I could and after those three days I was so tired, I also hadn’t slept well. I put two new sign-up posts live (one blog tour and one review opportunity), I had a blog tour running and plenty of assistant work to keep me busy.
Then Thursday and Friday I took two days off from work. On Thursday we visited a zoo, which was a lot of fun. It was a beautiful day, sunny, but not too warm and it was fun to see all the animals. It was quite busy in the zoo though, so that was a bit tiring and at times it was hard to find a good spot to watch the animals. On Friday we had to go to dentist for check-up (everything was fine luckily) and I ran some other errands, I didn’t do any work that day either. There’s also some stuff around the house we got done. One of our plants got infected with mite that we had to throw out unfortunately. Although those two days off weren’t as relaxing as I had hoped it was still nice to not work for two whole days. I should try and do that more often.
After that it was back to work again. I am surprised how much work seem to pile up with only two days off, so Saturday I tried my best to catch up again a bit, which was tiring. I am still a bit behind, but I hope next week I can get caught up again. It also was my birthday this week and I baked a cheesecake for myself to celebrate. It’s delicious. I hope to spend some of the money I got for my birthday on books today. I also have some more work and blogging stuff I hope to catch up on.
What did I read this week?
Summoned was a decent read, I loved the start of the book, Zahara and the whole jinn world building. But I struggled a bit with the pace, how certain events lacked impact and how character motivations and emotions were a bit lacking. Rival Princess was a fun romance read with an unique setting. I liked the uniqeu setting of a theme park and it was just exactly the type of fun sweet romance I was in the mood for.
This week I blogged about:
What to expect next week on the blog:
– Review: Tails From the deep by Diane Vallere
Besides that I hope to read and review Mortal trinity and get my review up for that or if I can’t finish it in time I might move another review forward.

Rival Princes sounded so fun and with an unique setting that I bought a copy. It takes place in a fictional fairytale theme park. I am almost finished and bought book 2 as it’s a lot of fun to read. Mortal trinity I got for review and it the last book in the series. I am a bit afraid to start it.
