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?

Again this was not a good week. Not sure if ate anything wrong or caught a flu or what, but last weekend I was nauseous on and off and then Monday I felt better again, but on Tuesday and Wednesday I got a major headache that went paired with nausea and slight dizziness at times. I didn’t get much work done on those two days. On Thursday I felt a lot better luckily, but still felt a bit off at times and tired. By now I am starting to feel a bit more normal again, but it was not a good week.

I did still got some work done. I did my standard tour stops checking, e-mail and new sign-ups checking work for Lola’s Blog Tours, although I fell a few days behind at times. I had a new tour that started this week. I did some hours assistant work, just fewer hours than I had hoped for. Not quite the week of catching up and getting ahead I had hoped for, but I am glad with the work I did got done.

I did got quite a bit of reading done. I made some extra time for reading when I felt bad and also made good progress on my audiobook. I also tried out a recipe I found for a coconut cake that turned out great. My list of recipes I still need to type out and schedule on my blog just grows longer and longer. We also watched the second Tremors movie and went out for a nice walk.

What did I read this week?

Mischief and MayhemChristmas Cocoa MurderCity Girl vs Country Boy

Mischief and Mayhmen was a great read, I am enjoying this MM romance series set at a fictional theme park. I liked reading about this couple, how different they were and seeing a new part of the park. Christmas Cocoa Murder was a fun Christmas themed cozy mystery anthology, I enjoyed all three of the stories. City Girl vs Country Boy was amazing, both heartbreaking and heartwarming. These characters go through a lot, but there’s also hope and some beautiful moments amidst the hurt.

This week I blogged about:

Review: Dine With Me by Layla Reyne
Lola’s Kitchen: Banana Snickerdoodles Recipe

What to expect next week on the blog:

– Review: Christmas Cocoa Murder by Carlene O’Connor, Maddie Day and Alex Erickson

    • The tremors movies really are a lot of fun. We haven’t seen the latest few yet, so we’re doing a re-watch of the earlier ones before we watch the ones we haven’t seen yet.

  1. I am so sorry to hear that you felt poorly Lola! Headaches are the worsts! I’ve suffered from them once a week for months and am trying to cut down on milk etc to see if it can improve them.

    • Headaches really are the worst, especially when nothing seems to help. Mine have lessened a lot lately, but I still get them now and then. I hope you can figure out what improves your headaches.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve not been well. There seems to be a bunch of nasty illnesses going the rounds, my daughter and the children have all been ill this last week. I hope you feel better, Lola.

    • Luckily this week I felt a lot better. It might be an illness I caught or something indeed. Sorry to hear your daughter and the children have been ill last week as well.

    • This week was a lot better luckily, thanks! Mischief and Mayhem was great, it really like this series so far and would definitely recommend it.
