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 pretty decent week. This week started quite calm on Monday, I didn’t have as much work that had a high priority, so I finally took the time to get some of those tasks done that had fallen to the side in the past few weeks. It felt great to get caught up with those things. Then on Tuesday work picked up again and got busier, which stayed that way most of the week. I had three tours I organized running this week, another media kit for a tour next week that had to go out and more Lola’s Blog Tours and assistant work that had to be done. Friday was a calmer day again as I didn’t do much work as we went out to have a late lunch with my sister, which was fun.
I finally made some time on Monday and wrote out and scheduled a bunch of recipe posts. I had taken pictures of quite a few recipes that were still on my list and already wrote and scheduled some of them. I am hoping to do a recipe post a month going forward again :). I have a nice pumpkin soup recipe scheduled for later this month. I have a lot more recipes on my list that I want to type out, some I already have taken the pictures for, I hope to get some more done this week. I also had a new idea to keep recipes incorporated in my Sunday Post without featuring what I have eaten each week like I used to do, so we’ll see how this goes.
It also was a good reading week, I finished two non-fiction books I had been reading for a while and I finished the audiobook I had been listening to for a while now. Then I read High Flyght which got one of those rare 5 star ratings and I managed to finish a story from Pets in Space 4. I tried out a new recipe (or actually cobbled together tow different recipes) for a banana chocolate cake with nuts, which turned out awesome. We watched Tremors 4 this week and it’s such a fun movie.
What did I read this week?
Love, Lies and Hocus Pocus: Legends was great in audio. The whole series is fabulous in audiobook and I like how the narrator does all the different voices. Eff This Meditation was a good book on mediation, mindfulness, relaxing and self-care. But it wasn’t fully for me as didn’t have as many things I was eager to try out, partly because of techniques I was already familiar with and others not appealing to me. It was a pretty formatted book. High Flyght was awesome, I loved it. There’s so much going on in this book and I liked seeing how Vivian made things work with two guys now in her relationship network. Then I finished Strangers to Superfans which was an informative and pleasant tor ad non-fiction book. And I also finished a story from Pets in Space 4. I update my review on Goodreads once I finish a story.
I am trying something new to add to my Sunday Post, the Food corner, where I spotlight some of the recipes I posted before on my blog. Usually with some theme or something. We’ll see how this goes. As it’s autumn this week I wanted to start off with some pumpkin recipes I featured on the blog before and I recommend these:
- Potatoes and pumpkin mash
- Pumpkin Curry
- Pumpkin Soup
- Pumpkin and Apple Risotto
- Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Cookies
This week I blogged about:

Harvest and Resistance I got for review from the author. I hope to get to these soon. Pets in Space 4 I bought on release day, I enjoyed the previous pets in Space anthologies so I hope this one will be great too. I finally got approved for Graveyard Shift on Netgalley, the first two books in this series were great and I am looking forward to this one. Broken Girl vs Fix-it Boy I got for review from the author. Book 1 in this series was great and I already started reading this one.
