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 not a good week, but there were some good parts luckily. Last Sunday Post I mentioned I caught a flu, well by Monday morning I felt a lot better and then Monday evening I started feeling worse again and the rest of the week I spent sick again. Seems I caught another flu or maybe a cold and then a flu, who knows. I am tired of being sick and hopefully I feel better soon. As I am writing this Saturday evening I still feel pretty bad. And the problem with running my own business is that I can’t easily take a day off. So I still worked every day as much as I could and made sure the most important things got done at least. It’s been difficult to focus on work, but I am glad at least I got the most important things done.
I had two tours running that I organized and some other Lola’s Blog Tours work that needed to be done as well as some hours of assistant work that I did, although less than I had hoped to do. On Thursday I went out for lunch with my mom, it was a fun lunch and it was nice to be out for a bit, but also tiring as I wasn’t feeling too well yet. I managed to finish some books this week, but haven’t been able to do much blogging. I apologize for my lack of commenting back this week.
I did again do some baking, strangely enough I like baking when I am sick. I baked something new this weekend, it’s called Babka. It’s a sweet bread dough with chocolate swirls in it in this case. There are also cinnamon, nutella and other versions out there. I found quite some different recipes on Pinterest. It’s a pain to make as it has to rise multiple times and you have to mix the dough for 10 minutes first, but it did turn out great. I posted a picture below. I also made crepes for the first time and while they were a bit too thick, they tasted amazing and they turned out great.
What did I read this week?
I got quite some books reads this week. First I finished Graveyard Shift which was an awesome third book in this series, I really liked this installment with plenty of suspense and I liked seeing the couple work as a team. JOMO was exactly what I expected, it’s a book full of ideas on how to spend your time at home. It was fun to read through the ideas, although some ideas were a bit similar. Harvest was a well written and interesting short story told forma robots point of view, the robots point of view was very well done and added an extra dimensions to the events. Slaying Monsters for the Feeble was an exciting action packed read and the second book in this spin-off series. I enjoyed it a lot and liked Robin and Zylas interactions.
For this week’s food corner let’s look at soups. I think soups are great for this of the year, when I am sick I always feel like eating soup and I just shared a new soup recipe this week, so I figured it would be a good pick for this week’s theme.
This week I blogged about:
