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 week started of decently and then slowly got worse as my boyfriend had to go back to work and had to work weird times again. I know these are weird times, but I really wish they would give him a consistent schedule. I think the restaurants and cafe’s are supposed to open again on 1 June here and some other places like hairdressers are open already, we’ll see what happens next with the virus and how that goes. I also had a bad headache late this week, which make work challenging, but I couldn’t afford to take time off so I has to work with the headache.
Work wise it was a pretty busy week and I tried to fit in some extra hours of assistant work so I could get some more work done as there was plenty to do this week. I also have an ongoing blog tour, worked on a few things for future tours and sent out a newsletter to my author newsletter list.
My mom’s mother day present arrived on Monday, so luckily it wasn’t too late. Later in the week we talked with each other through Skype as well.
I made some carrot cake this week when I had a sudden craving for carrot cake. I made another peach crumble earlier in the wee. And I also made onion pie for dinner later in the week and it was nice to spend some time cooking and baking.
What did I read this week?
I had a great reading week. Finishing 5 different books, most of which were 4 stars. I finished my non-fiction read Show, Don’t Tell, which was a great read that explains the whole show don’t tell advice and when to show and tell and how to implement it with plenty of tips and examples. Facing West was a steamy MM romance read. I enjoyed it for the most part, but also had a bunch of things that didn’t quite work for me, anything from small things to the main plot lines and romance set up to the fact that it was too heavy on the sex and not enough sweeter scenes. Bonds of Brass was an awesome scifi book with a great romance, it had plenty of action, I liked the romance and the narrator was awesome too. Perilous Hunt is the seventh book in this series. It was a solid read and I liked how the plot lines progressed in this book. My Superstar Romance is a sweet new adult romance book with a theme of dance and music. I liked the romance in this one, the conflict didn’t really work for me, but I liked how both characters grew in their time apart and became better characters for it. I like the glimpse we got of the next main character and look forward to book 2.
