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 normal week mostly. It did feel like a tense week with the American elections playing out this week. We had some sunny days this week, which was nice after the few weeks with mostly overcast weather we had.
I did work and my usual things. I did have an annoying second visit to the grocery store as one item I needed wasn’t there so I had to return another time. I went back on a time I usually don’t go there and it was way to crowded even with the rising corona numbers and while trying to keep the appropriate space from a guy who was suddenly moving towards me almost bumped into another women who got annoyed at me. I grabbed the products I needed and got out of there as soon as I could. I am sticking to my usual time going forward as it usually isn’t as crowded then.
Besides that it was a good week for work. I made some great progress on a work task for one of my authors, it was a big project to record things for the assistant who is taking over for me when I stop working for that author and I am happy to have that done. I talked with two of my other authors about additional works, so that was nice news as well as I could use the extra work. And then a new tour got booked this week as well. I worked on the media kits for two upcoming tours and put the sign up posts for a royal romance book live already, the other will follow next week. I also had a tour running this week, so did the usual work for that.
I tried a variation on my cookies with pecan nuts and chocolate chips recipe and added peanuts instead. It was a nice twist and they turned out well. I also tried out a recipe for vegan pancakes, I was craving pancakes and didn’t have enough eggs, so i figured I would try a vegan recipe. They turned out great and satisfied my pancake craving.
What did I read this week?
Not the best reading week with two meh reads, but I did finish a good non-fiction book. The Runaway was a good start to this new series, but the book wasn’t really for me or my mood. The start felt a bit slow and I didn’t feel the romance at first. The last 20% or so was very engaging and I am hoping the next book is better. Lord of New York wasn’t as good as the previous two books in the series. I didn’t like how different the main character was and the way she pushed everyone away felt forced. we didn’t see much of the couple and the main female character was only led by her new urges and it just didn’t make for a good read. Time Management for Writers was a good read. I liked how it addressed different topics related to writing, making the most of your writing time and more.
