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 was a lot better than the previous one, but also was a bit of the aftermath of everything going on, so it still didn’t feel as relaxing as I had hoped. Thanks everyone again for your kind and helpful comments on my last Sunday Post it really helps.
On Monday I decided to would fix the email invoice problem and actually managed to do so, once I got into contact with another employee it all got resolved easily. Which leads me to believe the first person I had contact with didn’t know all the ins and outs enough to help me. That was a weight of my shoulders to have that resolved and have the stress away. After such a stressful event I always feel a bit drained so that stuck with me for a bit.
I’ve also have been some troubles getting my sleep routine back on track, so it’s been all over the place this week. Some days I seemed to need way more sleep and sleep in a lot, but then that put me behind a bit for the day, so then I am scrambling to get everything done and have difficulties getting to sleep on time. I hope next week goes smoother in that regard.
As for the humidity issues in our house, we settled into a new routine where we air out the house for about half an hour in the morning after we just woke up and the central heating isn’t on yet, then put on the heating for the rest of the day. It seems to work well and the humidity has gotten less. It’s still quite humid outside, so we probably need to continue this for a while longer.
On the reading font I decided to just focus on what I want to read this month, no focus on review copies, but if that’s what I am in the mood for I would read them. I started the month with a great re-read and now picked up a cozy mystery I got from Netgalley earlier this year, I hadn’t gotten around to reading it back then and I am glad I picked it up now. I also started playing a new game, it’s a bit like Pokémon with how you capture monsters and battle other tamers. It’s so much fun and a bit nostalgic and fresh at the same time as I played so much Pokémon as a kid.
I am so trying to get the Christmas presents for my mom and sister all bought and shipped to them. I am almost done with that and hope to finish that next week. I had a video chat with my mom this week to check in as we hadn’t spoken each other for a while and decided to do video chat with Christmas as well as corona cases are still high here.
And besides that I’ve been busy with work still this week, which is great! I’ve done a good amount of assistant work hours and worked on a new task that came in. I put two new tours live, one blog tour and a bookstagram blitz. And got in some new tour requests as well. I am so happy with how business is doing and really hope it keeps up!
And two of the 2021 challenges I want to join were live, so I want to announce I am joining these again next year.
I am joining Coyer 2021. I look forward to the new coyer and it sounds like the organizers have some fun plans for 2021!
And I also joining the 2021 new release challenge. I always read a bunch of new releases. I am hoping to focus more on re-reading and reading books I bought, so I am setting my goal a bit lower: 31-60 books per year – New Release Pro
What did I read this week?
I finished two great reads this week. I thoroughly enjoyed my re-read of Chaos in Kadoma Ward, which is my favorite book in the series so far. And I hope to get to book 3 soon, so I am all caught up again with the story before book 4 releases somewhere next year. Summoner of Storms was the last book in the first SPECTR series and I enjoyed how it wrapped up this part of the story, there were some great reveals and developments plot and romance wise. It formed a satisfying conclusion to this part of the story and I look forward to starting the next series soon.
