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 overall. It had it’s ups and downs as usual. I got plenty of work done this week as well as spend some time in the kitchen.
Work wise it was a good week. I sent out the media kits for two tours starting next week, put a new sign up post live for a YA fantasy blog tour and I had 3 tours I organized running this week. Besides that I did a bit of assistant work as well.
I am struggling a bit with my reading lately and can’t quite find what I want to read, everything sounds good, but nothing quite what I want to read. I had a few 3 star reads in a row, but I am hopeful some of my current reads might turn out to be 4 stars.
I got to spend some time in the kitchen this week and ended up trying two new recipes that both turned out great. Yay! Spending some time in the kitchen does wonders for my mood and I am glad both of these turned out great!
This is the cheese bread I bakes this week. Mostly for my boyfriend as I am not a fan of cheese, unless it’s cream cheese or quark. This one turned out great. The dough was very nice, very hearty and with a bit of spice due to the black pepper that went in there. And no yeast or rising time as this recipe uses beer instead.
Cookies usually take a bit more time and I knew I didn’t have that time, so instead I went for a cake. This cinnamon swirl cake with pecans was on my list to bake for a while now and I am glad I got to try it out. the cake is soft and fluffy and the cinnamon pecan sugar mixture adds that touch of sweetness. It has a strong nutty flavor and it’s delicious!
What did I read this week?
I finished 3 books that were all 3 star reads this week. Elemental started off great and I really enjoyed it, but around mid way I kinda lost interest in it. There was a direction the plot took I didn’t really found interesting and I didn’t like how the main character was pulled into certain directions by the side characters. So sadly this one wasn’t quite for me, it has a great concept and interesting world building. Dialogue was a non-fiction book with some great tips and advice, but something about it wasn’t quite resonating with me and I would’ve liked more examples. The Fighter was a solid read and I liked the couple and their romance, but didn’t really care for the suspense in my current reading mood.
This week I blogged about:
