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 bit of a weird week. My boyfriend went on vacation with some friends, he got invited for this before his burnout and decided to still go. He’s back now and had fun even though he’s tired. I visited a nearby city and got bitten by a seagull who wanted my last bite of bread. I called that doctor when I got home and had to stop by the next day to get a tetanus shot just in case. So that wasn’t the best start of this week.
I didn’t get as much work done as I had hoped as I was quite tired due to not sleeping as well and I had a bad headache late this week. Luckily I got the most important things done, some assistant work, replying to emails, I sent out the media kits for a tour starting next week and I put a new sign up post live for a YA summer romance blog tour. I also got two new authors this week for whom to do assistant work for, which is awesome timing as one of my current authors recently reduced my hours, so that meant I had space in my schedule to take on these new authors.
I managed to try out some new recipes this week. I made a gnocchi dish with red bell pepper, tomatoes and vegetarian meatballs which turned out great. I even got motivation to do a recipe post for it, which will be live on my blog next week. All the recipes I’ve done so far you can find on this page.
I was talking with Sophia about s’mores and mentioned I never had them. She found a recipe for s’mores that you could make in the oven and that listed alternatives to graham crackers as I can’t find those here. I gave it a try and it turned out great, although the vegan marshmallows I bought didn’t melt as much.
What did I read this week?
Butter, Sugar, Magic was unfortunately not the book for me. I really wanted to like this one, but it just wasn’t working for me. Nothing was gripping me and I didn’t like how long it took the main character to believe in magic.
Legacy of the Lost was a great read. The pacing was done well and the adventure treasure hunting and finding her mom vibe worked really well. I already bought the next book.
Sundays with Oliver is one of the best books I read this year. It has a beautiful romance and I really felt their connection. This book made me think and feel. I loved the characters and how real they all felt.
