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 went pretty well. I tried to take it a bit easier like last week, but the week ended up fuller than planned. I visited a nearby city with my boyfriend and we had lunch at a shop that sells panini’s and tosti’s. And we found a small Japanese store where we bought some good onigiri (rice balls) and some delicious mochi (rice cake with red bean filling).

And I baked some cookies again, after a stressful phone call, I needed to do something relaxing. This time I made my chunky cookies with pecans and chocolate. They were delicious, I again added some red beet powder in it and they look very fun with the bright red coloring.

Work wise I had a decent week. Two tours I organized are still running. It’s been a bit quiet with new tour work, but I had some extra assistant work for a new author to help with Goodreads that I got done. As well as a new author for book formatting, I am really enjoying the book formatting and hope I can get some more clients for that. So at least that kept me busy as well as some assistant work for my authors.

What did I read this week?

Pets in Space 8Any Witch WayNotes for Neuro Navigators

I finished multiple stories in pets in Space 8 this week: Devil in the Details by JC Hay and Shattered Echoes by Carysa Locke. Both were by authors I already knew and both were great. I am reading The Alien’s Falconer now by Skye MacKinnon and Arizona Tape and after that I’ve read all the stories by authors I already knew from this anthology.

Any Witch Way was the third book in that series and I listened to the first 3 books in quick succession. It’s a fun series so far.

I also finished a non-fiction book Notes for Neuro Navigators and it was awesome. I can definitely recommend this one if you want to know more about neurodivergence and how to help neurodivergent people. Lots of great tips and information in this one.

This week I blogged about:

Review: Camp QUILTBAG by Nicole Melleby and A.J. Sass
Review: The Invisible Bright by Mindi Briar
Review: Nymph’s Storm by Laura Greenwood and Arizona Tape

  1. Cookies sounds amazing! We have a little Japanese market area about half hour from my house, I have always wanted to go with all the crazy lately, I have wanted to try the mochi.

    I hope you have a great week, Lola! Happy Reading!

    Sounds like a fun outing for lunch and a visit to the Japanese shop. Your cookies sound delish and that’s a great way to respond to stress. Good that your formatting work is enjoyable and hopefully will pick up soon. Yay for all the reading you got done, too.

    Have a good week, Lola!

    • The lunch and visit to the Japanese shop was fun. And I liked I could use baking as stress relief. I hope to pick up some more clients for formatting soon as I enjoy the work.

  3. Oh those cookies sound really good. I’m glad you had a good week. I’ve had mochi ice cream but haven’t had it with the bean paste. The mochi dough wrapped around ice cream was really good though.

    • I really like baking, but cookies are almost the only thing I like to bake and am good at. I do agree that nothing beats homemade cookies.
