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?

I feel like I am slowly getting a little bit more energy, which has been great, but I still have to be really careful about not doing too much. I had to visit the dentist this week, which was stressful as usual. It was a check-up/ cleaning visit, luckily I had no cavities. Now that I know I am autistic at least I understand why dentist visits are so stressful, as there is so much sensory discomfort. I made sure to make my calendar empty for afterwards so I could just relax afterwards, which has been helpful.

Work wise I did some assistant work, sent out invoices for January work and I put a new review opportunity live for a women’s fiction book. I checked the sign ups for the new review opportunity later in the week and got the emails send out for it.

I scheduled a bunch of review posts on my blog this week for the upcoming month or so as I was running out of scheduled posts and like to schedule them in batches. I am also trying to do more blog visiting lately, which has been fun, just difficult sometimes to find the right timing for it.

What did I read this week?

The Broken BridgeBetrayed

The Broken Bridge was a fun cozy mystery where the main character works at a garden center and there’s a hiking trail nearby, when a hiker goes missing she gets involved in the investigation. It took me some to get into it and I had a few issues with it, but I enjoyed it enough to continue the series. And I liked how the main character actually ruled out suspects during the investigation.
I am a big fan of Lindsay Buroker’s books and finished the second book in the Legacy of Magic series this week, Betrayed. It was a good read with plenty of action and banter. I just hope the main character will make up her mind about trusting the love interest soon. I can really recommend this series if you like urban fantasy, although I recommend starting with the Death Before Dragons series as this is a spin-off of that one.

    • The last time I didn’t go to the dentist for a while I ended up with 7 cavities, which was horrible to get fixed, so I make myself make the next appointment every time I visit so I can’t as easily decide not to go. I totally agree that they’re stressful and expensive.

  1. Love the cover of The Broken Bridge. Glad you enjoyed your books this week. I can definitely see why the dentist would be a sensory problem! I need to go back to mine. I had an issue they wanted me to go see a specialist for, but I just haven’t had time. Not sure when I will till summer as I hate taking time off work. Have a good week!

    • I enjoyed The Broken Bridge and plan to continue the series. Sorry to hear you have to go back to your dentist for a specialist, I can see why you prefer not to take time off work. Maybe it can wait till summer?

    • I am glad I got the dentist visit over with and that i didn’t have any cavities. I never want to go to the dentist either, so I understand your reluctance to go.

  2. My daughter is going through reevaluating things having also just found out she is autistic. I always enjoyed the dentist as a child as I never had any cavities. It wasn’t fun or anything but I didn’t mind it. You are doing well as you figure out how to balance and handle things.

    • I think that going through and reevaluating things is a common stage when finding out you’re autistic. I still encounter things or memories that I can suddenly see in a different light. I hope your daughter is doing well. That’s good you didn’t mind going to the dentist.

    • It sure is a relief to have the dentist visit over for a while and no cavities. I hope your dental cleaning next month goes well, I can totally understand you having some stress about it till it’s over.
