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 relatively well. I had some more energy and I got a bunch of things done. I tried to take it easy and not overdo it, but don’t think I was successful. I had a social event this Saturday and due to me being autistic those always tire me out, so I wanted to make sure I got most things done before then so I could relax afterwards.

On Saturday I visited my mom and her husband and my sister. I hadn’t seen them in a while due to last year being so busy with my diagnosis and such. It was nice to see them again and catch up. It also made me realize how much of myself I’ve always been hiding and now I know I am autistic and can try to be more authentically myself, the visit was a lot more fun. I still was tired afterwards and took a nap, but I felt better than after previous visits as I could be myself more. It does make me sad I only figured out I am autistic now, but better late than never.

Work wise I did some time-sensitive work preparing for a Kickstarter campaign one of my authors will be running starting next week. It was exciting being part of this project as it’s something I haven’t helped with before. I got all the social media messages drafted and then scheduled after the author looked them over and those are all set now. There will be more work for this project in the coming few weeks and I am curious to see how it all goes. Besides that I did some sign up checking and sent out some emails.

What did I read this week?

The Vicar and The RakeTestedBastet

I got bored listening to The Vicar and The Rake so I DNF’d it. It just didn’t really hook me and I wanted more romance and connection between the two main characters instead of only chemistry and lust (of which there was plenty).
Tested is probably my favorite book in this series so far. The trust issue regarding the romance got resolved and I really liked seeing the couple work together and grow closer. Plenty of action and things going on. As well as Matti using more of her magic and learning more about her hammer.
Bastet was a fun second chance romance with some mythology and paranormal aspects. I liked the couple, but would’ve liked to read more about them.

This week I blogged about:

Review: The Fae’s Bride by R.L. Medina

  1. Glad you have now got a diagnosis for your autism, Lola. And yes – it should make a lot of things easier:). I am heartened to see you enjoying the Legacy of Magic series by Lindsay Buroker as I’m just about to start it. Have a great week.

    • There really are a lot of things that are easier now that i know I am autistic, it really made a difference getting the diagnosis. I am really enjoying the Legacy of Magic series, I look forward to hearing what you think of it!

    • I am an extreme introvert as well, so social events will always be exhausting, but it was nice to be more authentically myself and at least not have the additional tiredness from masking.

    • I thought your daughter was younger for some reason. Later diagnosis are getting more common and I think it’s so helpful to understand how my brain works better. Glad to hear it has been helpful for your daughter as well.

    • It really has helped so much getting the diagnosis and I still figure out new things regularly. It’s easy to fall behind with commenting, I feel like I am always behind with that too or with replying.

    • Thanks! Getting the diagnosis has really had a big impact on my life, I only recently started sharing some things on my blog as it was hard to talk about it at first.

  2. It’s incredible how putting a name on something or having a diagnosis can be freeing it seems! I am glad you are more yourself and feel more at ease!

    • Definitely! It has helped so much knowing why my brain works the way it is and having the actual diagnosis was very validating.
