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?

As predicted this week started off with me feeling pretty tired and low on energy after overdoing it a bit last week, luckily it only lasted a few days. After that I was feeling better and still got a lot done this week. I made a slight adjustment to my routine so I go through my morning a bit faster and have more time in the afternoon to get things done, which seems to work well so far, let’s hope I can keep it up.

Then Friday I woke up with so much energy and I spent a big chunk of that day doing a bunch of cleaning and de-dusting around the house, which felt very productive. As well as I got some other tasks and some work done and still had time left for reading and gaming too. Then ofcourse Saturday I woke up feeling really low on energy again, but I had expected that and it was nice to have had such a good day.

I also got some work tasks done. The Kickstarter I helped with for one of my authors started this week and got already funded, which was fun to see. Besides that I did a bit of work on an upcoming tour as I just received the materials for that. I also made a start on doing my taxes for last year.

What did I read this week?

The Framed Women of Ardemore HouseBehind the FrameBogs, Brews and BansheesThe Library Attic Attack

The Framed Women of Ardemore House was a great read. I really enjoyed the mystery which had plenty of progression as well as some nice twists and turns. And the main character was autistic, which was fun to read about.
Behind the Frame was also really good. It had everything I look for in a cozy mystery. The mystery was a good one, I liked the small town setting and enjoyed reading about Savannah and her two sisters. Even the romance was well done and very sweet.
Sadly Bogs, Brews and Banshees was a DNF. I really wanted to like it, but it just didn’t grip me. I didn’t like reading about the main character and I didn’t care about the mystery. The paranormal aspect was just some small hints and strange happenings so far and wasn’t really interesting either yet.
The Library Attic Attack was a fun read, but it was really short and lacked the depth and engagement a longer book has. Still I am glad I read it as part of this series.

This week I blogged about:

Review: Festive Drinks and Season’s Hijinks by Laura Greenwood

  1. After an active day, one does need a day of less stress. I’m still recovering from all the walking from a trip to the west coast the other day. Have a good week.

    • The day of rest after the active day was definitely necessary. I hope your walking trip was a fun one and you’re enjoying your rest now afterwards.

    • This is the first book by Ellery Adams that I tried and I enjoyed it, hope to pick up the next books in the series soon.

  2. The Secret, Book and Scone Society by Ellery Adams the one series by her I haven’t ready yet but need too! That is awesome the kickstarter got funded so quickly.

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    • I really enjoyed this book and hope to pick up future books in the series yet. I might check out her other series too after this.

    • It was such a shame to have so good a day and then be so tired the next day. Sorry to hear that happens to you too. I definitely hope for more high energy days soon.

    • This week went less smoothly, but the new tweak in my routine keeps working mostly. I really enjoyed Framed Women and am glad you recommended it to me.

  3. Sophia like the Framed Women. Life is a process of tweaking and improving your routines on a continual basis whether one is autistic or not. Although some people aren’t like that, but I am always wanting to improve my routines.

    • Sophia is the one who recommend Framed Women to me, it was really good :). Yeah I like trying to improve my routines, as that is one area I can usually make some good improvements as I can easily stick to them due to being autistic. I do think routines and tweaking them can be helpful for anyone for sure.

    • The energy fluctuations are a pain, but I am really happy I had that one productive day. It was nice to see the Kickstarter get funded so quickly.

  4. What good news about the Kickstarter:)). And yes… having an active day followed by a day with far less energy sounds all too familiar – though I think changing the rhythm of your daily pattern may well be a bit step forward. I hope the coming week is a good one, Lola:).

    • Sorry to hear that theme of an active day followed by a low energy one is familiar for you as well. It was good to see the Kickstarter get funded so quickly. And I think the change in rhythm will work out well.
