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 don’t know why, but this week was just weird. There where some good moments and some not so good moments. I got a phone call I am through to the next round of the application for a job, so next thuesday I have an interview for this job. And I am already wondering if there will be another round after this.

It was an emotional week, things just didn’t seem to go the way I wanted. And then my boyfriend bought chocolates for me the day after a rough day and that cheered me up a bit.
And I bought an awesome game last week called PixelJunk Monsters, it’s a tower defense game with nice graphics. I finally tried it this week and found out it had a two player option, so I played it together with my boyfriend.

And I am trying another style for my book haul in this post as I just can’t seem to get it right. It won’t show up how it did in blogger and I can’t figure out how I want it to show up now in wordpress.
I also spend quite some time this week visiting other blogs and commenting and it brought me in a good mood. It felt good to see what other bloggers are up to and when commenting on other blogs I really feel part of this community and I wonder why I don’t make time to do this more often, probably because I am usually too busy to make time for it. I also added a widget with a list of awesome blogs to my siderbar, it’s still a work in progress though and I am regulary adding new blogs. And I am sure some great ones aren’t on the list yet.

I also did something new on the blog this week and posted a recipe of Twisted Cinnamon Bread, which I made on Monday and suddenly decided to make a blog post about it. I changed my mind a few times, but in the end decided to take the risk and just post it. I am thinking of posting something non-book related each saturday, so that might be a recipe or a review of something that isn’t a book or something about me. It can be different each week, but I am going to try this and I hope you all like this new content too! Next week I’ll be posting about one of my favourite game genres, Tower Defense!

So yeah it was a bit of a hectic week and next week sounds like it might be even worse. I have to go to the dentist tomorrow to get some of my cavities fixed and I am totally terrified. Then a job interview on Theusday and I just hate job interviews, because I seem so bad at them and always feel like I say the wrong thing. And I really want this job!

    I know what you mean about lacking time to do the fun stuff sometimes. I’d love to spend more time blog browsing and visiting all these goodreads groups but I just can’t seem to find the time! With me it’s ‘I’ll do that next week’ but never do. I’m reducing the amount of review books I’m taking on so I can have time for reading books I’ve bought and downloaded, and trying to organize my online time a bit better. I hope it works!

      I actually took on more and more review books lately to compensate for my financial situation and not being able to buy as many books. But now I’ve got a lot of those to read in time for their blog tour stops and that’s a bit stressfull to.

      I love bloglovin, it’s so handy to use. Unfortunately it’s been already two days since I checked. It’s been a busy few days.

      Thanks Sandy :). And I think the cover of True Colors is really pretty, when I participated in the cover reveal I knew I wanted to read it after seeing the cover (although not only because of the cover ;), but the blurb is good too). Let’s hope this week will be good, although I know tomorrow will be horrible because I have to go to the dentist :(.

    • Lola

      I totally agree and the cover is one of the reasons I want to read the book. I mean it’s so beautifull and it has a great blurb too and was on sale for 0.99$, so yeah I had to buy it.

    • Lola

      I have been getting some great feedback on the recipe posts so far, so I guess the non-book content posts on saturday will stay then :). All this talking about the twisted cinnamon bread makes me want to make it again.
