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 was a busy week, I suddenly got a lot of request for tours over at Lola’s Blog Tours, so I’ve been happily working on those. So far 3 new tours went open for sign-up this week and I am working on more! It felt good to be working again. There’s a new blog tour, a book blitz and an cover reveal open for sign-up.
Beside that not much happened this week, it was still pretty warm. I played some games and got a bit of reading done. I received a copy for review of a book I am really looking forward to reading it, especially after reading a disapointing 2 star book.
On friday we went to The Hague, we bought some groceries in an asian supermarket there. There is a really big asian supermarket in The hague, close to the China town there and it’s so much fun to walk around and see things you don’t normally see in a supermarket. We even bought a rettich as long as my boyfriends forearm for only an euro (see picture below). We had no idea what to do with it, so when we got home my boyfriend had to google some recipes.
Then we went to grab some tea and cheesecake at the best cheesecake shop in the Netherlands (as far as I know). I had a cheesecake with orange and my boyfriend went for the Death by Chocolate cake. Then we walked around thecity a bit more and bought some cupcakes for home, there’s this shop that always had the best cupcakes, but their quality seem to have diminished a bit :(. So all in all we had a fun day, it was really warm though so we where pretty tired once we got back. It was nice to have a day filled with fun though after such a busy week.
Random Picture of the Week:
This is smarties in a tea box for Lady Grey Tea (delicious tea btw). So that box was empty and I figured it should be big enough for a rat, they sorta seem okay with sitting in it for a bit and they are so adorable with their head sticking out of the box. They don’t sit still for long though.
Games I played this week:
– Robocraft by Freejam.
It’s a game where you build your own robot and then play capture the hill against another team or you can just destroy all the robots of the other team, that works too. It’s still in beta. It is free to play, but you level up faster if you pay, I am not paying for it and so far it’s fun. It’s a bit simple so far and basically when you get into a higher tier you can buy higher tier leveled weapons, blocks etc and you get stronger. You don’t really unlock anything different after a while, but the higher tier equipment does look different then the lower tier upgrades. Actually the most fun thing is that you build awesome looking robots (which probably don’t do that wel in battle) and you can play it multiplayer. You can invite friends to your platoon and then when you click battle the game makes sure you’re all in the same team in the same battle. Below is a picture of the Robo I am currently playing with, it’s a sniper robo with wheels.
