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 pretty busy week. On monday a cover reveal I organized with Lola’s Blog Tours took place and my second Lola’s Advice post went live. I fit in a lot of hours for marketing assistant work this week and got a nice chunk done. I am hoping to finish up the rest of the marketing assistant work next week as the week after that I have 5 cover reveals lined up. I got a new cover reveal open for sign-up this week for Saven Disclosure, the sequel to Saven Deception and it’s such a great cover, I am looking forward to sharing it with everyone.
I also attempted to bake a pie this week, will share a picture next week. Not sure if it’s a succes yet, as at the moment I am writing this post, it’s still cooling down, so I can’t finish and taste it yet. It’s a bannanofee pie and it sounds delicious 🙂
Oh and remember how I mentioned that we cleaned out the rat food and put up a notice at our local supermarket that anyone who wanted it could get the remaining rat food for free? Well someone responded this week and she took the rat food that was still good with her for her own rats. I hope her rats will be happy with the food.

This is my favourite storebought soup. I don’t make soup often myself, I usually prefer to buy a package from the supermarket and it’s so handy for those evenign where I don’t feel like cooking or want a filling late night snack. This soup is suited for vegetarians, is filled with veggies and tastes delicious. I buy soem storebought frnech bread to go with it and have a delicious dinner. What’s your favourite soup?

What does a dusty old secret have to do with peacocks?
Everything, as it turns out. When Amanda is knocked off her skateboard by a rare all-blue peacock, she learns that the species harbors a vital secret she must race to uncover. But before she can unravel the mystery, a startling archaeological discovery turns all of Britain against the detectives and threatens their very existence.
As old enemies gather strength and new adversaries emerge, Amanda finds herself dealing with hysterical teachers, a disappearing mentor, a mysterious poisoner, and a would-be magician. With so much at stake and so little time, the last thing she needs is to fall in love.
I am currently reading the third book and I was excited to see the fourth book pop up on netgalley, even though I read the rest of the books in paperback, I couldn’t resist requesting this book as I really enjoy this series. Actually the whole series is on netgalley! If you’re looking for a fun MG mystery series I would recommend this series. Here’s the link to the first book on netgalley.

When horse trainer Annie Carson rescues a beautiful thoroughbred from a roadside rollover, she knows the horse is lucky to be alive…unlike the driver.

Two deaths in three days is unheard of in the small Olympic Peninsula county, and Annie decides to start sniffing around. She’s confident she can track down a killer…but she may not know how ruthless this killer really is…

Baseball, beer, and a hot boy. Nothing can beat that. Until I meet Mason “Mace” Murphy the next “it” pitcher for the Boston Red Sox and my client. He’s immature, arrogant, sexy as sin, and the last man that’s going to get into my panties. He’s not used to hearing the word no from women, so I’m going to spell it out for him.
N = Not going to happen.
O = Out of your league buddy.
I was hired to cuddle up to the annoying, beautiful athlete, and give prospective advertisers and fans a different view of this hot-shot professional baller.
Only he’s everything I detest in a man all wrapped into a dream package. Baseball player, talented, athletic body, sculpted face, and ass you can bounce quarters off of. Unfortunately, he also believes he’s God’s gift to women, a man-whore, throws money around like it grows on trees, and conceited. The challenge for him, to break down my defenses and get in there. My challenge, avoid hopping in the sack with him at all costs.
Mia Saunders continues her mission to save her comatose father from her dangerous, loan-shark ex-boyfriend. This month, she serves as a high-priced escort to a professional baseball player named Mace Murphy in Boston, MA.
Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will release every month throughout 2015. The stories will feature Mia’s journey as an escort to twelve clients in twelve different locations.
