sunday post

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 another pretty full and busy week. I sent out three media kits for events that are starting/ running next week and I fit in some extra assistant work. I also had a few nights I slept less good, which put a bit of a damper on things.

I went lunching with my mom this week, which was fun. We had a good lunch (bagels as usual) and did a bit of shopping. She also made two adorable crocheted rats for me, one of which now has a place on my desk.

Oh and I finally fixed the reply to your comments thing. I thought I had set it so the default would no longer be set to receive a reply to your comments as that isn’t allowed under GDPR rules, but seems it didn’t go quite right (or actually the settings menu was confusing and I should’ve double checked the settings worked correctly). A reader pointed it out, so now i have fixed it so the default is to not subscribe to anything, but you can click to receive e-mail about new comments or replies to your comments only.

What did I read this week?


I finished reading two great books this week, both 4 stars. Blinded was another great read in this series, with some nice ties to previous books. Fallout was a great sequel, although it took me a bit of time to get back in the world, once I was there I really enjoyed the book. It’s a bit of a slow paced read, but I love seeing all the build-up and guessing how things will play out.

What did I cook for dinner this week?

This week I blogged about:

Review: Cat Magic by Lydia Sherrer
Review: Minder Rising by Carol Van Natta

To See The SunHope SavedPeace Force

Seems I was in a sci-fi mood as I got three new sci-fi books this week. To See the Sun I’ve been curious about since I first heard of the book and I was excited to see it pop up on Netgalley and got accepted for a copy. Yay! Hope Saved and Peace Force sounded promising and both were only 99 cents.

What kind of books are you in the mood for lately?

  1. Yes, that does sound like a busy, but good week with a visit for lunch and work done. I’ve had a few restless nights because our weather suddenly got humid and warm so I have to get used to it.
    Yes, you were in a sci-fi mood. I’ve definitely been guilty of book purchasing or accepting reviews for my mood unless I catch a sale on one that’s been on my wish list. Lately, my mood seems to be all over the place which is frustrating when I’m trying to decide what to read next.

    Have a great week, Lola!

    • It was a good busy week. Yeah with the warm weather it can be hard to sleep well at times.

      I am glad my mood has been pretty easy to work with for a chance. I’ve been reading lots of sci-fi and books I got for review. It’s difficult when you can’t decide what to read.

  2. Someones busy weeks are good, Sorry you didn’t get a good sleep, I get cranky when I don’t have a good nights sleep but i haven’t had one in 13 years so I am always cranky! 😉

    For the GDPR rules, I think I need to change the linky we use because it has it on their website but I am not sure people know from out side.

    Hope this week is awesome for you, Lola! Happy Reading! ox

    • I don’t do well with less sleep, so I had to resort to a few naps this week, but hopefully starting next week I’ll get more sleep again.

    • I actually really like the whole idea behind GDPR and I think it’s a good thing, I just wish it all had been a bit clearer form the start what you have to do as site/ blog to be complaint as now there was so much conflicting and confusing information.

  3. It sounds as though you have had a busy, productive week. The business with GDPR is one massive headache – and I’m not sure those that are being targetted will end up being restrained, anyway… Oh well. The sci fi reads look fun and I hope you have a good week and get more sleep.

    • Who knows. I think the idea behind it is a good one. It will take time to see how it plays out in the long run. I hope to get through a few more sci-fi reads this month 🙂

    • They really turned out awesome and they are so cute. I’ll try to make a picture of them this week and will share it next week in my Sunday Post.

  4. Glad it was a good week! Hope saved looks pretty good- I’m on kind of a sci-fi kick too lately. Hope they’re good!

    Yay for the comments thing! The GDPR stuff is so confusing at times…

    • I have read some great sci-fi reads lately and I hope the new ones I got this week are good too.

      The GDPR stuff sure can be confusing.

    • It was a bit time intensive to figure everything out surrounding the GDPR. I think I have most things set up correctly now.

  5. Bagels, yum! Shopping is fun too 🙂 Glad you read two great books! I feel like I really haven’t been in much of a sci-fi mood this year. Bit of a problem since one of my upcoming ARCs is sci-fi lol. Hopefully I’ll at least be in the right mood for that one soon! Hope you enjoy your new books 🙂

    • It was a great lunch and the shopping was fun too. I feel like I have been reading a lot of sci-fi and less contemporary romance this year. It is good timing for that sci-fi ARC I got, I hope to read it soon. I hope you’ll be in the right mood for your upcoming ARC soon.
