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 week started off bad, but gradually improved. It started with my dentist visit on monday and it was horrible and I was so nervous. And my mouth stayed numb almost 5 hours this time, but at least I didn’t feel anything. Also while I still can’t eat with my right side (cavities got fixed there a few weeks ago), my left side was done this week and I can already eat there again. And when I walked out of the dentist office and made my appointment for over half a year I was so happy. A half year no dentist.
I have a new tour I am organizing over at Lola’s Blog Tours. My first tour on Lola’s Blog Tours was Destiny (Destiny #1) by Cindy Ray Hale back in November and I am now organizing the tour for the second book Synchrony (Destiny #2) by Cindy Ray Hale. It makes me realize how much Lola’s Blog Tours have grown and changed in those few months and I hope it continues to grow!
I got some reading done this week and decided to not read my review book for the Joe 2 tour, but instead I read book 2 and 3 in the Nadia Stafford series back to back. I just needed to read something I was in the mood for, for the last two months I’ve been reading books with deadlines back to back and I just had to read a non-deadline book.
I already got quite some review blog tour stops scheduled for April and May, so the reading for deadline probably starts soon again, but they are all books I am really looking forward to reading.
On the blog it was really quiet this week, only 3 posts instead of 6. And every time that happens I feel a little bit bad. I always try to have a post every day, but some weeks it just doesn’t work out. Next week will be quiet too. I will post my review of the two Nadia Stafford series books I read and I have a great posts about slow building romances scheduled for monday, I really enjoyed writing that one!
Next week in my mom’s wedding, so I’ll be travelling to the other side of the country to be there. My mom has been pretty secretive about what she’s wearing, so I am really curious. I got a pretty new dress for the wedding and I am looking forward to finally wearing it :). btw the link goes to the page on the shop where I bought the dress.
This week I posted about:
– Book Blitz: Upside Down by Lia Riley
– Blog Tour: Joe 2
– How to make neat html posts
What to expect next week on the blog:
– About Me: Slow building romances
– Review: Made to be Broken (Nadia Stafford #2) by Kelley Armstrong
– Review: Wild Justice (Nadia Stafford #3) by Kelley Armstrong
I only got one new book this week, I really should have weeks like this more often.

Ugh, dentists. I’m scared rigid of the dentist drill and haven’t been for a few years now though I really do need to get some things repaired. I’m also hoping for a few quiet book hauls while I get my teeth into the tbrs on my Kobo. In 4 days I have got through 41 books so that is a good start. Most were under 70 pages so I’ll need more time to deal with the bigger books!

I didn’t went for about 1.5 years and then when I did go I had about 11 cavities in 7 different teeth. So glad it’s fixed now. I guess that will teach me to go to the dentist every half year.
And reading 41 books in 4 days is crazy :O, that’s a lot even if they are small books.
Ooooh, dentist ! (shivers) Congrats on your mother’s wedding and your first blog tour ! The cover of Destiny is beautiful. Have a great week 🙂

Yeah glad those dentist visits are over now. And actually my first blog tour was back in November and I am now organizing a tour for the second book in the series, it made me realize how far I’ve come in such a short time already! And I agree the covers for the Destiny series are beautifull 🙂
I have had the Brightest Kind of Darkness series on my TBR list for as long as I’ve had a TBR list. I think I have book 1 floating around someone. YAY for no more dentist visits for a while! Have a great week!

I once got Brightest Kind of Darkness for review when I was still a co-blogger over at K-Books, seems so long ago. I really loved the first 2 books in that series and I am glad to have gotten the third book for review :). It will probably be my next read.
Have fun at your mom’s wedding and OMG I love that dress! I am very fond of black but the red trim is makes it so cute and the bow! I love that style. Have you ever done on the website ModClothes. They have vintage like clothes and super cute dresses. A little expensive but the sales are great.
So glad you are finished with the dentist for now. I hate the dentist lol
I’m not a fan a slow weeks either but they happen every once in a while, but I always think it could be worse I could have no posts for a week. (just the thought made me panic) 😉
Have a great week!!!

I don’t wear a lot of dresses, but I fell in love with this one when I first saw it. I love the vintage style and indeed the red trim and bow really add something to the dress :). I’ll check out that website you mentioned, although at the moment I really don’t have money for new dresses, but it’s always handy to keep an eye on sales.
Yeah I hate the dentist and I can’t believe how happy I was monday when I returned from my visit. I spend a lot of the day lounching around in my PJ’s and just relaxing.
I always try to convince myself not having a post on a day isn’t a bad thing, but I still feel bad. After next week, it probably will pick up again. And I already have 4 posts scheduled for next week, so that’s at least one more than this week 😉
I am dreading going to the dentist next month. My kids hate it too, and soon my son will son will get his braces. Enjoy the week ahead.

I am happy I never had to get braces. Good luck at the dentist next month! I hope you have a great weekend!
I think I must be one of the few people who enjoy going to the dentist, even though I had so many appointments, especially the last few years. Anyways, otherwise it looks like you had a good week 🙂

I don’t think I ever heard someone say that they enjoy going to dentist, can I ask why? I think my fear for the dentist comes in part from my mom, who was always afraid for the dentist and I think I picked that up as a child. And yeah it was a good week beside that :), I am so happy to have had some time to get some non-deadline reading done.
I am terrified of the dentist and takes meds to go. My dentist even does my cleaning for me instead of the hygienist. LOL I hope this week is better for you, and congrats on another tour 🙂

yeah usually my dentist also does the cleaning, but this time there was a lot to get cleaned, so I had to go to the hygienist as well. Ah well I am glad that’s all over now. Thanks for stopping by :).
Glad to hear the week picked up as it went! And aws congrats to the mama! Hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding 🙂

Thanks Anna, I hope the wedding will be fun :).
I’ve bookmarked your post on html – brilliant for a novice like me. Lola, the dress is gorgeous, I love it! Have you got it in black or red? I’d probably prefer the black one but that’s only me. Enjoy the wedding – how are your travelling, car or train?
Have a great week and Happy Reading.

Aww thanks :). I hope the html post is helpfull to you. html can be so overwhelming when you are just starting learning about it. If you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them.
I got the black one, I also liked the red one, but it’s a bit too much red for one dress. And I usually prefer black and I like the little red trimms on the black dress. We will be traveling by train, I don’t have my driver’s license and I actually enjoyed traveling by train, gives me lots of time to read as well :).
I pretty much never want to go to the dentist again, it’s about my least favorite thing to do. Ugh. Anyway glad the blog tours are going well. Have a great week.
I totally share your sentiment, but on the other hand if I never go my teeth will probably rot out of mouth eventually. So I guess it’s nessecary, I am going to try and go for my control appointment every half year and hope I don’t get as many caviteis again as I did this time. Thanks for stopping by!
Have fun at the wedding!! And no need to feel guilty on the quiet weeks… it’s very good to recharge. xo
Thanks Joanne :).
And considering those quiet weeks, they still bother me a bit, but indeed it’s good to recharge sometimes.
Yikes, sounds like you had a rough time at the dentist. Thankfully it’s all done now.
That dress is fab, I love vintage style dresses. Hope you have a great time at the wedding 🙂

Yeah I am glad it’s over now.
Thanks :). I love this dress, it’s so beautifull! And I am really looking forward to wearing it!
I had a dentist appointment last Friday (I have to be completely put out like it’s surgery) because I’m so scared of the pain so I know where you’re coming from. I’m glad your procedure went well 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post!

The weird thing is that I always get an anesthesia, so I don’t feel the pain, but I still am terrfied of going there, so I don’t think it’s the pain I am scared for. I usually blame it on me being a contorl freak and I hate not having control.
