Sunday Post. It's Cake Week

Sunday, 3 June 2018

Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviews.
How is everyone doing? How am I doing? I'm still stressed and there has been a lot of crying this week, but I'm trying not to give up everything. For that reason, I decided to cheer up myself and created Cake Week. I confess I quite enjoyed this themed week. I enjoyed it so much that I may do a few other themed weeks. 

What happened in my life this week:

🎂 The video game gods sensed my mood this week and decided to release a few seconds of Spyro gameplay. That put a smile on my face. #releasethedragon
🎂 Must stop picking 500 pages books. Since I'm such a slow reader, I feel like I'm not reading, and that's quite depressing.
🎂 NetGalley feedback ratio is above eighty per cent for the first time in months. How did this happen? *happy dance*
🎂 CAKE WEEK!



LAST WEEK ON THE BLOG
  • I finally reviewed some ARCs! The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green and Deadly Sweet by Lola Dodge. The last review was part of Cake Week. Disclaimer: Do not read Deadly Sweet with an empty stomach. Delicious cake descriptions will make you crave for something sweet and leave you mouth-watering.
  • I joined the #CakeFlavouredBooks Tag. I'm quite proud of this post and I'm not usually proud of my posts. If you love cakes and book and haven't yet joined this tag, you should.

📚 MINI BOOK HAUL 📚


One of my resolutions for this year was to read books out of my comfort zone. So, this week I got All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfot, about a girl that joins a secret society, and Tradition by Brendan Kiely, which talks about rape culture. Thank you NetGalley and Penguin Random House UK for accepting my review requests.

Happy week everyone!

  6. Cake really is the answer sometimes. =)
    My NG ratio is almost back to 80%. I have a ton of NG and EW books to review, but I am getting them. Congrats on getting over that mark. I really liked Tradition. I hope you like it too.

  7. Interesting choices. I read many genres but all fiction and for fun. I still learn things and process perspectives and emotions. I hope you find and enjoy some shorter books!

    I am meticulous about my NG ratio because I always want to be approved! So it's 93% even tho I have 15 things on my shelf. I've read about half of them and have the reviews written just waiting for closer to the release date. Anne - Books of My Heart
