Welcome back to the Sunday Post! Sit back, kick up your feet, and relax!
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.

I cannot believe that we are already at Spring Forward. I never do well at this time of year. My body is more attuned to Fall back and I wish we could stay at that time all year. I heard Florida was going to vote to stay in Spring forward.
It’s not everyday that I can say this but there was some drama for me this week concerning the house. We went to drop off some fans and the chandeliers because the electrician was there. (So excited that we’re at this point btw.) So we toured the house to look around and noticed that the laundry room was not finished. In fact, they had painted the trim white instead of staining it like the rest of the house. Also, they had not even finished painting the walls. All this was supposed to be done two weeks ago. It’s like they knew they made a mistake and just left it like that. I was livid. Further inspection of the house also led to shoddy areas that they had not completely covered with paint either. There was also a wall in the guest bathroom above the shower that was not completed as well; you could still see the insulation. After contacting our contractor, who said the specs for the laundry room was like they had done (we did not authorize that), we met with him the next day.
Let me just say I feel completely better after the meeting. He was already replacing the trim in the laundry room and wasn’t aware of the missing wall in the guest bathroom. He said he was on it. (FYI in my opinion, he should have been aware of the work that was being done a long time ago.) There’s my drama for the year. LOL.
Other than that, we have lights now and it looks really pretty inside. Cabinet door knobs are also installed and I’m giddy with excitement. Soon…soon.
A Tokyo Romance is a step away from what I normally read, being a memoir and all, but I find it fascinating so far. As for Cold-Hearted Rake, I went back to book 1 to really get to know the Ravenel’s. Just so I can be ready for West’s book that will be coming out next. 🙂
Thanks to Penguin First to Read for Wedding Cake Crumble. (Coincidentally, A Tokyo Romance is also from Penguin First to Read) and thanks to Seventh Street Books for Trial on Mount Koya, I love this series.
I’m so proud of myself for being ahead on my ARC reading that I treated myself to more books!
With all my hobby start and stops, I’ve really taken to doodling and drawing (it’s in my blood-more on that history later 😉 ) I find it relaxing and I’ve been doing it almost every day. My husband asked me why I kept this skill a secret. Really? I didn’t even know I had it. Personally, I don’t think I have that much skill. Anywho, I plan on writing a post on what I’ve been doing, eventually.
On Monday, I posted mini reviews for Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues and The Pearl Thief. I’m still enjoying Angel’s adventures as a Zombie. 🙂 Check it out here.
