The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Please take time to visit Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer if you have not already. The blog is beautiful and she is fantastic!
My anime binge continues, and I have fallen victim to the dreaded reading slump. I recently snagged a few more volumes of a favorite manga that I am enjoying. Whether I will begin posting reviews on these is undecided. I would like to start incorporating more into the blog. I am feeling very indecisive (yeah shocker). Welcoming any feedback or suggestions currently on that thought:) In the great words of Gandalf (AKA Tolkien):
“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien,
Let’s push forward and have a look at this past week on Books, Vertigo and Tea, shall we?
This was a busy week for many of us with the holidays, but I managed to find time to review two titles:
Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 1/2
Manipulated Lives by H.A. Leuschel
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I enjoyed both books immensely. I recommend Queen of Hearts to anyone seeking a fast and fun retelling. Manipulated Lives is a fantastic look into the human psych that I believe many will find great interest in.

I am excited to be hosting a giveaway for 4 signed copies of Dream Waters by Erin A. Jensen this week. (Apologies but this one is restricted to the US). This will continue until 12/11/16. Be sure to stop by and enter here.
I was also nominated for The Mystery Blogger Award by the one and only Jazz @ISwoonOver,FictionalNon-HumanMan. Giving her another shout-out because she always manages to provide a much-needed dose of humor and fun on even the most difficult days. You can check out my response here.
I also “participated” in a read-along for The Untold Tale by J.M. Frey. I am using quotations, because while I managed to post, the actual participation didn’t happen as I had hoped due to a bout of bronchitis. I still encourage you to check out this series.
Looking back, this was a pretty productive week. I managed to complete two titles, several posts and serve up a rather large (probably virus infested dinner) on Thursday. I am marking this one down as a win!
Hah! Seriously though, I am on the mend and hope everyone has had a restful and happy holiday or week!
