The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
Had a busy week with two weddings to go to (caught the bouquet at one! haha) so I didn’t have much chance to start on the books and munchies travel edition featurette. But I’ll definitely try to get on that soon. Work has been pretty slow, which is usually nice because that means I have more time for reading!

Not much this week, just the one from Netgalley. I need to get the library soon!
(01) The Perks of Being a Beauty by Manda Collins
The beautiful Miss Amelia Snow is not accustomed to being snubbed by the gentlemen of the ton. But when her mother dies unexpectedly, forcing Amelia to take employment as companion to a wealthy cit’s daughter, she quickly learns to play down her looks or risk losing her position. When her employers, the Smithsons, decide to throw a country house party, she is determined to fade into the background. But how can she when the Smithson’s guest of honor is Lord Quentin Fortescue, the childhood friend who stole her heart?
Younger son, Lord Quentin Fortescue, is far more interested in his host’s cotton mills in the north than he is in courting the man’s dim-witted daughter. But it’s the girl’s companion who makes him look twice. Years ago, Miss Amelia Snowe rejected his proposal without a backward glance. Quentin has molded himself into just the sort of man she’d have wanted back then, but is Amelia still the smug beauty who broke his heart? And can either of them risk their newfound positions to indulge the fiery attraction that burns between them?
This is a cute novella featuring Amelia Snow from The Ugly Duckings Series. I actually already finished this, so expect the review for this sometime this week (:
