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 was a bit meh, it was less busy then earlier weeks so that was good, but I felt tired a lot. I didn’t sleep well for a few days and just felt like I was tired all the time and everything took me longer to do. I finished my marketing assistant work for this month, so the rest of the month will be a bit less busy. I also have a sore throat for a few days, which then disapeared again, so maybe I caught a cold or something. I am feeling fine again now.
Sunday evening Pita her third abces burst and after cleaning it well we started lowering her pain medication and on Thursday we put her back in the cage with the other rats. After being in the cage for only a few minutes she already fell down a short distance in the cage, so that was a bit scary. She is still very weak and doesn’t have as much power and flexibility she used to. So we put her only for little while in the cage and every evening we get her out of the cage and she sleeps in the small carier cage next to our bed as we’re afraid else she might hurt herself at night when we can’t see it. She has lost a lot of weight so we keep giving her yummies and sometimes even forcing her to drink some water as she isn’t eating and drinking well yet. We’re not sure whether the third abces is completely cleasn yet, but we’ll see. For now she’s still not really getting better, we’re worries about her and it’s a struggle eveyr day to get her to eat and drink enough.
And I decided to switch my favicon to a small pony head instead of the creative whim logo, after reading this post on Nose Graze. If you want your own custom made favicon you can make one on this Favicon Generator site. Do you use a favicon on your site?
Today it is my boyfriend’s dad his birthday, so are visiting his parents and eat there. I baked Oatmeal cookies for him and we bought a spoon with his name engraved on it. I hope he likes them!

Random Picture(s) of the Week
The Chocolate Crinkle Cookies I made this week. They looked really cool, but I didn’t add the full amount of sugar to the dough and they didn’t taste as sweet. The taste was slightly bitte rnow due to all the cacao powder. So next time I am halving this recipe and then tweak it until I am happy with the taste.

The Legacy Human (Singularity #1)
by Susan Kaye Quinn
Source: for review
You can find The Legacy Human on Goodreads
Spiritual successor to the bestselling Mindjack trilogy…
When transcending humanity is the prize, winning the Game is all that matters.
Seventeen-year-old Elijah Brighton wants to become an ascender—a post-Singularity human/machine hybrid—after all, they’re smarter, more enlightened, more compassionate, and above all, achingly beautiful. But Eli is a legacy human, preserved and cherished for his unaltered genetic code, just like the rainforest he paints. When a fugue state possesses him and creates great art, Eli miraculously lands a sponsor for the creative Olympics. If he could just master the fugue, he could take the gold and win the right to ascend, bringing everything he’s yearned for within reach… including his beautiful ascender patron. But once Eli arrives at the Games, he finds the ascenders are playing games of their own. Everything he knows about the ascenders and the legacies they keep starts to unravel… until he’s running for his life and wondering who he truly is.
The Legacy Human is the first in a new young adult science fiction series that explores the intersection of mind, body, and soul… and how technology will challenge us to remember what it means to be human.

I cna’t express how excited I am for this book, and look at that pretty cover! I already mentioned it in my 2015 new releases sign-up post when it didn’t even had a title, but now it does and I have a reveiw copy *does happy dance*.
The Ruby Circle (Bloodlines #6)
by Richelle Mead
Source: bought it myself
You can find The Ruby Circle on Goodreads
The epic conclusion to Richelle Mead’s New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series is finally here…
Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.
After their secret romance is exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead’s New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis. Meanwhile, Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world.
I am really excited about this one, although a bit sad as well as it’s the last book in the series. And when I put it on my shelf next to the rets of the series I noticed this one was slightly larger and I am so sad and angry they decided to make this one bigger. The whole series has the same format and matched, besdides this one, which makes me really sad.
