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 I still didn’t do as much job searching, but overal it was a busy, but fun week. I got a lot of blogging done and had one day on which I wrote and scheduled 7 diferent blog posts. I wrote most of my Armchair BEA posts this week and I can’t wait to share them with you all, I had so much fun writing them. Only one more to write. And I tried somethign new in a cover reveal post this week, a cover review, basically I write a short review with my thoughts about the cover. I hope this adds a more personal touch to cover reveals posts on my blog and make them more interesting for visitors to read. I would love to hear your thoughts about this!
Another thing that happened this week was, we got a new rat cage. The cage where our rats where in at first actually wasn’t a rat cage and we had metal netting aroudn the whole cage so our rats couldn’t escape the cage. Also it was terrible to clean it. And now we finally bought a new cage, the new cage is almost twice the size of their previous cage and it was really easy to assemble. And the lattice are closer together in this cage, so they can’t escape. The rats seem happy with their new cage so far, although they did have to get used to it at first. Here’s a picture of their old and new cage.
My boyfriend and I started watching Star Wars this week. normally I don’t watch a lot of movies and I never had seen Star Wars before, but my boyfriend wanted to rewatch the series, so I decided to watch it with him and guess what I love it so far! We’ve seen the first two episodes, I do keep asking my boyfriend questions. I usually do that a lot while watchign a movie as I want to understand everything and always think there isn’t enough world building, as my boyfriend had already seen the movies he was able to fill in some gaps.
And I finally realised that all these thoughts I had about sci-fi being boring weren’t true at all. And I added sci-fi as a genre I accept for review to my review policy on my blog, I am looking for some sci-fi recommendations, so if you know a good sci-fi book, please let me know!
So yeah this was a busy and eventfull week, but also a fun week :).

Lou is in the middle of a quarter-life crisis. Fresh out of college, she’s unemployed and unsure of herself. But when she gets the chance to escape to Scotland with her best friend, it could be the answer to her quest for self-discovery. The trip is not at all what she expected, especially when her tour guide turns out to be the dreamy historian Brian, and together they embark on a hunt for information about Isobel Key, a woman accused of witchcraft in the seventeenth century.
They set out to learn the truth of the condemned witch, but Lou isn’t prepared for the knowledge that awaits her. She must face her own demons if she has any hope of righting the wrongs of the past.

An eggplant wails, a ladder breaks, and the guise of civility shatters.
A professor of festival studies, a potato hunter, a deadly career counselor, and a part-time terrorist are struggling to retain their sanity in a magically mundane city. Their carefully laid plans fall apart when they meet Mr. Pearson, an everyman who suspects a conspiracy of evil polygons behind his company’s absurd practices.
Theirs is a world in which people use raw produce and wasted time to alter reality. If it were not for the stringent safety standards on fruits and vegetables, the citizens would live in misery. Most live a life of willful ignorance instead, desperate to avoid facing the threats surrounding them. Festival season is about to begin, but the colorful banners cannot hide the tragic past any longer.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack follows up her trio of hits—Losing It, Faking It, and Finding It—with this thrilling first novel in an explosive series bursting with the Texas flavor, edge, and steamy romance of Friday Night Lights.
In Texas, two things are cherished above all else—football and gossip. My life has always been ruled by both.
Dallas Cole loathes football. That’s what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.
But life doesn’t always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.
Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It’s obliterated.
Dallas doesn’t know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn’t know that Dallas is his new coach’s daughter.
And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.

Alex has big plans for camp this year, starting with making it the best summer ever. Having fun and breaking some rules will get her the payback she wants against her parents and her ex-boyfriend. Because of his disgusting texts, she’s headed to a super strict all-girls school in the fall.
Then she meets Javier and revenge doesn’t seem nearly as important as getting to know the troubled loner determined to keep a low profile at camp. But Alex’s trouble-magnet personality and Javier’s need to stay in the background don’t mix nearly as well as their irresistible chemistry.
With her home life eroding under her feet and her last year of summer camp speeding to a close, Alex wants to make her mark on the world and squeeze every bit of fun out of her time with Javier. Too bad her old plans for revenge turn back on her just in time to ruin everything. Will she lose Javier too?
