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?
Monday was my birthday and my mom came to visit and we went for high tea. It was a bit busy at the place where we had high tea, but the food was yummy. Then when we got back home my boyfriends parents visited as well and brought me some presents. Frankly it was a bit of a busy day, but I had a nice quiet evening and finished my current read.
I got a new request to organize a review opportunity over at Lola’s Blog Tours, if you love fantasy and mythology Young Adult books you might want to check it out: Review Opportunity: Daughter of Isis (Descendants of Isis #1) by Kelsey Ketch. There’s also a new cover reveal open for sign-up and a new book blitz.
I also got some work done in advance, which mostly involved creating rafflecopter giveaways for upcoming tours, working on some html media kits and drafting the one year anniversary post for Lola’s Blog Tours. I can’t believe it’s almost a year ago that I started Lola’s Blog Tours, but more about that in two weeks from now. I also have a giveaway planned here on Lola’s Reviews, but more about that later ;).
Beside that my boyfriend and I continued watching Star Trek Voyager, but didn’t watched as many episodes as the past few weeks. I tried out one new recipe this week namely corn soup. It was nice, but it didn’t look anything like the picture as I didn’t blend it or added Almond milk. I also baked cookies twice this week as I was really in the mood for cookies, first peanut butter cookies and then later in the week Lemon Crinkle Cookies I also made two weeks ago.
I’ve gotten a bit more reading done this week, then in the previous weeks.
Random Picture of the Week:
Birthday presents! Hammocks for the rats, thermos can and an Alpacha pluchie (named Richard). I got the hammocks and the thermos can from my mom and a pair of trousers and a water bottle that aren’t on the picture as I got them earlier already. It was fun to rearrange the rats cage with the new hammocks.
I got the Alpacha pluchie from my sister and I love it! The fur is so pluche and it joined the collection of pluchie’s on my bed :).

Someone Like You

You can’t program love…or can you?
Kayleigh Renshaw has come up with the idea for a brilliant “compatibility app,” a new kind of matchmaking software. All she needs is a programmer to help her bring the idea to market…and she knows exactly who she wants. But Niall Walsh—a code whiz and her former best friend—has been avoiding her since he returned from Afghanistan. In spite of their history, and some sparks that go beyond friendship, he’s proving reluctant…. Is it her, or is something darker holding him back?

Follow (Social Media #1)

You can find Follow on Goodreads
I fuck them. I use them. I pay them off. I find another. My demands are never denied. My contracts are always signed. They submit to me. Willingly. Completely. Temporarily. This is how it’s always been.
Until I saw that filthy tweet.
@VaughnAsher My bare pussy. Your tongue. #ThingsIThinkAboutToGetOff
“FilthyBlueBird” thinks she can tease me with hashtags and then hide behind a Twitter handle? She thinks I wouldn’t be more than happy to #RockHerFilthyWorld? She’s wrong.
Her online fantasy is about to collide with her public reality, and it’s about to happen… now.
The Secrets of the Cats: A world of Adventure for Fate Core
by Richard Bellingham
Source: pay what you want on Drive Thru RPG
Cats are magical; cats understand sacrifice and the power of names. A decapitated mouse left on the doorstep or pillow is a powerful ward, and a spell wailed by the cat chorus confers even greater protection. When evil is on the rise and the safety of the neighbourhood is at stake the Parliament of Cats is there to stand firm against the darkness.
Take Silver Ford, for example, a sleepy tourist town near a played-out old silver mine. When kids messing around in the mine accidentally rouse an ancient evil on All Hallows’ Eve, the secret and magical cats of the neighbourhood are the only thing protecting their special people from the things that go bump in the night.
This 50 page Fate Core adventure provides everything you need to play from character generation to plot and setting ideas, including a new feline magic system based on true names and sacrifices made to protect your human Burdens.
The Secrets of Cats. Sharpen your claws and prepare to defend your territory!

In the aftermath of a brutal tragedy, Jason and Passion are on the run. Marcus is lost beyond reach, and The Hold is in shambles. If that weren’t enough, Olivia Black has been taken by the CAMFers to be used as Dr. Fineman’s personal lab rat in his merciless quest to uncover the mysteries of Psyche Sans Soma once and for all. But only if he can break her.
They are scattered.
They are devastated.
They are ruined.
Their only hope is Olivia’s stubborn determination to thwart her captors and unlock the secrets of her ghost hand before Dr. Fineman can. Will she finally find the strength within herself to embrace the full power of her PSS?
And will it even matter if Marcus has already betrayed her?
