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 really busy and I worked a lot of hours. I had 5 new tours open for sign-up on Lola’s Blog Tours and I started a trial month as Marketing Assistant for an author. Both of those combined made this a very busy week. I like being busy, but sometimes I am bit too much of a workaholic to know when to stop. One of the problems with working at home and having your own company I guess. I also spend an evening with stomach cramps and another one with a terrible headache.
On friday evening I took a break from work and it was nice to have a free evening, I watched some anime with my boyfriend. We’re currently watching Witch Hunter Robin, I really like the dark and quiet feel of the anime. Saturday was less busy as well, so that really helped me regain my energy and feel ready for the next week!
On Tuesday was Pita’s surgery. I was so tired from standing up early I almost didn’t feel nervous. I was really glad when I got the call she was awake and I could pick her up from the vet again. The surgery went well, but she does have a nasty wound as the tumor had grown a lot. It did bleed a bit, which scared me a lot, but after a quick e-mail to the vet we found out that was actually quite normal. We spend a lot of time with her the rest of the week. She’s such a quiet rat and it’s difficult to figure out if she’s hurting or not. She’s not eating as well as she should, so we’re giving her lots of yummy things, which she does eat.
Concerning cooking and baking, this was a pretty uneventfull week. I didn’t bake anything and for dinner I mostly used recipes I already tried once, the only new thing I tried was making shawarma. It was a bit bland, but the aoli (spanish oil based garlic sauce) compensated for that. I made a vega version for myself and with meat for my boyfriend, it wasn’t really a challenge beside getting the spices right.
And my boyfriend stopped by a shop on his way back from school on friday and came home with lots of spices in big packages! I am so excited to try them all out! They are mostly indian spices as I am still in my indian cooking phase.
And sci-fi month November has started! Yesterday was my first post for this monthly feature, you can vote which sci-fi book you want me to read this month. I am really excited as this is my first time participating in an event like this! All sci-fi month posts will include the sci-fi month banner and have the tag November sci-fi month. I’ll have two sci-fi book reviews and a Lola’s Ramblings posts scheduled for next week!
And this November I am also participating in Blog Ahead. So far I am not really doing well, haven’t written a single post yet. I have lowered my goal to ending with 5 more scheduled posts then I am started, but I still have to compensate for all those posts scheduled for this month.

Menace (Debt Collector #12)
by Susan Kaye Quinn
Source: for review
You can find Menace on Goodreads
THIS IS SEASON TWO OF DEBT COLLECTOR*
Recommended: start with Season One.
*pre-order of the full season available
What’s your life worth on the open market?
A debt collector can tell you precisely.
Wraith has agreed to Gehenna’s first demand, but Moloch’s Cult of Death has a larger, more mysterious mission… and Wraith has to decide how far she’s willing to go to stop it.
Menace is approximately 14,000 words or 56 pages, and is the third of nine episodes in the second season of The Debt Collector serial. This dark and gritty future-noir is about a world where your life-worth is tabulated on the open market and going into debt risks a lot more than your credit rating.
It is recommended that you start with the first season, but each season is a complete story for that debt collector and can serve as an entry point to the series. There are five planned seasons in the Debt Collector series, the first four each from the perspective of a different debt collector with the fifth season bringing all four together.
