Hi dear friends,
It is Sunday already and for what’s become our traditional weekly chit-chat for months now.
I love these Sunday Post because as they are kindly hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedbookreviewer I get to blog hop to many of you posts and see what’s happened in your life even if I had a busy week (like this week) and could not hop to my content!
So let’s get this conversation started right?
In my private life
As I had announced February will be a very very busy month on the work front! This week I could not work part time as I am supposed to and had to commute every day. We have a hoge project at work and we are in the process of selecting vendors. The project managers planned meetings with experts to meet the vendors and that’s when I attended three days in a row, ending after 6 PM at work and being back home past 8 PM. When you know that I wake before 5 AM I was just beat!
No time to blog hop even on my work day (or I had to do it at lunch time) and my commenting back was way late! Like three to four days later!
I was lucky I had planned for this craziness and scheduled my posts till February 16th (well most of them).
So it was an exhausting week but very interesting too! I love meeting people from other horizons and I got to speak English with them.
I met someone coming from Dublin and asked him if he really was Irish because he had nearly no accent LOL.
That’s when I learned that Irish people from Dublin nearly don’t understand people from Cork or people from the North of Ireland either. See? Even in a work meeting I get people to chat about something else 😀
Yesterday was also busy as my daughter is in her last year of high school and we visited a campus! I was feeling all nostalgic sitting in these big auditoriums and listening to the university dean talk about how their university was the best and would help morph my daughter into en even more educated and better people!
Seriously the education system has changed so much since my time! Now we get majors and minors!!!!! Just like US.
For my US friends here before we didn’t have a choice. We chose a field of study and all our classes were mandatory and chosen for us. Sometimes you could choose a sub field but not make it taylor made with minors like it happens in th US!
Even now she can study to become a vet and minor in art!!!!! That’s totally revolutionary for us.
It got just real tense as my daughter and hubs went to bicker hard about her staying in a dorm while she could drive or take the train every day as it’s not that far. As they are both stubborn and hot headed I was the middle woman, once again…
But I know everything will get smoothed out …eventually.
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
Only one review this week but I’ve read and scheduled three other ones (Wicked Saint by Emily A Duncan; The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros (yes I got the ARC) and Becoming by Michelle Obama (review will be published tomorrow)).
Back to my review I loved Slayer by Kiersten White!!!! It’s different from her other books more playful somehow but I had a fantastic time reading it.
Monday was about our books by favorite black authors and I chose ….Michelle Obama!
On the top 5 Tuesday I had to think really hard because the whole month is about Potter Houses!!! I am so bad at these kind of things. And my kid was mean because she refused to help me out!
Now we get to speak about my main event for February the Love and Romance Celebration!
I am so so so happy with all the authors and bloggers who answered my call as many published somthing personal or new just for this event. If you didn’t have a look already here is the day! Pushy? Who? Me? Noooooo! Just over enthusiastic 😀
On Sunday Tanya “Girl Plus Books” talked about her favorite romantic songs
On Monday Aleatha Romig wrote a love letter from Nox demetri to Alexandria Collins. Just for this event!!!!
On Tuesday our fellow blogger Alexandra Wolfe shared the song she fell in love with as a kid!
On Wednesday romance author Leylah Attar gave me a scoop!!!!!! Quotes from her WIP to be published this summer! No one has no idea what the book is about so I felt really blessed! And she was so generous to add a 14 USD Gift Card (giveaway closed now…)
On Tuesday this was a very emotional post for me. Trisy “Bobo’s Book Bank” went out of her comfort zone and wrote a post about her wedding. For one day the blogger morphed into author. Thanks for sharing with us Trisy! Stay strong girl.
And yesterday it was my partner in crime on the Facebook group Angy from “Collectors of Book Boyfriends” who talked about where love is.
Emma Scott will be on the blog later today!!!
See the week was really busy and for me really great!
As I had no real time to hop I can’t share any of your posts here below but if you are proud of one of your posts this week, please leave a link and I will link to it next Sunday!
Now do tell me all about your week please and I’ll do my best to comment back later today and tomorrow.
Thanks for reading and have a great Sunday!
