Hi dear friends,
The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Reviewer. Time to look back on my week and talk about life events and blog related news.
First things first: Happy Mothers day!!!
Being a mother is the most beautiful but also the most demanding job in the world so we all deserve a special day.
I had some days off work and ended playing taxi driver for my kids! My husband was biking abroad with some friends when the kids had a ton of activities so I was left to chauffeur them everywhere: rock climbing classes, school coach, doctor, theater play etc.
Between drives I tried to read and blog. I am plain exhausted today! But the weather was great and I had fun at my daughter’s theater play.
Many things happened on the blog and on my reading list! Since last Sunday I have reviewed two books but managed to read five books!!! It’s been a long time since it happened.
Here are the books I’ve reviewed (click on the graphic to read the review)
The Chateau is an erotic but truly deserved 4,5 stars!
4,5 Stars for that YA Fantasy Ash Princess (with a 6 stars for the cover!)
I have read The Absolutely True Diary of A Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie for the Banned Books Club (review coming by the end of the month), an ARC of Nicole Williams “Almost Impossible” (hopefully review later next week) and “Letters to the Lost” by Brigid Kemmerer (I can’t recommend it enough! Thank you Raven for your review that made me read it!).
I posted the interview of an author I dreamed interviewing for years now: Tijan. Click on the graphic to read it. She has been so generous in her answers!
For once I also posted a poem. Surprising but when I read Letters to the Lost the hero, Declan was really touched by two lines of a poem. I was intrigued and went looking for it. Here you have it again as I think that Invictus by William Ernest Henley is inspirational and empowering!
I also posted every single day about Suanne Laqueur as she is the first author in the #T4AuthorsChallenge that I chose.
Last but not least here are the memes I did this week (click on the graphic to read):
For I Heart Character my pet was … Abraxos!
And my First Impression Friday was about “Letters to the Lost”
Now next week will be busy as hell as I have to prepare and help Aleatha Romig to take our FB Group over!!!!!!
Then each day post about my second Top 4 Author namely Emma Scott. Plus write and post three reviews and read two ARCs!!!!
OMG I will be so busy but it will be so great!
