Hi dear friends,
Another week went by and we already are Sunday! Time to have our weekly recap!
As usual I am linking to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedbookreviewer
In my private life first
I am back at work and …having a hard time. That’s not that I have very long hours more that I don’t know how I will do all the things that I am supposed to do!
This song is the perfect match for the mood of waking up after YALC wonders and getting back to work 😉
After being overwhelmed I decided not to wallow on it but begin with a list of everything and sorting the “urgent and important” to the “non urgent and non important”.
Second step will also be counting my blessings as I think I focused long enough on what’s not so bright and completely forgot that I am privileged on this earth!
I already feel better having written this 😀
Not much happened this week except that I won a 100 USD giveaway in books to choose at Book Depository thanks to @wonderdame_bookmarks !! See when I spoke about blessings?
So time to shake the gloom and spread the glitter, especially as my birthday will be next week!
Other happy news: I found a new home for many of my babies alias books!
Many speak of unhauling and I wanted to do it but not everyone read in English in my country and libraries where not interested! Sending them for free with only shipping costs would not have been interesting for the buyer either due to shipping costs.
The good news is the Red Cross was interested for our refugees! I went yesterday to a migrant shelter which owns a library and they were really happy to get my books! Not all migrants speak French but most speak English so it was the perfect match. As we know books help us evade and if they can help these poor people to evade reality for some hours I think this is a very good deed!
On the blog (click on the graphic to read the post)
I read and reviewed three books this year with one of them being phenomenal and a direct hit to my Bests of 2019! I am talking of Birthday by Meredith Russo! I read other books too but you’ll have to wait for next week to read the review of the best romcom ever! 😀
I tried to get back to business on the blog while deciding that I will probably post four times a week not seven times a week, promo excluded!
On Monday Calendar Girls asked us to choose ONE book for 2019 (our best so far). AS IF I could choose only one LOL. I am proud to say that I narrowed it down to three.
Top 5 Tuesday saw me in a very NAUGHTY mood as we had to choose books under 300 pages so basically small books and it had me to think about SIZE and …well you can guess where my naughty mind took me to 😀
The Tuesday discussion was all about “The Art of Blogging in the Rain” or how to go on when you are very busy and tired without getting burned out.
Time for some quizz and posts that I loved IN THE BLOGOSPHERE
Epic Reads asks us if we could pass our YA101 class (I failed!!!!!)
Flora talks about how to write a review
Mandy and Sha speak about co-blogging
And the Orangutanlibrarian puts the spotlight on other bloggers
That’s all for this week folks! What have you been up to?
Thanks for reading
