Today is Sunday and it’s time to chat about what happened this week on the blog and in real life! As usual I am linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer
In my private life first
Well this was my last week off work and from Wednesday afternoon I’ve been plagued by the flu! Or a virus making it seem like the flu (I did not call the doctor as I was on holiday) as there was not one inch of my body who did not hurt like hell!
And of course it all happened the day before I had to drive my husband for a surgery, the last step after he fell from his bike in May! He was meant to leave the hospital the day self and I was so sick that, aside a quick trip to the chemist to haul something again chills, pain and fever, I slept the whole day in the seat in his room just feeling miserable! I had no energy to leave and come back. Nothing. Zilch!
I just took some medicine, slept, then read, then slept again and rinse repeat! I was so happy when I could get back home in the evening and take a long warm bath!
My sorry state lasted three days. Now, I don’t have fever anymore but begin what I suspect is a sinusitis! Yay! I am due back to work tomorrow so one day to heal 😀
I was feeling so bad that I had no energy to blog hop, go to Facebook or Instagram or …. So sorry if I did not comment back or visit you I just couldn’t.
I hope next week will be much better!
The bright side of being sick, because it’s important to find something positive in each situation, is that I have read three books in five days! One of them is just food for the soul: The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes!
On the blog
Well this will be pretty short as all activity stopped by Wednesday, aside pre scheduled posts! I have reviewed two books this week.
Scared Little Rabbits by A.V. Geiger: a good YA mystery/crime. 4 stars
Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Steifvater which was …disappointing to me and gave for an unpopular opinion! 3,5 stars
No discussion post this week, just the Top 5 Tuesday with the top authors I still need to read!
On the blogosphere and literary world
This weekly quizz by EpicReads offers you to determine if you rather are like Elsa or Anna based on your favorite book characters!
Aaand I have just learned that I could veer anti hero 😯 as my result is:
“You’re more like Elsa!
You’re more on the reserved side, and many people around you probably don’t know what you’re truly capable of. You might even veer into antihero territory if you were a YA character of your own. But at the end of the day, we know you’ll always do the right thing. Probably…”

As I’ve said I did not blog hop past Wednesday but still want to mention this interesting post by Sophia explaining why she does not have tons of bookshelves on Goodreads!
That’s it guys! I will do my best today to visit and answer comments I promise but just know that I am still not 100% back to health so I might be slow doing it!
Thanks for reading!
