This Sunday is the last day of my holiday! Let’s have a look at my week and as usual I am linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer
In my private life
This week has been good and bad.
Bad because I suffered from a mild migraine from Sunday to Thursday afternoon. It was not a “lie in the dark and vomit” one but still really draining. Luckily I got a reprieve the afternoon of my friend’s visit.
It’s also been a good one as I was on holiday and enjoyed a really great afternoon with a friend. We had lunch then went clothes shopping. As she loves art we visited my town’s museum displaying Felicien Rops’s art.
As she is the process of writing her first book and asked me to beta read and “be honest” I showed her my notes and we laughed because… I feel like an dragon editing her book! I was even shouting: “Punctuation! Commas, question marks, period…. they are your sentence’s life!”
I advised her to read her book aloud to “feel” if it sounded great or not.
We had a blast!
I also had a reiki session, when someone is massaging your feet and ankle, finding every point that’s working badly to let your energy flow properly again. It was incredible! At one point, my eyelids were closed and I was dozing when I got like a flash or like the summer emerging behind a cloud. I asked the healer what she had touched and it was the solar plexus! Fitting with my description .
I will have other appointments with her as there is a lot of work to do.
But hey, it’s self care!
Last information: I finally got the softboxes ordered last week and they make a big difference taking pictures while the sky is grey or it’s dark outside (see Cilka’s Journey picture in my sidebar)!
Oh and CALL TO BLOGGERS!
With two other bloggers (Amy and Angy) we are organizing a ” Meet your next Book Boyfriend” event for February.
It’s simple really: you fill in the doc here and you are in!
The goal is to write one post about your favorite book boyfriend and post between February 14th and February 28th. It can be fanart, top reasons why you love him, character interview ….anything that would explain to others why you fancy him so much!
Here is the doc if you are interested: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfE0PMWWTJjjW5XdEja3dj9GugaEwPwn-7VGs3D4oUxf_FUAQ/viewform
We are offering something a little different with the giveaway for this time. In the past, we’ve done a rafflecopter on each blog post. That will still be given to each participating blog. But this time we are going to offer an additional giveaway for those who want participate in a Facebook blog hop. So, everyone will have an option for 2 giveaways to participate in.
1st giveaway– $15.00 amazon gift card [Rafflecopter]
2nd giveaway – $15.00 amazon gift card [Facebook Blog Hop]
With the Facebook blog hop, you can offer an additional prize (for example, a copy of the book your book boyfriend is from) but it isn’t necessary to have an additional prize beyond what the Meet Your Next Tour is offering of a $15.00 amazon gift card.

I reviewed three books but three other reviews are scheduled already for next week! One of the reviews this week is an audiobook and will be added for the 2020 Audiobook Challenge (that’s three audiobooks for that challenge so far! I am kicking it 😀 )
As I’ve announced last week, I’ll be participating in the 2020 Audiobook Challenge, stenographer level.
And I posted a part 2 post about my most awaited books!
