Playing Santa or rather, Saint Nicolas for colleagues while on lockdown. Th Sunday Post 22/11/2020

Hi friends,

Today is Sunday, time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week in and out of the blog. As usual I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer .


In my private life

Well not much to tell this week.

Just that I enjoyed my last week of staycation in taking lots of pictures and making yet another reels (link below) while I am grooving on Mark Ronson with other bookstagrammers.

I am beginning to master that video editing thing! 😀 

Here is the link if you are curious :


I also listened to a very long audiobook (29 hours) in three days only as I just wanted to know how it ended (more next week).


And I took the time to write personalized cards and wrap gifts for my colleagues. See the picture below.

I only have three more boxes to go but I am waiting for them to give me their address (this is not madatory of course but in lockdown, if they want all the Belgian chocolate, I need their address).

It only took me 10 minutes to figure out how to build a box 😆 


And next week I’ll announce my yearly challenge for December : Best Reads of 2020.

This year I will be joined by a bunch of other bloggers and bookstagrammers who will host with me.

It means daily posts on Instagram and on the blog from December 1st till 31st gushing about our favorite reads of the year!


I am going back to work tomorrow, well homeworking, and even if I had three weeks break I would have loved even more. I guess I am just greedy!


On the blog last week (click on the graphic to read the post)

I have only reviewed two books because I felt sooo lazy even if I have read a third one but that I decided not to review this time.

The Camelot Betrayal by Kiersten White was a good sequel toThe Guinevere Deception. This is an imaginative rendering of the Arthurian Legend.


Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston was a pure delight to listen to! I wondered why I had waited so long to read it!


Just one other post in the Top 5 Tuesday that became a “more than 5” post because I loved the idea of talking about books I was glad I had read! That gave me the opportunity to feature some books that I rarely do.



Last bit of fun: if you want a quiz, Epic Reads has one to guess: WHAT ROLE YOU’D PLAY IN A FAE COURT take the etst here:

My results : “You are tragically, unfortunately … Human

Yeah… good luck. The fae world may seem cool and all but odds are you’re in wayyyy over your head. if you get get out, DO IT. If you insist on staying, well, don’t say we didn’t warn you…” 😆 

Have a great week!

  6. Ohhh I’m so jealous of them getting Belgian chocolate, that sounds AMAZING! And woohoo, here’s hoping you love how that audio book ends, especially since you have such a huge time investment in it *fingers crossed*!

  7. Wow 29 hours for an audio book? That is long. I think Kristen Ashley books are maybe that long, too.

    I can’t believe we’re already at the end of the year! I need to start sorting my best reads. Have a great week! 🙂

  8. You can add me to the list for some Belgian chocolate!

  9. Blogger, vidder, box-builder… The sky’s the limit as far as you’re concerned! Well done 🙂

  12. Go you Sophie! The boxes look awesome. And congrats on the IG!!

    Ooh quizz!!!

  13. Yum..Belgian chocolate?! Awesome friend, LOL! Will be having sign ups for your Best of? I’d like to participate somewhere this year!! Have a great week, my friend!

  14. Belgian chocolate is amazing. I wish I had bought more when we were in Belgium! Have a wonderful week!

  15. I’m glad you had a relaxing week and didn’t do too much. I’ll look forward to your best reads of the year. We are doing a top 10 thing here the week of December 21st so maybe you can join us for some of it. Have a lovely week!

  16. Wow an almost 30hour audiobook in 3 days?! That’s insanely awesome! 😮 I’m also curious as too all the goodies in those boxes now! 🙂

  17. Sounds like you were very productive during your staycation. Twenty nine hours is a long audiobook. Was it a fantasy? They are usually long.

  18. You are so lovely, your colleagues are very lucky to have you, and Belgian chocolate is the best!! Can’t wait to see the December IG challenge!

  19. Wow, you are getting very professional with the bookstagraming eh, if there is such a word. Love it. And all those boxes are what, Belgian chocolate? Damn, I should be putting in my order with you!!

    Anyway, bet you’re not looking forward to going back to work too soon. And hope you enjoyed your time off.

  20. I am so curious to see your best reads of the year!! And those gift boxes are so beautiful! Hard work pays off for the ones we care about.

    Hope you have a blessed and giving week darling.
