Hi dear friends!
It’s Sunday again and that means that the time has come to look into the rearview mirror and chat about my week out and on the blog!
As usual I am linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer
What happened this week in real life?
Well I gave a training on Tuesday and ended up sick till Wednesday evening! Sick is a big word as I am never (or very rarely) sick but I had a killer headache, clogged nose and throat pain for about 36 hours. I suspect the AC!
And that makes me worried for next week as I’ll be away from home from Monday to Friday evening!
I am grateful to follow a training as it seems really promising and interesting but I HATE not going back home on the evening.
Where most people are happy to go to the restaurant in the morning, lunch and in the evening even if they don’t have a say in the food I just dread it! I can’t eat fat due to a mild condition to my liver and it makes going to the restaurant tricky if I can’t choose my food. If I can choose no problem but that won’t be the case an I hope I won’t end up ill…
My other problem is the AC.
Since working in big buildings with AC I often get headaches and here we’ll be in a bus (with AC) and in hotels (with AC) with very little time to go outside.
And last but not least I am totally not a people person by the end of a workday!
I just want to be left alone and read, blog, etc.
Not go with a buyant big group of colleagues to the restaurant till past 10 PM!
No Sire, not that girl.
So to make it short I love being trained but I wish I could go back home every evening.
A sad news or rather disappointing news this week for my son.
He has dreamt of joining the army since he was a little boy. Last year, at the end of high school he applied but did not get in as he had asthma when running. This year he’s followed another cursus and planned to apply again.
He will soon turn twenty and when I asked him repeatedly to please contact the army and ask to take the exams he always told me “Mom! I am an adult! Let me! I know what I am doing!”.
The last day to apply was April 30th so of course he phoned the army on April 29th (plenty of time left right?). And that’s when he learned that due to his condition last year he could only apply again ….in 2020! They need two years to have a clean health slate!
Down went his dream!
A friend of mine highly ranked in the army told him to contact them the day after and contest. Try to push as we need people in the army.
That’s when my son explained to me that he was shy, did not feel at ease to push like that and that maybe one more year working in another job would be good to improve his self esteem and self confidence.
I was floored!
His speech was always “I am an adult, let me be!” and he was adamant for months but deep down inside he is still young and afraid to begin the adult life…
Now on a positive note, they announced the authors line up for YALC London!!!!
And I’ve just spent over 100 EUR to order some books to get signed by some attending authors!
The biggest names are V.E. Schwab and Renee Ahdieh.YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
Just a last word: next week I’ll do my best to interact with you but I fear that with the business program we will have it will be really complicated! I scheduled some posts and discussion but I promise to get back to you next weekend if I am not able during the week.

With the candle adventure and the training that I gave on Tuesday plus being sick on Wednesday I did not review many books….
But the book I reviewed was AWESOME! I am now a fan of Brandon Sanderson, especially of his YA books. Skyward was a 6 stars!
In the Top 5 Tuesday I talked about the sequels that I can’t wait to have in my greedy hands! Of course I had to go with some humor first as to why and when we need to read a sequel!
I am warming up to the “Can’t Wait Wednesday” and chose this week a book by Amy Harmon!
Then my discussion post of the week was all about YA stories! The “do and don’t” or rather what I don’t want to find in YA stories and what I really love to read about in these books.
Don’t forget to enter my Giveaway! As I will be away next week I opted out of an ebook and chose to have a PAPERBACK giveaway with a mix of romance and YA!
On the blogosphere this week
I am so sorry as I was busy or sick I did not have much time blog hopping but I am so not forgetting to give you some quizz or fun post from the book world!
EpicReads invites you to find what your book to read will be this month based on your horoscope!
And as I love gorgeous covers and am always fascinated by graphic designers and their art, I’m posting about the work behind the making of a cover!
That’s it for this week!
I hope you’ll read my scheduled posts next week and will be indulgent if I am slow to answer back and like!
Now do tell me: how was your week?
Thanks for reading!
