Hi dear friends,
The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted @Caffeinated Reviewer. Time to look back on my week and talk about life events and blog related news.
Personal news first
I would like to apologize if I did not like and comment on your posts since Friday but yesterday I took a holiday from blogging!
I had just gotten this ARC of Samantha Young “The Fragile Ordinary” and when I began reading it I just decided that I wanted to read it in one day! It worked perfectly with my mood and was effortless. I identified with the heroine nose always stuck in a book…
Then as I was decidedly “blog dieting” I went all in an went to the movie theater with my daughter. Girls night!
The movie was book related as it was The Guernsey Literary Circle adaptation of “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
I loved the book and I loved the movie!
It has three actors from Downtown Abbey series and all the English “vibe” that I so love. You know no dramatic effects, no big special effects but attention to historical details. We really had a good time!
It was the perfect way to conclude an exhausting week filled with work and the kids finals (still one week to go!). I also got my blood results and everything was perfect! Pfew. I only have to go back for a check in four months to the doctor but no further testing and proding in the meanwhile.
Next week will be hectic again and filled to the brim until the school ends by the end of June.
On the blog
I had a very busy and funny week on the blog!
I have read four books but reviewed two so far! Of the four of them one was a miss and I’ll write the review next week.
Click on the graphics to read the review.
A Wish for Us was a 5 stars emotional read!
Atticus is …. a unique read and my book crush of the month so far. 5 stars.
Every day I posted some part of James Cudney alias Jay’s interview and it got many reactions. I am so happy as he and his books deserve all the attention! Once again I want to thank Jay as he really gave it all!
Here are the links from day one to day seven (in reading order).
Then as I was lucky to get an interview with …Atticus the dog and his mom Sawyer Bennett!
This dual POV interview was really fun and Sawyer has been revealed under a light I did not know! If you want some fun just read it clicking on the graphic below.
I also took part in different weekly memes Top 5 Tuesday with favorite covers in colors blue, green and purple. The WWW Wednesday , I Heart Characters (about a flying character) and the First Impression Friday!
Then to my utter astonishment I learned that I had won the second book blogger award in the category romance right alongside Cammilea, Ari and Kayla all fantastic fellow bloggers. I’m still not recovered! I’m not the biggest blog and even if I pour everything I’ve got into this I never expected to win! So thank you to everyone who voted! I am honored and humbled! Read below to see all the winners!
Now on the blogosphere I found Kaleena’s post very interesting especially as the RSS feed was a mystery for me…. https://readervoracious.wordpress.com/2018/06/14/how-to-set-up-rss-readers-and-why-you-should-use-them/
And as usual Evelina is generous and introduces new bloggers! http://avalinahsbooks.space/newbloggerswelcome-2/
This was my week! How was your week?
Leave a comment and I’ll comment back 😉
