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
This week has been one of the saddests since I began blogging as we learned some days ago that Isabel, Emma Scott’s ten years old daughter had suffered from a heart attack. In spite of all the love and prayers sent her way we learned today that Isabel won’t make it.
Even if I did not know Emma Scott personally it would be a very sad news as no parent should face the death of their kid.
But having chatted and met Emma for more than one year it hit me even more.
This is not something sad that I read on the media.
It’s become personal and my soul is weeping today.
This extremely sad event occured in a very tense and busy week in our life as we are still waiting for the kids school results.
My daughter will go in her last year of high school but she’ll have schoolwork in the holiday (mathematics was a failure).
My son is still waiting for his results but his mathematics exams happened under unconceivable circumstances. If the kids had 50% at their written exam they did not have to go to the oral. Well 75% of the students with this teacher had to go to the oral. In their last year of high school do you find this normal? Is the problem with the kids or with the teacher?
The oral happened at the same time as another oral. Answer of the teacher “Not my problem. Go to my oral, leave the classroom to go to the other oral then come back here”. Ideal circumstances to have an exam and focus ….
Result: I wrote a long detailed but factual mail (took me 50 minutes) to the school’s principal explaining everything for two years with this teacher. Now we wait….
On the blog
I said last week that I landed many ARCs and I had a beta read to do within 2 weeks. Well this week I’ve read four books and reviewed three!
I still have two books to read next week and one beta read to do… Click on the graphic to read the review
Almost Impossible by Nicole Williams is the perfect beach read! 4 stars.
One Small Thing did not live up to my expectations but that’s OK as not every book will be your cup of tea. I’ll still read Erin Watt’s books in the future as they are talented writers.
This one was a fantastic but “Out of my comfort zone” read! 4,5 stars.
I have read but still have to review Moonlight Seduction by Jennifer L Armentrout (4 stars).
I also was lucky to interview one of my fellow bloggers Ramona from Ramona’s Read with Love! It was an interesting change from authors.
As usual my favorite memes without the Top 5 Tuesday (I took a break)
I Heart Characters was about a grump with a heart of gold (made me sweat)
And First Impression Friday was about Moonlight Seduction
In the blogosphere now… I’ve been a bad bad bad blogger as I rushed to read and handle my kids problems!
Today’s fellow blogger post is the one from Marie where she gives advices about avoiding reading slump (worst nightmare for a book blogger!).
How was your week?
Thanks for reading.
