It’s Sunday again time to chat about my week! As usual I am linking back to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer.
In my private life
First I came to the realization that even if I was retired I would never have enough time to do all that I want!
It’s been two weeks since I began my holiday and I am no better at blog hoping and commenting because I am too ambitious on what I want to do blog wise.
Making candles aside (the first week) I have been reading like a mad woman as I miscalculated the ARCs that I had requested this month! Or rather some got pushed back and others came unexpectedly putting lots of stress on my reading schedule! Most, if not ,were very good but I am not used to read 4 books a week AND blog AND post on Instagram at the same time!!!!!!
One of these ARCs “A Scarcity of Condors” by Suanne Laqueur had me reading this one in one day and I think it’s a big one!
So I am once more like Alice’s rabbit: running late!
This week I had my appointment with the neurologist for my migraines and it went well. Nothing serious to worry about “just” stress and I’ll have to take some B vitamins. My neurologist is a childhood friend and she’s been off work for two years and a half, battling a stage 4 breast cancer. When she explained her treatment, all the side effects etc she told me that her healing was a miracle!
I felt humbled truly! Guys as long as we have a good health we are wealthy believe me!
I also visited a friend who is in a cast for weeks now and gave her advices with her teenage daughters. Mind you, she has five daughters! Ranging from 5 to 16 years old. Better she than I!
Once again it gave me some perspective on my kids antics!
These good news were followed by my app Later social media being blocked by my home security. My router is detecting 88 suspicious files and Trend Micro has categorized Later as “Spammer”! I am sure it’s a misunderstanding somewhere (maybe they have sent massive mails and been categorized as spammers) but in the meanwhile I can’t use the app to schedule on Instagram and it drives me crazy!
I’ve spent hours chatting with their first line on Twitter but as it’s technical I’ll have to wait Tuesday, after what seems to be a long weekend in Canada, to have the help of technicians. Sigh. Just when I had opted for a paid plan of course ….
Last news about why I have been bad at commenting and blog hoping: I am preparing my yearly Blogmas!
See the picture below this is what I plan to post about every day in December. I will announce this event properly next week but if you want to participate, even in some days only, you’ll be welcome!
It’s kind of my 2019 awards 😀
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
I have read 5 books and posted 3 reviews (2 of which relates to books read last week).
My favorite by a mile was Landon & Shay part one by Brittainy C Cherry! 5 stars!
By Any Other Name by Kayti McGee and M. Pierce was an “impulse” ARC as it was announced very last minute. I wanted to try a book by M. Pierce for such a long time that I volunteered! Verdict: enjoyable and well done.
Finally, when faced with all the hype about Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin I listened to the audiobook.
On Tuesday I wrote about the books that I want to read before the end of the year. The good news is that A Scarcity of Condors has been read this week. I am listening to Six of Crows and read Call Down the Hawk!
In my weekly discussion I decided to talk about covers! Why they are important, my favorites and the trends that I can see.
In the blogosphere and literary world
Epic Reads has built a quizz to know if you would survive the end of the world! With no big surprise: I would not survive!
No blog post (I told you I have been a bad bad blogger this week!) but I have read this incredible and terrible post by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater explains something terrible that happened to her when she lost her words.
Now do tell me all about your week!!! I will comment back asap (between writing my posts for Blogmas LOL).
Thanks for reading!
