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
As many on the planet, we are on lockdown.
This was the second week of quarantine and I have been sick. Given the current virus, no doctor came home but I was ordered rest for the whole week as I had a clogged nose, headaches, backache, shivers and I was exhausted!
Lucky for me I have an excellent immune system and it seems that these days were enough for me to be alive and kicking again, versus my hubs who has needed more than two weeks!
Our government has decided to extend our lockdown and, cherry on top, our mayor has decided to be even more restrictive.
I can now only go for a walk or a run or a ride in my own neighborhood!
This will be the new me then (hopefully sans cat):
Kind of walking four to five times around the neighborhood to have my one hour daily walk!
Fish bowl I tell you!
That being said I respect what’s been asked of us as the number of infected people is still rising in Belgium and death are on the rise too. So far, we don’t lack hospital beds nor have to make hard choices about who to save like in Italy but that’s why we have to respect the social distancing, lockdown and hand washing!
Of course, some are egotistical and don’t respect this at all. That’s selfish, dumb and outright uncivil behavior!
As I had lots of time between naps, I reorganized my bookshelves as rainbow and I also did a huge book tower.
Said book tower did not fall once (contrary to my previous and smallest attempt) thanks to Bridget @darkefaerietale ‘s tutorial on IG TV! If you are interested, just DM me on Instagram and I’ll send you the link.
Here you have them, in all their glory:
Now some humor for you as we all need to laugh in these times:
“How to shop with a bookworm:
Enter the store.
Keep eyes on your bookworm at all times.
Wow ok you lost them.
They’re gone forever now! :-D
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
This week I have posted three reviews! And finished another book too. Pfew I get my reading mojo back.
Twice a Wish by Pepper Winters was a 4,5 stars. That series is HOT! But there is more than sex or rather, the sex does not feel like a filler because that’s something I can’t stand.
Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare was everything I hoped for an more! I have a new favorite kickass heroine: Cordelia Carstairs and book boyfriend James Herondale.
Then I went for an unpopular opinion of a very hyped book: The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller. Honestly I can understand that some (most it seems) will adore it as it’s kind of love or hate for the main character.
Just one non review post this week: the Top 5 Tuesday with the author’s alphabet still going strong. I made my teams from P to T and asked you to choose your favorite!
On the blogosphere and in the literary world

My quarantine mate was :
There’s no zombie outbreak yet, but if there’s any sign of danger at all, your trusty quarantine-mate Jane McKeene will kick their ass. If there’s anyone who knows how to get by, it’s Jane.”
I should be all right! 😉
