Hi dear friends!
Time for a little weekly chit chat about how my week went and what happened on the blog. As usual I will link it up with @CaffeinatedReviewer.
I am writing this post on a Saturday as I want to be free on Sunday to read and read and read and ….because my second most anticipated reads of 2018 has arrived!
Long live to Kingdom of Ash!
Private life first
This week has been really intense at work especially on Thursday as we had very very important persons visiting us at work. They wanted to meet me alongside some fellow colleagues. Everything had to happen in English which is not our mother tongue. I am used to write and speak English but not in my professional environment anymore. It was six very intense hours and I ended my day totally whipped!
I went back home, did not even blog *gasp!* and was in bed at 9:30 PM. I slept more than 8 hours straight!
But my boss was very happy with me so there is that!
I will have three weeks off work beginning in the middle of next week and that makes me very happy!!!

Well I reviewed three books but already have read four books.
Picture Perfect Cowboy by Tiffany Reisz is a kinky fairytale. Erotic at its best. Very well written.
Fall was deeply moving and fun! It tackles heavy topics like depression and addiction with great justess.
A Very Large Expanse of Sea is one of my bests for this year. Eye opening. Truly a must read!
The last book I’ve read but not reviewed yet is “More Than We Can Tell” by Brigid Kemmerer. Review incoming next week hopefully!
This week the fun has begun!!!! I am participating in Blogoween Level 2 with a post each day till the 31st.
Let me tell you that some made me sweat!
The first day I speak about books that left me crippled! I love it as I get to rave about really amazing books.
The second day was hard! It was Hunger Game Halloween themed! How the heck should I interpret this prompt??? Well it ended being a real fun, just have a peek 😀
On day three I made a quiz about “What spooky creature are you”. As I love a challenge and learning new things, I wanted to make it a real quiz like Buzfeed. I am pleased with how it turned out.
On day four it was Toil and Trouble. Villain themed. And I just love gushing about a “good” villain.
I didn’t forget my Top 5 Tuesday! This week’s topic was magical books but I wanted to make you discover some “underdogs”. Some books that I’ve loved deeply and crying for your attention! If you are curious and want to discover something new, be my guest!
Of course you also have my traditional WWW Wednesday.
Pfew that’s it for this week! Oh and know that tonight I will take over a group on Facebook for the first time ever! I also had to plan the posts. And I also wrote a post about romance in YA books as Dani @perspectiveofawriter asked me to be her guest today! I am really excited as it should be published today! Keep your eyes open.
I also nearly forgot!
There is an international giveaway running on my IG account till the end of November! I am giving away two hardcopies of The City of Brass (two winners) as I had mistakenly ordered three copies!!!!
