It’s already Sunday again time to meet and chat about what’s happened this week in my life and on the blog. As usual I am linking back to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @caffeinatedreviewer .
In my private life first
Well not much happened this week as Fall is upon us with cooler temperature, rain and various seasonal sickness hitting many of us!
I’ve had a headache for two days now and it leaves me exhausted and barely able to blog but …it’s not life threatening so I’ll survive!
Now something ironical: my daughter is now at university in her dorm during the week as many of you know. She claims that she is adult and that she loves being independent. If this is a good thing it stings when she becomes all condescending on us like many teenages/young adults can be with their parents.
This week she called me as she was feeling really sick and ill. Huge headache, vomiting, pains everywhere etc. I asked her if she wanted me to bring her back as she was so down on the telephone. She refused saying she would miss too many classes the day after and that she wanted to sleep on it and see if she didn’t feel better in the morning. And then, in a tiny desolate voice, she added: “But I am always feeling better when you are with me mom.”
Seems to me that whatever their age, kids will always need their mom when they have problems or feel low!
Luckily, the day after she was much better after having taken the medicine I advised 😀
Now let’s get to my title!
After the last Top 5 Tuesday many of you were curious to hear my voice and my accent so I thought I would oblige because once, I was recorded on a Podcast made by my friend Danielle @prettymessreading who lives in Florida with my other blogger friend Ramona who is Romanian so…
Here is the link to the podcast and if you don’t want to listen to all of it I begin talking about 3 minutes in the recording.
Sorry for the “blanks” or mistakes or hesitations it was completely live and I had no notes to look at, so just …improvising!
On the blog this week (click on the picture to read the post)
I have reviewed two books.
The first one is a fantastic romcom with a very lovable and refreshing main character: Dorothy Mayhem! I really had a blast reading this last book of Jewel E Ann and recommend it wholeheartedly if you want a light but smart book! 4,5 stars
The second review is about a historical fiction in audiobook. The Huntress is the second book by Kate Quinn that I’ve listened to and is a really wonderful story happening duting and after WWII. 5 stars and highly recommend it as the narrator is excellent!
This week for our Top 5 Tuesday, Shanah asked us our top booktubers. As I don’t follow booktubers aside one I had to put a spin on the weekly topic and explained the top reasons why I would never be a booktuber!
And this week’s discussion topic asked if we need to be loud/brash/original to be a good book blogger.
On the blogosphere and in the literary world
I love the sound of that quiz!!!! It’s about villains and Epicreads asks us how wicked of a YA supervillain we would be!!! And my result is:
“Consider yourself officially #blocked
You might not be set on world domination, but your betrayal ran just too deep to come back from.” Insert mad cackling laughter here! 😈
And I know it was difficult to blog hop this week but I will leave Marie’s post about the things we should know if we want to be a book blogger!
Now tell me how was your week?
Thanks for reading.
