Fisr thing first…
Happy New Year! I hope 2023 will treat you well my friends!
In my private life
Last week, I didn’t post a Sunday post because I simply was too exhausted . The last month of the year is always particularly brutal and I ended up every day completely exhausted.
That’s why I didn’t reply to comments for days and that I blog hopped sporadically!
But the good news is that now I am on holiday and I will have time to finally visit your blogs and chat with you all!
Our Christmas was a quiet but very enjoyable one with our kids and our two moms as our dad died years ago.
This week, I had an amazing time as my cousins from my mom’s side had organized a cousin’s gathering at a restaurant. We had a blast!
With COVID we hadn’t seen each other like that and it was so good to be able to talk and share souvenirs and great food. I was the only one working the day after and was decided to leave early but time flew by and we ended up closing the restaurant.
Well worth the fatigue the day after in front of my computer LOL.
And yesterday, I stayed with my husband and we had a TV marathon, beginning with Maverick and ending with… Top Gun. Out of order, I know.
I couldn’t help but think that Tom Cruise aged much better than Val Kilmer!
As is tradition now, I will post some reels that I did these last weeks if you are interested.
The first one is when it’s Christmas and you want to hide from the family to read 😉
Another one about sequels that I really enjoyed reading.
And the last one is what I say to people who wants me to go out on Christmas Eve instead of …staing in and reading a book.
On the blog this week
Well I posted mainly about my Best Reads of 2022 except…for the book that WOWED me!
Basically my BEST READ of 2022 !
And that’s because I got a message from Jetpack telling me that if I wanted to post more than 30 posts and be featured on WordPress Reader I had to upgrade to a paying plan. What I didn’t want to…
So today I present you with my favorite book of 2022.
And my 2022 winner is the RED RISING TRILOGYand in particular MORNING STAR.
All the stars, again, and I died several times while reading!
That’s the word that comes to mind when talking about the conclusion to the (first part) of the trilogy!
I am certain that my blood pressure must have been through the roof several times while listening to that book!
A friend (yes Justine, that’s you) had warned me “bring your tissues because Pierce Brown is relentless”. And she was right!
At chapter 58/59, I sent a message to my buddy read group screaming “I am afraid!!! I can’t read anymore!”
Of course those whom this was a reread just cackled evilly at my predicament! 😊
Pierce Brown took me for a spin there and when I say I must have died several times well of course that’s figurative but not so far from the truth. I was simply blown away when I discovered Pierce Brown’s Machiavellianism !!!
Again, we get that ragtag crew of friends from all colors with Sevro, Victra, Ragnar, Mustang, and many other old and new characters!
I should have read Red Rising in January with my buddy readers. Instead, we are now January 14th and I have finished red Rising, Golden Son and Morning Star…I think it says it all.
Now I will go blog hop and answer all your comments! Have a great Sunday!
Thanks for reading.
