Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week . I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer .
In my private life
This week, I was back to work and I really realized the good my three weeks of vacation did! I was thrown into problem after problem for long hours and I am proud to say that I was as cool as a cucumber!
That would have been vastly different prior to my vacation where I felt like a ticking bomb!
We’ll see how long it lasts and enjoy my current state of mind in the meantime!
Also this week, I watched a TV show!!!
Something I rarely do as I prefer reading but my husband discovered Wednesday Addams on Netflix! I had seen the trailer on another blog, I think Lashaan’s blog and wanted to watch. I am a total newbie concerning the Addams family but I HAD A BLAST!
Beware of the Husband even commented that he “wanted to be Wednesday when he grew up” 😉 Considering that he is a big man and Wednesday very thin and 5’5″ that says it all!
I am leaving you with the trailer below.
I also told you last weekend that I was painting new edges. Well I made a reel on Instagram with all the edges I painted so far. The last ones are Heart of the Sun Warrior. And I think I’ll write a tutorial one of these days.
And that’s it! Now I am going to hike in the woods, under the rain LOL
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
I had an EXCELLENT reading week with two five stars read and an “all the stars” one.
If you are a fan of Harry Potter or just curious about it, I really urge you to read Beyond the Wand by Tom Felton! Even better: listen to the audiobook!
Heart of the Sun Warrior by Sue Lynn Tan was an excellent conclusion to that duology!
And then, honestly an author who has me reading all her backlist books this year and who AMAZED me with her storytelling: Cursed by Marissa Meyer was just EPIC!
Now for the end of the year… I have done my BLOGMAS for years now, distributing my own awards and inviting people to participate if they wanted it.
As my life is very busy, I will do it but tone it down this year. I won’t be able to religiously follof what others would post so I’ll just go with the flow and present you my “best books read in 2023”. You are welcome to join of course but I can’t promise to react promptly to every post. Sorry!
More about it next week.
Thanks for reading!
Kudos for handling all the crises at the office! I am in utter awe on your painted edges! You could make a mint selling those.
I’ve been wanting to watch Wednesday too so I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it so much!
My husband and I started Wednesday this weekend too… and finished it also, because it was too good to stop watching 🙂 Love your book edges!
I watched the first episode of Wednesday this weekend and was pleasantly surprised! Can’t wait to watch more!
I saw Wednesday Addams advertised, but haven’t watched it. It’s something I’ll have to watch alone – I guarantee hubby would never try it. Have a great week, Sophie!
Well Teri you’d might be surprised with your hubby! I was surprised with mine 😉
You might be (gosh it’s been a long day)
I hardly ever watch TV but I was thinking about watching a show tonight. Glad to hear you found a good one. It is wonderful to have time off and recharge making it easier to deal with everyday stresses. Happy to hear your vacation helped you, Sophie! Have a lovely week!
And you too Rachel!
Always fun to discover a new show! I love seeing you have so much fun with the painting edges.
I haven’t been on Netflix in a bit and now you have me excited to give Wednesday Addams a try! I hope that you have a wonderful week!
I also tend to read rather than watch tv. It looks like you are reading some really great books too.
Anne – Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post
I did Anne!
Vacations are good for helping us to calm down and come back refreshed. And I need a new show!
Oh please watch it Greg! And give me feedback!
I love the photo at the top of your post!
Wednesday Addams looks good, and I might have to check it out.
Enjoy your week, and hopefully the benefits of your vacation will linger for a while.
I hope you will give Wednesday a chance Laurel!
I’m looking forward to watching Wednesday.
The edges are beautiful!
Wishing you a great reading week
I hope you’ll love Wednesday! Also enjoy your vacation!
I loved the Addams Family-the original and all the unique reboots throughout the years. Such a fun family. Glad you were able to handle things at work-that is always such a good feeling!
It is indeed Samantha!
I love your painted books! They’re so pretty! I’m glad you enjoyed your vacation. I know I need a break from work when I start having mental breakdowns over every problem. 🙂 I’ll have to check out that Netflix series. Have a great week!
You too AJ, have a great week!
I’m just in awe of your painted pages – they are so freakin’ gorgeous! I’ve had the Sun Warrior duology on my TBR for a while – maybe next year! And I added the Meyer duology too….your review makes it sound great and I love a good retelling. Have a great week!

Thank you Terrie!
I will probably start Wednesday Addams today, I’m glad you loved it! And wow, your painted edges look so professional Hope your week is a good one!
Oooh let me know if you love Wednesday Tammy!
I watched The Addams Family when I was growing up and I saw the movie, but I have not seen this new series. Glad you enjoyed it.
Maybe you’ll give it a chance Sam?
I haven’t watched TV since 2019, so probably not
Back to work after 3 weeks off is hard! I want to watch Wednesday too!
I hope you will Caro!
