Hi dear friends,

Today is Sunday, and I am back from my business trip! Yay! Time to have a chat with you about what happened in my life and on the blog last week, linking back to The Sunday Post @caffeinatedreviewer!

First my private life

As my title suggests I spent my whole day yesterday from around 10:30 AM till 6 PM at the emergency of one of our local hospitals after my husband fell really bad from his MTBR (see som Sunday’s ago when I talked about his new elctrical mountain/dirt bike).

A little context here.

Saturday morning, around 10 AM I was happy trying to schedule my bookstagrams for the week to come. My husband had just left to go biking, alone.

10:15 AM phone call from my husband as he fell in a quarry close to home and could not move anymore or rather dared to move anymore.

We went to rescue him my son and I while he called the 112 (ambulances, police and firefighter). I guided the doctors to the site while my son was staying with my husband.

I followed the ambulance to the hospital and after a loooooooooooong wait with some moments of action in between my husband was back home with a broken rib and a broken clavicle. Nothing life threatening but it hurt like mad!!!!

He had already suffered from a broken rib 20 years ago and we both recalled how painful that was!

He will be four weeks at home and I guess that I’ll have to do some homeworking on Monday to help him get settled.

So who said biking was healthy hu?

Oh and it’s such a pity that I didn’t meet one of these two while waiting….



On the blog (click on the graphic to read the post)

I have struggled the whole week to blog hop and comment back! I also noticed on Friday that some comments from bloggers on Blogger had been sent to my spam bin! I unearthed them and tried to answer the best I could.

Honestly my week away from home at the beginning of May made it daunting to catch up! Especially as I had a very strong migraine on Tuesday and ended up in bed very early.

But I did manage to read two books and write the reviews!

A Five-Minute Life by Emma Scott was a very good read on a unique concept as the female character only has 5 minute to rember something then it’s gone!


Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman was brilliant! And I must confess that the story being “linear” and told by the heroes makes for a much better reading experience to me than the Illuminae Files (don’t throw rocks!!!).

On Tuesday I gave you a looooong list of books with magic.

My can’t Wait Wednesday was all about the Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White, insipired by Arthurian legends.

And my weekly discussion post on Thursday was about asking if your job can influence your favorite reading genre.

On the blogosphere and some quizz!


Some quizz: pic a shade of color and see what YA book you’ll get!

I loved these articles: one by Sophia when she shows you signs that your blog is evolving and one by Marie who explains that blogging can cause anxiety but is still worth it!

  1. OH no Sophie I am so sorry to hear about your Hubby! I am sure by now he is hopefully ok but geez that stinks!


  2. That is insane! I hope he gets better quickly and that both you and your son aren’t too stressed by it all in the coming weeks. Sure does make me not want to bike… ever… Did you scold him for the incident or did you remain super caring? 😮

    1. I would never scold someone for an accident Lashaan as it can happen to anyone and the person is already suffering enough! Caring the best that I can but sometimes it’s difficult to remain patient LOL

  3. Sympathy to your husband – I remember cracking my rib years back and it was so painful just to breathe for the first week 🙁
    I hope his new bike survived the fall ok?

  4. OMG! Sophie, I’m just getting around to reading your post today, as we’re in the middle of a long weekend here. I can’t believe your poor husband has gone and fallen and worse, has broken bones not weeks after just acquiring his new/used bike! I cannot image how you felt when you got his call to say he’d fallen and then, finding out he has broken ribs. That’s going to hurt, BIG time.

    My sympathies go out to your hubby, and I hope that everything goes okay with his recovery. And a BIG hug to you too, as you play nurse, amongst everything else you do. ❤

  5. Oh wow a broken rib and clavicle! Yikes sounds painful! Poor guy- hope he’s feeling better!

    Did I miss your Tuesday post? Ack I better go look…

    Hope you had a good weekend!

  6. Oh no I’m so sorry to hear about your husband, I hope that he will feel better soon, sending all the speedy healing vibes! <3 <3
    I hope you'll have a wonderful week <3 <3

  7. Oh no, your poor husband! Sounds like every movement would be terribly painful. 🙁 I’m looking forward to picking up Emma Scott’s latest. Although I’ll need to let my emotions rest after I finish Long Shot. It’s tearing me up! I’m also trying to get caught up with blog hopping/commenting. It’s so hard once you fall behind!

    1. Yes I am so behind and having had my second migraine in one week yesterday makes it even harder Tanya! I have seen your comments about Long Shot but I hope to read it one day! I’ll just have to be in the right mood..

  8. Your poor husband! I hope he has a speedy recovery. Emma Scott is a writing machine. I feel like there is always a new book of her’s to pick up.

    1. Thank you so much and …the bike was OK (thanks god as it was brand new and cost so much!)

  9. What a bummer for your husband! And you, of course. Spending all day in the ER is no fun. Hope his recovery goes well. Happy reading, Sophie! 🙂

  10. What a frightening experience for you all! I have had my own recent hospital experience, and believe me when I say it was not fun, either.

    Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  11. Bloody hell Sophie, I’m happy to hear Hubby didn’t suffer a much worse fate, not that broken ribs and clavicle isn’t horrible. I loved your reviews. Great wrap up post. x

    1. I am relieved too Flora! And no it’s not the end of the world but it’s bloody painful! xx

  12. Your experience is so scary! I’m so glad your husband was able to call for help. I wish him speedy healing.

  13. Sophie!! I hope your husband makes a speedy recovery!! Sending lots of well wishes to him, and to you – it’s an adjustment having them home all the time!!

  14. I’m so happy your husband is mostly OK, Sophie! I have that fear each and every time my husband goes cycling – and I have had to pick him up a few times, even if there was nothing serious wrong with him, either.
    Your new books look good, and I hope you’ll enjoy them.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

    1. Oh no! So you know everything about retrieving as in rescuing the hubs when he goes cycling? LOL
