Hi dear friends!
Time to have a chat with you about what happened in my life and on the blog this month linking back to The Sunday Post @caffeinatedreviewer!
In my private life first …
Well this drawing should symbolize my week and current mood!
This Wonder Woman was drawn by Joelle Jones (find all the info in this link https://dcwomenkickingass.tumblr.com/post/10849777862/joelle)
What I meant to say is that the school is finished for the kids, my hubs is slowly getting better, all the “end of school parties” have ended (hence I am not needed as often as taxi driver or cook or …) and lots of people at work are on holiday meaning less meetings!
We have room on the train (except for some traveling kids going to or from summer camp) and I am waiting only one more week for my holiday.
So I feel way less stressed and began to set aside my wonder woman costume. 😀
On the blog (click on the graphic to read the post)
First a message to Mary @stackingtheshelves: thank you for all your comments! You exploded my stats LOL I will answer them today 😀
I know I have lots of comments to reply to but I have been lazy and unwinding this week as I was utterly spent! So today is the day I will reply (but I did blog hop see below! ).
I have read and reviewed three books this week and did an advanced review/beta read for an author’s friend (I can’t wait for you to read her story!).
Obsessed by Aleatha Romig is book two in the Tangle Web series.
Storm and Fury by Jennifer L Armentrout was entertaining, with good banter but just not my favorite by her.
And my favorite was Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. 5 stars and WOW! I will read her other books as she has a unique style and did a smart job of talking about diversity, growing up and finding your way.
This Monday was Calendar Girl and we were tasked with the choice of our favorite OTP (One True Pairing). I chose Stella and Michael from The Kiss Quotient!
On Tuesday Shanah began her alphabet Top 5 Tuesday! It’s trickier than it seems if you want to be a purist like me and if you have to find a title beginning with “E” I won’t choose “An Ember in the Ashes” or “The Easy …”. No “an” or “the” for me sir!
On Wednesday I raved about The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys as I can’t wait to read it!
If you want to know all about my favorite reads so far this year and fictional crushes, go read the Freak Out Book Tag!
And on Thursday I asked that very important question: Are you fed up with diversity in books?
On the blogosphere
Something you need to read if you are an aspiring writer or busy writing your first work!
Our fellow blogger Alexandra gave us really useful advices on how to create characters and how to create your story and plot!
And this week, two quizzes and games!
What type of YA revolution would you join asks Epic read
And for the game …would you rather…
Last parting word here. I have a friend in need of many cheering and support. She needs all the love right now as she is going through something terribly hard and sad. So this fun meme is for you T . Love you xx
That’s it for this Sunday! Now I will answer your comments and go visit your blogs 😉 . Do tell me how was your week!
Thanks for reading!
I didn’t get much visiting done last week either. I’m trying to catch up!
I hope the week running up to your holiday remains chill and you get off to a good start!
Don’t worry Nicci I am trying to catch up too!
Hope you get to relax as much as you can, Sophie! It’s also great to hear that your husband is getting better now. Happy reading!
Thank you so much Lashaan!
OMG, can I bunny too???
Of course Meeghan! We’ll bunny together LOL
Sounds like your life has been really crammed busy Sophie! It’s nice that you have a holiday coming soon. I enjoyed Storm and Fury even if it didn’t wow me. You’re such a great wonder woman!! ❤️
hahaha thanks dani! next time I cosplay I will borrow a short and crop top 😉
I enjoyed my three day mini vacay and I bet you are looking forward to some time off too! I hope you relax and enjoy!!!!

Thank goodness things are settling down. And just one more week until your holiday! The countdown is on. 🙂
All the best to your friend who needs encouragement. What a perfect meme. 🙂
Thank you Tanya!!!
I am happy that things are slowing down for you now that summer is here! You have had so much going on your blog lately that I am mesmerized by your ability to get things done! Radio Silence has been on my radar for a while and I am excited to give it a try as well. Have a great week! 🙂
Thank you so much !!!!
I LOVE THAT PAINTING! It’s so beautiful (and look so cool). Oh man, you’re so lucky you god Storm and Fury – I missed the sign up period becaues I was so busy 🙁
Oh honestly I bought Storm and Fury!
Adulting does suck some days, I think I’d like to be Wonder Woman for a day or two though, herversion kicks a@@
Have a great reading week
Hahaha yes adulting sucks indeed!!!
Awww I wanna bunny today today!! Glad you can put the wonder woman costume aside for a bit and relax! Hang in there-your holiday is almost here!
Buddy with me Samantha!!!
It’s great to be Wonder Woman, but we superheroines need a break from time to time, lol! Glad you’re getting a bit of one.
Love your bunny meme! 🙂
Hahaha glad that you love the bunny Rachel!
I hope you enjoy your week ahead and continue to have less meetings/things to do for the time being!! It’s always a plus when that happens. Also, yess, Radio Silence was pure brilliance!
Thank you Jessica!!!!
Yay for less stress! Glad things have relaxed a bit for you.
I loved Radio silence!
Two quizzes??? Gah you’ve outdone yourself! and one is a Three Dark crowns one ( I LOVE that books). I am off to do that one immediately haha!
Hahaha see I am spoiling you Greg!
Yay for only one more week until your holiday. I hope you enjoy your time off!
Thank you Suzanne!
Yay for holidays soon, this is so great! 🙂
I’m so happy you liked radio silence, it’s one of my favorite reads <3 I hope you'll have a fantastic week! <3
Thank you Marie!!
Wow, someone is a talented artist! I’m glad things are calming down for you- just in time for some great summer reads 🙂
Thank you Jacquie!
I am happy to hear you can finally take a breath. Ahhhh! Commuting really is a bit easier in the summer, when school is out. I just cannot allow myself to get used to it, because I know it will all vanish in September.
So you prefer to harden yourself not to be disappointed later Sam? LOL
Pretty much. Keep the expectations low
I’m glad your husband is better and you almost have holidays! I liked Storm and Fury a lot! And I love the drawing of Wonder Woman.
Genesis @ Whispering Chapters
hahaha Wonder Woman is the best 😉
