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

Happy Sunday!

This week has been relaxing as I still was on holiday!

Waking up late, binge reading The Afterlife Academy series, taking pictures for bookstagram (as we finally had some sun with a very cold weather) and eating with a friend.

It will be hard to wake up at 5 AM tomorrow morning!

This week I also got my first commission to paint book edges! I don’t usually sell my art (as I want it to feel like a hobby and I don’t want to pay added taxes) but when a new indie author contacted me asking if I could paint her book and feature it on my feed well I thought: why not?

If it can help her to reach a broader audience then I guess it’s also why I became a book blogger!

I made three different rough drafts and we will paint the one she prefers! More in the coming weeks I guess!

As for this week’s reels…

The first is me recommending some cosy fantasy.

And the second is about painting the edges of An Education in Malice!

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

I posted two reviews this week, both featuring vampires and both I totally recommend reading!

Thanks for reading!
