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
I am on holiday for three weeks! OK it’s a staycation where I’ll hibernate most of the time but it feels so great!!
I’ll do things at my own pace between appointments with doctors (nothing serious don’t worry), hairdresser, beautician (for once) and changing my tires!
Some craft will probably be involved too as I want to revamp my bookstagram account but am still undecided on what I want to do. I took some pictures but I am not convinced…
Well maybe I could ask for your opinion!
What do you think of these kind of pictures? Too dark? Too bloody? Love it? Hate it? Be honest and don’t sugarcoat please, I’d rather have it all out!
I am not sure it won’t get boring after some time for people to see this so what do you think? I’d go with one on two pictures being this dark red and the other being on the white side.
I am trying to decide between that dark background or a woodcabin feel with gnomes and maybe small animals. In the grey and golden tones? I don’t know… HELP! 😉
Also I know I have lots of comments to reply to but my work week has been insane! With even one day when I had zero connection and had to look my hand written notes to do some old fashioned brainstorming. I was becoming crazy as I a am not used to doing nothing or things at a lazy pace!
For those waiting for the life with Robin Roe, I don’t think it will happen. She asked me to reschedule twice because of health problems for her and then her mom and I think it’s a little bit complicated and worrisome at the moment.

Well I wrote three reviews this week and I already have four more to come next week!
And a quite unpopular opinion for All of Us Villains!
That’s it for this week! Thanks for reading!
Hope you’ll have a wonderful vacation Sophie! I’m off for one week next week too and also planning to hibernate haha 🙂
I love the pictures and I think it’ll look especially great if you can combine them with lighter pictures too, so your account would be like a mix of the two.
I hope you hibernated all your content Lindsey 😉
Sounds as though you need a vacation! I like the deep red for these, but maybe not too many? How about a snowy forest for Christmas?
I think not too many will be the key indeed Jacquie! Thank you for your feedback.
I am so envious of your 3 week staycation! Oh the things I could get done. Hope you manage to be productive while also enjoying some down time. Love the book photos but I think I like your other idea even better (lighter cabin feel with gnomes). I’m sure either will be a hit.
Thank you for your feedback Tanya!!! Have a great week.
Yay for a staycation! Sometimes those are the best for rest and a recharge 🙂
I love the idea of a staycation! I just want to have some rest and stay home right now. Things have been hectic. Hope you get some rest and relaxation and maybe a night out in your own hometown for some fun too!
Thank you Rachel! I hope you’ll have a quiet week!
Hope you enjoy your staycation! I personally really like the first one, but I also love dark themes – the first one does feel there’s a better contrast though, so the attention is on the book. The second one the cover seems to match the background, so my attention is unfortunately drawn toward’s the gnome beard honestly (which is probably not what you want, haha)
Nop that’s not what I want LOL. Thank you for the feedback Sophia! <3
I love staycations! I hope you enjoy yours so much and get lots of reading and sleeping done! 😀 Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Thank you Jennielyse!
Wow three weeks of staycation sounds like heaven!! I like your IG photos. I don’t think it would get boring if you change up the little things you have in the picture.
Thank you for your input Jen!
I think a couple of different setups for your pics would be beneficial. For me, the first one is the stronger pic because of the contrast – light colored cover on dark background shows it off well. The 2nd one is a darker cover and would show better against a lighter background plus I feel like there’s too much accessorizing in the 2nd image. Is the focus on the book or the doodads? Just my thoughts. Instagram pics are challenging – you want to stand out, but if it’s about the book, make sure the book is the focus. All this opinion from a woman who doesn’t post on IG, because, who has the time to take all these photos???? 🙂
No no it is very helpful! What you are saying about light books on dark background is absolutely true! And I realise that most of my books are dark colors so that might be a problem. Thank you for that great feedback!
oh awesome to have 3 weeks in a staycation. I hope it is very restful for you with plenty of great ideas and reading.
Anne – Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post
Thank you Anne!
I’m no help at all because I love all the pictures you do
Thank you Stephanie!
Have a great staycation! I like the first picture a lot- I think Funkos and flowers add a lot to a shot.
Thank you Greg!
I love the pics! I can see your concern though it might be too dark. Maybe mixing it up would ok? Enjoy your time off. I’m jealous!
Thank you for the feedback Samantha!
I hope you have a wonderful staycation. I am here for whatever you do with gnomes. I love them!
I love gnomes too Sam LOL
Love having a staycation. I am doing one of those in a couple of weeks and I am really excited to just relax and get some things done that I normally don’t have time for. I am loving the Instagram photos and I think a woodsy theme would be great and will look great with all the special editions of books you have!
Thank you for your feedback Renee!
A staycation sounds wonderful! I like the pictures! Here’s my SP: https://bonniereadsandwrites.com/2022/10/30/sundaypost-football-noahs-ark-and-tomatoes/
Thank you for your feedback!
I hope you enjoy your time off!
I think I will!
I like the picture on the left best.
I love the dark red Sophie and Christmas is coming up so it has a Christmasy feel! Hooray for 3 weeks off! I’m jealous!
Well you just had one week Caro LOL
It’s not long enough! I need a week off to recover from my week off!!!
