Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week .Β I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years byΒ Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewerΒ .Β 

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! πŸ˜‰

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!

  1. Hope you’ll have a wonderful vacation Sophie! I’m off for one week next week too and also planning to hibernate haha πŸ™‚
    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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)

  5. 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???? πŸ™‚

    1. 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!

  6. 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!
