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

Happy Sunday!

I have three weeks off work!!!

And the first thing I did yesterday was sleep for 10 hours! It never happens to me. But that’s precisely the reason why, since decades now, I take three weeks off in November: because I am always tired and grumpy and slightly moody in November.

I just want to see daylightt, something nearly impossible when working with the short days.

I plan on cleaning the house and the garden and sort a lot of things in the house. I foresee many visits to the recycling center!

And of course, there is YALC in two weeks!

I was stressing because they planned railway strikes in November but they should stop on the day where I am meant to take the Eurostar! Fingers crossed!

That aside, the weather has been positively awful this week with lots of rain and clouds and it’s forecast to stay wet for the next week at least. Sigh….

As usual, I am leaving you with two reels this week.

The first is about Sorcery of Thorns because after my third read, I am still enamored with that book and I discover new details every time! This time, I realised how Margaret Rogerson’s writing is very vivid and whimsical, to the point that I couldn’t help seeing the story like a Disney movie!

And the second reel is another clothes transition that I wanted to try! I find filming these transitions so good and like creating magic! Expect more next week!

I published two reviews this week, two ARCs. Usually Penguin Random House International sent physical copies to international bloggers but recently they are just sending e-Galleys. But hey, we still get to read the book for free so that’s still a win!

Better Hate than Never by Chloe Liese was a 3 stars read for me.

Check & Mate by Ali Hazelwood met all my expectations and it’s another win from that author!

Thanks for reading!

  1. 3 week off sounds lovely! I only get 3 weeks all year so I rarely can take more than 1 week at a time. I loved Check & Mate, too! I hope that you have a great week.

  2. I hope your vacation is amazing. I am always jealous of how much time off European’s get. The last time I have three weeks was when I was a teacher (summer break). Fingers crossed the rail strike doesn’t interfere with your trip as well. Safe travels and enjoy your time off.

  3. The videos are great – I particularly love the clothes one!! And what a lovely long time for a holiday:). No wonder you slept for such a long time! Have a great week.
