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 . 

As this is the first Sunday of July, you’ll get my best June reading wrap-up.

In my private life

Happy Sunday!

The great and good news this week was that my daughter passed all her exams! She has now her bachelor degree and can enjoy her holiday before beginning what will normally be her first master next year!

We are very proud of her!

Then I am finalizing my preparations for my London trip next week with my daughter! You won’t have a Sunday post next weekend even if I have planned some posts ahead.

This week I was very suprised to get a mail from our London host (this time we went for renting a studio instead of a hotel room) asking that I email them a photo of my passport and a photo of my credit card!!!

NO WAY would I do that as these are sensitive informations and mail is absolutely not a secure channel. But after contacting, the platform from which I had booked our studio, Booking people told me not to worry.

And indeed, I soon got an apology mail from our host telling me that they understood and that I just had to show the ID and card at check in.

And as usual, I am sharing some reels with you…

This one of my latest book edge painting…

And this one for some of the books that I have but haven’t read yet!!!

June Wrap-Up

I have read only 10 books in June. It was a slower month but I had some great reads nonetheless!

Here are my favorites (click on the graphic to read the post)

For pride month, Farrell Covington and the Limits of Style by Paul Rudnick was an excellent choice! Poignant and acidic , darkly funny too!

A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham was a very efficient psychological thriller! It truly was smoke and mirrors.

Love, Theoretically by Ali Hazelwood is like comfort food: sweet, rewarding and warm. I adored the smart banter in that one!

And my favorite this month, very eye opening, was The Bandit Queens by Parini Shroff.

  1. Congrats to your daughter! And you did everything right, you can never be too careful with your ID and financial info these days. During COVID when doctors offices weren’t allowed contact with objects and anyone, I wouldn’t even read my credit card number to a receptionist in the waiting room because there were people standing around, I was like can I go to the privacy of my car in the parking lot and call you from there with the number? πŸ˜€

  2. I’d have been nervous about the passport and credit card also, Sophie. Glad you checked into it. I also enjoyed The Bandit Queens – adored those women!

  3. Congrats to your daughter! That is a wonderful accomplishment! Enjoy your trip (I wouldn’t have sent a picture of that either-talk about a way to get your identity stolen!)

  4. Congratulations to your daughter on completing her Bachelor’s Degree, Sophie! The edge art on Heart of the Sun Warrior is gorgeous! I am eager to read The Bandit Queen and am glad you enjoyed it. You must be so excited about your upcoming trip! I hope you have a wonderful and safe time.

  5. Congratulations to your daughter! I cannot believe that they asked you to send them a copy of your credit card and passport. I wonder how many people have just done it without questioning anything. Enjoy your trip next week!

  6. Congratulations to your daughter! That request from your host was insane. At least they understood when you would not comply. I hope all goes well with your trip, and that you have an amazing time.
