Today is Sunday, time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week in and out of the blog. As usual I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer .
As it’s the first Sunday of June, I’ll double it up with my May wrap-up.
In my private life
Well I got an unplanned hiatus from the blog this week as I got my second jab of Moderna and…was sick after!
My first shot went like a breeze with no side effects.
When I got my vaccine for the second time on Wednesday, I was feeling allright. The morning after, it was still going on splendidly but then around noon…I thought I would faint!
I have never fainted in my life but I felt all woozy all of a sudden. Then came the pain everywhere but no fever.
I sent a message to my boss and colleagues that I would go to sleep and see what would happen. After two hours I was back at work but still feeling way under the water!
My symptoms lasted 12 hours. And I told my mom I had forgotten what it felt to be sick as I am nearly never sick.
I had missed so much at work and in the house that I confess I didn’t post nor blog hopped until today!
My husband got his shot the day after and …he was way worse than I!
He had already been sick the first time but here, he was really unwell for more than 48 hours! Worse than the flu.
But hey, the good news is that in two weeks we’ll be fully protected!
This is a HUGE relief!
Also, my fitness club is finally reopening with a normal schedule so yay!
And last but not least, I booked a summer vacation of six days in Normandy today!!!
Yepee! Finally! I’ll be able to travel and go outside of my home!
I plan on walking a lot and visiting all the historical sites from WWII. First holiday with only my husband and I since the kids were born! I can’t wait 😀 And if my husband let me book everything because he is feeling low and was not interested in looking for anything, he surprised me right after I told him I had booked something with a “WE ARE GOING ON HOLIDAY!!!”.
I guess that helps improve his state of mind.

As I’ve said I only posted once last week, before my vaccine.
But this month was a total surprise as I have read 15 books!!!!! I reviewed only 13 of them but still. This is a huge month for me.
Here are my monthly favorites:
I discovered Caraval for the first time this month and I breezed through that series!
The Light of the Midnight Star by Rena Rossner was a total surprise and pure delight!
I love Glendy Vanderah’s books, she always takes me where I would never expect going!
The Shadow of the Gods was my first John Gwynne but certainly not my last!
This is probably my favorite of the month because Katherine Center is just “it” for me.
And as June is pride month, I’d like to recommend this book by a brand ne author who poured her soul into it and wrote something very very good given all the sensitive issues it packed!
Thanks for reading!
