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

Happy Sunday!

First I want to say sorry as I didn’t reply to comments this week! I blog hopped a few times but had no energy to open the computer to reply to comments by the end of my workdays.

I will do just that this afternoon!

Second, I am busy preparing my trip to Paris nexr weekend with my mom! So you won’t have any Sunday post next week. And I am also reading all the informations to be the best assistant Penelope Douglas has ever had at a book event!

It will be an 8 AM to 5 PM job, certainly extremely busy but I can’t wait!!!

Also, remember when I said that my daughter would go for one semester to Sacramento next year?

Well she is already thinking of having a second master at Berkeley! Oh boy, needless to say that without a serious scholarship we won’t agree because studies in the US are so much more expensive than here!

I think each year here, tuition, school books, lodging etc costs us 8.000 EUR. So basically peanuts compared to one year at a university in the US! And yet it’s a big cost for our salaries. So yeah….

We want the best for her career but we don’t want loans at our age! I guess if she has the grades for she’ll have to find a golden scholarship!

OK now it’s time for some funny reels!

The first is me warning people not to mess with bookworm stuff else….

And the second is about hoarding things we love….

On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)

This week I posted two reviews for books I really loved!

What the River Knows was amazing and yet it made me suffer!

I discovered the Regency Dragons series thanks to Maddalena and I loved the second book Claws and Contrivances!

Thanks for reading! Now I’ll go reply to this past week’s comments and blog hop!

  1. Yeah college is crazy expensive here. I only recommend it if its something like a lawyer or doctor. Something more essential. Otherwise there are ways to have jobs or careers like trade school that are way more beneficial. So as long as its something good for her career, but if it won’t help her much maybe look into other options.

    Hope you have a wonderful week darling! And yay for a trip to Paris.

  2. I know you’ll have a wonderful time in Paris, Sophie! Hoping your daughter lucks into a scholarship. Tuition costs here are ridiculous and keep increasing every year.

  3. Berkley is very expensive. My daughter’s friends is getting her masters there, but she has a fellowship. It takes care of the expense. I hope you have an amazing and safe trip and will be looking forward to hearing all about it.

  4. Oh what! That is cheap.. my tuition had been 6,000 $CAN, for a year just tuition & books- I had two years. And without housing/food/etc that was provided as ai stayed with my parents. (And I’m in the lowest as I didn’t went to university, only college. And only 2yrs!)

    Ohh how exciting!! I hope you enjoy France !

  5. I hear you regarding the cost of higher education… Fingers crossed your daughter gets the grades she needs for a scholarship! And if you enjoy the Stephanie Burgis mix of regency + dragons, the Jane Austen’s Dragons series by Maria Grace is also huge fun and done really well. The bonus – the books are on KU, so aren’t an arm and a leg to read… In the meantime, have a great week:)).

  6. Lol I love your reels! I don’t know where you are in Europe, but I’ve always thought it’s better to study somewhere where higher education is free/cheap because it feels like they actually care that people are educated and it’s not a money grab. Good for your daughter if she manages to get a scholarship though, it would be a great experience for her either way!
