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 today is the first Sunday of July, I’ll also talk about my favorite June books.
In my private life
This week I had a very exhausting week at work and had to draw a line in the sand because people were acting out but the bright side is thatit paid and things seem to go on the right track again!
The big news this week is my preparation to go to London and attend YALC!
I’ll be quite MIA in the coming two weeks but I’ll catch up when I can!
This time with my daughter, we decided to go a few days ahead and visit not only London but the Harry Potter studios and Oxford as well!
At YALC, I might skip Friday as there are not many authors I am interested in meeting that day but Saturday will certainly be interesting with Cassandra Clare attending!
On Sunday, I plan on meeting Alice Oseman again as well as Brigid Kemmerer, Katherine Webber and Juno Dawson.
It’s been years now that we didn’t go to London with the COVID so I am very excited!
I hope everything goes smoothly and I have alread y decided to be the odd one and to wear my mask on public transportation, at Harry Potter and at YALC as well, except maybe to take pictures.
So no Sunday posts for two weeks to come and probably no Top Ten Tuesday as well.
Also the amazing news of the week is that my daughter passed all her exams and will now begin her third year at university! So yay!
And this afternoon I am going to the theater to watch Elvis! So yay!
I have read 11 books in June and I have three favorites at least!
The Winners by Fredrik Backman was a masterpiece. His writing is outstanding and his study of the human soul amazing!
The Change by Kirsten Miller was an ode to feminism and a mix of thriller, woman fiction, urban fantasy and many more!
The Silence that Binds Us by Joanna Ho truly deserves more hype! That YA debut talks about heavy topics like grief, racism, immigration and is a cross between The Hate U Give, With the Fire on High (with all the food) and A Very Large Expanse of Sea! Just read it and then talk about it because it deserves to be talked about!
Thanks for reading!
Sorry to hear about the rough week at work, but hooray for the getaway to London! And kudos for choosing to stay masked on public transport. I would be doing the same. Why not err on the side of caution? I can’t wait to hear about your trip, Sophie!
Well I hope you loved what you heard so far Tanya 😉
Your upcoming trip sounds amazing, I hope you’ll have a great time at YALC and in London!
I did Lindsey thank you!
I’d love to visit the HP studios and YALC! What a fun trip you’ll have, Sophie. And congrats to your daughter on passing her exams!
Thank you Teri!
I hope you have a wonderful trip! I look forward to hearing about YALC. 🙂
I hope that you have a fantastic time at YALC! I would love to be able to go someday and I look forward to hearing all about it! 🙂
I did have a fantastic time!
Oh have a good time and hopefully you’ll be able to share lots of experiences with us later! Cassandra Clare, Alice Oseman…sounds like fabulous guests. Oxford would be wonderful too I’ll imagine.
Thank you Greg!
Have fun and stay safe at YALC, and hope you take lots of photos for us to look at. Meanwhile, congrats to your daughter on passing all her exams. That’s fantastic news.
Thank you Alex!!!
Have a great time at YALC and the Harry Potter studios sound so cool! I’m jealous for sure!
Thank you and I will!
That is exciting, Sophie! I hope you and your daughter has a most amazing time. Safe travels!
Thank you Sam!
YALC sounds like so much fun. I hope you enjoy meeting all of these authors. I met Cassie Clare a few years ago and she’s really nice. 🙂 Have fun in London!
Have fun in London for YALC! 😀 I’m sure it’ll be a blast! 😀
I am sure too Lashaan!
Awesome! I hope you have an amazing time on your trip and stay well. I’m just not ready or I’d be going somewhere this week. Congrats to your daughter.

Have a great time in London! I’m only a little bit jealous!! I didn’t know there were theater shows of Elvis now but sounds lovely, I love his music!
Wow, I am jealous! Going to London sounds so wonderful. My eldest son spent a college semester there a few years ago, and it changed everything for him. Now he has been to several countries and is settled in Prague.
Have a wonderful and safe time in London!!!
Congratulations to your daughter. I love Harry Potter Studios but we haven’t been in ages. There are a couple more exhibits that have been done since we last went. We need to wait for our son to be a bit older before we go back.
I love Cassandra Clare’s books so that will be exciting!
Have a great week!
