As it’s the first Sunday of April, I’ll also double up with a monthly wrap-up.
In my private life
I told you last Sunday that my workweek had been Hell. Well this week was better luckily and it was a short workweek too! So yay!
To have some brighter perspective, I began preparing my trip to London with my daughter in July.
Usually we go to attend YALC (Young Adult Litterature Convention) and YALC happens at the same time as the London ComicCon at the Olympia London.
So as soon as I saw the dates for the July ComicCon, we booked our Eurostar and hotel.
This time YALC announced it would be organized at the same time as the November ComicCon.
Oh well, we decided we would go twice to London!
That means that we have six days to roam the capital city and …more!
The plan is to also see Cambridge as we visited Oxford last summer and if the weather is warm, go to Brighton as well!
So far I also have booked a musical “Les Misérables” following the advice of a colleague who is a huge fan of the musicals! I booked the best places (according to said colleague) and that cost me an arm and a leg (400 EUR !!!). Well I know why I endure all that at work now right? 😉
But after seeing a friend barely 54 having cancer and knowing we’ll have to work longer to get our retirement, I have decided that CARPE DIEM is my new motto and as long as I have the means, I’ll treat myself and my family!
Now onto preparing my holiday with my husband! I will come up with several options (by car as I have fear of flying) and so far I am torn between:
-roadtrip to Scotland (Brussels Edimburg by car is 11 hours so that’s doable);
-visit Cornwall (6 hours from Brussels);
-North Croatia (warmer but also a two days trip to get there);
-Normandy or some other place in France (the easiest for us).
More next Sunday probably!
As usual, I am leaving you with some Instagram reels.
The first is matching the books with a song. And these are books with fights, battle, adventure and heroisme!
The second is me gushing about a special book from my favorite author Amy Harmon!
And the last is about me being irresponsible and buying the whole series before reading the first book…
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the title)
Well I posted three reviews for three different genres: adult romance, adult fantasy and historical fiction. I also found a book that will be in my top 5 this year alongside Hell Bent: The Adventures of Amina Al Sirafi by Shannon Chakraborty. And if you love audiobooks, go for it!
Things We Hide from the Light by Lucy Score was a good contemporary romance with a sexy sheriff suffering from memory loss and happening in a small town.
And The Spitfire Girls by Soraya M. Lane showed me some new facts about WWII and the important role women played in that war! Aslo an audiobook!
That’s it! Thanks for reading!
