As this is the first Sunday of November, I’ll also use it as a look back on my reading month!
In my private life
First, I am sorry to have been utterly silent this whole week but I finally caught COVID…
My son was feeling poorly on Monday and by Tuesday he tested positive to COVID. Then it was my husband’s turn and finally, my own test came back positive on Thursday morning.
I was just…miserable, there is no other words, hurting everywhere and totally exhausted. I must have slept 22 or 20 hours a day…
But the bright side is that none of us had serious symptoms (no cough, no difficulties to breathe) and that I already felt much better by Saturday!
My husband is the one that felt the worse, is still not totally ok and has lost his taste and smell! He tried sniffing pepper mint oil, Vicks, anything but…to no avail!
Another bright side too is that I’ll be back to normal to go to YALC next Friday (I have my doctor’s absolution).
But with all that I was unable to reply to a single comment to my planned posts nor blog hop!
I couldn’t even read when I was sick as I read three pages and promptly fell asleep.
Now I’ll begin to slowly catch up with you all!
It’s the first year we didn’t ask for the vaccine but I’ll go ask for it next year!
As I plan a lot of things, I was able to post two reels that I hope you’ll enjoy, full of magic tricks again 😉
And this second one is a dream come true: fly like a super hero!
October wrap -up (click on the graphic to read the post)
I read 12 books in October and have four big favorites!
The first is The Luminaries by Susan Dennard. I waited a long time before listeing to that book and I am glad as the sequel is just two days away from now!
The Shadow Cabinet by Juno Dawson is a sequel and a masterpiece! If you love stories with witches and morally grey characters, just go for that series!
Then we have a mind blowing thriller with None of this is True by Lisa Jewell! I want more thriller/crimes like that! If you have recommendations, be my guest!
And last but not least, the French translation of If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio blew me away! The best dark academia I have read so far!
Thanks for reading and for being patient with me when I catch up with you all!
