In my private life
Well I don’t know if I must say happy Sunday really because today, I am scared and the world does not seem very rosy to me.
For three days, nearly four now, my husband has been glued to the TV to follow the invasion of Ukraine by Russia.
As I finished not so long a go “I Must Betray You” by Ruta Sepetys talking about communist regime and tyranny , “The Last Bookshop of London” by Madeline Martin talking about life in London under the WWII and German bombing AND “The Last Green Valley” by Mark T Sullivan recounting the exodus of German farmers from Ukraine when the Russian chased the Nazis….I don’t feel really good right now.
Sorry to talk about politics on a blog that is mostly a book blog but as this is the part where I speak of my private life, I chose to talk about it because I am really stressed out. Think about cramps in the belly and bad sleep stress.
I am also indignant on behalf of all people living in Ukraine. And I am also talking with Romanian friends who are scared as well.
So, sorry to be a Debbie Downer this time but I had to vent …
If you have any tips on how to regain my serenity, aside living far away from the TV and radio which I am currently doing, they are welcome!
On the bright side, yesterday I books my hotel and the Eurostar planning for my trip to YALC London with my daughter this summer!
That was something to take my mind off of the world’s events and a ray of light too!
I can’t wait to meet favorite authors!
On the blog these past two weeks (click on the graphic to read the post).
I managed to read 6 books in two weeks, even if I have only reviewed two so far.
Thanks for reading!
