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

Last Sunday when I wrote my weekly post, I was talking about concert and whatnot. Little did I know that on that same evening I would get a call from one of my best friends husbands announcing the news of her death.

Even if I knew she had terminal cancer and her days were numbered, I didn’t expect it so soon…

She was one of my closest friends and this past week has been really hard. The burial happened on Thursday, just with family and close friends.

These last days I haven’t been able to focus, even reading a book was difficult.

I know I didn’t interact or even answered to comments but I had little heart to do so.

My friend was brave and she enjoyed life to the fullest, using her last months to do what she loved most: traveling.

In honor to her memory, I intend to do just that: enjoy life, do what I like most.

That means painting, reading, making silly videos, traveling, going to concerts and exhibitions..everything that feeds my soul.

I know that wherever she is now, she’ll wholeheartedly approve.

So in that spirit of living life to the fullest, this is a silly video 😉

April wrap-up (click on the graphic to read the post)

I only read six books in April and that’s a record low for me BUT nearly all my books were excellent!

So here you go with my favorites.

The Women by Kristin Hannah was brilliant and devastating. The audio narrated by Julia Whelan was of course perfect!

After reading an historical fiction, Empire of the Damned by Jay Kristoff threw me in a dark and gothic fantasy universe alongside badass Celene, Gabriel de Leon and Dior!

Then I came back with a brilliant thriller, false identities and cat and mouse game with The First Lie Wins by Ashley Elston.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I am so sorry your friend went quicker than expected, but how wonderful that she got to spend that time traveling. It’s a beautiful tribute to her that you plan to adopt her ways of enjoying life to its fullest. ((HUGS))

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss, Sophie! Even when you know it’s terminal I think you still don’t expect it. Especially when it’s someone in your age group!
