Hi deard friends!
Today is Sunday time to look back on my week and have a little chitchat with you all! As usual I am linking back to Kimberly’s Sunday Post @caffeinatedbookreviewer
In my personal life first
When I was in high school my English teacher (the best teacher I have ever had) told us that Brittish people love talking about the weather when they meet you for the first time. You know to make polite conversation.
Well I love Brittish people and I have lived several months in London so I can say that today I will “do my Brittish” and talk about the weather!
For days now it’s been really windy here. Like storm wind. And this Sunday they predict guts of wind to reach 100 km/h (more than 62 Miles/hour)!
It is very hard to sleep with all the noise and my daughter and I have been known this week for sleeping on the couches as the living room is on the ground floor. One night when I moved from my bedroom to the couch I nearly crushed my daughter choosing the biggest couch! I had not seen she was already asleep on it 😀
Let’s hope that by next Sunday our rooftop will have made it unscathed!
The rest of the week has been pretty uneventful for a change as the kids are on holiday for one week. Many people went skiing in France or Austria and commuting has been bliss: no fighting to get a seat!
On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)
I have reviewed three books and read two more books!
Covet was a really emotional and fantastic read! 4,5 stars and just so you know the author made me face one of my huge triggers!
I gave all the stars to Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark T Sullivan! It was an audiobook. That story inspired by the true story of a young Italian on WWII was fantastic and the narrator was brilliant! Yes I am slowly warming up to audiobooks when they are like memoirs, true stories etc. On a side note, I got a private message on Goodreads from another reader who pointed out inaccuracies in the story. Mark Sullivan would have taken liberties, especially concerning General Leyers role. It was really interesting conversing with her even if I kept my review as I had reviewed the story that I listened to, not the history!
A List of Cages by Robin Roe has been such an emotional yet beautiful YA story! I read it after having heard so many of you raving about that book! It was a 5 stars review.
On the meme side I nearly forgot to post my “Calendar Girls” post about strong women! February flew by and I didn’t realize it was the first Monday of March!
We are out of Hogwarts houses in our Top 5 Tuesday and Shanah asked us to show our favorite book spines!
As spines are never displayed on Amazon or Goodreads the only way to show them was by taking pictures of actual spines! That’s when I explained the difference between a pic in artificial light and in real light.
I admit that I love the discussion posts and the reactions, comments they gather! This week I asked what you were looking for in blogs. What are you expecting from bloggers? Do you want them neutral or opinionated? Blogging about books only or something else?
Before we part ways, here are some quizzes and interesting posts!
Quizzes for boys and girls here!
