Life 🌸

I can’t believe it has already been so long since I’ve published my first Sunday Post. I knew that posting every week would be challenging, but I’d expect to do it at least every month, so that’s a goal to keep in mind.
Apart from that, it’s business as usual here on my end, juggling between work, uni, and teaching classes in the evenings. Exhausting! At least, Summer is coming and it’s super sunny out there. I also took my *non-Portuguese* husband to a beautiful book store here in Portugal. Despite the references to the author-who-shouldn’t-be-named, it’s such a lovely place to visit. For those who want to visit, it’s called Livraria Lello.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms in the US and other countries where Mother’s Day is today. Here in Portugal, it was last week. We had a lovely day with the family (and we also enjoyed some cake!) 🙂


April Wrap Up 📖

I was able to finish reading four books in April, though I’m still behind on reviewing. The Marriage Secret‘s review is already available here on the blog and I won’t be publishing The Whole Truth‘s review because it was quite negative, unfortunately. I quite enjoyed The Unhoneymooners, just what I needed for my sunny lunch breaks.


May TBR 📖

Trying to keep my goals small and realistic for May, since, as per usual, I’ve purchased way more books than I’m able to finish! I already finished The Woman Who Stole My Life last week (not a good review either, sorry!). I’m currently reading The Man I Never Met (ARC courtesy of NetGalley). I also want to finish the Shadow and Bone trilogy and read the new Harley Quinn book from DC Icons series.


Currently Watching 📺

I finished watching Minx on HBO Max, a surprisingly entertaining TV series set around the second wave of feminism, following the dream of a young woman: publishing her own feminist magazine. There are many challenges, struggles, and even compromises, all with an irreverent and humorous tone. Recommended!

In 1970s Los Angeles, an earnest young feminist joins forces with a low-rent publisher to create the first erotic magazine for women.


Currently Playing 🎮

It’s funny how I alternate between my gaming slumps and reading slumps. It was a slow gaming month for me, but that didn’t stop me from purchasing some new games for my Nintendo Switch. Currently playing Final Fantasy XII, alternating with some cozy gaming.


How was your week? What are your bookish and non-bookish news?

  1. Ow yummm! Those cakes look amazing! And that bookstore looks great.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  2. That looks like a wonderful bookstore. I always love finding a new place like that! And The Unhoneymooners looks fun. I remember seeing that one in the bookstore and loving that bright cover- plus it just sounds good too. 🙂

    THanks for visiting my blog.

  3. What a wonderful bookstore. I’m jealous that you live in Portugal. I’d love to visit there. It’s so beautiful. Thank you for following me on Twitter and stopping by my blog. 🙂
