✿ What else I've been up to this week ✿

1. Edelweiss/NetGalley. I'm so excited because finally (finally) some of the book requests that I've been dying to get accepted, are being accepted. I've been blogging on-and-off for almost two years now, but really started to get the hold of it this spring. And I think all the blogging, reading, reviewing, and networking is paying off, because publishers like HarperCollins and Penguin has finally started to accept my requests. And that makes me equally happy and humbled

2. Meadows Festival. I absolutely love small, annual city festivals, and Edinburgh's Meadows Festival is here! It started yesterday and continues until tonight. There are free gigs, stalls selling different merchandises, food, and I think some junior football games too. Fun!

3.  Going home. I booked flight tickets on July, so I can go visit my parents for a month. I haven't seen them since Christmas, so it should be really nice. And to spend a part of the summer in my childhood home is just one of the most loveliest things ever. Can't wait!

✿ Have a lovely Sunday! ✿


  1. Congratulations on finally being accepted for digital review copies! It's always the best feeling to receive an email saying you've been accepted. :)
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

    1. Thank you, and it really is! Makes always feel you giddy. :)

  2. Glad you're getting approved for books from Penguin and HarperCollins! Have a great week!

    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

    1. Thank you! And nice of you to step by :)

  3. Congrats on the approvals, and enjoy the reads! And the festival sounds great- I always enjoy wandering around and trying different foods. :)

    Going home is always a great feeling. Have a super week!

    1. Thank you! :) It has been a really nice week, I hope the same is true with you!

  4. I completely understand what you mean on the approval front. I get ridiculously depressed when I get a NetGalley rejection. And often it's nothing to do with me. It's because of territory rights etc (I'm in Australia), but still....

    1. Yeah, I know the frustration, especially when you're really looking forward to some specific book and then they reject your request. Thanks for stopping by :)


You can't see me, but I'm totally doing my happy dance as I read your comment!
