Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, post a recap of the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
On the Blog & Real Life:
I hated this week, so far in 2016 this is not my favorite week. On Sunday my hosting company got attacked by a hacker and it pretty much put every blog in their servers down. It was a nightmare. 5 days I had no blog and even now it’s still a little glitchy. My blog came back on Tuesday night only to go down again and return on Wednesday morning in 2015. My blog time traveled back a year with my old header and all my old posts. On Thursday my wonderful hosting company was able to find my backup and return my blog to normal. I don’t fault them for what happened, it sucked, but I am happy it is fixed. The guy who owns the company worked his butt off to get everyone back up and running and pretty much updated us around the clock even though they are still having issues, I am not sure he slept.
The beginning of this year is starting off bad for celebs, I was devastated to hear that Alan Rickman passed away. I adored him as the Sheriff, Metatron and of course Professor Snape. Robin Hood just so happens to be one of my favorite movies even with Kevin Costner losing his accent half way through. He was an amazing actor and how so much more to give. He will be truly missed.
With my blog being down, I am way behind on everything, apparently I don’t handle major stress like I thought and pretty much bailed out on life entirely. So this week I accomplished nothing, which now only sets me back even more. So just note that Because Reading will be a little slow on posts until I can catch up. Not how I wanted 2016 to start, but it is what it is.
On Friday, after banging my head on the desk repeatedly trying to figure out how to organize myself and then taking a quick ride to Staples, I had an idea. Something that will work for both Limabean Designs and even a new post for the blog. I am still working out all the details but Yay, I can still come up with ideas when my head is full of chaos. 😉
I sadly had my first DNF of 2016, I am super bummed about it but I was currently reading The Study in Charlotte and I heard awesome things about it but I got to about 20% after a week of trying and just had to stop. I just wasn’t connecting with the characters, their relationship just seemed so forced making it hard to really get the story. I usually don’t review DNF but since this is a My TBR List book I will have a short review for it at the end of the month.
See this was a crappy week!
