Hi Guys!

This week was slow and relaxing. I feel like I have less and less energy in me. I think it’s because of pregnancy.

Yesterday I had a lovely day with my friend Monika. We went into Chinese restaurant for lunch, and after that in a really nice caffee for Pumpkin Spice Late.
I had best intention to take pictures and then I simply forgot. I guess we’ll have to go back at some point!

Today I plan to watch a Christmas movie on tv, answer to every comment on my blog and to finish a book I’m reading.
So I guess it will be a slow, relaxing Sunday.

Monday: In Movie Monday I talked about A Christmas Detour

Meeting Katherine Arden + Giveaway: #Win a signed copy of The Bear and the Nightingale #Giveaway #Winter #Fantasy #BookLovers

Katherine Arden and me on book signing in Croatia

This post is long overdue, but as I already said many times before: better late then never.

Back in April Katherine Arden visited Croatia and had promotion of her Winternight series.
Arden’s books are very popular in my country so having a foreign author promoting her work was a big deal. Naturally, I wanted to go.

I went with my friend Monika who adores Winternight Trilogy (and who introduced me to these books).

It was really interesting to hear Katherine talk about her journey to become published author and how she got ideas for her books, but also how her own life reflected on her writing.
She also talked briefly about her on going middle grade series Small Spaces.

In the end there was book signing where she took some time to chat with everyone who came and thank them.

It was a nice experience and I wish I could participate in book events and authors meets and greets more often.
If I lived in UK or US, I definitely would because I feel like there are book signings all the time.

Hi Guys,

We had beautiful, sunny weather Friday and Saturday, and since Sunday is also sunny, when this post will be posted I will probably be in a coffee shop with my friend.

I survived the working week, and yesterday my sister came for a visit, because my birthday will be this Monday.

We were hanging all day, and we also went to cinema together, to watch Dumbo.
Here is the pic of us waiting for the movie to start (we were first one in the hall):

Also, when we’re at birthdays, I realized I forgot to mention in my last Sunday post that on March 21st we celebrated GiGi’s first birthday, so here is one picture of him to salute:
