Weekly Book Wrap-Up #72 – Bittersweet Mother´s Day

Saturday, May 11, 2019
With the Weekly Book Wrap-Up, I give you a bit of an insight into all the new books that have arrived at my place.

No matter if I won a giveaway, got approved for a reviewer´s copy, an ARC or just bought one myself. Everything that I add to my shelves, in what way ever and read during the past week or am still reading, I will write about it. And maybe I tell you a bit about the upcoming things on Inkvotary, that is if I don´t forget it and have something to share with you *smile*


I am linking up with Tynga´s Reviews / Reading Reality and Caffeinated Reviewer and hope you´ll have fun reading it and maybe get the one or the other book inspiration.



Stacking The Shelves #72


During the past few days, I received an RC from Fischer TB. Due to some other things, I am barely able to actually buy books. Therefore, my behavior on that front is pretty decent at the moment.

Reviewer´s Copy







Sunday Post #29


I am writing this to ALL MOTHER´S because for some of us, this day is a bittersweet one. Not every mother has a living, breathing and healthy child at home. Some of us are mothers of a stillborn child. Some of us lost a child shortly after birth through the so-called “crib death” or “cot death”. Some of us lost their child because it was born without a brain.

No matter how it happened. Every woman who had to suffer, to endure such a loss one way or the other I still consider a MOTHER. For me, it doesn´t matter if your child is alive and growing every day, week, month or year.

We keep those children in our hearts and souls. They are never forgotten. To every woman who finds herself in the above-written words:

Today is also YOUR (bittersweet) Mother´s Day.



I am (still) reading




Happy reading

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.

  2. So true about Mother's Day. I know people close to me who've gone through miscarriages- they're still moms. :)

    1. It seems like yesterday although it happened over ten years ago. Some things a woman never forgets.

  6. Thank you for saying what you did about Mother's Day. It is also bittersweet for me due to a miscarriage (although I do have other children), and losing my own mother a few years ago. It's hard to let others celebrate me when all I want to do is remember my mom.

    Two Dark Reigns was a fun book. I hope you enjoy it.

    1. I tried to write something different, with a bit more light in it. But all that came out were those words. Glad you liked my post.

    1. We might never understand it, but it seems that some children are not destined to live in this world - for whatever reason. Sad, but as long as we keep them in our hearts, they are still there. Thank you for stopping by.

  8. That is so true about Mother's Day. I'm lucky that I do have one child but I'll always remember the one I lost when I had a miscarriage years ago.

    1. I think, no matter why nature took them from us, they still remain in our hearts. And that is good. Thanks for stopping by.
