THE TELEVISION TAG

ttt.png

I was tagged by Ivy @Ivy’s Well Used Library Card long long time ago. And now I’m finally here to do it! I’m actually supposed to be sleeping already because my sleep is cut short for this night. It’s currently 8:30PM here and I’m supposed to be at the stables at 2AM and 4AM and then start the normal day at the stables at 6AM. We have two mares that are possibly going to give birth during the night so I took the two last watches. If this makes any sense. 😀

TOP 5 TUESDAY (#54) : BOOKS I PREDICT WILL BE 5 STARS

T5T

Hey guys! It has been a long while since my last post. I haven’t really even read anything since that. I don’t know what happened, but I managed to lost my Sleeping Giants book at home. Can’t find it anywhere. 😒 So that put me in a kind of slump because I wanted to finish it and didn’t want to start anything new. But since I can’t find it, I guess I will start something else now…
I’m also working at my school’s stable this week. Which means I’m away from home this whole week and will get back at Sunday. Everyone said that “take it as a vacation!”. Well let me tell you, I cried my eyes out last night when I arrived. Even though my kids can be very exhausting every day, it’s still super hard to be away.
But then there is also the fact that I get really anxious around people I don’t know at all. And well, here there are multiple of those. I only know my teacher, no one else. 😀

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map – the key to a legendary treasure trove – 17-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.

TOP 5 TUESDAY (#53) : BOOKS SET IN MY COUNTRY

T5T

Hey guys! Last week was another silent week. At Thursday, stomach flu landed in our middle child. Friday it was me and The Man and all the way until today, the middle child has been sick. I’m so glad the other two didn’t get sick. It was something I have ever felt before! But it was awful to not be able to do anything to help the middle one to feel any better or just make it go away. 😦

And now I need to stop babbling about my work/school and get onto the subject.

This is going to be rather hard since I’m not sure I’ve read any books set in Finland! But I’ll try my best and go hunting right now.

TOP 5 TUESDAY (#52) : BOOK SPINES

T5T

Hey guys! It has been a hot while, again. But I had my first showing for school at work last Friday and I nailed it! I probably stressed too much and kind of for nothing since I knew everything I had to be doing for that. Then I had another showing last Sunday when we did this little open doors-thingie at the stables where everyone was able to come and ride couple rounds, brush a horse etc. It was a success and we had over 200 visitors!! Anyway, It’s all over for a while now. Next showing will be my riding and driving a horse. But I have time to practice for those and time to read also.

And now I need to stop babbling about my work/school and get onto the subject.
