I always get a tingle of delight when I see one of those pings appear on my notifications. But I noticed that more often than not, tags do take time to prepare and write. I tell myself I will use a tag on a day I don’t have a review or post scheduled, and then I forget. Still, I love them and I haven’t lost the hope to catch up before the end of the month.
I’d like to send a hug and a puppy with a ‘thank you’ note around his neck to Jill @ rantandraveaboutbooks.com for nominating me to the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. If you are looking for detailed and passionate books reviews, her blog is the place to go!

#1 I don’t consider flowers and plants to be good gifts, at least for me. Why would someone make me such a poisoned present? They need a lot of attention; you must water them, choose the right pot and make sure they get enough sun light. My mother even talks to them. I don’t have time for any of this. Buy me a plastic cactus if you must, but if you really want to please me, nothing beats a beautiful candle.
#2 My insomnia is back, which means my brain doesn’t get enough sleep to function normally. The hardest part is my body won’t allow me to take naps. If I dare trying, I’ll wake up sick and with a massive headache for the rest of the day. It has hampered my plans for the week, reduced the number of posts published on my blog and forced me to stay on the couch doing nothing for too many long hours. I really hope to get some rest soon. I am not fond of pills so I’m trying every natural way to kick insomnia’s ass. If you have any tips, I’m all ears!
#3 I play with my hair all the time, especially when I’m tired or nervous. I turn my hair ends into a circle in my palm and then I toy with it with my index. It’s weird, but I don’t care, I have been doing this since my hair was long enough. I’ll probably still be doing it at 70. My hairdresser hates me for it.
#4 I love the cold. That explains how I survived living in the North of France for 18 years. We basically share England’s weather. Of course, I am not talking about -18°C temperatures, but I miss rainy days and that lovely cold wind. When you are cold, you can always add up layers to help warm your body. But what do you do when you feel your entire body melting even though you’re dressed as a stripper? Spring, summer and autumn can be very tough in the South. Interestingly, we get our fair share of rain in Bordeaux. The main difference is it’s 40°C and the showers never last long. As soon as spring shows up, I know my nightmare is about to begin. You have little chance of stumbling across me in the middle of a July day if I can avoid it. Plus, who wants to ride the tramway crammed with sweaty people who don’t remember what a shower is?
#5 I hate surprises. Even the word sends shivers down my spine. I don’t want someone to plan a trip without me knowing, I don’t like surprise parties, I hate not knowing where I’m going. I am much happier if you come to me with an idea and I get to have a say in what’s gonna happen. I know, I am no fun. Still, it’s better to be a party pooper than find yourself in the middle of the woods for a so called “fun camping trip” on a rainy day.
#6 I can’t draw. At all. Don’t ask me for a house and a dog, you’ll get a packing box and an alien with Mickey ears. I always say the creativity fairy sneezed over my cradle and all I got was dandruff.
#7 Bartenders still ask for my ID when I go out. I may be 25, but I sure don’t look like it. People keep telling me I’ll be happy about it when I’m 40, and that might be true, but try and be credible when everyone thinks you’re 17.
