Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #153 – Rainy Day Friends

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post. The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if […]

Review: The Chateau – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Chateau – Tiffany Reisz

The Chateau was wickedly delicious and deliciously wicked. I loved this glimpse into Kingsley’s past, how he was already both a giver and a receiver of pain.. Story: Reisz always mesmerizes me with her storytelling, and I was immediately immersed in The Chateau with Kingsley. In this story, I got to know Kingsley better, and I loved seeing him as a young man. How he lived with the aftermath of his relationship with Søren. What he actually did for the hidden branch of the French government. And how he got entangled with a community where women were boss. In the Chateau, Kingsley wasn’t only a government agent, he was also a player. And he played rather well if the girl […]

Midyear Freak-Out Book Tag

Midyear Freak-Out Book Tag

Midyear Freak-Out Book Tag: I found this post at Cait’s PaperFury, and since I’ve been in a complete blogging slump lately, I decided that this looks like fun! And I need to bring some fun back so I feel like blogging more… How Much I’ve Read: I’m actually in advance on my Goodreads reading challenge for once, because I haven’t been in a reading slump. Only in a blogging slump. And I’ve read some absolutely fantastic books so far this year – 2018 is the year of wonders when it comes to books. So yeah, I’m quite happy with my reading. Especially if we look at a breakdown on genres and ratings: So, I have no idea how Cait did […]

Review: Rainy Day Friends – Jill Shalvis

Review: Rainy Day Friends – Jill Shalvis

Rainy Day Friends was a very emotional read. I cried so hard! But I also laughed and swooned very hard! Story: Lanie had really been through hell and back before Rainy Day Friends even started. She felt like nothing in her life was right anymore, which is one of the reasons why she took a temporary job at a winery away from her LA home. As soon as she arrives, she’s taken in by a huge, noisy family who run the winery together. And she feels utterly out of place. Even if everyone there tries to help her feel welcome. Lanie doesn’t want her employers to know just what it is she’s running away from, and Rainy Day Friends definitely […]

Privacy Policy, GDPR and stuff…

Privacy Policy, GDPR and stuff…

Privacy Policy, GDPR and other fun things Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, and you should not use this post as legal advice! This is just my take on what needs to be done in order to be in compliance with the GDPR, and a little bit about Privacy Policy and why we need them. If you have a blog, you have probably heard of the new regulations from the EU. And they sure do apply to all of us. What it means, is that each blog needs to have a Privacy Policy, and also a secure connection, including SSL. My privacy policy is pretty straight forward, and I may need to add a few things to it, but I […]
