Bought, Bagged and Wrapping it Up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews, Talk Supe and Caffeinated Reviewer.
STS #163 – Bought Borrowed & Bagged #113
Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is all about the latest additions to your library – virtual or actual, with books that are bought, borrowed, won or ARCs you will be reading soon. Bought Borrowed and Bagged is a homage to to Barron’s Books and Baubles from KMM’ Fever series, and is hosted by Braine over at Talk Supe. Without further ado, here’s what I bought, borrowed or bagged this past week:
Thank you Harleqin Teen and NetGalley!
Thank you, Gallery Books and Edelweiss!
My freebie Kindle First for December – to be released in January 2017
From my Waterstones visit in Amsterdam, I got : The Spy by Paulo Coelho, Virgins by Diana Gabaldon, Paris for One by Jojo Moyes and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. That Shakespeare edition was too beautiful to pass on.
The Sunday Post #113 – Wrapping it Up
Kim @ The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.
On Monday and Tuesday, Mr. Lex and I were in Amsterdam, and we had a fantastic time! On Monday morning, we arrived in the city around 9:30, and went straight to our hotel which was smack in the center. Then, Mr. Lex went skating (he’s a speedskater) while I went for a stroll in the shopping district, and to the Banksy exposition. After lunch, Mr. Lex came back and we went exploring together. On Tuesday, I went with him to the skating rink, and it was so nice! Loads of people were out there skating in the morning sun, and it made me long for my own skates. Of course, I found the Waterstone’s Maureen told me about last week, and I left there with four new books – impossible to buy no books, that’s for sure.
I have also advanced nicely on my thesis, I sent 24 new pages to my mentor this week, and while I haven’t heard back from her yet, I am happy with my progress.
