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 #164 – Bought Borrowed & Bagged #114
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, Intrepid Reads, Random House and Netgalley.
Thank you so much, Tantor Media!
It’s all Sophia’s fault… check out her re-read feature for this one!
This is my Christmas present from me to myself 🙂 Signed books by KA Tucker 🙂 They are going to look SO good on my shelves!!
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.
I had a pretty good week once more! I had lunch with a fellow KA Tucker fan who also lives in Geneva! We both couldn’t believe we didn’t know each other until Tucker asked me at the book fest in the south of France in October if I knew Amélie 😀 Of course, I contacted her via private message on Facebook as soon as I got back home, now, we’ve met for real. We had a great lunch, and look forward to meeting up again in the new year.
My youngest daughter plays in the school orchestra. It’s during school hours, and she plays the cello. They had their Christmas concert on Tuesday and it was so nice to see the progress they’ve made since the end of last year!
More thesis progress, too. I met with my professor yesterday, and I think I’ll be able to type up a rough draft possibly next week. It would be nice to have that out of the way before the holidays, for sure. Plus, there is that pesky detail of her telling me that if I want to do my defence in February, she actually needs a draft before the holidays 😀
I’ve caught a bug (or two) as well, so I’m really tired, which is why I haven’t visited much this past week, and why I have so few posts scheduled for next week 🙁
