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 #142 – Bought Borrowed & Bagged #92
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:

The Sunday Post # – 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’ve had some exciting news this week, but I’m going to have to wait another couple of weeks to make sure everything will work out exactly as planned before I share fully. (And yes, I know, right? Totally frustrating of me to tease you like this 😉 ) Little by little my family is going back home, my oldest son left last Saturday to spend a week with friends before going home, on Thursday, my husband and two of the other kids left, and on Monday, my sister and her two kids are leaving as well. For the next few weeks, it’ll only be littlest Ms. Lex and Freddy staying here in Spain me.
I’m still really happy to be close to the sea, even if we do spend a little less time at the beach these days. We go for walks and visit other, nearby villages instead, though. Plus, we get some more reading done, so it’s a total win!

Lola @ Lola’s Reviews wonders Do You Read All Books by an Author?
Did you get some good books last week? What have you been up to this past week? Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend, and that next week will be filled with awesome!
Seriously, why you gotta tease us like that?! I wanna know what the exciting news is lol. I’m glad you’re enjoying your time in Spain, it sounds so nice there. By the way, Freddy looks like he’s giving someone some sort of sarcastic, one-eyebrow-raised type of look in that second picture lol.
Thanks for sharing my post and have a great week!
I needed to have a trace about saying something here… even if it’s really mean :p
Freddy does look a bit sarcastic in the second pic, you’re completely right, Kristen!
I can’t wait to hear the exciting news!!! Hope you and Freddy have a nice time by yourselves in Spain. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!
Of course, I’ve heard back now – in writing and all.. but I’m not going to change my original post – I’ll do my actual reveal next week.
Thanks for stopping by, Grace!
Looks like you and Freddy are having a great time-the idea of a nice peaceful summer away from home with a cute puppy and lots of reading time sounds so great! I’m dead jealous!
Yeah, home away from home is always amazing, Chuckles!
You’re such a tease. LOL. Sounds like you’ve had a great time in Spain. A little time with just you, Freddy and some great books sounds like a fun time. I have arcs right now. It was quite a difficult decision to make yesterday which of my own audiobooks to start yesterday. I only had 10+ already downloaded to choose from. LOL
I love spending my summers here, Melanie! It’s so nice and quiet, everything is a bit slower than at home 🙂
Oooo I can’t wait to hear your news and I hope it all goes according to plan too. Some great ARCs you got there. How do you get audio books as ARCs I’m always curious?! Have a great week with Freddy.
I have a contact with Tantor Audio for the audio ARCs, Emma 🙂
Nice pics! the books arenew to me but I hope you’ll enjoy them. happy reading!
Have a great week or holiday? seems really lovely where you are, as opposed to the winter chill here
Haha! Now I’m REALLY excited to know what the news is, Lexxie. You’ve done a fabulous job teasing us all! 😀
Freddie is such a cute little thing! I’m glad you guys are having fun and are enjoying yourselves.
I hope all those books are great! I’m particularly curious to hear your thoughts on the Sawyer Bennett books. I’ve liked most of her books in the past, but I’m not sure if her newest ones are for me.
Have a great week!
Those arcs look so great! Especially Too Wicked to Kiss and Too Sinful to Deny! 😀
Freddie is soooo cute! ^_^
Freddy is so cute. I hope you love all of your new books.
Looking good all your new books. Happy reading and have a great weekend.
Vi @ Gone With The Books
Some alone time by the sea with a fur baby sounds like heaven to me..,.but then again, I’m a total introvert LOL! Freddy is still adorable and you are a TOTAL tease with your good news hint. Bad Lexxie! Hahahah! Have a lovely weekend my friend ♥
Oh, now I’m waiting with bated breath, as they say in the books we read….it sounds like wonderful news. I think Freddy knows, however, judging by that look on his face, tongue hanging out. LOL.
Enjoy your weekend…and your new books. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
Oh you little tease you…lol. Sounds like a nice relaxing week of reading coming up with everyone going leaving. 🙂 You got some good books, hope you enjoy them! 🙂
Enjoy your books this week! Can’t wait to hear your good news. 🙂
Prep my room. I’m joining you guys there in Spain!
Ahhh, the beach. I haven’t been to one in so long. I need a vacation! 😀 I’ve not heard of your new books! I’ve been meaning to try one of Ridley’s HR novels for quite some time. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!
Have a fabulous week, Lexxie. 🙂
Check out my STS post!
Whatever the news is, congrats! And glad you guys are having a good time- that cathedral sounds nice. Freddy looks like he’s having a good time! Not a bad life huh? lol hope you guys have another great week!
Freddy is adorable! I love Fur babies. I have an ARC of Rock Wedding as well. I’m interested to see your review in the future. I’ve read every Nalini Singh book out there EXCEPT this series. I have no idea what is holding me back lol
Looks like you’re having a lovely time with some great weather – and yes, I’m deeply jealous given that we seem to be stuck in April here in England… Though the forecasters have promised us two more days of sun before the thunderstorms roll in once more! Looking forward to hearing your news next week and in the meantime continue to have a great holiday:)
Sounds like Freddy is enjoying Spain. 🙂 Happy reading.
I can’t wait to hear your news!!! Alone time to read sounds lovely!! 🙂
I always love your Freddy photos. I want to know your news!
You are totally going to send me a message and tell me what it is right!!!! 😉 I seriously can’t wait to here what it is!
It must be so nice and it will now be nice and quiet just you and the little one (and Freddy) It really sounds so peaceful. Enjoy the week, Lexxie! Still miss you!!! Happy Reading!
Now i’m super curious but the waiting is the worst. Sounds like you are having an amazing time in Spain even if the family has all left you have Freddie to keep you company. He’s so darn cute it just melts my heart. I wish my pups could travel a lot easier, they are huge and a plane would be awful. Looks like you added some lovely books. I hope you have an amazing week. I hope you get some reading in between those walks.
Congrats and we all can’t wait to hear your exciting news. Freddie is adorable and it sounds like you are having a relaxing time. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your new books.
Yay for exciting news! Can’t wait to hear what it might be!
Looks like you and Freddy are having a great time in Spain!!! If I could, I would take my dog EVERYWHERE with me!
Tease 😉 Hope the news is good news for you! Love your Freddie pics. Glad you are having a good time in Spain. I’d love to visit Europe some day….maybe when the kids are grown, my husband and I can take our honeymoon (finally!). You got some great books this week, hope you enjoy!
Here’s my Sunday Post.
Aww! Freddie looks like he’s worn out from your adventures. Enjoy your time at the beach. I’m curious about those Erica Ridley books. I’ve seen them but know nothing about her but they really good. Can’t wait to hear your exciting news! Have a great week!
Can’t wait for the exciting news! I’ll bet it’s real good 🙂 Looks like your summer is still going well. Freddie sure looks like he’s having a ball. Have a great week!
oh I can’t wait to hear about your news!!! So jealous you are so close to the sea. So envious about Rock Wedding, but the day it comes out I am buying it. Especially since I have read some amazing reviews on that one.
Sounds like a wonderful life, Lexxie. And Freddy is so lucky to be a part of it! He looks happy:)
As usual, adorable photos of Freddy! Glad you’ve been having a nice time in Spain – enjoy your last days. It’s always great getting lots of reading in. 🙂
Awww…sorry to hear your family going back, but at least you had a great week! Here’s my Sunday Post!
Looks like you’re still having a great time in Spain! And I’m now really curious about your news! 🙂
Sounds like you have been having a lovely time and that adorable pup of yours looks like he is very relaxed!
