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 #157 – Bought Borrowed & Bagged #107
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, Sourcebooks, Running Press, Minnesota University Press, Harlequin, Algonquin Books and NetGalley!
Thank you, Avon, Harper and Edelweiss!
Thank you Pride Publishing and Enchantress Design & Promo!
And I have to say that this cover, plus the summary talking about a tattooed dancer made me think of this:
I had never even heard of Anna Todd when I went to the Bookfest in the south of France last month, but she was so friendly and funny I decided right there and then I wanted to read her books. So, here’s the first in her series 🙂
The Sunday Post #107 – 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.
We spent the whole week in Spain, and while the beginning of the week was a bit bleak, with fog and a some rain, the latter part was beautiful! The sun shining and warm, the kids and Freddy went swimming in the sea more than once (and I went into the water, but not swimming…). Of course, we took full advantage of the empty beach, the near-empty restaurants, and peace and quiet everywhere. Now, we’re back home though, as son #2 has a hockey game today.
I also continued to make a little progress on my thesis, so I’m quite happy with myself to be honest. I may actually sign up for NaNo, just to have someone help cheer me on, and make me possible finish a full first draft of my thesis during November. That would be awesome, because my professor has to sign me up for the exam session, and I really want to do my defence for the February session next year, so that I know it’s all over with, and I can get into teaching college next year. Edited to add: Here’s my NaNoWriMo profile 😉
During the month of October, I have participated in Anna @ Herding Cats & Burning Soup‘s blog ahead challenge, and I have to say I did really well! When October started, I didn’t have a single post planned. Nothing. It was as if my blog was going to be a blank page in the future. Not only have I had posts for every weekday in October, but I also have 18 posts scheduled and ready to go for November and December. I may even be able to do a few year-end posts before October is completely over. So, like last year, this challenge was a total win for me!
