Weekend Wrap-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 and Caffeinated Reviewer.
Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality is all about the latest additions to my library – virtual or actual, with books that are bought, borrowed, won or ARCs I will (probably) be reading soon. Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week:
Thank you Loveswept and NetGalley!
After spending some time with Ms. Lilley last weekend, I wanted to read more of her books.
Got this little gem in my newsletter from Tiffany Reisz.
The Sunday Post #156 – Weekend Wrap-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.
This week has been extremely busy. On top of that, I’ve been oh so very tired from spending last weekend in Cannes. I didn’t get much sleep, but I did have a lot of fun! Our plane left Geneva at 6:30 am last Saturday, and we were able to fully enjoy the book festival the whole day. I got to meet all the authors I had to meet, plus more that I wanted to meet. And it was so strange to see who had long or short lines – based on how many of their books have been translated to French!
On Saturday evening, we went to the gala dinner at the Cannes Festival Palace, and it was awesome! We had Champagne aplenty, good food, and excellent company. After dinner was over, there was an awards ceremony. And after that, party time. My daughter went back to the hotel around 1 am, but I stayed on with my friend Amélie, and with Ali of Black Heart Reviews. We went to a bar with some authors, and some of them brought their husbands.
On Sunday, I was so very tired, but still very happy. And there were still a few more hours left for the festival. Afterwards, my daughter, Amélie and her husband, KA Tucker and her husband and I left to find a place to have lunch. Tarryn Fisher came with us, and just when we were seated, Colleen and her husband showed up as well. Amélie and I managed not to squee, but internally, we were both happy-dancing.
This week was tough, as I had a very long day on Monday, and I have battled a head cold for over a week. But I really can’t wait for my next bookish fun, which will be in February, in London for RARE.
