Weekend Wrap-up #208 – Two Puppies are Better than One!

Posted 14 October, 2017 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 71 Comments

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.

STS #208

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:

The Sunday Post #158 – 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.


On Sunday, Hercules and I went by plane from Oslo to Zurich, then by train from Zurich to Geneva. And he slept during the plane ride, it was such a nice change from flying with Freddy;) At first, Freddy was very suspicious of the tiny, growling puppy, but they have become rather friendly, even if I won’t leave them alone together for the time being.

We’re straight in the middle of mid-semester tests these days, and I’ve been creating new tests for my classes. Some had theirs last week, which means I won’t really have much time off this weekend. Also, both my boys have hockey games in Geneva this weekend, so I might not be around much. I will do my very best to visit back, though, as I always appreciate seeing what everyone else has been up to lately.

(un)Conventional Bookviews has been mentioned on two blogger appreciation sites, and I’m happy and flattered to be surrounded by some amazing blogs over there! I always think of my blog as a tiny little space on the internet, where I interact mostly with blogger friends, and didn’t realise that other people might be reading my posts as well. Check out Top Book Review Blogs and The Writer Awards to see the great company I’m in.

I haven’t been a very good blogger lately… Hopefully, I’ll be able to write some reviews and other posts this weekend, in between correcting tests and preparing more lesson plans.

Did you get some good books last week? What have you been up to this past week? Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, and that next week will be filled with awesome!

  1. Congrats on your new baby! He is so cute! We kept out pets separate for a while before leaving them alone. I am glad they are getting along.

    It’s nice to be recognized! You are one of my favorite bloggers so I can see why everyone loves you! You are such a sweetheart! Miss your face lots and lots.

    Have a great week, Lexxie! Happy Reading! ox

  2. So far so good with the dogs? Yay- hope they become fast friends. 🙂

    And congrats on the appreciation posts!! Greatly deserved. 🙂

  3. Awww Hercules. He is just adorable. ^_^ Hope your boys have a great hockey games. It’s always nice to see appreciation posts or find your blog featured somewhere. It’s a great feeling. Have a wonderful weekend and a great week ahead.

  4. I think about that sometimes, like, I feel sad when I don’t get a lot of comments some days because I feel like my blog is just this tiny place where I interact with my bookish friends, but then I wonder if maybe there are people out there who visit and enjoy my posts but just don’t comment. Anyway, congrats on the blogger recognition award stuff! You deserve it 🙂

  5. OOh nice new reads! All totally new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them both!

    It’s been so long since we added our second dog to our other dog. So they have an age difference. I can’t remember how the first one handled the new puppy. Though it wasn’t too long before they became partners in crime! It’s also funny that the first dog was pretty energetic and crazy…though he’s still kinda crazy now, lol and when we got the second he calmed down, but the second was taking over the energetic role!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

  6. Awesome haul. Sometimes they get upset when you bring in a new dog. Then they become friends after a while. Great looking reads.

  7. Yay, glad to hear you and Hercules have arrived safely and Hercules is starting to settle. It takes time for him to be friends with Freddy but they will. Ahh I remember our struggles when Momo came. Now they’re best friends. ?
    My weekend has turned out to be busier than I thought it would be. I hope I could have the time to read too. I hope you will have sometime to read this weekend. Have a wonderful weekend and week ahead. ❤️?

    • Yes, we let them take the time they need 🙂 Freddy is a bit jealous, but he’s also happy to have a little puppy to play with and boss around in the garden.
      I hope you’ll find time to read tomorrow! I have almost finished correcting and grading tests, so I hope I’ll be able to read tomorrow, too. Even if I should spend some time writing reviews 😉

  8. Hercules is seriously the cutest! ^_^ I didn’t get any books this week except for some freebies from Hourly History but I didn’t make a STS post just for that. There are some new releases I’m getting on my Kindle next week, though. 🙂

  9. OMG I had no idea you are located in Switzerland – how cool!!! I’m originally from Germany, but at the moment in California at home.

    I finished Sure Thing as well, and truly enjoyed the banter and british hottie. Aston surely knows how to entertain. 😀 Without Merrit has been on my tbr but I’m not sure if I’ll pick it up. Her books are incredibly emotional and I hate to cry. 😀 The book by Jill Shalvis looks awesome, can’t wait to see what you think.

    • I didn’t know that about you, either, Corina 🙂 I’ve never been to California, one day I’ll make it there.

      Aston’s witty banter is always fun, and I’m glad you enjoyed Sure Thing, too!

      I started Shalvis’ story last night, and I already love it. Her characters are golden.

  10. He is just too cute, and so is Freddy. Glad he makes a good traveling companion. Good luck to the kiddos with their hockey games. Our son played Rugby and we miss the weekend games. Enjoy your new lovelies. Congrats on your Huss win too!

  11. Glad the puppies are starting to get on – very cute. I would love a dog but have a cat so not sure that will ever work. Have a good week.

  12. Baby did not want Cera when we brought her home. They are friends now and at times BFFs, but they definitely have their moments. Baby doesn’t appreciate having to share attention, and Cera just steals it, so Baby goes to hide, which I hate. Then she gets grumpy when The Man or I smother her. They both like having their own space and won’t sleep in the same place at night. If Baby is on the couch, Cera is in the guest bed or vice versa. It’s not what I pictured when we brought Cera home. Hopefully, Freddy realizes how cool Hercules is! I hope you enjoy what little of a weekend you get!

    • Freddy isn’t all happy I brought a baby dog home with me from Norway, but he’s also having fun with him, and when they cuddle together, I totally melt. I do hope they’ll become best friends, because we already love them both so very much.
      Have a great week yourself.

  13. Oh my gosh I haven’t been here in forever! I’m finally back to blogging consistently and just had to stop by to say hi and to see what goodies you’ve been reading. My son has been begging me to get him a puppy, so we’re getting him one very soon. He already has a cat so it’ll be interesting to see he manages both. It’s good to see you again!

  14. The most they paid was all sorts of certifications about the cat’s health and permits. All the paperwork, basically. Glad it’s easier to transport doggies in Europe 🙂

  15. Oh the cuteness of those two little ones!
    Best wishes for the mid-term exams.
    Congratulations on the recognition! Very nicely done!

  16. Glad they are getting a long. I’m sure they will inseparable soon. I see you have the new Tiffany Reisz book. I still need to get caught up. I have The Night Mark that I still need to listen to very soon.
