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, Gallery Books and Edelweiss!
The Sunday Post #173 – 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 Wednesday afternoon (students are usually off on Wednesday afternoons, here) I took my two 3rd year classes to the University for a workshop on monsters in anglo-saxon literature, as the book we’re working on this semester is Monster by Walter Dean Myers. They really enjoyed it, and I found it very interesting, too.
The weather has been pretty nice lately, fairly cold, but blue skies and sun. So much sun that we have flowers spouting in the garden. Which means… pollen 😮 I’m still happy to have nicer weather, though, the gray, dreary rain was starting to get to me.
What I read in January:
I managed to finish 21 books in the first month – which is really awesome. I am not sure how it happened, but I’m really happy about it. Here’s a pic of those books:
