Weekend Wrap-up #230 – Birthday Edition

Posted 24 March, 2018 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 50 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 #230

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:

Wednesday was my birthday, and I woke up to an amazon gift card from my darling blogger-wife, Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee. Here’s what I splurged on – my one-click finger was almost as happy as I was!

The Sunday Post #180 – 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.


Yet another busy week- and Mother Nature still has no idea what season it’s supposed to be…

We’re having some friends over on Saturday evening to celebrate my birthday, and I really look forward to that, even if it also means I’ll be spending most of the day preparing food rather than blog-hopping 😉

  1. Oh, now that is a lovely birthday surprise and looks like you got some real goodies. Children of Blood and Bone is on my list. Friend Request looks intriguing.

    Have fun for your birthday dinner!

  2. Hope your birthday celebration is awesome! And that your actual birthday was awesome too!

    Nice new reads!! I STILL need to read Sisters of Salt and Iron! And I read the first book as an ARC too! So behind! I guess I missed it when it was just a duology! I thought it might be a trilogy and was waiting! Lol!

    Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Cute cuddles! Looks like you have some great picks this week. I have a coupe of those on my radar but the cover for Select Few caught my eye. Hope you enjoy the new goodies!~

  4. Happy birthday Lexxie! And yay for the gift card. Those are the best kinds of gifts I think. 🙂

    That dog pic is adorable. That’s so nice that they hang together…

  5. Ooh, Select Few has such a lovely cover. You have an awesome haul 🙂 Allegedly is a book I’ve been wondering for the past year or so, and I’d love to read that. Is that lendable xD I mean, if you don’t mind 🙂 <3 I could always lend you something from my library (I even have an owned ebooks shelf, although some of them are imported by USB or ARCs so I guess I couldn't lend those but we could check if you find something cool)

    Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had some great celebrations. You got some awesome sounding books – some that I want to read are Tyler Johnson Was Here, Friend Request, and Allegedly. I hope they are all good reads.


  8. I just got Children of Blood and Bone in the mail! I can’t wait to start reading it. You have quite a few books to get through. 😉 Happy reading!

    Happy Birthday Lexxie!!! How’d I miss that? *sigh* I’m the worst at things like birthday’s… I blame it on being raised not celebrating them. I hope you had a great birthday – the one clicking was a great start 🙂

    I know, this weather is INSANE isn’t it? I mean, I’ve got 80s and Michelle has snow! WTF?

    I hope you have a great week. Miss you!! {{HUGS}}

  10. Happy Belated Birthday Lexxie. I hope you enjoyed your day. One clicking is always a wonderful present, enjoy all your new reads.

  11. Looks like we have some book in common this week 😀 I also got approved for Select Few though I have to admit I haven’t read the Select yet. Maybe I should read both of them together 😛
    Also, I purchased Children of Blood and Bone. Can’t wait to start it.
    I so wanted to purchase Allegedly but it is so costly right now that I can’t afford it 🙁

    I hope you enjoy reading your book 🙂

  12. Those two are just too cute! Perfect weather for cuddling…I think. We had beautiful weather for Easter then this morning (Easter Monday) we had snow again. {{sighs}}
