Weekend Wrap-up #240 – Almost Done

Posted 16 June, 2018 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 45 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 #240

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 #190 – 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 was very busy! On Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, my students had oral exams, and I was drained afterwards. However, I also had written exams from three other classes that I had to grade before Friday. Now, classes and grading is over with, and we just have meetings class councils before summer is here.

I also got accepted into the MA program for teaching, so I’m starting two more years of uni myself in the fall – while I also continue to teach part time.

So, I have continued to not really blog – and I hardly even read any books last week because I was so busy. I hope I’ll find the time and the motivation to write some posts now that most of the stress of the school year is over.

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!

  2. That’s great about your MA program! And yay for Freddy’s freedom!!

    Nice new reads too! They are all new to me ones! Hope you enjoy them all!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

  3. Whew, yes! Last week of school sounded super busy. Glad you get to slow down somewhat, now. Congrats on getting accepted into the MA program for the fall.
    Hercules does look guilty. Good for Freddy to be free and ready to play.

    Have a great week, Lexxie!

  4. It sounds like Freddy is ready to play again. The look on Hercules face is priceless. You got some interesting books this week.

  5. Congrats Lexxie!!! That’s awesome! And hope you enjoy your downtime now that exams are over.

    Yay for Freddy- no cone. Bet he’s happy… 🙂

    • Not only are they normally draining – but this year, students had their orals in pairs, they had to have a discussion analysing a passage :O I was so afraid I wouldn’t be able to keep track on who said what I had put in three breaks during the day. I did well, though, and so did the students! Lesson learned… less breaks next time 😀

    • Thanks Evelina 🙂 I will manage – somehow. All teachers here go through the same thing. Two years of a Master’s in education, while teaching part time at the same time 🙂
      I can’t read on a bus – I get sick then. But audiobooks work for me that way 🙂
      Have fun!!

    • Thanks Michelle, I’m really happy about that!
      Freddy is very happy without the cone 🙂 Hercules helped him get it off, then ruined it… he probably would have kept it a little bit longer if not for that 😉 Miss you too!

  6. When I was in school I never ready any at all when it was finals time and I imagine it’s ten times worse being the teacher! Congrats on getting into the MA program and good luck with the two years of school on top of teaching part time. You’re going to be busy but hopefully it’ll be good busy! Hercules looks so incredibly guilty! Love the puppy pictures. Have a great week!

  7. Huge congratulations on being accepted on the MA program – I’m sure you’ll do really well:). I’m glad to see Freddy is now recovered and free of the cone of shame. This time of year is always frantic for teachers – I hope you aren’t too tired. At least the end is in sight and then you will be able to resume your life and decompress!

  8. I’m glad it’s almost summer for you! And congrats on getting into the MA program; I’m sure it will be a lot – with teaching part time too – but you can do it!!
