Weekend Wrap-up #243 – Sweet, sweet rain.

Posted 11 August, 2018 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 33 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 #243

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:

ARCs Recieved - (un)Conventional Bookviews - Bought Borrowed and Bagged Stacking the Shelves

Rock Fuck Club 2 cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews - Weekend Wrap-upRock Fuck Club 3 cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews - Weekend Wrap-up

I’ve already read both of these, and I just love the pure girl power included in this series! Women take the front seat, and they do what they want – plus, they also do their very best to support other women.

Purchased - (un)Conventional Bookviews bought borrowed and bagged stacking the shelves

I got this because Nick @ The Infinite Limits of Love told me this series is the best romantic suspense she’s read.

The Sunday Post #193 – 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.


Brandee and I announced everywhere that we’re getting married 🙂 The official date for our two blogs merging is Wednesday, August 15th. Our new URL is www.unconventionalbookworms.com and we’re very excited about our merge. There will be several giveaways on the blog starting next week. Some of our prizes are signed books, and each giveaway will have one book for US readers and one for international readers 🙂

We finally got some rain, and the temperature lowered enough so that we can sleep at night and breathe during the day. That just makes life so much better! Also, I had to do my little rain appreciation in the backyard the other evening 😉

It rained for almost two days, but now the sun is back out, only she’s not baking us while giving us light.

  1. Very happy for you both! Looking forward to seeing the new blog!

    We can’t seem to stop getting rain, my poor veggies are so water logged. It’s either humid stuffy hot or thunderstorms. Those puppies are adorable!

    Have a great week, Lexxie! Miss you! oxox

    • Thank you Michelle! <3 We’re really happy too. Some of the changes have already been made here - as we’ll point the new URL through my blog.
      We only got about a day and a half of rain, but the temps moved from 94 to 78-80, so I’m happy. Now, the sun is out again, but it’s not scalding.
      Have a great week yourself!! I miss you lots. Xoxo

    • It is very exciting! And I think it’s going to work really well for both of us, Angelica 🙂
      Of course we’ll have international giveaways – I live in Switzerland, so I am also frustrated when giveaways are US / Canada only. We need to share the love!

    You’re wanting rain and I want it to stop. Seriously my grass is crazy high because of rain but all of my days off it rains so how do you cut it???? Enjoy the rain, books, and pups!

  3. Ooooh so excited that you’re merging your blog with Brandee! Congrats! 😀
    We also finally got rain here in Belgium and lower temp, although I was sweating on my way back from the grocery store today but at least it isn’t over 30° anymore. Thank god! It’s much better for all the animals. I was worried my new bunny would be too hot so hopefully it stays down from now on.

  4. So exciting about your blog marriage! I’m looking forward to it. You also have some good reviews coming up this week. And Yay for cooler temperatures! I can’t do puppies in action. My chocolate miniature poodle is 16.5, so it’s more like snoring in a heap. Anne -Books of My Heart

  5. Congrats on the merger! Sounds like it will be awesome. And glad you got some relief from the heat, and then the rain. Hope your temps stay reasonable. 🙂

    Hercules does seem like a natural. And Freddy looks pretty comfy himself.

    I’m thinking Midnight Rescue looks pretty good.

    • Thank you, Greg!
      Hercules is so funny – when I take out my phone to take a picture, he strikes a pose. Freddy often looks away from me 😀
      Midnight Rescue was awesome! Now, I’ve added the whole rest of the series to my kindle 😀

  6. It’s been very rainy here these two weeks too. The dogs are too cute!!
    I need to read romantic suspense again, the books look good. Good luck with the merge, that is exciting!

  7. I can’t wait for the new merge….SO EXCITING!!! And lucky you on rain, we need it so badly here in the western US, I can barely breathe the smoke is so bad. You have a beautiful patio!!! 🙂

  8. I love the pic of you in the rain, Lexxie:). Though you are clearly eclipsed by those dogs – could they get more elegantly cool in front of a camera? Best of luck with the blog wedding – and I hope you have a fabulous week.

  9. Congrats on the blog merger! We’ve also been getting some much needed rain, and it’s been lovely to have clouds and cooler temps this weekend. Things will get back to normal in the next few days, but I’ll take a little taste of fall anytime!
