Weekend Wrap-up #249 – Exhausted!

Posted 22 September, 2018 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 51 Comments

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookworms and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer.

STS #249

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 #199 – 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 has been both awesome and exhausting! My classes at Uni started on Monday, so after work every day, and on Friday morning (I have Fridays off from work), I went to different classes and seminars. They’re all very interesting, and I have already found some things I can do or use to make my teaching better. I just really, really hope I’ll get into the rhythm of both teaching and learning very soon, though. There is just SO much to do!

My sister and my youngest niece came for a visit on Tuesday, and they’re leaving on Sunday. It’s so nice to see them both – even if I’ve left everyone behind to go to bed fairly early every evening 🙂

  1. Oh wow you must be super busy! Hope it all goes well though. You will find a rhythm I’m sure.

    Glad you’re having a good visit w/ family!

    Aww Freddy… I can relate to the napping part lol.

  2. Once you reach that rhythm things won’t seem quite so crazy, but rest when you can is the best bet. It must have been good to see your family, and I bet they understood your early turn ins with all you have going on! Good luck! Your babies are sweet!

  3. That’s nice to have Fridays off! Glad that things are going smoothly and such! Puppies are cute as ever!!

    Nice new reads too! Totally new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

  4. Aw, I’m glad you had a nice visit with family! I love the new pup! LOL

    I got a Karina Halle book for review too, but that one sounds interesting! I love her writing.

    Have a great week!

  5. Whew! You are definitely busy between work and school and family visit, but it sounds like a really good kind of busy when you get work and school into a rhythm. 🙂 I think I’ll take a nap with Freddy. LOL

  6. I have put off Bright Side for so long, because I have heard it’s really painful. I had gone to a con back in 2015, and Holden was one of the keynote speakers. She put together this reel of fan reactions to Bright Side, and it made me cry buckets.

  7. I hope you get it all acclimated so it feels more comfortable. I know I am with you on the exhausted. I’m really looking forward to a week off in October. I’ve also got plenty of great things to read. I hope you fit in some relaxing and free reading. Anne – Books of My Heart

  8. I have never ever heard of Kim Holden. I am off to check her out, see what I’ve been missing apparently. And yeah, Jake and I are still trying to get in the swing of school this year, too. We’ll all get there eventually I’m sure!!
