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.

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 #201 – 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.


I have been extremely busy once more, and I’ve also not been feeling well. And I feel really bad about not being around the blog much. A HUGE thank you to my darling blogger-wife, Brandee, for keeping the blog afloat these days. And a HUGE thank you to all of you who still come here to visit and comment – even if only Brandee is doing any blog-hopping lately.

In other news, I scored my ticket for Book Bonanza 2019, and am going to Dallas in August next year. I have booked my hotel room and my flights, and I’m really excited! I’ll be seeing some bloggers I really, really love there, like Kristin from Addicted to HEA, Kimberly from Caffeinated Reviewer, Berls from Because Reading, Felicia from Geeky Blogger and Anne from Books of My Heart. I can’t wait! Of course, I’m also excited about the amazing author line-up 😉 But bloggers!!!

  1. Oh no! Sorry to hear you’re sick! That’s never fun! Book Bonanza…I haven’t heard of that one! I need to figure out what my 2019 book adventure will be! Every year I “try” to go somewhere where there’s a large gathering of authors. Though I always end up failing in trying to find a roommate. My year long search for one for The Origin Event was a bust. I’ve tried including the event itself in my tweets to see if they do something to help you find a roommate, but I guess no one monitors the account. Oh well.

    But yay for new books! All totally new to me ones too! 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 🙂

  2. Oh, that’s rough – I hope you feel better soon. In The Blink of an Eye has my attention, it sounds intriguing. I’ll be looking for that one on NetGalley (or on publication)

    Your pups look so adorable. My Sheltie is never, every that still. She’s a whirlwind except when asleep and even then her legs keep moving lol

    • Thanks, Marsha!
      It does sound good – and I couldn’t resist it when I received an invite to get it 🙂
      Thank you 🙂 They aren’t always still like that, but when I try to take pictures while they’re playing, I only get a blur 😀

  3. You have been so busy and I am sorry you are not feeling well. I am so sad that I wont be able to go to Texas with you all. I am so sad 🙁 I hope you all have fun and remember to think of me! lol
    Love those puppies!!!

    Have a great week, Lexxie! Miss you!

    • Thank you Michelle 🙂 I really hope I’ll get the swing of this soon!
      I’m also very sad you won’t be able to make it to Texas next summer – I REALLY miss you! And of course we’ll think of you 🙂
      Have a great week yourself, my friend *hugs*

  4. Well I am also excited about Book Bonanza. There are a few authors I’ve been trying to meet who will be there but for me its about the bloggers. I made it to RT and DragonCon last year and just Apollycon this year. Apollycon really had a lot of authors I wanted to meet and also Andi Arndt (narrator) was there. So next year I’m hoping to go more. I really loved DragonCon and it is close. I’m considering Emerald City ComicCon because there are authors who go there who don’t seem to go east as much/often. Also I’m wondering about BEA as it is close and I love to go to NYC but what is the format of the event?

    • I’m so happy you’ve decided to come, Anne! It’s going to be a lot of fun!
      I’ve been to BEA twice, once in Chicago, and once in NYC. It’s a different kind of event, though. As it’s during the day, only (unless you’re one of the lucky people who gets invited to publisher’s parties). Also, it’s much more geared towards publishers, librarians and bookish professionals. There are a lot of bloggers there, but it’s a more professional expo.
      RT is geared towards readers, and so is Book Bonanza. Also, the fact that we can stay in the same hotel where the convention takes place makes it even more fun – and it’s quite possible to share a drink with a favorite author at the bar 🙂

  5. Yeah bloggers are better than authors. 🙂 KIDDING. Although… we are lol. Seriously though, congrats for attending Book Bonanza next year! Sounds fun. And Hercules/ Freddy look like they are best buds now- that’s so cool they get along so well.

    Hope your weekend is nice, Lexxie (and Brandee too)!

    • Bloggers are the BEST! And since we chant online every week, it’s so much fun to meet up in person and chat about books, books, books 😀
      Hercules and Freddy do get along well – I just wish Hercules would calm down a bit – he’s still a very excited puppy 😀

  6. Hope you feel better soon, Lexxie. Glad Brandee could tag team for you. Fun to see her face around here, too.

    Love the puppy snuggles!

    Yay for having your trip to the book con set up and looks fun with lots of familiar faces, too.

    • Thanks Kristen 🙂
      Book Bonanza is a book convention, and Colleen Hoover is the author behind it. The proceeds go to a charity, and there are lots and lots of (mostly) romance authors who attend. I went this year, and I loved it. Of course, I’m excited about many of the authors, but meeting up with bloggers is the highlight for me 😀

    • I live in Europe, but I still try to go to some events in the US. I’m very lucky I have the means to travel, I know 🙂 I hope you’ll be able to go to a bookish event where you can meet both bloggers / readers and authors you’re excited about, too!

  7. I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. It can really be a downer. Yep, it will be fun to meet some authors, but honestly romance isn’t my favorite genre and I have only read a handful of the authors listed. I am going to see my bloggy friends and float on the lazy river!

  8. I saw your post about Book Bonanza and being in the Dallas area I was thinking about it, but there are so many cons in 2019 that I want to go to I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to go to most! You would think this would be top of the list since it is so close, but deciding has been hard! Sorry you haven’t been feeling well. Hope next week has you back at it again!

  9. Book Bonanza sounds amazing! I hope to be able to attend something like that too someday!
    Sorry to hear you weren’t feeling well. Not feeling well and having to do soooo much is just the worst.
    I hope you feel better soon!
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  10. Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well. I hope this week finds you feeling better.

    One of these days I will *finally* read something by T.M. Frazier. I even own several by her but it just hasn’t happened yet.

    Hooray for getting your tickets to Book Bonanza. I love having something like that to look forward to.

    • They are SO much fun, Nicci! And you should definitely check them out – and if you have a chance, just go 🙂 I love meeting my fellow bloggers at conventions. Especially because most of my RL friends here at home aren’t big readers 🙂

  11. Well, I’ve been a slacker at commenting here, now haven’t I? I actually saw a tweet about a giveaway we were doing and I was like “What?” Hahahahahaha
    FYI, I have Perversion too. 😉 I know…you’re shocked, right? You’ve turned me into a TM Frazier fanatic!
    Well, I just wanted to make sure I commented here. I’ll do better, wifey, I promise. *smooches*
