Weekend Wrap-up #257 – Only Two More Weeks!

Posted 8 December, 2018 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 41 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 #256

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:

I received this beautiful paperback edition of Jane Eyre from my Secret Santa in a reader’s Facebook Group I’m in. I love it 🙂 And of course, I love Jane Eyre – but I’m going to read it again now that I have this gorgeous edition to adorn my shelves.The Sunday Post - (un)Conventional Bookviews

The Sunday Post #206 – 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’m sorry I’ve been MIA these past few weeks, I’ve been completely swamped. Creating end of semester exams, meetings, my classes at Uni, and my own exams have left me with no energy. I’m happy to say that things will slow down a little bit now, and there are only two more weeks left until Christmas vacation. Both my kids and I are impatient to get some much needed time off. The dogs have kept me sane, on the few occasions I was able to take an afternoon nap, they napped with me 😀

Tonight, my oldest and I are going to see Bohemian Rapsody, then have dinner together. I can’t wait!

    enjoy bohemian rhapsody! kinda. I saw a giveaway on one of the facebook groups i’m following for Verity. CAn’t wait for your review too

  2. Yeah work was crazy for me this past week as well! Next week doesn’t look much better either. I’m ready for a break myself, but sadly we don’t get those at work! Lol! Glad you have a break that’s coming up soon though! Those are necessary!

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

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

  3. I figured between teaching and your own studies that you would be flying low for a while. 🙂 Glad its going to get a little slower for you soon. Neat that you’re doing movie and dinner with your oldest.
    Very nice haul you’ve got and that is a pretty cover for Jane Eyre. I love that one, too.
    Cuddling with the dogs for a nap sounds good. Have a good weekend, Lexxie!

  4. I hope things settle down soon! I know finals towards the end of the year can make life so hectic and stressful. I love your pup photos and their names are adorable!

    • Things will settle down after the 21st, so at least now I can see the end of the tunnel, Sabrina 🙂
      Thanks 🙂 We love the pup names, too, even if we never imagined Hercules would become so much bigger than Freddy – we wonder if it’s partly because of his name ;9

    • The move was so, so good. We both loved it. Now, Queen is on, and I’m working and blogging 😀
      I know this time of year is difficult for everyone – not just teachers and students. I always wonder why we do this to ourselves.
      Thanks for stopping by Aj 🙂

  5. I hope you enjoy Bohemian Rhapsody- I can’t wait to see it! And wow you have been busy! Hope you have a nice and super relaxing break when it gets here. 🙂

    Freddy and Hercules look quite chilled and happy there haha!

  6. Exams tend to suck the energy out of you at the best of times but this time of the year is just more stress! Good luck with the exams! Snuggling with your pups must be relaxing though!

  7. You have been so busy! I miss you! <3
    I took off the last week in December and I can't wait. This year has been so crazy and I can't wait for the break.

    I hope this week is awesome for you, Lexxie! I miss your face! Happy Reading! ox

  8. Heisann! Nå er jeg endelig tilbake i bloggverdenen igjen. Er blitt helt hekta på Colleen Hoover, og akkurat nå er det en bok på vei i posten til meg, skrevet av nettopp henne. Ønsker deg en flott desemberuke, klem fra Anette 🙂

  9. A lot of people bought Verity this week! Bookish minds think alike? I’ve only tried one of Colleen Hoover’s books, but it wasn’t a good fit for me. I still plan on reading another one of her books in the future, because everyone is always raving about her stories. I hope you have a lovely week!

  10. Yeah it is a crazy time, I have been so busy with all the end of year posts I do this time of year. But the last week of December I take a break from blogging so that will be nice. Hope you get some time to relax with your family!!! Happy Christmas

  11. Have a wonderful time watching Bohemian Rhapsody together, Lexxie@:)). It’s a mad time of year – I’m lucky enough to have now finished my term and now just have to make a start on my Christmas chores… Hopefully this week will be a bit more relaxing!

  12. Olivia-Savannah

    I hope you survive all the busy times that you’re going through! But hey, it’s almost holiday time. I hope you enjoy Jane Eyre, I like that classic a lot. And also I got Maybe Now as well because I couldn’t help stealing that freebie!
