Weekend Wrap-up #265 – Fast Week

Posted 9 February, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 31 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 #265

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 Right Man cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upThe Risk cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upUnforgettable You cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

Thank you to the authors for these ARCs! I’m really excited about them 🙂

I also got an ARC for When the Gods Forget (Forgotten Gods series #2) by Kennedy Daly. And I just can’t wait to read it. Watch this space for a cover reveal fairly soon!

The Sunday Post #205 – 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 went by really fast – and it was a very busy week. Sadly, I’ve had trouble sleeping this week, so I’m pretty tired. Thank goodness it’s the weekend! Between work and a lot of meetings, I haven’t been home much.

This Week’s Puppies in Action:

    Nice haul for the week. I just got an older Elle Kennedy college series book for freebie that I think is connected to The Risk. Ah, that cover on the Brenda Novak book is so relaxing. Hey! I got Courting Darkness this week, too.
    Sorry about the lack of sleep. I had a couple nights like that when we had a lot of high wind rattling the the trees and house through the night. Hopefully, you can catch up on sleep this weekend.
    Haha! Yes, they do look eager for their walk. 🙂

    • I absolutely love Elle Kennedy! I only started reading her books in late 2017, and I think I’ve read almost all of them now 😮
      I agree, that cover is awesome.
      I hope we’ll both enjoy Courting Darkness, Sophia 🙂 And that we’ll also continue to sleep well at night!

    Nice new reads! New to me ones though I hear good things about Robin Lafevers! Hope you enjoy your new reads!

    I feel like I struggle to fall asleep on a nightly basis. I almost wonder if I have a low form of insomnia. I mean I eventually fall asleep like on weekends I stay up later whereas during the week I try to go to bed early because I get up early to exercise. I usually end up taking a sleep aid and it’s 50/50 if it will work or not! Lol. Hope you’re able to get some rest this weekend and that you’re able to sleep better next week! 🙂

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

    • Ugh! Not being able to fall asleep is so hard! And sometimes, I wake up around two, and spend a couple of hours awake before I fall asleep again 🙁 I hope you’ll be able to sleep better, too, Jessica!
      Robin Lafevers is awesome! I loved her first series, and I can’t wait to see what’s up with this new duology 🙂
      Have a great weekend.

  3. Sorry you had trouble sleeping this week. I bet it had to do with how busy you were with so much stuff going on. Great haul! I got Faith Hunter and Donna Grant ARCs to keep me busy. Unfortunately I don’t think I’m going to get my book club book read unless I spend some serious time reading! Sleep better and have a great week!

  4. Ooh Courting Darkness. I’ve been seeing that everywhere lately and it reminds me I still need to go back and read the rest of the prior series. I really liked Grave Mercy!

    Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend! 🙂

  5. Yes I had some sleep problems too. Otherwise a quiet week. I hope to get Unforgettable You on audiobook. I’ve been listening to the Silver Springs ones. I’ve just had Courting Darkness brought to my attention. Robin loves that series.

    • Ugh! Hopefully we’ll both sleep well this coming week, Anne!
      I love the Silver Spring series, and I hope you’ll get Unforgettable You on audio, too!
      I love the series Courting Darkness comes from – and I’m really excited about reading it! Have a great week, Anne!

  6. Robin LaFevers is an author that I often think I should get hold of – and that cover is just gorgeous… So sorry you are struggling with sleep, it’s a miserable business and I hope it’s only a quick blip:). I hope you have a more restful week, Lexxie.

    It’s hard to function with so little sleep. Hope you catch up!

    Oh, I want the Elle Kennedy! Glad to see Free by KA was a hit. It’s been a while since I’ve picked up a KA. Happy reading! 🙂

    I hope you’re able to catch up on sleep! It looks like you have a lot of good reading ahead of you.

    Freddy and Hercules are so darn adorable! Sorry you have been so busy at work, I hope it slows down a bit. I just got Robin Lafevers book also. I hope we both love it! I hope you have a great week ahead!


  10. Your dogs are adorable – I always love when you post photos of them. Sorry you’re having trouble sleeping. I can relate. I’ve been awake in the middle of the night for at least an hour or two every night for the last two weeks. Here’s hoping whatever’s keeping each of us awake gives us a break soon.
