Weekend Wrap-up #267 – Norway

Posted 24 February, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 37 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 #267

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:

Until You cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upThe Governess Affair cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upThe Duchess War cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upThe Heiress Effect cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upThe Countess Conspiracy cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upThe Suffragette Scandal cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upTalk Sweetly to Me cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

As you can see, there’s a lot of Courtney Milan here, and there’s a reason for that. You have probably heard about the plagiarism that was discovered last week, and how Courtney Milan (who was informed by a reader) was the first to talk about it. And she went right out there naming and shaming. I loved the sentences Milan had crafted (and that had been stolen by #CopyPasteCris) so I bought all her Brothers Sinister novels and novellas.I have read most of them now, and they are truly AMAZING! I have no idea why I hadn’t picked up a Milan novel before now.

The Sunday Post #207 – 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 was so nice and calm! My youngest daughter and I were in Norway with my family. It was so nice to see everyone again, and my youngest niece has grown so much since I last saw her!

The whole week was made of relaxation, good conversations, amazing books, and more relaxation. Just what I needed, to be sure!

    You remind me. I have a stack of Courtney Milan books that I absolutely need ot get read. I like that Jeannie Moon one, too.

    Oh fun! Glad you are having a splendid visit with your family.

    Oh wow! Norway is gorgeous!!

    Nice new reads too! All totally new to me ones but I hope you will enjoy them all! Have a GREAT week this week!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

    I saw all that craziness with #copypastecris! Unbelievable what some people have the nerve to do!

    So glad you had a nice relaxing visit with your family. It’s good to get a break! Beautiful pictures!

  4. Ugh the #CopyPasteCris fiasco is such a nightmare. And it seems never ending-each time I log onto Twitter, someone has found AnOTHER book she stole. CRAZY!
    Norway looks beautiful!

  5. Norway is beautiful, and I’m glad you had such an enjoyable time there.

    Your books also look tempting… with lovely covers. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog. Enjoy your week!

  6. Gosh I love those dressed in your book haul! I’ve always been a weakling for dresses 🙂 although I’ve never worn one like that xD

    And I heard about #CopyPasteCris. Have you noticed that most of these scandals seem to happen in the romance genre industry? I guess it’s where the biggest money lies, or maybe those cheats just think the reader is stupid enough to believe the lies? It’s disgraceful 🙁

    I’m really happy to see you supporting the authors who suffered because of this, just like you did during the last one.

    Wishing you a great week!

  7. With so many readers out there loyal to their favorite authors, how can they think to get away with something like this. Shame on them! Norway looks beautiful and I’m glad you had a wonderful relaxing trip, Lexxie:)

  8. I just searched that hashtag. Yikes! Your pictures are amazing. Norway is a bucket list place for me. Glad to hear you had a wonderful visit.

    I would never feel bored of seeing snowy photographs. I already miss winter here. I hope you are having fun with the family, in Norway.

  10. The plagiarism scandal has been really shocking. I love that you bought some of Milan’s books. I’ve read one and really enjoyed it. I think it’s time to read more! Have you read any of Nora Roberts’ blog posts? I think Courtney has linked a few. That is not a woman to anger! I’m listening to one of her books now in support. There are a few people on Twitter who are interpreting what Roberts is saying as an insult to self pubs in general but I honestly don’t see how. I think there are some people on Twitter who just will be offended. I love the pictures of Norway! It’s gorgeous! Hope you’re having a great week!

  11. Lex, darling, I can’t believe you hadn’t read Milan! I love her! And I actually picked up most of that series last week (the ones I didn’t already have) and it wasn’t for the same reason. Hmm… Somehow I missed the hullabaloo over #copypastecris. I’ll have to go searching so I can get the scoop. 😉 I’m so happy you and #4 had such a wonderful time in Norway. I love the pics!
    *smooches* and {{{{big hugs}}}}

  12. I must have missed this whole plagiarism anger completely. I own some Milan novels myself, and hope that I can complete her series soon. I agree with you all, this is ugly and I will never understand how a person can do this. And when I think that those, who dare to do it call themself author too – how can they?! *shakes her head*

    Glad that you had a wonderful week in Norway. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures with us. Feels good to look at them.

    Best wishes
    Vi

  13. I’m glad you’ve had such a great time in Norway! Sometimes we all need such a week. Those photo’s look beautiful. 😉
    I have heard about that plagiarism thing.. I just don’t get that!! Why do people do that?
    Have a great week and happy reading.
