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:
Thank you, Tantor Media!
The Sunday Post #212 – 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.
Last weekend, after my wrap-up post was posted, we went up on a mountain close to Geneva, because I wanted to show off the beautiful view of the city 🙂
Today (Saturday) Brandee, Denise and I are at RARE 2019 Paris! And we’re really excited, because we’re also all volunteering to help out. I’m a line ambassador for Ilona Andrews, Brandee is line ambassador for Scarlett Cole, and Denise is helping Jennifer L. Armentrout. We were so excited when we got our assignments, I can’t even begin to explain how we all happy danced at that!
We arrived in Paris on Friday, and we’re sharing photos on the Facebook Page and on Instagram if you want to see what we’re up to 😉
- [12 Apr] This and that…
- [13 Apr] Weekend Wrap-up #273 – Back Home Again
- [14 Apr] RARE Paris We Had All the Fun!
Did you get some good books last week? What have you been up to this past week? Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, and that next week will be filled with awesome!
RARE sounds so fun, especially the volunteering part, and getting to interact with the authors. Hope you guys have a BLAST!!!
And a super week!!!
We had such a good time, Greg! Alas, now, Brandee and Denise are on their way back home, and I miss them already!
Very cool that you all are at RARE Paris, but also assisting authors. Can’t wait to see the pics!
It really was very cool, Sophia! We had a great time, and I loved showing Brandee and Denise around Geneva, too.
got the first Harry Dresden book from the library but there’s a brat blocking me
Oh no! I hope you’ll be able to start reading soon 🙂
Ooh nice!! I’ve always wanted to volunteer at a book event, but then a part of me still enjoys being there as an attendee and enjoying it that way! One of these days I might try giving it a go! Hope you all have fun! I was just wondering what event Jennifer was attending since I saw her Paris pics on Instagram! Never been there myself, but would love to go. I’d be happy to just go back to Italy! Lol.
Hope you enjoy all of your new reads and find some good ones at the event too! I can never pass up on signed books! Lol!
My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
We were able to get our own books signed during the early entry, then we helped out until 2:45, when there were still two hours left before the signing was over, so we got time to do everything.
Yes, Jennifer was at RARE, too, and it was fun to see her again 🙂
RARE19 Paris sounds so exciting! It’s a while before any of the events I’ve planned for the year. I really wanted to go to Book Lovers Con in New Orleans, but it was not in the budget for this year. I hope you guys have a great time!
I wanted to go to Book Lovers Con, too – but it’s during the school year here, and I couldn’t take time off work 🙁 What events are you going to, Tanya? Brandee and I are both going to BookBonanza in August 🙂
I was debating on Book Bonanza, since it is here. I like to stay in the con hotels though so I don’t have to drive in every day. I haven’t budgeted for it, but maybe I’ll look into it again. It would be cool to see you and Brandee! I know you guys are planning on meeting up with some of the other local bloggers around here, so it would be fun!
Have a fab time at Rare, it sounds brilliant. And volunteering sounds fun, lovely to really be a part of it.
It was awesome, Trish! We had a fantastic time 🙂
OMG!! What a great experience in Paris! Very jealous, but happy for you all. The cover of Defy Me is hypnotizing!
Ah that sounds amazing, have so much fun!! 🙂
It was great, Jen! We had a fantastic time.
The story of Defy Me was hypnotizing, too 😉
So exciting! I look forward to hearing more about your trip next week!
I thought about getting the Scent of Murder and then read more about it and found it there wasn’t too much about dog training and decided against it so I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts. I read Hidden and I’m a Zanetti fan. Have an amazing week!
Anne – Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post
We had such a good time, Anne! And we’ll have more good times – with you included! – in August 🙂
I got a signed copy of Hidden in Paris, I can’t wait to start reading it 🙂
I envy your beautiful trips!
Enjoy your books…I’m curious about the Maisey Yates book.
Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
I absolutely love my trips, Laurel-Rain, and this one was special because I got to show Brandee around my home town 🙂
Whoa! You’re at RARE with Sophie (Beware of the Reader), and it sounds like a fabulous event. That’s pretty awesome that you all are line ambassadors. I hope you all have an amazing time. I just starting listening to Maisey Yates books, and I am enjoying them.
I actually managed to NOT meet Sophie 🙁 But Brandee and Sophie both worked with Scarlett Cole, so they got to meet 🙂
How lucky to be able to help out the authors. RARE sounds exciting and glad you enjoyed your time there. The Scent Of Murder is on list to read too. Sounds great and I love the cover!
It was so much fun, Laura! We had a great time 🙂
Rare Paris sounds exciting and getting to help out your favorite authors! I want to see pics! I love Rebecca Zanetti!
Lindy@ A Bookish Escaps
It really was exciting, Lindy, and it was lovely to see more of Ilona and Gordon! They are so nice, and I look forward to seeing them again in RARE London in September 🙂
So happy to see you!
Me, too, Melliane! It was great to FINALLY actually meet you 🙂
Sounds like you guys are having a blast!!! It seems A Scent of Murder is a popular grab this week I got it too! 🙂
Have a great week!
Week in Review
We had a great time, Stormi!
I hope we’ll both enjoy A Scent of Murder 🙂
I have loved seeing your pictures from Paris! What exactly is a line ambassador though?
A line ambassador helps the line move smoothly, and since Ilona Andrews was a ticketed author, there was one person – Harley – who made sure everyone had their wristbands and that the board was up to date with the ticket numbers. I was at the front of the line, taking pictures of readers with Ilona and Gordon, and sometimes translating when they were uncomfortable speaking English 🙂 It was amazing!
Looks like you are all having so much fun together. I will take a hit your FB page soon! Have a great week ahead.
It was a lot of fun, Gayathri! And awesome to finally spend time with my bloggerwife in Europe 🙂
Sounds like you’re all having a terrific time, and what an amazing opportunity!
I hope you’re having an amazing time at RARE Paris. It must be such an amazing opportunity to be a line ambassador for an author.
Happy readings! 😉
OMG! Jennifer L. Armentrout and Ilona Andrews are two of my favourites! Hope you’re all having a wonderful time.
What a fabulous experience! Cons are always so much fun, but very, very intense… I do hope you are able to rest and recover once you return home:))
Congrats and I hope you all enjoyed it. I’m sure you did. Have a great week.
Melanie @ Hot Listens & Books of My Heart
What an awesome experience , I’m jealous!
Have a great reading week 🙂
