Weekend Wrap-up #275 – Nice Break

Posted 27 April, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 48 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 #275

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 JA Huss!
I already read Sweet Thing, and I loved it!

Arranged cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

I already read Arranged to, and it was a heart-wrenching masterpiece 🙂

The Sunday Post # – 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.

Our week in Spain was really nice! I’m still in Spain as I write this, but we’re leaving in a couple of hours to get back home so we’ll be ready for the new week. The weather was rather sketchy here, cool and overcast, but we finally got some sun yesterday, and I got a sunburn on my forehead 😀 It’s been a very nice and relaxing week, which has done wonders for all of us!

    • I loved Arranged, Gen! I have read some reviews, though, and people either loved it or absolutely hated it…
      It was the first time there we had such gloomy weather, so we didn’t mind, and we got some nice, spooky pictures 😀

    Glad you had a nice time in Spain! Sounds like a dream! Lol.

    I bet that sunburn looks pretty interesting!(lol) I’ve been sunburned once on my arms and legs, and it sure was no fun, so I hope you feel better soon! Little does Freddy know that his spot will be unavailable very soon.(lol) I’m not a beachy person, but looking at the sand makes me want to walk in it just a little in the evening when it’s cool. Hope your weekend is amazing! Hugs…RO

    I’m sure that even with the overcast weather you all had a lovely time away. Yay for that last sunny day. Nice that you already took care of your book haul books for the week. I need to look up the second one- new to me author.
    The dogs enjoyed their time, too, I see.

    Safe travels, Lexxie!

    So glad you had a nice, relaxing time in Spain! Even with sketchy weather the break would be so worth it.

  5. Ha Freddy in the wind! I bet they just love it there on the beach and whatnot. 🙂 Glad you had a good week, although sorry to hear the weather was iffy. Hope you have a great weekend Lexxie!!

  6. Too bad the weather wasn’t what you had hoped for, but it is always nice to get away. Safe travels home. Have a wonderful weekend Lexxie.

  7. I’m glad you had a nice week in Spain Lexxie. Sounds like a perfect week to get a little rest.
    I hope you got home save. Say hi to those beautiful Swiss mountains for me! 😉
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  8. Awww, him in the bookshelves IS super adorable 🙂 I’m finally back from hiatus! Too bad about your sunburn – we had like real hot weather for the past few days. Well, I say hot, I mean like 24, but last week I was wearing a coat and gloves, so it’s a bit of a jump xD

    • I know, right? He was just too cute for me not to take a picture 🙂
      It was actually rather cool in Spain, we only had one day with sun, but since it didn’t feel warm, I didn’t put on any sunscreen… it’s already better – we weren’t out that long.
      And here in Geneva, it’s really cold again. I’m ready for summer now.

  9. I’ve recently had some time off work because of the Easter hols but it was a stay at home holiday. Got lots of reading and blogging done. I love getting away though, and hope to jump on a plane and go somewhere warmer during the summer holidays finance permitting *fingerscrossed*.
    I can’t believe you still worked on this blog post while on holiday 😉 thanks for sharing the pictures though. x

  10. I am really glad you have had a good break in Spain. Sometimes it doesn’t matter too much about the weather – but just is great to get away… I hope that the coming term isn’t quite so gruelling, Lexxie.

  11. Glad you had a relaxing time! I go back to reality tomorrow as well! And I can’t wait to see your review of Code Name Genesis-it looked really good!

    You seem to have a great vacation and your dogs sure seem to have. I hope you are back to your place. I hope you have a great week ahead.
