Weekend Wrap-up #287 – Back Home for a While

Posted 3 August, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 28 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 #287

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 these past two weeks:

The Sunday Post #227 – 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’ve been home for just over a week, and it’s been nice – especially once the heat wave ended. On Tuesday, Mr. Lex and I went to Zürich to see P!nk in concert, and it was absolutely fantastic!

Now, I’m starting to prepare everything I need to bring with me to Dallas and BookBonanza next week. I can’t wait to go see some of my favorite bloggers! (And of course, some of my favorite authors, too 😉 )

I have also started to prepare the school year, as school starts again on August 26th. I have more hours than anticipated, which is both a blessing and a curse. I’ll have a good salary, but I’ll also be very busy, since I still have one more year of Uni left as well. I also went downtown to have a drink with a friend from Uni, and this is the view I had :

Summer in Geneva <3

  1. Nice view! Geneva looks quite nice in the summer. 🙂 And yay for BookBonanza- hope you have an awesome time!

    Glad it cooled down too. It has here as well, thankfully!

    The P!nk concert sounds like a blast.

    Ironically we’ve had a bit of a cool down this weekend too! Not my kind of cool, but enough that my parents decided on an impromptu camping trip! Lol. So I’m watching our fur monsters who woke me up at 4 this morning and then one continued barking for 2.5 hours where I beg, pleaded, and threatened to no avail to be quiet and let me sleep! I had fallen asleep after midnight last night so I’m running a little low on energy thanks to them! Will likely have no trouble falling asleep tonight! Lol.

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

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

  3. My mom’s friends in Switzerland were telling her how folks in Europe don’t have a AC at their places so this heat wave was rough. I’m glad it’s easing off now. How fun that you got to see Pink! She is one of my faves and I would love to see her in concert.
    Ahh! School! It sounds a bit nerve-wracking, but you will rock it. A good salary is always a great perk – more books! 😀
    I hope you have a good weekend, Lexxie!

    • Where in Switzerland are they? It’s true that in northern and middle Europe, there is no AC – we have AC in our apartment in Spain, but not in our house in Switzerland. It’s brutal!
      P!nk was so good! It’s the first time we had an opportunity to see her – and we absolutely loved it 🙂
      School is good. It’s going to be my fifth year teaching, so I don’t find it nerve-wracking anymore 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by, Nick! I hope your jetlag is better!

  4. I bet P!nk is amazing live. She’s a fantastic performer. Oooh, new Shalvis. I adore her books. Wow! You’re coming all the way to Texas for a book event. You are making me feel like a slacker for not traveling the 30 mins to BookCon. I hope your trip is safe and amazing.

    • It was one of the best performances I’ve ever been to! She’s truly amazing, and I am so happy I finally got to see her live.
      The new Shalvis book is really good, I couldn’t help myself and read it straight away 🙂
      Yeah, I’m going to Texas for a book event, it’s also so I can see my blogger friends, and of course, all the authors are a nice bonus 🙂 I think sometimes, it’s easier to go far for something than to go somewhere close. It’s more of an adventure to go to Dallas than to go to downtown Geneva 😉

    • I’ve started reading Bang Bang, and I had to take a break – it’s a romantic comedy, I think, and it’s very silly. I was not in the mood for silly right now.
      P!nk was truly amazing! If you get the chance to see her, you should go.

  5. Your concert sounds like fun.

    Lots of tempting books, too. How is the summer over already? I’ve spent all summer dealing with my infected/inflamed gall bladder, which should have been removed on July 22. But, no, complications. So more waiting.

    I hope your new school year is good for you.

  6. That concert sounds like so much fun! Good luck preparing for the school year. I hope the extra hours aren’t too hard on you! I hope you enjoy all your new reads!

  7. Oh I enjoy Pink! I want that Jill Shalvis book but I don’t even try to request other than audio.

    I can’t wait to see you! I hope it will be nice travels for you! I’m looking forward to listening to audio on my travels. My daughter’s school starts August 15th so it will be busy when I get back.

  8. Literary Feline

    Looks like you’ve got some great books to read! Shalvis and Graham are always such fun and addicting authors to read. I hope you have a great time in Dallas!

    School is coming far too soon, if you ask me. I wish you a wonderful school year! Have a great week!

  9. Book Bonanza is in Texas right? You want heat you got it. Texas is sweltering in the summer. Just ignore me, I’m just jealous! Ha! I know you all will have so much fun. I can’t wait to see pictures. As always, I love your dog picture and your view was beautiful.

  10. We also got a heat wave a few weeks ago, the weather has been much more pleasant sine it ended. That’s great to your the concert you went to was so good. That’s a nice picture you took during your visit with your friend from uni. That’s good you have a lot of hours next year, but it does sound like it will be busy. And that picture of your dogs is great too!
