Weekend Wrap-up #289 – 1st Week Survival

Posted 31 August, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 32 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 #289

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:

I got a book from Edelweiss – Feels Like Falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey – but it doesn’t have a cover yet. It’s due to be released in April 2020 by Gallery Books.

The Sunday Post #229 – 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.

Apart from working, and information sessions at Uni, it’s been fairly quiet here. It’s been really hot, too, but that’s supposed to change from next week.

This Week’s Puppies in Action:

Puppies - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up
They love sleeping close together, and I love to watch them do that <3

I am absolutely exhausted! Having to get up at 6am every day and having a very active schedule takes some getting used to! I love being back to work, though, meeting new (and some not new) students, seeing my colleagues again, and just teach my little heart out makes me happy.

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!

    We had a bit of a break from the heat this week, but then it snapped back by the end of the week! I’m ready for fall weather myself! I hope your school year goes well, sounds like it’s off to a good start!

    Nice new reads too! New to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. When I was a teacher, those first few weeks back were tough. Glad to hear you are enjoying your return to work though. The pups are too cute!

    A quiet week is just the thing and glad you had a good time seeing new and old faces at work and uni. The puppies do look sweet cuddled together.

    Have a good week, Lexxie!

  4. It’s started to really cool down here- at least this past week it did. Hope you get a break from the heat soon. And glad your teaching year is starting off good! Hope you have an amazing weekend!!

  5. I hope you are able to put your feet up a bit this weekend and glad you are really enjoying being back in the classroom – it’s a job that can eat you up if it stops being fun. Have a great week, Lexxie:)

    We are supposed to get cooler weather around here too. I´ll wait and see what happens. Besides a bad surprise a few days ago, I feel like life is not nice at the moment. Well, there will – hopefully – be better times again. Have a great time!

  7. Beware Of The Reader

    Ha yes back to school takes some time to get used to it Lexxie! But soon you’ll be used to that schedule!

  8. Looks like you have had a busy week there, hopefully you will adjust to the new schedule soon there. I hope you enjoy Play It Safe…I still need to read that one.

  9. I’m glad that your job makes you happy. I hope you settle into the early starts and busy days again quickly!
    I go back to full work weeks after working 3 days a week during the summer and I’m not looking forward to it one bit! :/

  10. I’m so glad it’s good to be back to work and all even though it is an adjustment with the new schedule. I hope you get settled into it and continue to enjoy seeing everyone. Have a great week and enjoy some wonderful books.
