Weekend Wrap-up #291 – Fall is Slowly on its Way

Posted 5 October, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 21 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 #291

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’ve already devoured The Play, and I loved it so much. Of course, I can’t wait to read Winter Tales. I love the Original Sinners series to pieces. I wanted to read We Need To Talk because I quit my job in finance nine years ago to get back to Uni and follow my dream to be a teacher… talking about money and wealth is important in may ways – we shall see what I’ll think about it.


The Sunday Post #231 – 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.

Sorry I’ve been missing in action lately! I’ve been very busy with work and school, and from September 21-28, I was in Colchester in England on a study trip with 19 students from the school where I teach. Colchester is the oldest town in England, there were already people there before the Romans arrived in 97 AD. Even if the students didn’t always behave themselves, the other teacher and I had a great time. The students stayed with a student from a school there, and us teachers stayed with teachers from there.

This week has been tough, I caught a cold on the way back from England, and I had to catch up on stuff for Uni, plus a lot to do with my teaching. Thank goodness it’s the weekend! Even if I have some work to do, there will be time for some rest and some play, too!

    OOh nice new reads! All new to me ones but glad you enjoyed one of them already! Hope the next two are equally enjoyable!

    Wow! Sounds like busy times! I’d love to see England one day! I have London on my Bucket List. I do like traveling, but it’s so hard to do it! Mostly because of the cost but also because a lack of vacation time. There are only so many days I can take off and I like to save a few for author related events!

    Hope you have a great week ahead and that your cold leaves you soon too!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    • Jessica, have you not read the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh? I’m pretty sure you’d love that one – it’s right up your alley.
      I am lucky to have plenty of vacation (like most European countries have), but I understand wanting to save your days for special author related events.
      Thanks for stopping by!

    No worries about needing to take care of real life and not being online as much. You really did have a packed schedule. I remember when I was teaching and took kids on field trips and even took kids to camps, even when nothing went wrong, I was stressed being responsible for other people’s kids. LOL

    That is a fabulous haul. Hope you have a good time with all those. I still need to get Sweep of the Blade eventually.

    Puppies are cute laying with their Canada pillow. 🙂

    Have a good week, Lexxie!

    • I know I shouldn’t worry about the blog, but I still do. And things are just too busy these days for me to do everything I want to do.
      Field trips are exhausting, even if they’re fun.
      I got the Canada pillow from a really good friend in Canada this past week, and the dogs adopted it promptly 🙂 Have a good week yourself, Sophia 🙂

  3. Hope you feel better! I always hate it when I come back from traveling with a cold or something. Sounds like you had a great trip though- that sounds super interesting.

    Cute pic! 🙂

    Have a great weekend Lexxie!

    I hope you are feeling better soon! Your trip to Colchester sounds interesting. So much history there! Winter Tales sounds perfect for the upcoming season. I love that cover. I hope you love Sweep of the Blade as much as I did. I hope you have a great weekend and coming week!

  5. Love the Canada pillow. I was actually there for an afternoon the other day. Sorry you caught a cold, but I am glad you enjoyed the trip to England. What a wonderful trip for your students! The Play is out and I still have not started that series. I own the first two books though, which is a good start.

  6. Winter Tales looks really good! I definitely can’t wait to see how you enjoy that one. That trip sounds fantastic, but sorry you didn’t feel well. Here’s hoping you get a break!

  7. Glad you enjoyed your trip to Colchester – you were mostly lucky with the weather this last week, although there were some rainstorms scattered around… I hope you enjoy Sweep of the Blade – I do love that series. Have a good week and I hope the cold soon vanishes, Lexxie.

  8. I’m glad you are back here and hope you feel much better this week! I have yet to go to England and I really want to go. I’ve been around most of the rest of Europe. Someday. It sounds fun even though it was work. I’m sure you are very busy now so take care of yourself and enjoy those new books! Elle Kennedy – I like that series.

    I’m eyeing your Karina Halle ARC with some jealousy – though if I’m realistic I know I couldn’t get through it fast enough anyway (the reason I’ve stopped requesting ARCs).

    Sounds like an amazing week – the historian in me is incredibly jealous of your trip to Colchester. I studied that area a decent amount when I was in grad school as part of my required MA reading. If I recall, Colchester had Britain’s only Roman Chariot Racing Track… I may be remembering wrong, but I think there was a museum there and I think that would be incredibly cool to see. Of course, as an American who’s never made it to Europe, anything that old is amazing to me. Someday I’ll get to Europe. Maybe I’ll even get to bring Dante!

    Good luck getting caught up and getting in some rest! Miss you!! {{HUGS}}
