Weekend Wrap-up #293 Back Home, And Falling Back

Posted 26 October, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 19 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 #293

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:

Oh my gosh, I went a little crazy with ARCs this past week – and they’re all for 2020… I kind of blame Lauren @ BookmarkLit, as she shared her most anticipated 2020 relases

I don’t even have the time to download and upload all the covers, that’s how bad it is, but here’s a link to my Goodreads 2020 Releases shelf, all the ones added on October 25th are ARCs I got this past week 😉 Of course, NetGalley and Edelweiss were way too good to me 😀

The Sunday Post #233 – 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.

We spent a few days in Oslo, Norway this past week, as #3 is there for the whole school year. It was awesome to see him again! And as an added bonus, we got to spend lots of time with my mom, my step-dad, my sister, my nieces and my brother-in-law. The weather was gorgeous, and the fall colors so beautiful it almost hurt!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve changed my name from Lexxie (my internet name) to Linda (my real name). I did this mostly because I had trouble actually reacting when people called me Lexxie in real life lately. It’s just easier this way 🙂

    Glad you had a lovely trip visiting your son and your family. Pretty fall colors and even the dogs got into it. 🙂 I’ll have to check out your big haul. I kinda went wild with a haul this week, too.

    Have a great week, Linda!

  2. Haha congrats on the ARC’s! You can never have too many… well, maybe… 🙂

    Glad you had a great trip! It looks beautiful there with the fall colors. 🙂

    Hope you have a fabulous week.

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. That’s so nice that you got to visit with everyone over in Oslo. It must have been hard to leave #3. There you are giving me ARC envy again. I finally read The Simple Wild, and am salivating over your copy of Wild at Heart. I am still considering downloading Grown-Up Pose. The author’s last book was good, but I was so mad at what she did at the end. So, you know, trust issues.

    if you didn’t bring it up I wouldn’t have pickd up that you had changed your name to your real one ! But Norway is SO PRETTY!

  6. I noticed your name change and was so confused lol. It will take me some time to get used to not writing Lexxie! lol
    My favorite is when the trees change colors. The park by my house looks amazing with all the trees all different colors. I just love it!

    I hope you have an awesome week, Linda! I am so scared to look at the 2020 list on goodreads lol. Happy Reading! xx Miss you!

  7. I nearly skipped your blog as I was looking for Lexxie:). But I understand… Your trip to Oslo looks lovely. I hope your new haul will provide you with a lot of stormingly good reads! Have a great week, Linda.

  8. I’m so glad you had a week off and such a beautiful place to travel. I hope you are feeling much better and can have a bit of time for yourself this week even with school. Wow Linda, lots of 2020 books. I have several but I don’t shelve them separately. Happy reading!

  9. I’m trying to stay away from more ARCs. I’m behind as it is. LOL The trip sounds wonderful, Linda:) And the pups look like they are enjoying fall.

  10. The name change was confusing but I don’t blame you for switching to your given one.
    Norway looks so beautiful. I’d love to visit it some day. I’m glad you had a nice visit seeing your family!
    I only have 2 2020 ARCs. I’m struggling to finish this years! :-/

    I didn’t notice that name change, but since I knew both names it may not have registered. lol!

    Sounds like you had a good time in Norway – I didn’t realize you had so much family there (I get confused about where everyone is easily), but that’s great for your son to be there with family.

    Hope you’re having a good week back (and you didn’t mention it, so can I assume you’re feeling better? I hope so!). {{HUGS}}
