Weekend Wrap-up #295

Posted 10 November, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 31 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 #295

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 the authors, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley!

The Sunday Post #235 – 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.

This week was long, very long, work-wise. It was a rather good week, though, but I’m still very happy it’s the weekend. And I’m counting down the days until Christmas, as my 17 year old will be home for the holiday. I can’t wait to have everybody at home for a while.

Have you signed up for COYER?` We did, and it has some fun twists for this winter challenge 🙂

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!

  1. I’m looking forward to Christmas too, I’m totally in the mood for it this year haha! Hope your holiday season gets off to a great start!

    It is already time for Christmas? OMG time flies. I will try and read some seasonal books but I have a lot on my TBR already so I am not so sure. I hope you have a great week ahead with your kids.

  3. Jane Anonymous sounds really intriguing! I might have to keep an eye open for that one.
    I’m happy you’re looking forward to Christmas so you can see your kiddo, but I need time to slow down a bit or I won’t have my Xmas knitting done. 😉

  4. I’m still regarding Christmas with a shudder, but then I’m not remotely prepared for it – we have a slew of birthdays to get through first…

  5. I hope you have a great week Linda, and I’m glad you’ve a real gathering of the clan to look forward to over the Christmas break (sorry about the two-part comment, I pressed the button in the middle…)

  6. I just had to look up If You Give a Jerk.., and it sounds so fun! I saw your review too, and if it’s 5-star worthy, it’s definitely worth a look. The holidays are all about family for me, and like you, I will be happy to have my child home (though it will only be for a few days).

    • It was so much fun to read, Sam, and it was a quick read, too. The first Reindeer Fall book was awesome as well.
      A few days is better than no days, right? How old is yours? My 17-year-old is the third of four, and all the others are still here, but I still miss him like crazy!

      • My daughter is grown and gone. She is 24, turning 25 in Feb, but it feels like she has been gone since she’s 18, as she went away to school and grad school, and now lived 700 miles away.

  7. I’m thinking of joining COYER, but I’m already struggling to complete some of my year-long challenges, so we will see.

    I know you’ll be glad to see your 17-year-old at Christmas! We’ll be spending Christmas with family, including our Robin, and I can’t wait.

  8. I’m glad it was a good week even though it was long. I feel that way sometimes, a good tired when things happen. I’m so excited, as always for COYER. Have a great week and enjoy those new books!

    Anne – Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post

    Yes, it was a busy week, indeed. Glad you had a good one and got some fun books in your haul. You remind me that I need to get on the stick and get my COYER post up. 🙂

    Have a great week, Linda!

    I hope you had a relaxing weekend after your busy work week!
    I can’t wait for Christmas either. I’m hosting Christmas dinner for the first time this year since we now have a big kitchen and a new home and I’m so excited.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

    I’m sorry you had a long week, but at least it was a good one. I hope your weekend was relaxing enough to send you into this week refreshed 🙂 Not long until Christmas, it’ll be here in a flash. But I’m sure it feels a long ways away with your youngest away.

    Have a great week {{HUGS}}

    I just wrote you a long response and it’s just gone. Anyway, I’m glad your child will be home soon for Christmas. I’m going back home this year too. 9 1/2 hours drive alone. Hope you have a great week!
