Weekend Wrap-up #296 – Thank Goodness It’s the Weekend!

Posted 16 November, 2019 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 15 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 #296

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:

The Rebel King cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

The Testaments cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

I was pretty good this week, right? Only two books total 🙂 YAY me.

The Sunday Post #236 – 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 wee was exhausting! On both Tuesday and Thursday, I was away from home for work, Uni, or meetings for 15 hours… And I still had to work on Monday and Wednesday, too. Thank goodness I didn’t have class on Friday. And my goal for the day was to stay in my pajamas the whole day. Guess how well I did with that? Maybe I’ll do a Weekend Wrap-up giveaway for that? I have two surprise paperbacks to give away to a blogger in Europe. Comment below and add what European country you live in if you want to enter 🙂

This Week’s Puppies in Action:

Lazy Puppies (possibly because my Friday was pretty lazy…)
Freddy kept me company while I was reading.


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!

    I plan on having a few lazy days next week! I’m taking off to travel for a signing and come back the same day, so Thursday will be filled with sleeping in and then reading for the rest of day! Sadly, I timed this poorly with other family events that popped up. My nice quiet Friday at home will be filled with people and I may not get much reading in. 🙁

    Hope you enjoy your new reads!! They are new to me ones but I’ve of course heard of Atwood’s newest release! Happy Reading!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    Yeah, getting a day off after that sort of week would be happiness. Ahhh, cute reading pup companion. One or the other of my cats has started jumping into my lap now that it’s getting cooler.

    Hopefully, you’ll have an easier week coming, Linda!

  3. Gold star for surviving those long days. I spend one day per weekend just staying in to recover from my week. It’s keeps me sane, but I have an empty nest and can do such things.

  4. That’s an exhausting week, Linda! I hope they all aren’t going to be like that. Nice to be able to relax with your lovely pups, though. I hope you enjoy The Testaments and that this coming week is a lot easier!

  5. You got The Testaments! I want that book so bad because The Handmaid’s Tale is my favorite book ever, but I’m currently spending all my money on Christmas gifts. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great week!

  6. I like your plan to stay home in your pajamas. You deserved it after such a long and exhausting week.
    I hope you’ll enjoy your new books.
    Pups look adorable! 😉
    And… I am a blogger from Europe. I live in Croatia. 🙋

  7. Yay for pajama day! I’m wearing pajama pants, does that count? Kennedy Ryan ! I really enjoyed her at Book Bonanza. I’m glad you are enjoying her books – I’m trying to get there.

    I hope you have a better week ahead. Happy reading!

    Anne – Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post   

  8. Oh Linda, how exhausting! I’ve had days like that teaching, so I know how badly you need a chance to rest. I hope you’re taking it this weekend.

    Happy reading {{Hugs}}
