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.
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. Before the new year started, there was an implosion regarding RWA – I won’t write about it here – apart from saying #IStandWithCourtneyMilan. However, that had me buying a LOT of books by marginalized authors (over 60!) and I won’t list them all here – but authors I bought include Courtney Milan, Beverly Jenkins, Suleikha Snyder, Tracey Livesay, Melissa Blue, Farrah Rochon, Xan West, Robin Covington, Erica Ridley, Pintip Dunn, Seressia Glass, and Alyssa Cole. I got a couple of ARCs that I wanted to share, and that’s it for new books.
You may already know – Brandee and I are doing an Unearthing a Bookish Bounty, where we’ll read books we already own. So I (probably) won’t be adding many new books to my shelves this year. Feel free to join us!
The Sunday Post #240 – 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 holiday has been mostly relaxing for me. I’ve hung out with family and friends, I have read some books, and I have taken naps. It was very much needed after all the hustle of the past semester. Of course, I did have some papers to grade, but I managed to only do a few per day – after a full week off – so it didn’t feel like too much to do. Work starts again on Monday, and I hope I’ll be able to manage my time, and stay on top of everything again until the end of the semester in June!
