Weekend Wrap-up #305 – Exhausting Week!

Posted 22 February, 2020 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 #305

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:

One Perfect Summer cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

Thank you Harlequin and NetGalley!

Finding Tranquility cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

I won this from Lola @ Lola’s Reviews – Thank you so much! I look forward to reading it 🙂

The Sunday Post #245 – 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 brutal! I have a placement in a middle school for the whole school year as part of my degree, and I have a teacher tutor. We’ve had some problems in the past, but this week things escalated in a weird way. She’s now started to tell me what she wants me to prepare for the next day’s lesson (or even, less than two hours before a lesson) instead of sticking to the planning we’ve done until the end of March. It’s truly exhausting. I’m going to have to meet with the person at Uni who’s responsible for the placements, and with the student councillor so that I can try to find a solution. It’s burning up all of my energy.

This Week’s Puppies in Action:

Freddy and Hercules Heart - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up
Freddy and Hercules are shapes as a heart, don’t you think? <3

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’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble at work. I hope everything works out in your favor. Happy reading!

  2. Aww, it’s cute that your dogs like each other. When I had multiple dogs, they usually kept their distance from each other. Sorry about the work problems. That sounds stressful. I hope you have a great week!

  3. Finding tranquility seems like a good one; cover & title wise anyway, ahaha which is what draws me in xd

    Oh no that’s harsh.. asking you to prepare something a mere 2HOURS before the class sounds so wierd & not professional, I hope you can find a solution to make it easier for you!
    Awww- that’s such a perfect picture of the pups ❤️❤️

    Oh that sounds like a headache! I hope you’re able to get something resolving with the uni people.

    Nice new reads though! They’re new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. Oh yes – do go and see your placement tutor at Uni. That simply isn’t fair – and you’re right, the job is challenging enough without having yet another layer of admin to deal with.

  6. That Freddy/ Hercules pic is priceless!You can’t plan something like that haha! Sorry to hear about the school thing though- hoping it all works out and doesn’t get too difficult. That would be hard to deal with…

  7. Hey Linda, just checking in from Kimberly’s Sunday Post. I am sorry to hear you having difficulties with your work placement – I really hope you are able to sort it out with your tutor. I also hope you have great books to escape in!

  8. Why on earth would she make you do that?! If you have a plan that gets you through the end of March, changing it so that you have to create stuff on the fly is crazy! Hopefully she will recognize that. I have had a few teachers from uni that I have mentored and I would never make them do something like this.

    How frustrating Linda! How is she qualified to be a teacher mentor when she’s basically modeling such horrible teacher practices?! Last minute planning does not produce the best instruction! I’m sorry. I really hope you’re able to find a good solution with your uni!

    That picture is priceless!!! Hugs! Miss You!

  10. I hope you’ll enjoy Finding Tranquility :). I look forward to hearing your thoughts once you finish reading. That sounds exhausting working with that teacher tutor who changes the planning so shortly in advance, why would she do that if you already planned till the end of March. I hope you can find a way to resolve it as that really sounds exhausting dealing with that every day. I hope next week is a better one.

  11. Rachel @Waves of Fiction

    It’s unfortunate this colleague is making things so unnecessarily hard! I hope you’re able to get it sorted. The puppies are adorable! 🙂

    I’m thrilled to see you loved Wild at Heart because I’ve been hesitant to pick it up since I loved the first one so much. I didn’t want it to ruin my feelings for the original story.

  12. Unfortunately not everyone is easy to work with or will stick to a plan. Sigh. Good luck!

    At least you have some great books and puppies to have in your leisure time. The puppies can even support you when you are working. I enjoy Brenda Novak – that looks like a fun new standalone.

    I hope you have a better week! Take a bit of time to relax and read!

    I’m sorry for the work problems Linda. I hope you’ll figure them out soon.
    Those puppies look so cute.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  14. Oh no! Difficult people can zap your energy. I hope they switch you to a better placement! Congrats on winning Finding Tranquility. It’s so much fun to win things 🙂 One Perfect Summer looks good! I hope you enjoy your books! Have a great week Lexxie 🙂
