Weekend Wrap-up #307 – Confinement

Posted 21 March, 2020 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 13 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 #307

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 Priest cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

This was a 5-star read for me – but then again, most anything Tiffany Reisz writes is. And I just adore the Original Sinners, so it was awesome to be back with them for a novel <3

The Sunday Post #247 – 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 has been a pretty weird week, am I right? We’ve been home the whole week, and I’ve been teaching via google classroom / Meet / Zoom. It took a while to set up work for my students in some cases, as not everyone has a computer. Google forms are the best! Because they work on phones, too. I’m still waiting for my oldest to come home from Ireland – and I hope he’ll be able to get home soon.

We only left the house to go grocery shopping or walk the dogs this week. And while I’ve had a lot of work, the pace has been slower than usual.

This Week’s Puppies in Action:

After a walk, some snuggles were in order <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 you and your loved ones are all safe and healthy. *hugs*

    Yeah this is definitely crazy times! Sadly I don’t think I’ll ever be among the ones that get to stay at home because of where I work. If all the essential places stay open, we’ll stay open because those are our customers. It sucks because there’s well over 10 people in the building and we probably get close to 50 in the mornings. I liken it to a game of Russian Roulette because it just feels like we’re asking for something to happen to one of us.

    Nice new read though! I haven’t heard of this one but I’m glad a book you enjoyed got another one in its series/world! Happy Reading this week!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    My kids are doing online school as well. I’ve never read Tiffany, but met her once. She’s nice. Isn’t it weird to think that we are all in similar situations across the globe?

  3. I work for a bank, so it was business as usual for me. The train stations were like ghost towns, and the roads were so empty. It’s quite unsettling, but those of us still going to and from work are encouraging each other. Hope your son gets home soon and safely.

  4. Everything is so different now! Hope you stay safe and well, and that your oldest gets home soon.

    I almost envy the animals because they are blissfully unaware of all the stuff we’re worried about! Although being animals they probably sense our distress on some level…

    Yep, definitely strange. And more surprisingly I am getting things done too. Why haven’t we thunk of this sooner right?

  6. Yes… Himself is still working – he’s a train driver, so we are waiting to see if he will be required on Wednesday when he next goes into work. As for me, I work from home anyway, so nothing much has changed, except I don’t get to attend my fitness classes or take a break at a cafe – which I find matters a lot more than it should… I am writing and reading, though, so there’s that. Stay safe and have a peaceful week, Linda:)

  7. The schools haven’t closed here yet, though they are likely to soon.
    I hope your son joins you soon, with borders closing and flights cancelling its becoming difficult to travel.

    Wishing you a great reading week, be well!

  8. Hope your oldest can get home soon!! I’ve never ready anything by Tiffany Reisz. I’ll have to add her to my list 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  9. Sophia Rose

    Yeah, crazy new normal. Hopefully your oldest will be able to get home soon. We’ve had a quiet week as well. I’ll take it. 🙂

    Have a good week, Linda!

    I agree Tiffany Reisz is very skilled! I hope online Teaching wasn’t much of a hiccup
