Weekend Wrap-up #317 – It’s a Wrap

Posted 27 June, 2020 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 37 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 #316

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:

Emerald Blaze cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

This is one of my most anticipated releases for 2020, and I’m so excited to have an ARC. Thank you Avon and Edelweiss!

The Friendship List cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

Thank you HQN Books and NetGalley 🙂

I did rather well with new additions this week, and I’m looking forward to reading both of these.

The Sunday Post #256 – 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 was the last week of work for me, and I finally got the good news about next year. I’m hired full time at the high school where I’ve been teaching for five years, and this time, my contract won’t be renewable every year. I’m so happy!

The weather has been good, almost too hot for me, which makes it a little hard to sleep well, but during the day, we all appreciate spending time outside a lot.

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!

    The Mallery book looks like the perfect beach read. 🙂 And congrats on the switch to full time without the annual contract renewals! That’s great!

  4. Sophia Rose

    That is fab news about the long-term contract for work. And, yay for getting two books for review that you really wanted. Enjoy your summer and hopefully the heat will not be too bad.

  5. Whoo hoo! Congratulations on being hired full time. What wonderful news! How great that your got a copy of an anticipated release too.

  6. Congratulations! That’s awesome for you , so glad to hear that. Sounds very well deserved. 🙂

    It’s been hot here too, yikes! We had some scorching temps this week lol.

    Be well- love the pics this week!

  7. Congratulations on the permanent contract at work 🎉I hope for that myself, but thankfully I did find out last month that mine has been renewed again. It is funny how as you break up from work, I have just started back at work almost full time. However it will only be for three weeks, as it will then be our summer break too. Take care and happy reading in the coming week. 🙂

  10. Huge congratulations! That is a real vote of confidence in your overall performance, Linda:)). I absolutely love the Ilona Andrews Innkeeper Chronicles, but haven’t read any of this particular series – I hope you enjoy this latest offering. Have a great week.
