Weekend Wrap-up #327 – Fall Back

Posted 24 October, 2020 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 26 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 #326

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 Duke Heist cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upDriven cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

I already read – and loved – The Duke Heist, it’s the first in a new series by Erica Ridley, and it is awesome! I can’t wait to get started on Driven, as I love the Deep Ops series by Rebecca Zanetti 🙂

Love in Numbers cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

One of my favorite authors – Scarlett Cole – finally released a new romance, and so far it’s really good! I love her writing, and her characters always make me want to be in the story 🙂

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.

So this week was vacation for us, but we have mostly stayed home with covid cases raising like crazy here. My oldest son and I aren’t feeling well, so we’re getting tested on Sunday. I have already organized a substitute teacher for my classes on Monday, as I don’t think I’ll have the result by then. I got some preparation work done, and I also graded some essays – which were mostly really good. I was really happy with my students on that.

This week, we turn our clocks back one hour – hopefully for the last time ever.

    Nice new reads! All totally new to me ones I hope you end up enjoying them all! Besides that one you already loved of course! 😉

    Oh no, I hope you just have a regular old cold. I’m still getting over my own cold. Ugh. It’s been dreadful and long. I ended up taking a sick day Tuesday, which I rarely ever do. But this cold was just knocking me out. I stayed in bed all day, mostly dozing in and out. Any rest is best I guess! Hope you feel better soon!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

    • I hope it’s just a common cold, too, but I still want to get tested, as I see a lot of people every day at school – even if I’m wearing a mask. I hope your cold will leave you soon, too. Is there any way you can get tested for Covid? Just to rule it out?
      Feel better, and enjoy your naps.

    Bummer about not feeling good on your school break. Hopefully, it’s nothing too serious for you and your son. Glad you’re enjoying your stack of books. Fun puppies running!

    Wishing you well this week, Linda!

  3. Oh no I hope you test negative, Linda, and your son too. Sending lots of prayers and well wishes your way! And nice pics as always. 🙂

    Hope you have a good week ahead, and wishing you a good time change- it always throws me for a loop!

  4. I am sorry to hear you couldn’t do much in your break and that you and your son have been feeling unwell – I hope the tests come back negative for you both! I have also been stuck in my home, as this was my second week of isolation, after the positive case at my school. However a silver-lining is my cat is a very happy lady to have me at home and all to herself. Take care, rest up and escape into some good books, Linda! ???

  5. Sorry to hear you and your son aren’t feeling well, hopefully the results will come back negative!! I’m currently on a national lockdown as I live in Wales and was in one several weeks prier to this one coming into affect due to my borough having such an increase on the number of positive cases. I’m still working though so at least I’ve got some sort of normality in my life, times are so hard so stay positive and my thoughts are with you and your son with all fingers crossed!!

    Also just wanted to point out, your dogs are just the cutest 🙂 x

    • That’s what we’re hoping too. We might get back to a complete lockdown soon, too. Switzerland is not doing very well trying to flatten the curb these days. I hope you’re able to do some nice things, and read some comforting books while you’re home.

      Thank you – the dogs definitely keep us sane these days 🙂

    Oh no, I’m sorry to see that your son and you aren’t feeling good ! I hope the tests will return negative. Fingers crossed here xx. The dogs look happy out there, the landscape is gorgeous. And yes, I hope we’ll change clocks for the last time… Take care <3

    As always loved the greenery and pup pictures. I hope the test comes out negative and you are feeling better soon!

  8. Cases are going up here too. I live in a rural area and its been odd to see the cases go up here but it was bound to happen. Hopefully you just have a cold! Get better soon!

  9. I hope that you and your family’s tests prove to be negative, Linda. And a real shame that you ended up staying at home during half term. I’m also tucked away due to a cold. Let’s hope we all feel a lot better during the week:)).

  10. Hope it’s just a regular cold, I know it’s that time of the year here. We have had up and down temps which are good breeding ground for colds. I am afraid the rise in Covid positives will be a lot of regular cold with a false positive, though I hope by now they have a better way of testing!

    Love the puppies in action! Enjoy you reads!

    Have a great week and happy reading!

  11. Oh no! Hopfully you didn´t catch the virus! Here in Germany we voted for stopping the change of time but politicians in Brussels are not willing to decide what time we will now get for good. So I fear we will have that game going on for the next years… I keep my fingers crossed that your test is negative. Happy reading, Linda!

    I’m sorry to read you and your son haven’t been feeling well. I’ll keep my fingers crossed the test comes back negative.
    Your new books look great! And that photo.. Sigh.. Ow how I miss those Swiss mountains.
    Stay safe and happy reading.

    Are you guys getting rid of daylight savings? I wish we were on DLS all the time – I like more light in the evenings. Hope you are feeling better and everyone is recovering.
