Weekend Wrap-up #333 – The Last Week of 2020

Posted 27 December, 2020 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 38 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 #332

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 Soulmate Equation - (un)conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upBefore I Saw You cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

Thank you Gallery Books and Edelweiss!

Heaven and Hell cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-upWe Hunt the Flame cover - (un)conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrapup

Thank you Brandee, for the Christmas presents! These have both been on my wishlist for quite a while 🙂

The Sunday Post #262 – 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.

We had a very nice, peaceful and quiet Christmas celebration here at home. My oldest came back from Germany for the Holidays, and it was nice to be all six people and the two dogs. My youngest said it’s the best Christmas she’s ever had, and that just made my mom heart so very happy.

As the year 2020 is (finally!) winding down, I’m hoping that 2021 will be a much better year for all of us. Hopefully, we’ll get vaccinated, so that life can become somewhat more normal again. I miss my family in Norway so much – because the only way for me to go and visit them is to quarantine for ten days upon arrival – and that would be my whole vacation. With a vaccine, I think this could be avoided.

    The Soulmate Equation seems lovely! Yea you got some books! Luckily so did I! We don’t get out much here at all at the moment. The whole town is stacked with holiday makers who are not allowed on the beaches, so they are crowding in the shops and the mall. Terrible.

    But now I have more time for reading and plan on not doing very much more this coming week.

    Have a good week and happy new year!

    • I know, I can’t wait to read it! We don’t get out at all, actually. It just feels so much safer staying at home these days. Shops are closed here at the moment, so it’s truly empty everywhere. Reading, watching movies and just hanging out is just what we need these days.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Oh yes, we will finally see the end of 2021 and be glad to ! I’m sorry about your not being able to travel to Norway, I hope at least you can Skype ? I haven’t seen my sister in 10 months but she’s allergic to internet, lol, so we just phone. The puppies look very, very relaxed. Have a great end of the year, Linda, and we’ll hopefully move on to more normalcy 🙂

    • Finally, yes. It’s been such a weird, long year. I usually Facetime with my mom a couple of times per week, which is better than just phonecalls for sure. But it’s been well over a year since I last saw my mom and my sister, and I miss them. Have a good last week of 2020, and I wish you and your family all the best for 2021!

    I am glad you had a great holiday week and got to enjoy the calm! We have the vaccine available but we heard as of now the vaccine would not cancel off the quarantine nor testing. So we might have to put our visit to India a bit more.

  4. agreatreviewer

    Yeah, let’s hope the vaccine doesn’t take too long to come in 2021. I would love for things to go back to normal. I’m dying to take a vacation somewhere. Hopefully a bookish one to to see authors and my bookish friends again! There are some friends I usually see at the same signings, so we haven’t really seen each other since 2019! I can’t remember if they were at the early signings I got to attend in 2020. I think I had at least one signing a month through January-March. So at least this year wasn’t a total wash! Glad to hear you had a nice Christmas though! We’re aiming for Tuesday and I’m hoping ti happens because I love watching my family open the gifts I sometimes have to painstakingly seek out!

    Nice new reads! Those are pretty much all new to me ones. I hope you enjoy them all!

    Thank for visiting my StS!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

    • Yeah, even if the vaccine won’t completely get rid of the pandemic problem, I think it will make things a bit better. I haven’t been to a book signing since August 2019, and I miss it so much! I hope we’ll get to go to some bookish fun places next year, Jessica! I hope you’ll be able to do Christmas on Tuesday 🙂 Have a wonderful week!

  5. What a wonderful family Christmas you had! Enjoy the upcoming week.

    I love your tree and how it is set next to the bookshelves…and the puppies are enjoying it, too.

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  6. Quiet is exactly what I think we all needed. No rushing around and it was so relaxing. I am looking forward to the crazy next year. 🙂 I do miss it but after this year it was just nice.

    I hope you have the best week ever! Happy New Year! <3

  7. Sophia Rose

    We had a cozy, quiet Christmas, too. Glad your whole family could be together and the puppies look like they loved it, too.

    Happy New Year’s Linda!

  8. So wonderful to spend holidays with family. I like the cosy puppies too. You got some great books! I’ve been enjoying reading what I want in December, more than normal, including library books and books I own, as well as ARCs that are farther out but I just wanted to read them now.

    Anne – Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

    • It was awesome, Anne 🙂 I did get some good books, and I have started reading them, too 🙂 It’s nice to read with no pressure sometimes, don’t you think? I’ve been re-reading a lot of Kristen Ashley books lately, because I needed the comfort those books give me 🙂

  9. Thank you, Linda – Mine was a very quiet and restful Christmas, as I’m afraid I tested positive for Covid, but thankfully I was not poorly enough to not enjoy a hearty Christmas dinner, my presents and FaceTime calls with my loved ones. I am very pleased to hear you also enjoyed a peaceful and quiet Christmas with your family. ??❤ I am definitely already for 2021 where vaccines offer us some of hope of things getting easier. Take care this last week and I pray you have a joyous and hopeful New Year! ?

  10. Maureen Bakker

    I’m glad to read you had a nice Christmas. And I love how your daughter loved this Christmas so much!
    I can’t even imagine not being able to see my family for so long.. So I hope you’ll be able to get the vaccine soon, and you can travel again. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.
    Stay safe and happy reading!

  11. I’m glad you had a nice Christmas! And I hope the vaccines do allow us to return to some kind of normalcy. Let’s hope!

    Love your pics- the dogs look very happy. 🙂

    Have a happy New Year!!!

  12. Jen

    Happy Christmas, Linda! I’m so glad it was a good one. I have to agree, we had a wonderful time; I think the reduced pressure of not having travel and such helped so much. We laughed, ate, played games… wonderful time.

    • I agree with that – traveling at Christmas is very stressful, and so is having a lot of family staying for several days. So in that way, it was definitely nice to not be able to do that. And we had a really nice time, which was great. I’m happy it was the same for your family! <3

  13. A quieter, less-busy Christmas was nice this year. Of course I dislike the reason for it and I missed my family but I appreciated the low-key holiday. I hope you’re able to visit your family soon.

    Happy New Year! Enjoy your week!

  14. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    I share your hopes for the coming year regarding vaccines and wanting to see family again! I haven’t seen my mum in over a year and my husband hasn’t seen his in over 18 months now… I’m glad you had a good Christmas though and I wish you a happy new year!

    I’m glad you had your whole family there for Christmas. Really quiet Christmas here with nothing really special going on. I love the pictures of your dogs. They look very comfy. I didn’t know there was a new Christina Lauren arc. I’ll have to go look. Enjoy New Years!

  16. Olivia-Savannah

    I am glad you had a good Christmas and all of the family members could make it. And I hope good things for the next year as well. I am going to try and be optimistic! Yay for another Christina Lauren book and I have heard good things about We Hunt the Flame. Happy reading x
