Weekend Wrap-up #338 – Winter and Work

Posted 30 January, 2021 by Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Memes, Wrap-up Posts / 16 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 #337

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 Heart Remembers cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

LB Dunbar is re-releaseing this novel, and I was lucky enough to get an ARC. So far, I’m really enjoying it!

Wild Child cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

A Long Petal of the Sea cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

I love Isabel Allende, and this week the kindle edition of her book from last year was only $0.99 🙂

Outside the Lines cover - (un)Conventional Bookworms - Weekend Wrap-up

I won this novel in Avery Flynn’s Facebook group.

The Sunday Post #267 – 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.

Another very busy week at work. And frankly, it already feels like the weeks are bleeding together, and we’re already at the end of January. I keep hoping I’ll be able to get the vaccine fairly soon, but that might not be the case. The Swiss authorities may not have enough doses of the vaccine for all the people who want to get it.

It was fairly cold here at the beginning of the week, then it got a bit warmer, and it’s been raining and raining since then. I hope it will clear up so we can get some sun and feel a bit more energized soon.

  1. I feel like January has really flown by. It’s almost February?!? And yes vaccine rollout seems to be problematic in terms of supply.

    I hope you get sunshine!!!

    I’m just glad the month is finally over! For some reason January is always the hardest month to get through for me. Lol. Now it’s just enjoying the weekend before work on Monday and the start of a new month! Just yesterday I signed up to be notified when I can get the vaccine. I know I’m still several months off, but I felt like at least getting my name on the list with 1000s of others couldn’t hurt! I mean, I’d rather wait a little bit to make sure there are no other serious side effects from these vaccines as well. They developed them so quickly, I felt nervous about their safeness. So do my parents. In the meantime I keep up with the standard protocols that have become our norm this decade.

    Nice new reads! These are all new to me ones. Yay for the win too!! Hope you enjoy all the new reads!

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

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Your puppies look happy by that window. I, too, love a window view of the world during these isolated times. I have one by my desk where my laptop lives.

    Enjoy your new books. I love the look of Wild Child

    Good luck on getting the vaccine. The only reason we already have had one shot and have another scheduled for next week: I live in a senior assisted living residence, considered a long term care facility. I guess everything, even that, has an upside.

    Stay safe and thanks for sharing.

    Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

    Yes, January went by fast for me, too. Since you are teaching, I hope you get the chance at a vaccine sooner than later. Looks like the puppies are staying cozy for the cold, wet days. We had sun on Thursday and I had to squint until I got used to the brightness. LOL

    Have a good week, Linda!

  5. The puppies look happy to curl up and snuggle in their blankets. We are feeling that way also. If it’s cold or rainy that feels good. I hope you can get vaccinated soon. Enjoy your new reads!

  6. Linda, I pray you will be able to get the vaccine soon and that Switzerland will be able to give everyone who wants/needs it one. ? My week has been a quiet, cold and snowy one, where I have been enjoying a re-read of the classic, Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott. Take care and happy reading for the coming week. ?

    I love how your pups are so photo ready and know to look into the camera. I wish I was half as photo ready. I hope you are all staying safe!

  8. It’s the time of year when I always feel I need to dig in and keep going. Christmas is a distant memory and the summer is months away… Glad you are getting prioritised as a teacher for the vaccine – as far as I can tell, here in the UK teachers are fairly well down the list, which is all sorts of wrong. The only good thing is how much effort they are putting into rolling out the vaccine – nearly 8 million folks have had the first jab. I hope the coming week is a good one, Linda.

    It’s definitely crazy to me too, that it’s already February. Where did January go?
    The vaccines aren’t going as fast as planned here either. But I keep thinking we might have just put to much hope in the vaccines here right away. People are feeling more down because things haven’t been going as fast as hoped. I sure hope things go faster soon.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

    And now February is already here! I enjoy February b/c it’s my dad, sister and my birthday month. Also, normally, we visit my parents in warm Florida. But with COVID, and my mom won’t be fully vaccinated, we decided not worth it – no to mention we would all have to quarantine. Everyone is bummed about no travel, but I will enjoy resting at home.
