Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookviews and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer.
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:
It was a good week for ARCs, and I’m pretty excited about all of these :
Thank you, St. Martin’s Griffin, Kensington, Ballantine, and NetGalley!
Thank you, Harper Voyager, Avon, Soho Press, and Edelweiss!
When I went to RT in Atlanta in May, I met Ginger Scott, and she was such a great person to chat books with! Little by little, I’m completing my collection with her books, because her stories pack a huge punch!
I met Sarina Bowen at RT, too, and I hadn’t read any of her books. I’m almost up to date with hers, though, and I’ll be seeing her at a book festival in Cannes in three weeks, so I want to have lots to chat about 🙂
Karina Halle is coming to Cannes, too. I still have several of her books to read, but this one is rather new, and it just called out to me while I was browsing books 🙂
The Sunday Post #152 – 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.
I easily survived my first week of teaching, and most of my students are really nice! It has been good to be back in the rhythm, see colleagues, prepare classes and all that. The only thing that’s been difficult is getting up so early in the morning again.
I’ve been suffering a bit due to a double tendinitis of my achilles tendons 🙁 I try to be very careful with what kind of shoes I wear, and when I’m at home, I stay off my feet as much as possible.
I also got my plane tickets to go pick up Hercules the first weekend in October. I’m so excited! Hopefully, Freddy will be happy with another dog joining our family.

If you haven’t checked out Geybie’s Recommend Me posts yet, you should! She asks other bloggers for recommendations for books to read in various genres. And there are plenty to choose from – I discovered some that I hadn’t heard of in each genre she’s covered so far.
Kristen @ Metaphors & Moonlight shares how she sometimes feels like invading privacy through what she’s reading.
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!
