With the Weekly Book Wrap-Up, I give you a bit of an insight into all the new books that have arrived at my place. No matter if I won a giveaway, got approved for a reviewer´s copy, an ARC, or just bought one myself. Everything that I add to my shelves, in what way ever and read during the past week or am still reading, I will write about it. And maybe I tell you a bit about the upcoming things on Inkvotary, that is if I don´t forget it and have something to share with you *smile*

I am linking up with Caffeinated Reviewer and Reading Reality and hope you´ll have fun reading it and maybe get the one or the other book inspiration.

Stacking The Shelves #166

No new books.

Sunday Post #123

Another quiet week is over. Well, almost quiet. It was my turn to do the big cleaning around the house so I swept the boardwalk, the basement, and the entrance place. All on Monday afternoon. Tuesday, I treated myself to a lazy day. The rest of the week I was busy with getting all the weeds out of the garden. 

And I realized that I am not happy at all with the turnout of what I had seeded during early spring. Sure, some of the flowers look wonderful but the entire look of the garden is, at least now, not what I had thought it would look like. To me, it seems as if I went from wild to wild again, only this time it was me who decided what to sow and plant where.

Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday I was busy going to the supermarket and noticed too that I still have to go during the early morning hours otherwise I am not getting the fresh fruits and veggies I want. It is crazy. After I got home Saturday morning, I changed my clothes and went into the garden for another weed session. It took me four hours to get my garden corner clean, or almost clean.

Our infection numbers are still going down, so we have to deal with a lot of new rules, and I am at least one hour a day busy reading myself through all the changes and new regularities. We still have to wear a mask when indoors or on a bus or train, though. But the rise of the infections caused by the Indian mutation worries me. Within three weeks it went up from five percent to thirty. I am so glad that my stepmom is now fully vaccinated and that my father will have his second shot a week from now. One less worry if you ask me.

I did a bit of blogging stuff but not as much as I should have. I feel bad about it. Not sure if that will improve again or stay the way it is. Guess, time will tell.

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy.

Happy reading



  1. It's great news that your infection numbers are going down! And I hope that the Indian variant won't change it now that many people a re vaccinated!

  2. You do what you can and do little improvements over time. Gardens don't always go right the first time. We are still being careful even though we are fully vaccinated. Many people are not, even if they aren't vaccinated. Also children under 12 can't get vaccinated and doesn't anybody care if they get really ill? These new strains are much more contagious and just as deadly. I've heard now that some vaccinated get sick but it's mild.

  3. Your flower pics are lovely! Yep, the new covid variant is scary. I'm hoping that vaccinations will slow it down, since they've lifted most restrictions where I live. Have a great week!
