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 #169

I had some books in the mail on Wednesday. Thank you Fischer for sending me the books.

Review Copy


Sunday Post #126

Monday and Wednesday were uneventful days. On Tuesday I had some review copies in the mail which made my day. Literally. Guess I should really start to film my unboxing in the future. With one review copy came a nice surprise. A huge poster. Guess, someone didn´t realize that I am only a blogger and don´t have a store where I can show it off.

Wednesday started massive weather low to bring lots of rain which caused massive flooding in North Rhine Westphalia and Rhineland Palatinate. Both areas are only a two hours’ drive away from where I am located. Compared to the damaged trees and dirty sidewalks I saw in my hometown, the flooding in the western part is a catastrophe.

Tuesday and Wednesday night I was listening to the audiobook Hideaway and earned myself some audible trophies. I can call myself now a “marathon runner” since Wednesday night early Thursday morning. All in all, now I achieved seven trophies. Don´t ask how long it took to get me there. I also achieved the preschooler status and am on my way (only six hours away from it) to become a “student”.

Thursday morning, after another sleepless night, I went to the bank to get some things done, and no, I don´t do online banking although I could. And got me some fresh fruits, veggies, and other needed stuff. Later, I was busy at home cleaning shelves, writing down some new blog post ideas, and took a nap. The weather mix is exhausting.

Friday morning, it was at around 1 am, I joined the “500 books by Nora” challenge. I intend to read two books by her this year with one already read. Later that morning I had my last dentist appointment. My tooth got finally fixed and I am all smiles now. Well, sort of. The flooding in the western area of Germany has put the nation under shock and I am no exception. To see the horrible pictures, to hear people cry while they look at their damaged houses or the place where they once had stood – breaks my heart.

I spent Saturday at home. Reading. TV turned off. I took care of some blogging stuff and went to bed early. I was fix and done. Unfortunately, I was up early on Sunday Morning. In the early morning hours, I finished The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue and turned to a new book I had received earlier in the week. Let´s hope it will distract me from the growing horror I experienced over the past few days.

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy.

Happy reading



  1. You seem to be doing more reading. I loved the Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. It is strange to see the book covers in your post with (German?) titles but fun.

    1. Yes, the covers in this post show the German titles *smile* I thought I show you all how the German editions look like. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue...

  2. I am so sorry to hear about that flooding! It seems like terrible disasters are happening everywhere lately. Be safe and take care!

    1. You are right. The news are full of flooding news and wildfires (not sure which is worse). It is insane.

  3. The news coming out of Europe (especially Germany) with the flooding is terrible... I'm glad you are okay.

    1. Thank you. It will take years before things are back to normal or the status before the flooding.
