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 #185

No new books this week.

Sunday Post #142

After the long weekend, we had All Saints Day on Monday. A quiet day. On Tuesday I went into town to get all the bank stuff done, and some information at the local stationery store. Later that day I wrote some blog content, finished my research for a new article, and started writing it.

Wednesday was another quiet day. And I feel a bit out of the loop. I did my last editing on a new Waiting On Wednesday post about a Jay Kristoff book (Empire of the Vampire) before I published it. Later in the afternoon, I applied for two new giveaways. One over at Penguin Germany and the other over at Lovelybooks, a reading forum like Goodreads. And I received the news that I will be participating in a reading round I had applied for a few days ago at Lovelybooks. Looking forward to it.

Thursday, I went again to the local supermarket for some fresh cucumbers and Hokkaido pumpkins. For about three weeks I am not able to get every item, I want at the supermarket. The result of the container problems around the world and the so disrupted logistical chain is now showing its results in the area here too. What Brexit does to the UK, the backlash of the Pandemic is doing to the rest of the world. And I am wondering how long this will be going on before the logistical chain is back to normal. And the prices hopefully, too.

Friday was another slow and easy day. And Saturday was THE day of the week. In the evening the TV station ZDF was airing, after a ten-year break, “Wetten, dass …?” (In English you could say “Bet That”) with Thomas Gottschalk, and I was sitting in front of my TV like glued to it. And while watching the appearance of one-half of the Swedish group ABBA, I noticed that my Aperol spritz glass was showing this upside down. On the left Benny Andersson, on the right Björn Ulvaeus.

On TV I saw them like this. The picture below shows Björn Ulvaeus (left) and Benny Andersson (right). They were only there to support one bet and to promote their new album (after forty years).

And in the picture below, you can see the ABBA museum they are building in London at the moment (top of picture) and the Avatar they use to create the permanent ABBA show.

Today, I slept long. I am still having trouble with the time change and the clouded weather outside isn´t making it easier. It seems as if it never gets bright during the day.

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy.

Happy reading



  1. I'm not excited about the time change. I think a quiet week is a good week and hope it happens soon for me. lol

    Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

    1. Usually, I am in for a quiet week, too. But this year is the lack of energy I feel as a result of it, a huge problem.

  2. ABBA! I love their music.

    I wasn't familiar with Hokkaido pumpkins so I had to look them up (wasn't sure if they were just pumpkins sourced from there or somethig else). I hear you on the supply issues.

    Hope you are well this week.

    1. Next time, I show you a picture in my post *lol* You just made my day, with your comment, Greg. Thank you!

    2. Oh, I'm glad. Hope you are well!!!!!!! :)

  3. The time change does make it harder to get up in the mornings! So I get that! The supply issues are crazy. The price hikes are not fun. I like your comparison of Brexit to the pandemic challenges! Interesting! Hope you have a better week!
