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 #201

Sunday Post #158

A sometimes-strange week lies behind me. Monday, I noticed with shock that I had a miscalculation in my bookkeeping for 2022. The annual bill for my blog's domain name is due but not in the month I had it planned. Phew…

Tuesday was another weird day. I missed my medical appointment and later, in the early afternoon, the world turned into an eerie light. Sahara sand was in the air. I still cannot say if it was yellow, fawn, or ocher.

In the night to Wednesday, we had some light rain showers and with that, the Sahara sand got washed out of the air and covered cars, my paper bin, and everything else.

It was another sunny day, but this time, the world looked as if dark, grey clouds had covered the skies.

Thursday morning, I canceled another medical appointment, downloaded some new book covers, edited blog posts, and wrote my review for the book I had read for a reading round. I went to the supermarket for some fresh veggies and to restock some other things and noticed the third day in a row, that the shelves with all the different salad oils, mostly sunflower oil, olive oil, and rapeseed oil, were almost empty. Well, at least the cheaper ones cost around three bucks. If you are willing to pay 11 euros for a bigger bottle of olive oil, you can choose from a wide variety of countries and companies. To be blunt, I don´t need Fort Knox in my salad, so no, I don´t buy the expensive stuff. I asked for the other bottles and got one they were still keeping in the storage.

On Friday I slept a bit longer, put a review online, and tried to find a solution for my canceled medical appointment. Yesterday, Saturday, I again slept long, tried not to think about the garden – we had a gorgeous day, but I had no intention of doing anything in the garden. Instead, I got my food and drinks for the weekend, thought about if and how a new lawn was doable, and started reading a new book.

Today, Sunday, I again slept long, took some cover pictures for my Instagram, and enjoyed an espresso for the first time in weeks. Not sure what the rest of the day will bring, but I hope that I can visit other blogs and leave some comments.

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy.

Happy reading



  1. Thanks for sharing the pictures, interesting to see, maybe not so interesting to experience. I hope you have a great week!

    1. The Sahara sand makes it difficult to breathe while doing sports, so I wear a mask. But to know that it is a natural phenomenon is awesome.

  2. Wow! You sure had a busy week! Hope you had a great week!

  4. That sandstorm looks intense. At least it made the sky a pretty color. :) Have a great week!

    1. I am still trying to figure out what sort of colour it was *smile*

  5. That’s a rather crazy week of weather with sandstorms and rainstorms in the same week
    I hope you enjoy Sunset Beach

    Wishing you a great reading week
