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 #219

No new book.

Sunday Post #176

The last Sunday was filled with blog visiting, commenting, writing some new blog content and later in the evening I went into the garden to water the plants.

On Monday I started preparing myself for the upcoming heatwave and made sure that I had enough carbon dioxide cartridge in the house for my SodaStream and enough cucumbers and salad. The supermarket had some Lavender on sale, so I bought a pot for the garden. It was warm and sunny, but we had a wonderful cooling wind, so the heat was bearable.

That changed the next day, Tuesday. The air was so warm and outside felt like I was walking through a thick and warm cushion of hot air. I took care of my household and went in the evening to the supermarket for some fresh veggies and to enjoy the air condition that place has *lol*

Wednesday the heat got to a new high. It was so steamy and humid that being outside turned you into a living walking shower within seconds. No fun. But compared to what the South of Europe must endure currently, I am glad that I am living where I live. After the sunset I went into the garden and planted some new plants on one side of the garden shed. Good, the air was still warm, but without the sun it is nice to work there.

My fresh planted lavender looks withered, but I am confident that that´ll change. It was supposed to rain during the night to Thursday, but all that came down was a few drops. Nothing major. The fresh lawn has turned in some spots from a lush green into a dry brown plant. Guess, I will have to do that part again.

I tried to continue reading my current read, but I am only making slow progress. Holding a book with over 1000 pages in that heat is stressful. And I am noticing that I rather work in the garden during the evening than reading this heavyweight on the warm balcony. And another sleepless night was in order. So, in the early morning hours of Saturday, I got my weekend food and drinks.

Today, Sunday, I did not much. In the evening, after the sunset, I watered the plants and ripped the stupid grass bushes out, that have started to grow on the new lawn. It looks terrible.

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy.

Happy reading



  1. It's a struggle right now with the heat and not much rain for the plants to have enough water. I'm doing some watering. The tomatoes and basil like the heat though. I need to mow the lawn again but it's just hot for now. It's pretty normal for July and August here though. I just stay inside more until September.

    1. My rosemary is doing pretty well in the herbs spot. I mainly water the fresh planted plants. The others only every second or third day. And the lawn... *sigh*

  2. The humidity is the worst. I hope your lavender does well though.

    Hope you have a great start to the week also. :)
