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 #244

No new books.

Sunday Post #201

It is already February, and Valentine's Day is just around the corner. The past two to three weeks my daily routine has been literally the same. And I was to lazy to write every week about the same boring stuff. The past week I finished the bed edging in front of the house, noticed that the neighbor kids don´t like it because they are knocking it down every chance they get and started ripping out the Ivy in the back garden. The soil there is wonderfully dry, finely crumbly and it is almost child's play to rip out the invasive plant. The FFP2 mask that I need for this is less beautiful. But necessary. The spores are not harmless *sigh*

The other side of the garden is quite the opposite. Frozen ground and I see all day long the white frost. I took out all the dead leaves, cut back the ornamental grass and saw that most of the spring flowers are already visible. The Lenten roses, the crocuses, the tulips, the snow drops, some daffodils and some Muscari. It just makes me happy to see that everything is growing despite the still frozen ground. At least one positive thing. The weather is still very cold but sunny and it seems as if we are getting warmer temperatures next week. Not sure about that though.

On Saturday I was up early and walked to the bank for some cash. Yes, I started using real money again to pay for my groceries. It was incredibly crowded at the supermarket. They say, the inflation is going down, but all I see are soaring prices. No matter where I look. Back home, I took a little break, wrote some reviews, and went back into the garden to rip out some more Ivy. The result, today, Sunday, after two straight days ripping out that invasive plant, I feel muscle cramp.

How was your week? Stay safe and healthy

Happy reading



  1. Cold but sunny... same here. That's the kind of weather we've been having the past few days. I think we might (?) get an early spring? Sorry to hear about the neighbor kids...

    Wishing you a great Sunday! :) .

    1. Not sure about the early spring but the sun is great.

  3. Good luck with the ivy! I can't do anything with my garden currently because it's all frozen and under snow.
