Sunday Post - 148 & Stacking the Shelves - 106

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

The past week was good. Husband was off work all week. Wednesday, I had an all-day training class, and when I got home Husband had finished the floor in my laundry room. I'm so excited. Friday, we were both off work and had lots of running around to do. First of all, Friday was our 6th Anniversary. I had a doctor's appointment and an ultrasound, so we were able to see Baby. Little one was very active. We were looking to find out the gender, and the ultrasound tech gave us an "I think it's a...", but we go back in two weeks for another ultrasound to verify gender. Later Friday night, we took my nephew to see the new Avengers movie. That was fun. Saturday, I got my hair trimmed and highlighted. Happy Mother's Day!

Goodreads description--Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn't risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.

Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.

That's it for my shelves and recaps of my past and upcoming week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Any bookish news you want to talk about? Let me know!
