Sunday Post - 166 & Stacking the Shelves - 120

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.

Another full week. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday were spent doing housework and organizing baby room stuff. I did get a quick trim on my hair Tuesday night. Thursday we had some new living room furniture delivered. I'm so excited about that. It almost feels like a different house to me. Friday I had a doctor's appointment (all's well) and then we were off half a day to go bowling with work for a team building exercise (I didn't bowl, but I did watch). Friday night Husband and I both crashed. I took about a 2 hour nap as soon as I got home. Husband proceeded to play video games all night and when I woke up I read an entire book. Saturday we drove to Birmingham to visit with a cousin and his wife and two kids that flew in from Colorado. It was so good to visit and catch up. And today we're having our last baby shower. I'm so excited to finally get baby laundry done and clothes put away where they need to go. It's another week where I realize how extremely blessed we are.

Goodreads description--To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

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!
