Sunday Post - 208 & Stacking the Shelves - 149

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.

This week flew by! We had Baby Girl's 9 month check up this week. She's doing great. Her weight is up finally! Her doctor wasn't worried about it really, but she was in the bottom 25% for weight when we got her tongue tie revised at 6 months. Now she's in the top 40%. I'm so proud of the progress she's made there. We started finger foods this week. She loves the challenge of picking up little Cheerios and squishing bananas in her fingers, but so far she's not much of a fan of the taste of either. I haven't gotten much reading done as I've been watching the olympics at night. This is the first olympics that I've really watched since 1996 (when I was 10 years old).

Goodreads description--After a harrowing journey across the country, Leah Westfall and her friends have finally arrived in California and are ready to make their fortunes in the Gold Rush. Lee has a special advantage over the other new arrivals in California—she has the ability to sense gold, a secret known only by her handsome best friend Jefferson and her murdering uncle Hiram.

Lee and her friends have the chance to be the most prosperous settlers in California, but Hiram hasn’t given up trying to control Lee and her power. Sabotage and kidnapping are the least of what he’ll do to make sure Lee is his own. His mine is the deepest and darkest in the territory, and there Lee learns the full extent of her magical gift, the worst of her uncle, and the true strength of her friendships. To save everyone, she vows to destroy her uncle and the empire he is building—even at the cost of her own freedom.

The second epic historical fantasy in the Gold Seer trilogy by Rae Carson, the acclaimed author of The Girl of Fire and Thorns.
