Sunday Post - 217 & Stacking the Shelves - 155

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.

Oh man you guys! I'm worn out. Monday we had to run to Hobby Lobby. Tuesday was Walmart. Those two days I also spent every nap Baby Girl took working on some DIY decorations. Wednesday I spent each nap working on cooking. My sister, nephew, and niece came to visit for a few hours. And Thursday and Friday were spent house cleaning. All of this was leading up to Baby Girl's first birthday party on Saturday. She doesn't turn one until Thursday of this week, but you know how parties go. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by and how quickly she's growing up. Oh boy, I better stop before I get emotional. Needless to say, I did not have time to read this week. And honestly, I wouldn't even allow myself to pick up a book in fear that I'd get hooked into something awesome and neglect all of the things I needed to do for the party. But now that it is over, I can relax and pick up my reading again.

Goodreads description--"A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.

It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."

From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

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!
