Sunday Post - 220 & Stacking the Shelves - 157

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 was a whirlwind. We had our master bathroom remodeled. Little Girl and I spent Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at my mom's house and Wednesday we hung at my sister's. It was nice to have somewhere to go to so we could stay on our relatively normal schedule, but there's just nothing like being at home. I love our updated bathroom. It's beautiful. So much nicer than we had before. Friday I spent the day cleaning up after the construction crew. They laid plastic and all to protect the floors in the other parts of the house, but dust and debri still manages to get everywhere. I also finished Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, # 3) by Sarah J Maas on Wednesday night. It killed me not to jump right into Queen of Shadows, but I had to put that on hold for a couple of days. Also, Saturday we celebrated my nephew's birthday.

Goodreads description--The queen has returned.

Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she’s at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past…

She has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight.

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return.

The fourth volume in the New York Times bestselling series continues Celaena’s epic journey and builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world.

Goodreads description--Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

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!
