Sunday Post - 240 & Stacking the Shelves - 181

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.

You guys...the book slump is officially here. I have not been in the mood to read much at all. I'm read about a chapter every other day or so in this devotional, but the chapters are so short that even doing that isn't making significant progress. Little Girl and I had some errands to run this week, but nothing too fun. The weather has been nice so we've been walking every day. My sister-in-law and family came to visit from Georgia to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday this weekend.

Monday: Review of Lies We Believe About God by William Paul Young (1 Star)
Tuesday: Top Ten Books/Authors I've Read in 24 Hours

Goodreads description--The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.

They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.

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!
