Sunday Post - 250 & Stacking the Shelves - 188

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.

Well guys...IT'S A BOY!!! His name will be Asher Mattox which means "Blessed Gift of God". We announced to our families on Saturday in a Gender Reveal/Naming Party. I can't believe it's June already! This year is flying by. Because of the party yesterday I spent the majority of this week cleaning house. But I actually enjoy having a party as an excuse to deep clean my house. Friday we also had a doctor's appointment where we had the anatomy scan for Asher. I love those ultrasounds because they spend so much more time letting you see the baby and showing you what's what. Unfortunately, he was pretty much curled into a ball so even though they got to see what they needed, we didn't get any good pictures. This was a busy blogging week, and despite being super busy, I also managed a decent amount of time to read.

Goodreads description--Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price ...

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

Goodreads description--It's pointless. Hopeless. Even if she weren't afraid of me, we'll always be enemies at the core . . . In the city of Yuan, the blind Princess Isra is raised to be a human sacrifice. Her death will ensure her city's vitality. In the desert, a mutant beast named Gem fights to save his people, known as the Monstrous, from starvation. Neither dreams that, together, they can return balance to their worlds. When Gem is captured for trying to steal Yuan's enchanted roses, he becomes a prisoner of the city. Isra enlists his help, and soon begins to care for him-and to question everything she has been brought up to believe. She's a queen; I'm her prisoner. I am her monster and she is mine.
