Sunday Post - 254 & Stacking the Shelves - 192

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 this week has been so crazy hectic. Last Sunday our contractor called and asked if we were ready for them to start remodeling our bathroom on Monday. They'd originally given us this week as the goal start date but since we'd not heard from them we thought it would be next week. We literally got home from Husband's work trip the day before. But we said "sure" and start they did. Little Girl and I spent the days at my parents' house about 30-45 minutes away. But there was SOMETHING every single day. My sister had car trouble Monday morning on her way to work so I ran by her house to pick her up and drop her daughter off at daycare before I headed to my mom's. Tuesday I had to run by Kirkland's to purchase two mirrors for the bathroom. Wednesday I took Little Girl up to Husband's work to show her off. Thursday was the only day we didn't have something extra. And Friday we had a doctor's appointment and went to dinner with my parents and Nanny. They didn't quite finish up the bathroom so they'll be back at it tomorrow, but Husband is off work. We'll be spending the 3rd and 4th at his mother's. Then we're off on vacation for a couple of days after that. OH MY! My head is spinning.

Goodreads description--Blue Echohawk doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know her real name or when she was born. Abandoned at two and raised by a drifter, she didn't attend school until she was ten years old. At nineteen, when most kids her age are attending college or moving on with life, she is just a senior in high school. With no mother, no father, no faith, and no future, Blue Echohawk is a difficult student, to say the least. Tough, hard and overtly sexy, she is the complete opposite of the young British teacher who decides he is up for the challenge, and takes the troublemaker under his wing.

This is the story of a nobody who becomes somebody. It is the story of an unlikely friendship, where hope fosters healing and redemption becomes love. But falling in love can be hard when you don't know who you are. Falling in love with someone who knows exactly who they are and exactly why they can't love you back might be impossible.

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!
