Sunday Post - 262 & Stacking the Shelves - 198

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.

Finally a week with not so much going on. Tuesday was normal grocery day. Thursday I got on the cleaning bandwagon for the week and did a few chores that I've been putting off. We did get to walk on Thursday so that was nice. And I filled Little Girl's little pool for her to play in. She's so funny because she would rather stand outside the pool and scoop the water out than get in this week for some reason. Saturday we celebrated my sister's birthday by going out to lunch as a family. Then some came over to swim after. The pressure is starting to hit for all that we have left to do and buy before Baby Boy arrives. Most everything isn't crucial in that we can survive without buying those things or getting those chores done, but that doesn't mean I want them done/bought any less. Sigh. God's taken care of us and blessed us this far. I know He'll carry us through.

Goodreads description--Ten years ago, a horrifying disease began spreading across the West Texas desert. Infected people—shakes—attacked the living and created havoc and destruction. No one has ever survived the infection. Daisy Wilcox, known as Willie, has been protecting her siblings within the relatively safe walls of Glory, Texas. When Willie’s good-for-nothing father steals a fortune from one of the most dangerous shake-hunters in town, she finds herself on the hook for his debt. With two hunters, including the gruff and handsome Ben, to accompany her, she sets out across the desert in search of her father. But the desert is not kind to travelers, and not everyone will pass through alive.

Western meets horror for this riveting story about survival, family, and inner strength. Tense, short chapters propel readers from one action-packed scene to the next, while Willie’s distinctive, introspective voice deepens the emotional stakes with every turn of the page. High concept and character-driven, Emma Berquist’s debut will satisfy fans of The Magnificent Seven, Rae Carson’s Walk on Earth a Stranger, and HBO’s Westworld.
