Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 1/14/18

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 has been a fast week. Not much going on though. We all seem to be over our colds. I'm so thankful for good health. Little Girl spent some time at Grammy's house on Wednesday playing with one of her big toys that she got for Christmas. That allowed me to finish packing up my Christmas tree. However, I am DYING for a date night with Husband. Truly what I want is an entire meal where we can have an actual conversation without being constantly interrupted. And then I'd love to have a few hours kid-free to clean my house. I am really considering that if we end up having a third child one day that I'd like to hire a cleaning service for the first three months because there is just NO TIME to get the basic house cleaning stuff done. We had lovely weather this week, but we're back to cold temps this weekend and this coming week.

THIS PAST WEEK:

Monday: Review of A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole (4.5 Stars)
Tuesday: Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2017
Wednesday: Can't Wait for 99 Lies (100 Hours, # 2) by Rachel Vincent

Goodreads description--Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

Amazon description--Strong-minded and independent Julia Bernay comes to London to study medicine and become a doctor--a profession that has only just opened up to women. She witnesses a serious accident, and through her quick actions saves the life of an ambitious young barrister named Michael Stephenson.

Coming from a family that long ago lost its money and its respectability, Michael Stephenson has achieved what many would have thought was impossible. Hard work and an aptitude for the law have enabled him to rise above his family's stigma and set him on the path to wealth and recognition. But his well-laid plans are upended when the accident brings Julia into his life.

Michael soon discovers he's met a woman every bit as stubborn and determined to make her mark on the world as he is. Sparks fly--but will they find common ground?
