Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 2/4/18

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.

Not much happening the first half of this week. Wednesday was my mom's birthday. Thursday I had a dentist appointment so I loaded up the kids to take to my mom's house so Husband could watch them while I was at the dentist. My mom lives 5 minutes from our dentist compared to the 40 minutes away that we live. That was quite the hectic day. Friday, Baby Boy and I had another appointment at the chiropractor. I will say that the days in between his two visits have been the best we've had. I don't know if it is a coincidence, his age, or actually seeing the chiropractor that has made the difference. Whatever it is, I'm thankful. Little Girl spent a few hours at Grammy's house while we were gone. If you're the praying kind, please keep a little girl named Priscilla in your prayers tomorrow as she will be having brain surgery. She's the daughter of a friend of mine. She's 2 years old and such a sweet little girl.

Goodreads description--Love is worth the fight

It’s 1942, and Maisie McCall is in the Scottish Highlands doing her bit for the war effort as a Women’s Timber Corps lumberjill. Maisie relishes her newfound independence and her growing friendships—especially with the enigmatic John Lindsay.

As Maisie and John work side-by-side felling trees, Maisie can’t help but feel like their friendship has the spark of something more to it. And yet every time she gets close to him, John pulls away. It’s not until Maisie rescues John from a terrible logging accident that he begins to open up to her about the truth of his past, and the pain he’s been hiding.

Suddenly everything is more complicated than Maisie expected. And as she helps John untangle his shattered history, she must decide if she’s willing to risk her heart to help heal his. But in a world devastated by war, love might be the only thing left that can begin to heal what’s broken.

Goodreads description--There are two monsters in this story. One of them is me.

Ask anyone in Winship, Maine, and they’ll tell you the summer camp Quinn’s family owns is a magical place. Paper wishes hang from the ceiling. Blueberries grow in the dead of winter. According to local legend, a sea monster even lurks off the coast. Mostly, there’s just a feeling that something extraordinary could happen there.

Like Quinn falling in love with her best friend, Dylan.

After the accident, the magic drained from Quinn’s life. Now Dylan is gone, the camp is a lonely place, and Quinn knows it’s her fault.

But the new boy in town, Alexander, doesn’t see her as the monster she believes herself to be. As Quinn lets herself open up again, she begins to understand the truth about love, loss, and monsters—real and imagined.
