Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 3/18/18

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 good week. Husband was off work on Wednesday. It was nice to have him home. Little Girl certainly enjoyed him being home. Thursday we bought a new car. It was something that kind of fell into our laps and we'd been looking on the side for Husband as his car likely won't last much longer. I took the new car and he's taking my old one. We also got new cell phones this week. I always enjoy getting a new gadget, but there's always an adjustment period where it just isn't what you're used to. Saturday my grandmother was visiting so I took the kids to my mom's. Little Girl was in heaven because an older cousin was there for her to play with. Since she's not in daycare there just aren't a ton of opportunities yet for her to socialize with other kids her age. I finished a book and DNF'd another this week.

Goodreads description--A high-stakes story of star-crossed lovers from Simone Elkeles, the New York Times bestselling author of the Perfect Chemistry series

To escape his abusive stepdad, bad boy Ryan Hess runs from his tiny Texas border town to Mexico. But his plans to keep his head down and stay out of trouble are shattered the minute he meets the beautiful and totally out of his league Dalila Sandoval.

Dalila Sandoval shouldn’t even know someone like Ryan Hess. The daughter of one of the wealthiest lawyers in Mexico, Dalila is focused on studying and planning for her bright future. Ryan is only a distraction from her dreams, but she’s never felt more alive than when she’s by his side.

Ryan and Dalila are wrong for each other in every way. And yet they can’t resist the sparks that fly when they’re together. But their love is like a flame burning too close to the fuse.

Something is going to explode. Will their love be strong enough to survive? Or will it burn them both?

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!


  1. I like when my hubby is home too, but, my girls are older and they don't care if either of us are home. LOL. That will change with time. Glad you had lots of time with your family this week. That is always nice. Congratulations on the new car and phone. Have a good week of reading.
