Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 4/15/18

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.

The kids are much better. Thanks to everyone who wished them well last week. Husband was off work on Monday and Friday of this past week. That was so nice having him home. It makes a huge difference having an extra set of hands. We went for a walk almost every day which was so nice. Baby Boy still isn't sleeping consistently at night. I've read multiple sleep training books, but I've yet to figure out his problem. He doesn't sleep with a pacifier and he puts himself to sleep on his own. But he still wakes throughout the night. Any advice?

Monday: Review of The Weaver's Daughter by Sarah E Ladd (4 Stars)
Wednesday: Can't Wait for Two Dark Reigns (Three Dark Crowns, # 3) by Kendare Blake

Goodreads description--Heartrending and chilling by turns, The Opposite of Innocent is Sonya Sones’s most gripping novel in verse yet—the story of a girl who finds herself trapped in an abusive relationship with a man twice her age.

Lily has been crushing on Luke, a friend of her parents’, ever since she can remember. He’s been away for two endless years, but he’s finally returning today. Lily was only twelve when he left. But now, at fourteen, she feels transformed. She can’t wait to see how Luke will react when he sees the new her. And when her mother tells her that Luke will be staying with them for a while, in the bedroom right next to hers, her heart nearly stops.

Having Luke back is better than Lily could have ever dreamed. His lingering looks set Lily on fire. Is she just imagining them? But then, when they’re alone, he kisses her. Then he kisses her again. At first, the secrecy and danger of their relationship thrills Lily. But soon Luke begins to expect, then demand much more than kissing. He won’t stop pressuring her to do things she doesn’t want to do. Lily wishes she had never flirted with Luke. She feels imprisoned in a situation that’s all her fault. How will she escape?

In this powerful tale of a terrifying leap into young adulthood, readers will accompany Lily on her harrowing journey from hopelessness to hope.
