Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 4/8/18

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.

Monday I ended up taking the kids to the doctor because they just weren't getting better. Well it turns out that they both had RSV. Needless to say...this week has been exhausting. Little Girl is mostly well. She just has a cough and runny nose occasionally. She sleeps well despite her cough. Baby Boy on the other hand. Well he wasn't the absolute best sleeper before and so now he was having a really hard time sleeping. Husband and I (mostly I) ended up sleeping with him in the recliner most of the entire week. Thankfully Friday I had a chiropractor appointment which felt glorious. Little Girl spent the weekend with my parents and they had tickets to go to the zoo on Saturday.

Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria, they’re delighted to discover a traveling troupe of circus performers, fortune tellers, and a certain charismatic young escape artist entertaining the first-class passengers nightly.

But then, privileged young women begin to go missing without explanation, and a series of brutal slayings shocks the entire ship. The strange and disturbing influence of the Moonlight Carnival pervades the decks as the murders grow ever more freakish, with nowhere to escape except the unforgiving sea.
