Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 10/21/18

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 week has been extremely busy. I've been cleaning house for a very special party we had at our house on Saturday. Little Girl has turned THREE years old. We did a joint party with Baby Boy who will be turning 1 in 9 days. After his birthday, he will be referred to as Little Boy. Hopefully now that this party is behind me I'll be able to get a little more reading done.

My annual "All Things Halloween" event is going on. This is my month-long event where I feature reviews from Halloween-y genres (fantasy, paranormal, supernatural, sci-fi, horror, mystery, thriller, and suspense). Over the last few years I've had mostly fantasy books as I just haven't been in the mood for much horror, but still...these are books that can get you in the mood for Halloween.


Monday: All Things Halloween Review of Harry Potter & the Cursed Child (Harry Potter, # 8) by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne, & John Tiffany (4 Stars)
Wednesday: Can't Wait for The Binding by Bridget Collins


Monday: All Things Halloween Review of Hero at the Fall (Rebel of the Sands, # 3) by Alwyn Hamilton
Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday?
Wednesday: Can't Wait for Wednesday

Goodreads description--How hard would you fight for the one you love? Taryn Landry was there that awful night fourteen years ago when Long Acre changed from the name of a town to the title of a national tragedy. Everyone knows she lost her younger sister. No one knows it was her fault. Since then, psychology professor Taryn has dedicated her life's work to preventing something like that from ever happening again. Falling in love was never part of the plan...

Shaw Miller has spent more than a decade dealing with the fallout of his brother's horrific actions. After losing everything―his chance at Olympic gold, his family, almost his sanity―he's changed his name, his look, and he's finally starting a new life. As long as he keeps a low profile and his identity secret, everything will be okay, right?

When the world and everyone you know defines you by one catastrophic tragedy...
How do you find your happy ending?

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. Happy birthday to your kiddos! That's fun that their birthdays are so close together. We used to do joint parties when I was a kid, too.

  2. Happy birthday to the little ones! Such fun ages.

    I wish I were reading more Halloween-y books. One of the ARCs I just finished counts, I guess -- elemental magic, a necromancer, and a number of ghosts.

    Have a wonderful final 10 days of October!

  3. Happy Birthday to your little ones. I imagine you all had a lot of fun celebrating. And I too have a month long Halloween feature going on. It'll be nice when it's over as that means I'll have written at least 31 reviews this month. LOL

  4. Happy birthday to the kids! I love Halloween, so I’ve been doing a lot of spooky stuff on my blog, too. Have a great week!
