Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 07/07/19

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 through Wednesday were normal days this week. The kids and I just played outside. We walked when we could. I was so excited that this was a short week for Husband's work. He had off Thursday and Friday for the 4th of July (Independence Day for the US). We spent both days at his mom's visiting with his family, swimming, and eating good food. The kids had so much fun and they were exhausted every night. Thursday night we shot fireworks. They're not illegal in our area, and pretty much our entire neighborhood shoots them. We really have no need to go see some show with tons of other people because the view from our yard is great. We actually shoot them for a personal reason. Husband's father passed away on the 4th 4 years ago while the fireworks were going off. So we shoot fireworks and drink Sprite (his favorite drink) in his honor every year. The kids love seeing the fireworks, and Little Boy wasn't scared of them at all. Husband's coming down with a cold. I feel so bad for him.

Goodreads description--From the outside, Everest has it all, but there’s only one girl who can see him for who he truly is...and it changes his life forever.

Everest is the most popular guy in school. As the handsome and wealthy captain of the football team, he has the world at his fingertips, but he’s desperately unhappy. Unconvinced that he should live, he tries to take his life. On the surface, Beverly’s different from Everest in every way. Quiet, shy, and hard working, she keeps to herself, focusing on her schoolwork and part-time job to distract herself from her less-than-perfect home life.

When Everest returns to school, in more pain than ever, he’s discarded by his friends and girlfriend, and draws little empathy and too much attention from those who surround him. But when Beverly and Everest meet unexpectedly in a dusty corner of the library, together they discover how just how rich life can be.

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’m glad you had a wonderful holiday. My youngest has a bad cold, it’s a bit scary with the whole killer flu thing, I hope your hubby feels better soon

    Have a great reading week

  2. That's a wonderful reason to do the fireworks. It's always good to honor those we've lost. Also, hopefully your husband feels better. This time of year is AWFUL to have any sort of sickness but especially cold/flus that raise our temps and give us that general stuffiness/soar throat that is nearly impossible to shake.

    On another note: Saving Everest sounds really good. I hope you enjoy it and your week ahead!
