Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 07/28/19

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.

Another week has flown by. I can't believe July is essentially over, and school starts back soon. Monday and Tuesday were pretty normal days here. Wednesday, Grammy got the kids, and I had a self-care day. I took a walk around the neighborhood and then got in the pool to relax. I haven't been swimming by myself in at least 4 years. I did a few laps, but mostly I floated around looking at the sky, clouds, and trees thinking. I had my Tenth Avenue North Pandora station on which was exactly what I needed. I even dozed off in the pool for I have no idea how long. Then I got out to eat some lunch and finished a book before the kids came back home. It was wonderful. And it renewed my spirit. Thursday I took the kids to an indoor playground. It hasn't been in our area long but this was our first visit. Both kids had a blast. Then we stopped at Chickfila for lunch. It was a lot to do by myself but I survived and it's marked down on my list now as something that I know I can do by myself if I need to (or want to). Friday was great too. We went for a walk and then played outside. Saturday was pretty low key. I went to get groceries and then we played outside. The kids have been getting in to swim almost every afternoon with Husband. The water is getting cold already. I'm sure it'll warm back up before the summer is over though.

Goodreads description--Bone ​Criers have a sacred duty. They alone can keep the dead from preying on the living. But their power to ferry the spirits of the dead into goddess Elara’s Night Heavens or Tyrus’s Underworld comes from sacrifice. The gods demand a promise of dedication. And that promise comes at the cost of the Bone Criers’ one true love.

Ailesse has been prepared since birth to become the matriarch of the Bone Criers, a mysterious famille of women who use strengths drawn from animal bones to ferry dead souls. But first she must complete her rite of passage and kill the boy she’s also destined to love.

Bastien’s father was slain by a Bone Crier and he’s been seeking revenge ever since. Yet when he finally captures one, his vengeance will have to wait. Ailesse’s ritual has begun and now their fates are entwined—in life and in death.

Sabine has never had the stomach for the Bone Criers’ work. But when her best friend Ailesse is taken captive, Sabine will do whatever it takes to save her, even if it means defying their traditions—and their matriarch—to break the bond between Ailesse and Bastien. Before they all die.

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!
