Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 11/24/19

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.

Finally a normal week! I really can't even remember if there was anything worth reporting from the early part of the week. The kiddos had yearly checkups on Thursday. Everything went great! They're healthy and right where they should be. They were so well behaved during the visit that we got Happy Meals on the way home. Thankfully the weather has been nice enough for us to walk every day. Man that was needed after the previous week of rain and really cold temperatures. I finished two books this week, and I have to say that I'm excited to check out the Stephanie Plum book that I got this week. It's kind of become a tradition (if you can count this being the 2nd time a tradition) to listen to a Stephanie Plum book while I'm decorating the Christmas tree. I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Goodreads description--Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semi-professional loon, Simon Diggery, won’t let her take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Stephanie’s main qualification for babysitting an extremely large snake is that she owns a stun gun—whether that’s for use on the wandering serpent or the petrified neighbors remains to be seen.

Events take a dark turn when headless bodies start appearing across town. At first, it’s just corpses from a funeral home and the morgue that have had the heads removed. But when a homeless man is murdered and dumped behind a church Stephanie knows that she’s the only one with a prayer of catching this killer.

If all that’s not enough, Diesel’s back in town. The 6-foot-tall, blonde-haired hunk is a man who accepts no limits—that includes locked doors, closed windows and underwear. Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli isn’t pleased at this unexpected arrival nor is Ranger, the high-powered security consultant who has his own plans for Stephanie.

As usual Jersey’s favorite bounty hunter is stuck in the middle with more questions than answers. What’s the deal with Grandma Mazur’s latest online paramour? Who is behind the startling epidemic of mutilated corpses? And is the enigmatic Diesel’s sudden appearance a coincidence or the cause of recent deadly events?

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!

  3. Well I hope you enjoy Stephanie Plum; I'm done with her. It is just too ridiculous. It is so nice to have a normal week. Have a very lovely Thanksgiving! It won't be a normal week at all, but hopefully you can take advantage of the holiday time to relax and read a bit!
