Sunday Post - 69 & Stacking the Shelves - 42

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 past week was pretty good. Halloween was Thursday. I hope everyone had a good and happy Halloween. We walked around our neighborhood to take in the sights with all of the houses decorated and the trick-or-treaters. Our neighborhood has several houses that go all out with decorating, and the ones that don't still participate in handing out candy to the kids. It's a great atmosphere and I love it. Then we came home to hand out candy. I have imposed a reading ban on myself for the weekend. My house was in major need of being cleaned, and I personally just needed a break. I think Husband needed me to take a break too. Hope you all had a great week too.

Goodreads description--Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco had vastly different childhoods. Haven, a second-generation slave, grew up isolated in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, lived a life of privilege, never having to answer for anything he did.

Both now seventeen, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide, making them question everything they ever believed. Entangled in a web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface, they have more in common than anyone would think.
