Sunday Post - 200 & Stacking the Shelves - 142

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 pretty good week. We went swimming with Baby Girl a couple of times, and I just can't tell you guys how much she loves being in the water. Friday night I had a mommy fail and snapped her poor little finger into the tray on her booster seat. It took me a minute to figure out what she was crying about too. Even though she didn't cry for long and seemed to get over it quickly, I still feel awful. I know these moments are going to happen so I'm trying not to dwell on it. Saturday we celebrated my birthday with my husband's family. And then today is Father's Day so we'll be going to lunch with my dad and then hanging with husband's family for dinner. Also, today is my brother's birthday so even though he doesn't read my blog, shot out and happy birthday to him!

Praise for Leaving Paradise
"Elkeles writes convincingly about family tensions, retreating from painful reality, and teens outgrowing their old skins." —School Library Journal

"Elkeles creates raw emotions, dialogue, and high-school ambience that’s just right… [A] delicate, delicious love story."—Booklist
