Sunday Post - 219 & Stacking the Shelves - 156

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.

I keep thinking that things are going to slow down, and we'll be back to a normal week with nothing going on, but that's not been the case. Wednesday was our biggest day this week. That morning I took Little Girl up to Daddy's work so I could get a flu shot and so Daddy could show off his little girl. Then we came home so she could take a nap. Then we went to visit with my sister and 5 week old niece. Wednesday night we went to a local fall festival. That was overwhelming. I can see it being much more fun when Little Girl is old enough to really play the games and such. Thursday my sister-in-law and her mother came over to work on some Bible Art Journaling. Then we went to Olive Garden for lunch. And then Saturday we went to a housewarming party for some friends. Happy Halloween tomorrow!

Goodreads description--Sometimes you just have to take flight.

A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.

Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.

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. Sorry your week (two weeks ago) was such a rough one, but kudos on shaking it off and moving on! Thanks for stopping by Laura!

  2. I never got the flu shot until I got pregnant and then I was trying to protect my little one more than myself (and even still). I can't imagine you not finishing the Throne of Glass series, but hey I've DNF'd a series in the middle before though. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Alyssa!

  3. I hope you get a chance to read the series soon. I've really enjoyed each book. Thanks for stopping by Lily!

  4. Yes, I have a feeling that'll be the same for me too. Sometimes freebies (even books that have been really popular) get put on the back-burner for me. Maybe I should write a discussion post about that soon.

  5. Thanks for stopping by Di! Hope you had a Happy Halloween too!
