Monday my sister-in-law and one niece and two nephews came over to swim. It wasn't necessarily the best day for swimming as it did rain off and on while we were in the pool. Thankfully there was no thunder or lightening so we kept at it. The rest of the week was pretty lazy. After my crazy cleaning frenzy for our party last Saturday I took it easy this week.

Goodreads description--The third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Field Party series—a southern soap opera with football, cute boys, and pick-up trucks—from USA TODAY bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Two years ago, Riley Young fled from Lawton, Alabama. After accusing the oldest Lawton son, Rhett, of rape, everyone called her a liar and she had no option but to leave. Now she’s back, but she’s not at Lawton High finishing up her senior year. She’s at home raising the little girl that no one believed was Rhett’s.

Rhett is off at college living the life he was afraid he’d lose with Riley’s accusation, so Riley agrees to move back to Lawton so she and her parents could take care of her grandmother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. But the town still hasn’t forgotten their hate for her, and she hasn’t forgotten the way they turned on her when she needed them most.

When town golden boy Brady Higgens finds Riley and her daughter, Bryony, stranded on the side of the road in a storm, he pulls over and gives them a ride. Not because he cares about Riley, of course, but because of the kid.

But after the simple car ride, he begins to question everything he thought he knew. Could Brady believe Riley and risk losing everything?

Goodreads description--Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

  1. You had a great reading week. That's a lot of pages read! And time for swimming too. Excellent.

  2. Sounds like a good and restful week. And I do love the covers of the Maas series. One of these days, I'll actually read them!

  3. Awww...sorry to hear about it raining while you were all at the pool, but at least you all still had fun!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

  4. I love swimming in the rain :) It's still too cold here in Nova Scotia but hoping the pool will be ready soon. A Court of Mist and Fury looks excellent! I've never read anything by Sarah Maas, but it looks like something I would enjoy.

    I was late doing my Sunday post and can't seem to get the linky working but if you'd like to check out mine, here it is:Inspiration Pie

  5. Man, I did SO good not buying any books last week, I even posted about it in my Sunday Post! And then I went and bought like 15 books today at a used bookstore. But I brought books in and got $80 in store credit, so it works out. I had A Court of Mist and Fury in my hands and put it down. Wishing I hadn't though.

    Hope you have a great week!

  6. Haha...thanks! It really isn't often that I have as much time to read as I'd like. Hope you have a great week!

  7. I highly recommend her if you get a chance jump on it! Thanks for stopping by Lark!

  8. I've rated multiple of her books over the two series as 5 Star reads. And I truly don't hand out my 5 Star ratings easily. I hope you get a chance to read her sometime. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Jo-Ann!

  9. Oh wow! 15 books! I don't think I've ever bought 15 books at one time, but used book stores can have such good deals. Oh no! I hate that you put ACoMaF back. It turned out to be my favorite of the series. And it never happens that book 2 out of a trilogy is my favorite. Thanks for stopping by Danie!
