Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 8/19/18

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.

Second week of "school" for Little Girl. She's still loving it. Her cold is mostly gone now, thankfully. Although Baby Boy's seems to be getting worse. Little Girl has been waking up almost nightly with bad dreams though. Bless her. I finished two books this week. One was great and I can't wait for my review of it to post--although I'm scheduled all the way out until November right now so it'll be a while. The other was so weird and uncomfortable. I did finish it, but man I wish I could get that reading time back and put it towards a different book. Friday, my friend, Paula, came to visit. She's changing jobs this week so we wanted to catch up before she gets into a new routine with the new job. Saturday, my mom, dad, Nanny, and 2nd cousin came to visit for a few hours, and then Baby Boy and I went to a baby shower for my friend Lacy. That was fun, and I'm so excited to meet her baby in a few months.

Goodreads description--Wyoming Territory, 1876

As the only doctor in the frontier town of Savage Wells, Gideon MacNamara knows his prospects for a bride are limited. The womenfolk in town are either too young, too old, or already spoken for. So, being a practical man, he decides to take advantage of the matchmaking service of the day—mail-order brides—and sends away for a woman with nursing experience.

When Miriam steps off the stagecoach in Savage Wells, she sees a bright future in front of her. But when the town—and Gideon—meets her, ready for a wedding, her excitement quickly turns to horror. Somehow Dr. MacNamara's message had gotten turned around. He didn’t want a nurse, he wanted a wife. When she refuses to marry him, she finds herself stranded in Savage Wells with some very unhappy townspeople.

But Gideon is not like the other men Miriam has met. Embarrassed by the misunderstanding, he offers her a job, and the two begin an awkward—and often humorous—dance of getting to know each other as they work to care for the people of their town. Romance blossoms between the two, but when a former medical associate of Miriam’s arrives in town, Gideon and the other townsfolk must rally around Miriam to protect her from a dangerous fate. Gideon and Miriam must decide if they are willing to risk their hearts for each other even as buried secrets are brought to light.

Goodreads description--Once, a witch made a pact with a devil. The legend says they loved each other, but can the story be trusted at all? Find out in this lush, atmospheric fantasy novel that entwines love, lies, and sacrifice.

Long ago, a village made a bargain with the devil: to ensure their prosperity, when the Slaughter Moon rises, the village must sacrifice a young man into the depths of the Devil’s Forest.

Only this year, the Slaughter Moon has risen early.

Bound by duty, secrets, and the love they share for one another, Mairwen, a spirited witch; Rhun, the expected saint; and Arthur, a restless outcast, will each have a role to play as the devil demands a body to fill the bargain. But the devil these friends find is not the one they expect, and the lies they uncover will turn their town—and their hearts—inside out.

  4. HAHA! That's because we usually are busy. :) But I don't always mind. I mean I don't want something going on every day or every weekend, but a couple of days a week keeps my weeks from dragging by. :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting AJ!
