Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 02/03/19

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 good week--mostly normal. Husband was off work on Tuesday. He'd scheduled it in advance, but that was also the day the polar vortex start causing issues. They predicted snow for us but we never got any. It was 60 degrees the day before so even if we had snow it wouldn't have stayed around. Little Boy started randomly running a fever Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday. He is cutting 4 teeth right now and 3 of those 4 just broke the skin. *Shrugs* He's pretty much fine now. My mom's birthday was on Thursday and we celebrated by going out to eat Friday night with her and my dad and my brother's family. My parents also took the kids home with them from dinner, and we're getting them today after church. Husband and I ran by Lowes after dinner Friday night to look at flooring. We're hoping to replace the carpet in our dining room (whoever thought that was a good idea when they built this house was delusional...or never had kids). Saturday it was hard to decide between an entire day of reading or getting things done. Ultimately, I opted for getting things done. I knew that's the one I'd regret if I passed it up. When the kids are back and I'm looking around the house at all of the things I need to do but would rather spend one on one time with the kids I figured I needed to take advantage and get them done while I had the chance.

Goodreads description--From the #1 New York Times, USA TODAY and internationally bestselling author of the fantastical Dark Elements and the Lux series comes a new novel set in a world of gargoyle protectors, rising demons and one girl with an explosive secret.

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.

When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed…

( Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository )

Goodreads description--Readers rabid for the sweet historical romances of Tracie Peterson and Tamara Alexander will flock to Kim Vogel Sawyer's prairie-set heartwarmer of a pair of opposites destined for love.

Estelle Brantley grew up in affluence and knows exactly how to behave in high society. But when she is cast from the social registers due to her father's illegal dealings, she finds herself forced into a role she never imagined: tutoring rough Kansas ranchers in the subjects of manners and morals so they can "marry up" with their mail-order brides. Mack Cleveland, whose father was swindled by a mail-order bride, wants no part of the scheme to bring Eastern women to Spiveyville, Kansas, and he's put off by the snooty airs and fastidious behavior of the "little city gal" in their midst. But as time goes by, his heart goes out to the teacher who tries so diligently to smooth the rough edges from the down-to-earth men. How can he teach her that perfection won't bring happiness?

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. You had a busy but good week. Sometimes you just have to do things. But I try to listen to audiobooks while I do them or run errands, but I don't have young children. I have a photo where my daughter at about age 3 is on my lap asleep and I'm reading a big old paperback - a Tom Clancy one. I hope this week is wonderful and you fit in a bit of reading.
