Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 04/21/19

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.


Happy Easter everyone. Husband was off work on Monday. We had some sand delivered to the house for a sandbox we're setting up for the kids. We also plan to fill in a puddle in our driveway and fill in various other holes and such around the property. Tuesday I had to run by the store to get some things for an Easter party at Little Girl's school on Thursday and a few things for a beach trip on Friday. Wednesday we just hung out like normal. Thursday was Little Girl's Easter party. It was the first day she's been excited about school in a few weeks. Friday Little Boy spent the day with Grammy while Little Girl and I went to the beach with Aunt Holly and Little Girl's cousins. Husband didn't want to miss Little Boy's first day at the beach and as he's still a bit wily! We'd like him to be a little older and better at listening and obeying instructions before taking him to the beach. It was so windy that the sand was pelting us pretty hard, and the temperature was only 60ish degrees. Despite that Little Girl was so happy to be there. Saturday we dyed Easter eggs with Grammy.

Goodreads description--From ​the New York Times bestselling author comes a breathtaking fantasy of a cursed kingdom, warring clans, and unexpected salvation.

Bayr of Saylok, bastard son of a powerful and jealous chieftain, is haunted by the curse once leveled by his dying mother. Bartered, abandoned, and rarely loved, she plagued the land with her words: From this day forward, there will be no daughters in Saylok.

Raised among the Keepers at Temple Hill, Bayr is gifted with inhuman strength. But he’s also blessed with an all-too-human heart that beats with one purpose: to protect Alba, the first girl child born in nearly two decades and the salvation for a country at risk.

Now the fate of Saylok lies with Alba and Bayr, whose bond grows deeper with every whisper of coming chaos. Charged with battling the enemies of their people, both within and without, Bayr is fueled further by the love of a girl who has defied the scourge of Saylok.

What Bayr and Alba don’t know is that they each threaten the king, a greedy man who built his throne on lies, murder, and betrayal. There is only one way to defend their land from the corruption that has overtaken it. By breaking the curse, they could defeat the king…but they could also destroy themselves.

Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, # 6)

By: Sarah J Maas

Publication: September 5th 2017 by Bloomsbury U.S.A. Children's Books

672 pages

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Source: Borrowed from the e-Library

( Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository )

Goodreads description--In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.
