Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 05/19/19

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.

Last Sunday was Mother's Day so Husband got me a book from the kids. I've already read it, and a review will be coming soon. We had lunch with Husband's Mom and family and then dinner with my Mom and family. Monday was back to our normal routine and not much was out of the normal until Thursday. I had to run to the grocery store on Thursday while Little Girl was at school because I wouldn't be able to do it on Saturday. I also had to run by the bank and the post office. Adulting, you know? Friday I had a dentist appointment so the kids were at Grammy's until right before nap. I've been struggling to find my next read. I want something contemporary, fast, and fun, but I've got several review books that are past or approaching publication dates. And I've also go several books for pleasure that I've had sitting around for quite some time. But nothing seems to be what I'm in the mood for right now. Do you ever feel like the kind of books you really enjoy reading just aren't published frequently enough? HA! Saturday was a lot. I had to go by the bank and post office AGAIN. Then drop Little Boy off at my Mom's so that I could take Little Girl to a birthday party for one of her classmates. This is the first birthday party she's been to. She had a blast. After that we went back to my Mom's because my Nanny and little cousin was there. And then back home to see how much work Husband got done outside while we were gone.

Goodreads description--In this romantic dramedy from the author of Alex, Approximately, a teen girl’s way-too-ordinary life is driven off the beaten path when she’s abandoned in the wilderness with her worst adversary—the boy who broke her heart.

Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets.

But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together.

What could go wrong?

With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely. And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

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!
