Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 08/04/19

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.

I cannot believe that August is here. I mean school is starting back. It'll be fall in no time. Which means birthdays for my kids and Halloween and Thanksgiving and then Christmas. Oh my! I'm getting ahead of myself. Monday through Wednesday were all normal days. We went for walks. We played outside. Wednesday we spent a good bit of our outside time talking to our next door neighbor. The kids spotted her dog outside and went to the fence to pet her. Thursday I had to run to the grocery store earlier than normal. Instead of taking the kids with me, they went to Grammy's house for a couple of hours. I spent most of Thursday and Friday getting ready for a party we were hosting on Saturday. We had family and friends over to play volleyball Saturday night. We also had open house at Little Girl's school Saturday morning. She got to meet her new teacher and see her new classroom. It's been a much better week mentally even though I still had quite a lot going on. I'm a little behind schedule on my review books, but I can't seem to stop requesting them when I see ones that look good.

Goodreads description--All's faire in love and war for two sworn enemies who indulge in a harmless flirtation in a laugh-out-loud rom-com from debut author Jen DeLuca.

Emily knew there would be strings attached when she relocated to the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland, for the summer to help her sister recover from an accident, but who could anticipate getting roped into volunteering for the local Renaissance Faire alongside her teenaged niece? Or that the irritating and inscrutable schoolteacher in charge of the volunteers would be so annoying that she finds it impossible to stop thinking about him?

The faire is Simon's family legacy and from the start he makes clear he doesn't have time for Emily's lighthearted approach to life, her oddball Shakespeare conspiracy theories, or her endless suggestions for new acts to shake things up. Yet on the faire grounds he becomes a different person, flirting freely with Emily when she's in her revealing wench's costume. But is this attraction real, or just part of the characters they're portraying?

This summer was only ever supposed to be a pit stop on the way to somewhere else for Emily, but soon she can't seem to shake the fantasy of establishing something more with Simon or a permanent home of her own in Willow Creek.

Goodreads description--Camryn has been dating Marc FOREVER—since freshman year! She dropped out of volleyball to go to all his games, switched her schedule around to be in his favorite class, and has been busting her butt to get into Columbia so they can go to the same college. So when Marc suddenly, and very publically, breaks up with her a week into their senior year so that he can date the new transfer student, she’s absolutely devastated.

But why be sad, when you can get even? Inspired by her favorite movies, Camryn decides that the best revenge is a Senior Year well lived, starring a boy who is ever so much better than her ex. With a little help from her friends, Cam is going to have the Best. Senior. Year. Ever.
