Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 03/15/20

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.

My Happy 9th Blogoversary Giveaway is still going on. Be sure to head over to that post to enter for a chance to win a free e-book of your choice up to $10 (USD). Tuesday we went to visit a friend from our church family's house and spent a few hours playing and having fun. I got hit with an allergy attack that day and by that night Little Girl was coughing pretty regularly. By Wednesday, both kids were full on sick. Little Boy was running a fever and coughing. My mom came to visit Thursday because both kids seemed to be much better. I thought we were on the upswing until Friday after lunch Little Boy seemed to be having a relapse and ran fever around dinner time. Friday night was terrible. Little Boy was up every hour from 2 am until time to get up. As beautiful as the weather was Saturday, I didn't think it was wise for us to get out and play. But I know the world is kind of in a meltdown right now. I tend to try to err on the side of caution. The next few weeks should be interesting. Schools have closed at least for the duration of the month. Prayers for you all, wash your hands, stay inside, and read a book!

Goodreads description--With Prince Henrick dead, a foreign army in league with the king, and the palace taken, Reid must find a way to right the wrongs for the people of Marsden.

Reid never expected to find love, friendship, or her mother in the kingdom of Axian. She also never expected to become a leader for her people. With the king threatening to overthrow the dukes and take complete control of the kingdom, Reid realizes she may be the only one in a position to stop him. With the ring her father gave her, the commanders of the army at her side, and a master schemer in league with her, Reid just might be able to pull off the greatest upset in Marsden history—all she has to do in step into the role she was born for.

To protect her kingdom, Reid must outsmart them all. Luckily, she’s spent the last eighteen year learning the art of manipulation, and she isn’t above putting those skills to the test.

Making a Play (The Field Party, # 5)

By: Abbi Glines

Publication: August 20th 2019 by Simon Pulse

320 pages

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Source: Borrowed from the e-Library

Goodreads description--The fifth book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Field Party series—a southern soap opera with football, cute boys, and pick-up trucks—from USA TODAY bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Ryker Lee is finally enjoying his senior year—he has great friends, hangs out with hot girls, and is on track to get a football scholarship that will set him up for college. Despite this, a small part of him wonders if there’s more to life than parties and meaningless hookups—and if football even means as much to him as it does to his fellow teammates. And when he meets the new girl at school, his world totally changes…

Aurora McClay is new to Lawton. She’s grateful that her twin brother, Hunter, is star of the football team and can help her adjust to her new school, but she’s not grateful at how overprotective he is over every person she meets. Just because she is deaf does not mean people have to treat her differently. When she meets Ryker Lee, the two of them spark an instant and intense chemistry, one that proves to be controversial not only because of Ryker’s reputation as a player, but also because of Aurora and Hunter’s father’s bigoted views about who Aurora can and can’t date.

Aurora and Ryker know in their hearts that they are meant for each other. But can their relationship endure the turmoil of rumors and prejudice?

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!

  4. I hope your family gets better and stays healthy. I think you can go outside (in your yard) just not out to public places. I'm glad to stay home as I think it will get much worse before it gets better. The fever and coughing are symptoms of it. It's not serious until it goes into the chest / lungs.

    Have a safe and healthy week and enjoy some new reads!

  5. Hope both your kiddos recover quickly and it doesn't turn out to be anything serious (AKA the virus that shall not be named). I imagine any illness right now is scary!
