Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 04/12/20

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.

Monday and Tuesday were normal days this week. The kids have been getting along so much better the last week or so. They're 4 and 2 so things are hit or miss quite often. They have been attempting to push their boundaries with Husband and I though. Wednesday, Husband left work early, but his car broke down on the way home. I packed up the kids to meet him while he called the tow truck. Apparently the alternator went out on his car, and our mechanic was on top of it. He fixed it and we picked it back up within 3 hours. But all of that put us late getting lunch for the day. But hey, if you have to have a vehicle break down this was the best possible scenario I think. Thursday I was really missing spending time with my mom. I've gotten used to her spending the day with us since she retired, but with an official stay-at-home order and Husband still having to go into the office for work, we figured it would be best to really maintain our distance. Husband's work decided to give them Good Friday off. He doesn't usually get that day so that was really nice. I can't believe it's Easter already. Praise God for Jesus's resurrection! And believe it or not, I have certainly seen God working in this crazy time.

Goodreads description--Lady Elizabeth Davenport is desperate. Her hand in marriage has been offered to the highest bidder, a distressing proposition in and of itself but made all the more repulsive when she meets her father’s first choice for her hand: Lord Pinweather. When her parents refuse to hear her pleas, Liz is forced to take drastic measures—she will impersonate her maid and begin anew in America on her own terms.

Once on board the ship to America, another passenger, Lord Barton, almost immediately discovers her true status as a noble. After listening to Liz’s highly modified version of her life and her plans to begin again, Barton has compassion on her and teaches her how to abandon her noble mannerisms. Upon disembarking, however, Barton’s generous spirit quickly dampens when he discovers Liz has indeed found work—as his own head housekeeper. Suddenly, the tender feelings they hid from each other on the ship are inescapable, but their difference in station makes romance impossible. As misunderstandings abound and a shocking character from Liz’s past looms, she knows she can’t hide her true identity forever. But as her deception begins to unravel, will her charade cost her the man she loves?

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!

    Glad to hear your hubby got off for Friday! That's a treat! I need to take some time off myself since things have just been so crazy. I could use a tiny break despite not being able to go anywhere! Looking forward to the day when things get back to normal!


    Nice new read! Totally new to me one but I hope you will positively love it!

  3. I think I have a flat tire in the garage but since we aren't leaving the house I'm not doing anything about it right now. I did ask my brother if I have a spare and he thinks no but that there might be a compressed air thingee to temporarily inflate it to get to the shop.

    I'm glad you are able to create a new normal routine. It's hard but we've had good weather which helps. Have a healthy, safe week! Happy Easter!

  4. I am glad you were able to get the car issue taken care of. Finding some semblance of normal in all of this is definitely a good thing, and I am glad you have found it. I hope you have a good week. Stay safe and well.

  6. I was really surprised to learn Good Friday isn’t a public holiday in the states. For us it’s a four day weekend as Easter Monday is a public holiday too.
    Glad you were able to get your car repaired so quickly!

    Wishing you a great reading week, good health and a Happy Easter 🐣
