Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 04/26/20

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.

Another week with not much to report. Honestly, I'm okay with that. My family is healthy. We still have jobs to provide for our needs. I miss seeing my friends and family, but we still have much to be thankful for. Husband was able to take off work on Wednesday again. We had storms and rain on Thursday, but we stayed safe. If anything, this pandemic has me trying to see the silver linings, stop complaining, and show gratitude for all things. I'm reading some good books, but man I've been stalking some that I'm beginning to wonder if I'll end up having to wait until release day to get my hands on.

Goodreads description--Raised a tomboy on a central Texas ranch, Emmaleigh Wallache returns from a year’s visit during which her Bostonian aunt introduced her to a life of culture—fulfilling her late mother’s wish. Her is intent on marrying her off to the son of a wealthy meat distributor to guarantee the success of his cattle business. Happy for her time spent in society, Emmaleigh struggles to discover where she truly belongs.

Foreman Brett Haynes, who has waited until Emma turned eighteen so he can reveal his caring feelings, can’t believe the changes a year made. Gone is the spunky girl who raced him through fields or swung from ropes over the swimming hole. He has nothing in common with this sophisticated young woman and despairs she is unreachable. Can he remind her of life’s simpler moments and win over the heart he has always thought of as belonging to him?

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!

    I think at this point most all of us have reached some sort of level of normalcy due to this virus. Not a good normalcy naturally, but we've gotten to a point where we're all managing. Still can't get a few things at the store or anywhere, but hopefully this pandemic has reached its peak and start its downward turn now. That'd be nice!


    Nice new read too! That's a new to me one! I hope you enjoy it!

  3. I think this is just how it is and it's really fine. Even if the govt opens up we aren't going anywhere. I feel badly for those who have no choice to go out and risk themselves in able to pay their bills. I'm also so glad I have great books to read.

    Stay safe and be well!
