Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 07/12/20

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.

I was so concerned when we started the week because the forecast said to expect rain all week which is super depressing for me. I need to get outside. It helps tremendously with the kids. But as it turns out we were only stuck inside on Tuesday. Every other day we were able to walk and then we even went swimming after getting all hot on our walks. One day this week we happened upon another mom and two kids walking as well. We walked with them for a while (from an appropriate distance...close enough to chat, but far enough away to feel safe). Thursday my mom came to hang out with us. My nephew is graduating from high school today. This will be my first outing into a very public space as I've even avoided the grocery store thus far. Only I'm going due to a limited number of tickets. But I'll be masked up and keeping my distance from other as much as possible.

Goodreads description--As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home seventeen-year-old Fable has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.

But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him and Fable soon finds that West isn't who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they're going to stay alive.

Welcome to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men.

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!

    Yeah for the most part I only do grocery runs on weekends, maybe another store here or there but I always wear a mask. Today is my nephew's first birthday party, so going to bring my mask and do my best to distance myself but also be there for the little guy. Should be interesting.

    Nice new read! Been seeing a lot of hype on this one. Hope you love it once you get to read it!

    Here's my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. Have a great time. Be safe.

  3. I'm glad it didn't rain much so you could get outside. I like it to rain a bit every few days here to cool down the temp. It's mid 90s all the time now and less rain. I water the garden and flowers every night after dinner briefly. Enjoy the graduation; it may feel weird to be out and about.

    Have a wonderful week and stay well!

    Anne - Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post

  4. Oh, wow! An in-person graduation? I don't think I've heard of anyone having a ceremony with guests this year! My two youngest cousins just graduated from college and high school. The college grad had a Zoom ceremony and the high school grad had a drive-through ceremony.

    I've been seeing Fable around and while I normally avoid review books (they started feeling like work to me), this one is tempting. Enjoy your week!

  5. My daughter and her classmates are planning their graduation for early December, we are all hoping it will go ahead.

    Wishing you a great reading, and good weather

  6. My daughter graduated primary school here in Scotland, we didn’t get to have any ceremony but the teachers did send her a lovely keepsake with pictures of the class together.

    Have a good week.
