Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 07/19/20

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.

We've had a good week here. Holly and my niece, Ashlyn, came to hang out with us Tuesday. We went for a walk and went swimming. The kids have actually been swimming almost twice a day every day. I've been taking them after our walks around the neighborhood where we get super hot and sweaty. Then Husband will take them after he gets home from work. Thursday, I took the kids to visit my mom. She was also serving as a babysitter while I ran to the doctor's office. I can now officially announce that we are expecting Baby # 3 (in January 2021). We suffered our 2nd miscarriage at the beginning of January and so 2020 started off really sad for us...and didn't get much better. I wasn't even ready mentally or emotionally to start trying again. But when I saw that positive test (on Memorial Day), I was filled with joy and excitement. Yesterday we went to a family celebration for my nephew who graduated high school last weekend.

Goodreads description--From the beloved author of Tweet Cute comes Emma Lord's You Have a Match, a YA novel of family, friendship, romance and sisterhood…

When Abby signs up for a DNA service, it’s mainly to give her friend and secret love interest, Leo, a nudge. After all, she knows who she is already: Avid photographer. Injury-prone tree climber. Best friend to Leo and Connie…although ever since the B.E.I. (Big Embarrassing Incident) with Leo, things have been awkward on that front.

But she didn’t know she’s a younger sister.

When the DNA service reveals Abby has a secret sister, shimmery-haired Instagram star Savannah Tully, it’s hard to believe they’re from the same planet, never mind the same parents—especially considering Savannah, queen of green smoothies, is only a year and a half older than Abby herself.

The logical course of action? Meet up at summer camp (obviously) and figure out why Abby’s parents gave Savvy up for adoption. But there are complications: Savvy is a rigid rule-follower and total narc. Leo is the camp’s co-chef, putting Abby's growing feelings for him on blast. And her parents have a secret that threatens to unravel everything.

But part of life is showing up, leaning in, and learning to fit all your awkward pieces together. Because sometimes, the hardest things can also be the best ones.

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!
