Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 09/27/20

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 cannot believe October is upon us. 2020 has certainly been an odd year for most everyone. Although, not all bad. Some parts of it felt as if they would never pass by and other parts I look back on and wonder where the time went. We're entering the time of year where everything gets so busy for us. Three of our current four have birthdays in October, and that doesn't include my dad and nephew as well. This past week was a whirlwind. The weather has been lovely. Fall came in right on time here, especially compared to last year when we had 100 degree days in October. Since the weather has been so nice we've been getting out to play more frequently--and most importantly with less complaints from the kids. We've walked a few days. I did a pre-natal yoga workout. Boy am I out of shape! I'm still working through Little Girl's boxes and boxes of clothes. I've signed up for a consignment sale and I have a lot of work to get everything ready for that in the coming weeks. I did go ahead and order a new printer finally. I wish I could get the one we have to work properly, but unfortunately I simply must have a working printer for day to day use. Thursday was quite eventful. Despite having signs in our neighborhood that say no large trucks, we had a semi (18-wheeler--whatever you want to call it) come through. It took down at least two power poles at the corner of our street and took down lines right in front of our house. I was sitting at our desk when it came through and watched the whole thing happen. It was quite surreal, and we were without power for several hours. Typically the kids hate when the power is out, but they took a wireless keyboard and mouse, a calculator, and a toy phone to our big window and handled the admin of the whole event. They called the power company and the police. They sent the truck driver to jail for 5 hours. And they delegated work to the army of power and utility vehicles right in front of our house. The power company worked wonders and how the power back on two hours earlier than they expected; however the internet took an additional 5 hours to get fixed as they had to run all new cables. My "All Things Halloween" event starts up this coming week. This is a month-long event here at Somewhere Only We Know full of Halloween inspired and themed book reviews and posts (mostly reviews).

Goodreads description--Disappearances, strange activities in the night, and secret organizations abound in this mysterious Regency romance.

Haunted by the assault she’s kept hidden over the past four years, Charity Halliwell finally has a chance to return home to the quaint village she left more than five years before and the happy life she wants so badly to reclaim. All she needs is good conversation with her old friend and an opportunity to find a governess position, and she can leave the fear and guilt behind. But the family who agrees to her yearlong visit turns out to be a far cry from the one she thought she knew, particularly when her friend disappears and the one man she made certain would not be at the house is forced to return. How can she possibly heal and claim her independence when day in, day out she must face the only gentleman who ever held a piece of her heart?

Piers Cavanagh was branded a coward when he failed to show up for a duel he arranged. He had his reasons, of course, but disclosing them would hurt far more than continuing life as an outcast. And worse, with the mysterious departure of his sister, the strange nightly occurrences in the ruins of an old abbey, and the uncomfortable whispers of a secret organization, Piers must overcome his aversion to society and work with the last person he ever thought he would get the chance to speak to again—the girl whose heart he had no choice but to break.

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!
