Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 10/4/20

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 busy week! Kids are still enjoying school. And I've been filling up the hours when they're gone with tons of chores and tasks. Tuesday was rainy but we still played out on the patio for a while. I had another doctor's appointment on Thursday. Baby seems to be doing well. I didn't have an ultrasound this week, but we did listen to his heartbeat. The kids and I spent the rest of the day at my mom's house. Friday I had to run to the grocery store. Seems like I'm having to go in more and more lately. I needed to pick up some invitations for Little Girl's birthday party coming up. I sold a batch of clothes to a friend and she came to pick it up. I finished tagging my clothes to take to consignment next week. Saturday was my dad's birthday. We traveled to Gulf Shores to celebrate my niece's birthday and my dad's birthday. That was a fun day, but we spent a lot of time in the car. The kids did well all things considered. I started feeling some pain from the side of my stomach that goes all the way down to my leg. Husband researched on old Google, and we're thinking Baby might be pressing on my femoral nerve. It didn't start happening until after my doctor's appointment, so I didn't get a chance to ask her about it. I'm hoping most of that is due to just being in the car for so long at one time.

My annual "All Things Halloween" event started last Tuesday. This is my month-long event where I feature reviews from Halloween-y genres (fantasy, paranormal, supernatural, sci-fi, horror, mystery, thriller, and suspense). Over the last few years I've had mostly fantasy books as I just haven't been in the mood for much horror, but still...these are books that can get you in the mood for Halloween.

Goodreads description--Forty-something Defiance Dayne only recently discovered she comes from a long line of powerful witches. Added to that was the teensy, infinitesimal fact that she is what’s called a charmling. One of three on the entire planet. And there are other witches who will stop at nothing to steal her immense power, which would basically involve her unfortunate and untimely death.

No one told her life after forty would mean having to learn new lifeskills—such as how to dodge supernatural assassins while casting from a moving vehicle—or that the sexiest man alive would be living in her basement.

Whoever said life begins at forty was clearly a master of the underappreciated and oft maligned understatement.

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!
