Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 01/03/21

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.

Monday and Tuesday were mostly normal days. We were able to get outside and play because the weather was fairly nice. Wednesday I had a doctor's appointment. My mom came over to watch the kids while I was gone. All seems well so far. Baby Boy is already up to 7 pounds 9 ounces. He's a big one I tell you. And physically, I'm counting down the days until he's here. Emotionally, I'm trying to soak up these last little bit just having two kiddos and giving them as much love and attention as possible since I know things will be chaotic with a newborn. The weather was so nice Wednesday and we stayed outside as long as possible. Thursday we had some cloudy/rainy weather roll in, but we were still able to go out. And we even went for a walk, which is the first I've done in a while. Husband bought a few fireworks on his way home and shot them with the kids. They were so excited. We shoot fireworks at the 4th of July in honor of Husband's Dad so they've been asking for more fireworks. Friday, Husband was home from work, but it was a rainy day.

His current mission is to thwart the reelection of Congressman Clyde Magruder, his only real enemy in the world.

But trouble begins when Luke meets Marianne Magruder, the congressman's only daughter, whose job as a government photographer gives her unprecedented access to sites throughout the city. Luke is captivated by Marianne's quick wit and alluring charm, leading them both into a dangerous gamble to reconcile their feelings for each other with Luke's driving passion for vital reforms in Congress.

Goodreads description--Amid the violent last days of the glittering Russian court, a Russian princess on the run finds her heart where she least expects it.

1917, Petrograd. Fleeing the murderous flames of the Russian Revolution, princess Svetlana Dalsky hopes to find safety in Paris with her mother and sister. But the city is buckling under the weight of the Great War, and the Bolsheviks will not rest until they have erased every Russian aristocrat from memory.

Born the second son of a duke, the only title Wynn MacCallan cares for is that of surgeon. Putting his talents with a scalpel to good use in the hospitals in Paris, Wynn pushes the boundaries of medical science to give his patients the best care possible. While treating Svetlana for a minor injury, he is pulled into a world of decaying imperial glitter and underground Russian clubs where drink, culture, and questionable dealings collide on bubbles of vodka.

Out of money and options, Svetlana is forced into a marriage of convenience with Wynn, who will protect her and pay off her debts. It’s the right thing for a good man to do, but Wynn can’t help hoping the marriage will turn into one of true affection. As the Bolsheviks chase them to different corners of the earth, Wynn and Svetlana begin to see they will never be able to outrun the love they have for one another.

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!
