Sunday Post - 10/10/21

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.

Finally a mostly normal week. Well normal for now. We are mostly well again which is something we are very thankful for. Things are moving along with our house. Brick work is finished and mostly painted. Vinyl siding is mostly finished. Either the brick mason or the vinyl guys broke one of our windows. So now that has to be replaced. It isn't looking like we'll be back in our house in enough time to have the kids' birthday party like I wanted. We'll still have it, but we will just have to have it at my mom's. I'm so thankful that she's willing to let us do that. Friday, Husband was off work and took Little Boy to the pumpkin patch with his school. We have a tradition to go as a family, but the place we usually go is closed again this year due to COVID-19. So...we went to a different place as a family on Saturday. The kids still had fun. I finished birthday shopping and bought Halloween costumes this week too. Today is Husband's birthday. He doesn't ALWAYS read my blog, but in case he pops in, "Happy Birthday to my favorite person. I love you!" We're celebrating him and my dad today with my side of the family.

My annual "All Things Halloween" event is starting. 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--The first in a new historical rom-com series, a handsome earl hires a fake fiancée to keep his matchmaking mother at bay, but hilarity ensues when love threatens to complicate everything.

The last thing Hugh Standish, Earl of Fareham, ever wants is a wife. Unfortunately for him, his mother is determined to find him one, even from across the other side of the ocean. So, Hugh invents a fake fiancée to keep his mother’s matchmaking ways at bay. But when Hugh learns his interfering mother is on a ship bound for England, he realizes his complicated, convoluted but convenient ruse is about to implode. Until he collides with a beautiful woman, who might just be the miracle he needs.

Minerva Merriwell has had to struggle to support herself and her two younger sisters ever since their feckless father abandoned them. Work as a woodcut engraver is few and far between, and the Merriwell sisters are nearly penniless. So, when Hugh asks Minerva to pose as his fiancée while his mother is visiting, she knows that while the scheme sounds ludicrous, the offer is too good to pass up.

Once Minerva and her sisters arrive at Hugh's estate, of course, nothing goes according to his meticulous plan. As hilarity and miscommunication ensue, while everyone tries to keep their tangled stories straight, Hugh and Minerva’s fake engagement starts to turn into a real romance. But can they trust each other, when their relationship started with a lie?

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!
