Sunday Post - 05/22/22

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 night Little Boy had closing ceremony. He was so happy to have a trophy. Husband switched to 4 10-hour work days this past week, and Tuesday was his off day. He surprised me with taking me and the boys furniture shopping. We didn't see anything we wanted to buy exactly, but we did get some ideas. Wednesday, Husband took the kids to school and ended up having a flat tire. Big surprise but there was a large nail in it. We weren't surprised at all because our lazy contractors haphazardly dropped nails, screws, and whatever all over the yard and driveway. Even though we've gone over much of the property with a large magnet, we are still constantly finding nails, screws, glass, concrete, brick pieces, random construction trash all over our yard. Thursday, it was me and the boys during the day. We had a good day for the most part. And then Friday was both big kids' last day of school. I got bit by a dog in our neighborhood on our walk. I was walking in the middle of the street and nowhere close to his/her property. The little terror came running straigt for me and snagged my ankle before I knew it. Honestly, I figured it was going to happen because this same dog has nipped me on the foot before several years ago. We live in the country so we have no burn laws and burned some boxes Friday afternoon. The fire was out, but Little Boy picked up something that was still hot and burned his thumb and pointer finger. His pointer finger does have a blister on it but his thumb looks much better than I thought at first. His crying woke Baby Boy up, and I had a mom fail and snapped at Little Girl during the whole process. It was a rough end to the day. Saturday, Little Girl had closing ceremony. After that we ran to a graduation party for a guy who goes to church with us. Then we came home and worked on the pool and yard. The pool has two years of neglect basically because it sat from fall of 2020 until April 2022 when we finally started giving it some attention again. But I feel like I'm finally seeing some progree on it, and we sure know how to turn a green pool back to clear blue.

Goodreads description--A laugh-out-loud funny and whip-smart romantic comedy from the author of The Shaadi Set-Up, about a young woman who takes the place of her celebrity doppelgänger, and must fake-date the actress’s sexy costar boyfriend.

Writer Freya Lal has a huge secret: she’s a dead ringer for It-girl actress Mandi Roy. Her second novel is due in a month, but inspiration is nowhere to be found. Desperate to shake off her writer’s block, Freya leans into her look-alike abilities and indulges in some mistaken identity for simple perks, like scoring a free mimosa or getting into a trendy nightclub.

Actor Taft Bamber appears to have it all: gorgeous, talented, and Mandi’s love interest both on- and off-screen. But what nobody knows is that their relationship is a PR stunt, and after years of playing make-believe, he’s yearning for something real.

When Freya’s latest impersonation of Mandi goes viral thanks to Taft’s accidental interference, rumors of a breakup threaten Hollywood’s golden couple. To make amends, Freya is forced to give Mandi a little time off: she’ll pretend to be the actress for a month, move in with Taft, and squash the rumors by acting completely in love. But as Freya and Taft play house, it becomes impossible to ignore that their instant chemistry isn’t just for the cameras. While faking it, they might have just found the real thing.

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!
