Sunday Post 12th February 2017

STSmall_thumb[2]

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer, it's a chance to post a recap on the past week, show the books we have received and share what we plan for the coming week. Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and the aim is to show our newest books and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops or downloaded on to their e-reader. As always you can click on any of the pictures to be taken to the Goodreads page for that book if you're interested in finding out more about it.

Last Week on the Blog:


Books We Got This Week:

Ann:
Crow Moon (Crow Moon, #1)Rise of the Wolf (Wereworld, #1)
Crowmoon by Anna McKerrow: Clare bought me this book and although I don't know much about it, I think that I may enjoy it a lot and I don't read many books where the main character is boy so that should be interesting!
Wereworld by Curtis Jobling: Clare also bought me this book and although it isn't a book I would buy for myself typically I am very excited to read it!

Clare:
Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 (Wires and Nerves, #1)The Edge of EverythingUnconventional
Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer: YES!!! It FINALLY arrived! I had this pre-ordered and it just took forever to get sent to us which was so frustrating but now we have it! 
The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles: I went back and forth on whether or not to get this one and finally decided it looked and sounded awesome! I've seen some great reviews and hopefully I will enjoy it!
Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt: I enjoyed Maggie Harcourt's first novel and this one sounds even better - I mean who can resist a book about a Convention? Especially with me and Ann going to YALC this July! So excited!

Reading Update:

Ann:

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)Frostbite (Vampire Academy, #2)Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3)Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)
Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5)Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6)Vengeance RoadDeathcat Sally
The Vampire Academy Series: 5 stars, I watched The Vampire Academy film with my twin brother on Saturday and then I really wanted to reread the whole series and so I did! It didn't take me long but it has put me back into a reading mood!
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman: 5 stars, Clare recommended that I read this book and I loved it, the character was incredible and I really enjoyed the plot!
Deathcat Sally by P.S. Brooks: 3.5 stars, At first I was not really enjoying this book but as I read on I started to enjoy the plot and the characters so overall is was a good book, a review will be coming soon!

Clare:
WintersongHold Back The StarsWires and Nerve, Volume 1 (Wires and Nerves, #1)Sweet Lake: A Novel (Sweet Lake, #1)
Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones: 4 stars, The writing was gorgeous and the characters and romance were engaging. I was disappointed by some of the plot but overall I really enjoyed this. 
Hold Back the Stars by Katie Khan: 2.5 stars, I still really don't know how I feel about this one. I liked the concept but didn't really care about the characters and I am still just really confused by the ending. 
Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer: 4 stars, This was a great addition to the series. It was great to see all the characters and match them up to the image of them in my head. I can't wait to continue the series!
Sweet Lake by Christine Nolfi: 4.5 stars, A really strong start to the series with great characters and an engaging plot. I really felt for Linnie and was rooting for her from the very first page. My review of this will be up on Thursday.

Crownmoon's cover is stunning! I'm looking forward to your thoughts on it Ann! I am really looking forward to reading Wires and Nerve as well as The Edge of Everything. I actually have an ARC of The Edge of Everything. Do you maybe want to buddy read it? You both had amazing weeks! Here's hoping this upcoming one is just as great!

Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!

Greg said...

Wereworld has an amazing cover, and Wires and Nerve- glad it arrived!

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

I loved Sweet Lake...and I'm curious about Unconventional. Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your week.

Love the cover for Crow Moon! Thanks for sharing, have a great week!

Crowmoon's cover is gorgeous!!! I hope you enjoy it Ann
Clare, I think I want to check out the The Edge of Everything as well too! Hope is good!

Amanda K Thompson said...

Yeah, I'm just leaving this page up until I have time to check out all the posts from last week. They all sound so interesting, especially the Wintersong review and Bookish Identity Tags. I only added The Edge of Everything to my TBR this morning and I had to follow it up with UnConventional; it sounds too good to pass up!
Here's my Sunday Post!

Clare Stone said...

I'd love to buddy read The Edge of Everything! It looks great! Wires and Nerve was really great - if you're a fan of The Lunar Chronicles I definitely recommend it!

Clare Stone said...

I've been having quite a few pre-orders lately that don't arrive until weeks after the release date and it's driving me crazy! But Wires and Nerve was worth the wait!

Clare Stone said...

Sweet Lake was great! You'd mentioned enjoying it and I was worried I was overhyping it but it was just as good as you said!

Clare Stone said...

Hopefully we will both enjoy The Edge of Everything! It looks like a great read! Thanks for stopping by and for following!

Clare Stone said...

Haha! I do that with Sunday Posts sometimes as well! Unconventional does sound so fun, right? We are going to our first Con this year so it really appealed to me! Plus I enjoyed her first book!

Clare Stone said...

The cover really appealed to me but it sounded more like Ann's type of book so I grabbed it for her! Hopefully she will enjoy it!

Cons are fantastic! You two will love it. I've been to few writers conventions and I had the chance to go to SDCC a few years back. That was one of the most amazing experiences I've had. I really need to hit another one.

Clare Stone said...

They all look so great! Hopefully they are as good as they look! Thanks for stopping by!
