Sunday Post 28th January 2018

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 Reading Reality 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.

Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram: Sent to me by Vera @ Regal Critiques! She recommended this book to me once and I've wanted it ever since so I am super excited to read it!
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden: I haven't actually read the first book yet but had this pre-ordered. Hopefully I can read both books soon! 
Storm Raven by K. Hanson: Thank you so much to the author for sending me a copy of this! I love all things piratical so this is high on my list!
The Darkest Magic by Morgan Rhodes: I somehow never read A Book of Spirits and Thieves even though I love the Falling Kingdoms series. The last book is coming out soon so I'd like the read this spin-off series before then! 



Reading Update:

The Sacrifice BoxWaR: Wizards and RobotsI Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1)The Light Between Oceans
The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart: 4.5 stars, This was really, really good! I have a review up for it here if you're interested. It's a super creepy, fun read and I am so excited for whatever Martin Stewart writes next!
Wizards and Robots by Will.I.Am and Brian David Johnson: 4 stars, This was so, so much fun! My review has gone up and you can check it out here
I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga: 4 stars, Really enjoyed how brutal this book got. It definitely wasn't stingy with the details which made the whole thing feel more realistic. Continuing the series wont be a priority for me but I would like to at some point.
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman: 4.5 stars, OMG did I cry. The last few chapters of this book were just a total sob-fest for me. There were bits toward the beginning that were a little slow but by the end they served to feed into all the feels. Definitely a super emotional read.

  2. I read Cinder & Ella a while ago, but remember it fondly. Ella's strength of character was something that really stood out to me, and the romance is swoony too. Hope you love it!

  3. I think I must read The Light Between Oceans...I saw the movie recently, and while I don't often watch the movie first, I don't think I would have been interested otherwise. The title did nothing for me.

    Beautiful movie...and now for the book! Thanks for sharing...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
