Sunday Post 20th May 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.

This week I reviewed Elemental Claim by Miranda Grant which I loved - if you enjoy Paranormal Romance stories you should definitely check it out! 

Books We Got This Week:

The Poppy WarThe Wicked ComethCatching StarsSky in the DeepDevils Unto Dust
There has been a lot of talk on Twitter lately about The Poppy War and it really intrigued me so I thought I'd pick it up! Hopefully I'll get to it this summer! The Wicked Cometh is really exciting because it's LGBTQ historical mystery/romance which is one of my favourite genres! Catching Stars was a surprise bonus book in a subscription box but I'm really happy about it because I've been following Oftomes for a while now and always want to support the publisher. Sky in the Deep has gotten nothing but rave reviews so obviously high expectations there. And finally Devils Unto Dust sounded like exactly my kind of read with survival elements! 

Reading Update:

You Know Me WellStyleSight LinesIce
You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan: 4 stars, For such a short book this did a great job with characters and relationships. I really enjoyed both perspectives which was nice and I'd love for these two to write more books together!
Style by Chelsea M. Cameron: 4 stars, I've been recommended this a lot. I did enjoy it, at times the perspectives felt too young for me (but that's just cause I'm so old now) and I really wish I'd read it as a teenager when it would have been perfect for me! 
Sight Lines by Michelle DiCeglio: 4.5 stars, I fully loved this. The relationship was good, the mystery was strong and the characters were well developed. I definitely want to read more by DiCeglio so will be keeping an eye out!
Ice by Lyn Gardner: 4 stars, Super romantic (cheesily so at times - which I loved) and had one of those perfect ever after epilogues you get so often in romance. Unrealistic maybe but so much more fun to read.

  7. I absolutely loved Sky In The Deep! One of my favorite books of the year thus far! I keep meaning to look into Devils Unto Dust but keep spacing it. I need to get on that. It seems interesting. I also saw all that talk about The Poppy War on Twitter and it definitely put that book on my radar.

    I hope you have a great week and enjoy all your new books! :)

      I'm hoping to read Devils Unto Dust soon, it really does look intriguing although I totally almost passed it by as well!
      The drama about The Poppy War definitely seems to have worked in its favour - and I'm looking forward to read it!
      Have a great week!! :)
