Sunday Post 13th August 2017

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. 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 or click the title to go to the review.

Books We Got This Week:

Seeing RedSwearing Off StarsThe Girl Who Wasn't DeadBlack Bird of the Gallows
Seeing Red by Sandra Brown: Thank you to Hodder & Stoughton for sending me a copy of this book for review! I was very excited when it arrived in the post because Sandra Brown books have always been fun when I've read them in the past!
Swearing Off Stars by Danielle M. Wong: Received via Netgalley. This is an LGBTQ Historical novel which I don't see often so I basically just auto-requested it. I don't know much more about it but I am loving the cover and am excited to read it!
The Girl Who Wasn't Dead by Samantha Boyette: Received via Netgalley. This sounds like One of Us Is Lying meets Pretty Little Liars with an LGBTQ protagonist! I will be reading this very soon because I am buddy reading it with Vera @ Regal Critiques.
Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel: Received via Netgalley. This is one of those books that I wasn't that interested in but the more I hear about it and the closer it gets to release the more enticing I find it.
