Sunday Post 12th November 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.

Last Week on the Blog:



Books We Got This Week:

The BetrayalFantastic Beasts and Where to Find ThemThe Mitford Murders (Mitford Murders #1)
The Betrayal by Kate Furnivall: One of my favourite historical fiction writers ever. I had to grab this when I saw it in Tesco.
Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling: The illustrations are insanely gorgeous. I am currently reading this and loving it.
The Mitford Murders by Jessica Fellowes: This is apparently the perfect Christmas mystery so I'm putting it aside for Christmas and I am excited!


Reading Update:

Ann:
The Marked Girl (Marked Girl, #1)
The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele: 4 stars, This was amazing but I didn't like the cliffhanger ending. Also the main male character got on my nerves a lot with his rudeness and stupidity. 

Clare:
The Empress (The Diabolic #2)The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic (Grisha Verse, #0.5, #2.5, #2.6)Florence Grace: The Richard & Judy bestselling author
The Empress by S.J. Kincaid: 4 stars, This is a tough one. The ending was intense but I didn't feel the book as a whole was as good as the first book (The Diabolic). I also feel like I'm maybe on the wrong side by the end but I'll be very interested to see where this goes in Book 3.
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo: 5 stars, Just. So. Incredibly. Beautiful. The illustrations, the tales themselves. It was all so perfect. If you love the Grishaverse you NEED this and if you've never read a Grisha book (then firstly go do that) then you would still enjoy these fairytales. 
Florence Grace by Tracy Rees: 3 stars, I adored Tracy's first book Amy Snow, this one had much the same enchanting writing. And as much as I loved the main character I just wasn't as entranced by the plot. And the ending wasn't to my liking.

  6. The Mitford Murders looks so good, so definitely let me know how it is when you read it! As for The Empress - we ARE on the right side there, whilst everyone else is on the wrong one, *obviously*.
