Sunday Post 3rd December 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.

Books I Got This Week:

The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy, #1)Artemis
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty: This is a 2018 book I am really looking forward to so I'm excited to have received it!!
Artemis by Andy Weir: I loved The Martian but was tentative about this. I'm glad it was in a subscription box because it means I never had to make the decision! Since receiving it I've heard some great things!

Reading Update:

Ask the PassengersPlease Ignore Vera DietzThe Irregular: A Different Class of SpyThe Dragon’s Legacy (The Dragon's Legacy, #1)
Ask the Passengers by A.S. King: 4.5 stars, This was every bit as great as people have told me it was! I mentioned it in my wrap up if you want to see more of my thoughts (this applies to all of these I think).
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King: 4 stars, Not quite as amazing as Ask the Passengers but still very enjoyable and emotional!
The Irregular by H.B. Lyle: 3 stars, Will have a full review up for this soon. It was a good mystery but not outstanding and I did have a few problems with it.
The Dragon's Legacy by Deborah A. Wolf: 4.5 stars, A really promising start to a fantasy series! I will have a review up for this soon as well!
