Sunday Post 21st 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.

Books We Got This Week:

Gunslinger GirlSpare and Found PartsThe Naturals (The Naturals, #1)The Wages of SinDragon Age: Knight Errant
Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely: I am so excited for this one! It looks exciting and the main character seems like a total badass! 
Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin: I was sent this by Titan Books for review and I'm so excited for it! It's one of my most anticipated for the year and it has beautiful sprayed pages!
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes: I was sent this by Vera @ Regal Critiques who is enjoying this series at the moment. I have read some of Barnes' books before and enjoyed them so I am looking forward to this one.
The Wages of Sin by Kaite Welsh: Sent by Tinder Press. I love historical murder mysteries so I cannot wait to read this!!
Dragon Age Knight Errant: As you probably know I adore the Dragon Age games so I was super excited for this. I've already read it (and loved it).

Reading Update:

Hostage to Pleasure (Psy-Changeling, #5)Branded by Fire (Psy-Changeling, #6)TimeRiders (TimeRiders, #1)Day of the Predator (TimeRiders, #2)Weightless
Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh: 4 stars, Dorian wasn't my favourite love interest of the series so far but it was a great book nonetheless. I am so glad to get back into this series!
Branded By Fire by Nalini Singh: 4.5 stars, This was probably my favourite couple of the series so far. The plot line wasn't as engaging as some of the others but was still enough for me! 
Time Riders by Alex Scarrow: 4 stars, A solid start to a series. The first half was a little slow but the second half was packed with excitement and got surprisingly dark which I loved!
Day of the Predator by Alex Scarrow: 4 stars, I love anything dinosaur related so this was the book in the series I was most excited for. It was definitely fun but I didn't get as absorbed in it as I expected to and I didn't love seeing inside the mind of the "predator" it removed some of the suspense for me. 
Weightless by Sarah Bannan: 3.5 stars, This was such a unique read. It was sometimes super uncomfortable reading from the "we" perspective but it made the whole thing more tense and felt more accurate. 
A Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles, #1)The Hazel Wood (The Hazel Wood, #1)Dragon Age: Knight Errant
A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet: 4 stars, I was pleasantly surprised to find this was a good mix of fantasy and romance. I was expecting something romance heavy but got a fairly well developed world and magic system. I loved the main character and I think I definitely want to continue the series. 
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert: 5 stars, OMG SO GOOD. Honestly just incredible, I will have a full review up on it's release date (30th January).
Dragon Age Knight Errant: 5 stars, This gave me so many feels. If you love the Dragon Age games then I guarantee you'll adore it. And if you haven't played them - this is still a great graphic novel with some amazing characters. I'm hoping Vaea will be appearing in the next game because I loved her!

  4. I have been binging on the Psy Changeling series! I just finished Kiss of Snow and oh my goodness! So loved it! Have a great week!

  5. The Naturals has always looked like a fun series to me. And dragon Age Errant sounds great, even though I've never played the game. I'd like to though!
