Sunday Post 7th 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.

Last Week on the Blog:

  • New Year's Resolutions
  • Academy Award Tag

Books We Got This Week:

Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons, #2)Cloaked in Shadow (The Dragori, #1)Wilde in Love (The Wildes of Lindow Castle, #1)Sister Assassin (Sister Assassin, #1)
Batman Nightwalker by Marie Lu: This is the second in the DC series. I'm not as excited for this as I was for Wonder Woman but it still sounds good. 
Cloaked In Shadow by Ben Alderson: I love Ben's videos and this book sounds great!
Wilde in Love by Eloisa James: I've been feeling like reading romances lately so thought I'd pick this up.
Sister Assassin by Kiersten White: Any book about sisters automatically goes on my "yes please" pile and when you add in assassins its almost certainly a win.

Reading Update:

The FandomSophia's Secret (Slains, #1)The Plague Charmer
The Fandom by Anna Day: 3.5 stars, I loved the concept for this but struggled with some of the aspects, like the romance. Still was a fun read though. 
Sophia's Secret by Susanna Kearsley: 5 stars, This was a re-read of an old favourite because I unpacked it and then immediately wanted to read it! 
The Plague Charmer by Karen Maitland: 4.5 stars, OMG this was dark. And fairly historically accurate. Which the history student in me totally adored. This was just really good and I'm not sure why I haven't picked up any of her books before.


  1. Ooh I like the look of Sister Assassin!

  2. Oh what a nice haul! I want Batman too . I hope you enjoy all of your reads!

    My STS:

  4. The cover for Batman looks so good haha

  5. I love the Cloaked In Shadow cover. I am not a superhero fan, but I love Marie Lu. Might have to give Batman a go. Enjoy all your new books.
