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:
Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi: I LOVED the Shatter Me series so obviously hearing about this follow-up is both super exciting and makes me incredibly nervous.
Window by Amelia Brunskill: This was pure cover lust combined with a sale. I know very little about this but I'm getting a Rear Window vibe from the cover so hopefully some of that?
Active Memory by Dan Wells: You know how you pick up a book at a charity shop because its an incredibly fun cover and then you get home and find out its the third book in the series? Cause yeah, that. Still I've ordered books 1 and 2 but they wont get here for at least a month (delivery times whyyyy) so it will be a while before I read this.
Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon: I love Dickens novels and I love gender swapping classics. I've read Doon by Lorie Langdon and loved it so I have pretty high hopes for this.
The Radical Element: A Tyranny of Petticoats was one of my favourite anthologies. It had some less than stellar stories but for the most part was pretty impressive. This has a really amazing list of authors involved, I know nothing about any of the stories because I want to go in blind.
My Lady's Choosing by Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris: If you've been following the blog for any length of time you might know how much I love choose-your-own-adventure when its written for adults and this super delivered. I will be reviewing this shortly but if you love romance novels this is pretty much a must-buy. It manages to poke fun at the genre in such a loving way. This is the only book I read this week but it felt like reading multiple fully developed stories.
Let me know what you've been reading and buying in the last week (why not add to my TBR even more) and if you've read any of these let me know what you thought of them!!
