Sunday Post 22nd April 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.

Over on The Regal Critiques this week I posted my review of My Lady's Choosing (which you might remember me raving about last week here) so definitely check it out here if you would like to know more about that book!!

Books We Got This Week:

Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game #1)Aru Shah and the End of Time (Pandava Quartet, #1)LizzieDread Nation (Dread Nation, #1)Starfish
Honestly this has just been the best week for new books for us. Ace of Shades is one of my most anticipated releases of the year and now I have a signed special edition of it (I'm dying of happiness right now), Aru Shah and the End of Time is one of those Middle Grade books that's making me want to jump back into MG in a big way. It looks incredible. Lizzie is a modern day Lizzie Borden retelling AND its LGBT so this is basically just my dream book. Likewise Dread Nation is diversity, history and zombies what more could I possibly ever want. And Starfish is one I've been going back and forth on wanting for a while but the author seems so lovely on Twitter that I decided to go for it. 

Reading Update:

The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy, #1)
Not finished yet: City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty I am absolutely in love with. I'm about halfway through and trying to savour it. There's so much going on and the world is so rich and inventive. The writing reminds me a little of Laini Taylor if only in how incredibly unique and alive everything feels. And the characters are incredible. I will be posting a  review of this once I'm finished.


  1. I love it when I get a book in the mail that I've been longing to read. The most recent time that happened was receiving the new Richard Powers book in the mail. Enjoy!

  2. Ace of Shades have been quite popular.

  3. I cannot wait to get my hands on Ace of Shades and Dread Nation! They're two of my most anticipated reads! I've also had my eye on City of Brass since before it came out and I'm really glad you're enjoying it so far! Hope you enjoy all your new books and have a wonderful week!

  6. I've seen ace of Shades popping up a few times and it seems to be getting good buzz? Also Starfish and Dread Nation are supposed to be pretty good (I've seen some VERY enthusiastic reviews for Dread Nation).

    I LOVE that cover of the City of Brass.

  7. I read Dread Nation last week and really liked it. Have a great week and enjoy your new books!
