Sunday Post (46) / Stacking the Shelves (26)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Ahoy,

Wow, we’re already into the new year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe one! I went out to one of my favourite restaurants with some friends and a had a fancy (and delicious) dinner (: Our book club is doing well. We just finished out first book (Vicious by V.E Schwab) and discussion and now we’re going on to book 2 (Ready Player One by Ernest Cline). I’m already loving all the 80’s reference. It’s also been like a deep freeze here ): Hopefully it warms up soon!

(02) Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen

Oh I almost forgot I picked up A Dance with Dragons!  It got shuffled to sit with the rest of A Song of Ice and Fire series. I’m still actually stuck on A Clash of Kings right now (but I only have like ~200pgs left!) but at some point I will finish it, and get to the rest of the books. Also, thanks to Strange Chemistry for the ARC! How pretty is that cover? It definitely sounds pretty interesting.

Buzz Kill - Beth FantaskeyMust Love Dukes - Elizabeth Michels(01) Buzz Kill by Beth Fantaskey
(02) Must Love Dukes by Elizabeth Michels

Thanks HMH Books for Young Readers, Sourcebook Casablanca & Netgalley! Buzz Kill sounds like a really murder mystery (which is kind of weird to use the cute to describe murders, but I think I just really like the title’s play on words haha). Must Love Dukes also so really cute from the blurb. I hope there’s lot of funny shenanigan.

  1. Happy New Year! Have fun w/ Ready Player One, I just read it recently and definetly geeked out over all the 80’s references. Liked it a lot.

    Buzz Kill looks fun too.

    1. Thanks! I’m almost done and I’m totally enjoying all the 80’s references haha.

  2. Booo for the freeze. Hope you stay warm and enjoy your books!

    1. At least the cold is a good excuse to stay in and read 😉 Thanks!

  3. I’m on A storm of swords for the last year lol, I need to get back to it and finish the series, they are just sooo long and I feel guilty when I have review books waiting!

    1. Haha, the books are just so long! At least you made it to A Storm of Swords 😉 I’m reaaaally hoping I’ll finish A Clash of Kings this year. I know what you mean! Good luck with the series!

  4. I love your copy of Stolen Songbird! I requested one and I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I can’t wait to see what you think of Avalon, I just finished Proxy and Avalon too 🙂

    1. Thanks! I hope you get a copy!
      Ooh, can’t wait to see your thoughts on Avalon too! I haven’t read Proxy yet though haha.
