The Sunday Post #37 - 7th February 2016

sunday post, book blog, blogger, weekly review

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted here by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I'm gonna recap my week and give you an idea of what I have coming up plus anything else newsworthy!



So how was everyone's week? 

In sunny Scotland the weather is still dismal but it is winter so really shouldn't expect anything different.

So you may remember last week I read Cinder, which FYI I loved. Like love love love loved, I am always suspicious of hype, which of course does surround the Lunar Chronicles in bucketloads.  But the hype was right, it was so good.


Anyway I started reading Scarlet and am a couple of chapters in, really enjoying it but then a great package landed on my doorstep and basically fucked up my reading plans (but in a good way)!


This arrived on my doorstep....


And I was all ....


But to appreciate this book I thought I had better re-read the last two books Red Rising and Golden Son because my brain will struggle just a little to remember what the hell happened with all those characters but Darrow I remember and I want to see how this story ends.

Anyone else read Pierce Brown's series?


Have a good week everyone!


God I slacked last week and was meant to review Cinder but as usual stuff gets in the way.






Yep I will do my best to go on and on and on about this during the coming week!




How young do Mulder and Scully look!!!!!?

The new X Files starts on Monday and I am looking forward to it! It scared me to death the first time round, it had better do it again!



I have received physical and e-copies of some fab books this week, thank you to all the publishers for sending them! Also, some of them are my own purchases, the pics link to Goodreads for you to find 
out more!

 KINDLE FREEBIES (MAY NOT BE ANYMORE!)

Happy Sunday!

  1. You are awash in good reads LOL! That's the best, when you have a good one and ANOTHER arrives. Cha- ching! I was at the bookstore today and thought about reading some SAGA LOL, the graphic novel section was huge- there are so many now. I didn't get to them though... one of these days!

    Is that a New Girl GIF? I like her... :)

  2. Ohh I must start the Red Rising series soon, I've kind of been holding off on them because I want to binge read them all at once. Have heard nothing but amazing things, so keen to start! Have a lovely week Heather xx

  3. Did you put Scarlet aside to re-read the predecessors to your new arrival?

    (I haven't heard of any but can very much appreciate faves landing on your doorstep!

    And the new XFiles only started here last week - so we're two episodes in. I haven't watched them yet (and no. 3 is on tonight) so I'm taping them until I get time to do a binge-watch!

  4. I'm way behind on book reviews! I have books I read 5 years ago with no review, no notes and barely any memory of what it is about! This year I'm determined to get fully caught up! As for the weather, I always describe myself as a winter person but I'm hating all these storms and wishing spring would come!

    1. I am still way behind, will catch up eventually!!! You'll get caught up!!

  5. I got Morning Star this week, too! Book Depository sent it out early, and I don't have the same self control as you have, Heather, I've started reading it! I could not wait.
    I'm really glad you enjoyed Cinder! Sometimes, the hype is right :) I have only read that one, but I have the next books in the series as well.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  7. Can I join you for the drinking/eating ? I'll soon start reading Cinder, I was wary of the hype too but I can't resist any longer. I haven't read Pierce Brown yet either, I will ! I have to. And I have to watch the new X-files too !! Can I call in sick and stay home and do all that ? And Saga !!!! Yay !!! #5 hasn't been released in France yet, but I'm waiting ! All this to say : enjoy ! ;)

    1. The hype is justified for both Cinder and Red Rising! I need to hurry up and start watching the X Files!

  8. I just reread Cinder a couple weeks ago and I'm rereading Scarlet right now! Scarlet is my favorite of the two. I'm building up to read the rest of the series for one of my reading challenges this year, but I needed a reminder of the world because I haven't read the books since they were released... and that's A LOT of books ago. They're so imaginative. I can't wait to finish Scarlet and get on with the rest of the series!

    1. A lot of bloggers rave about Scarlet! I have the whole series plus the one with the short stories in it too, looking forward to reading the rest!

  9. Moulder and Scully look like babies! I watched the show the first time around but was never a super devoted fan. I've been wanting to do a rewatch though. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed Cinder. I've got one book ahead of it in my audio list and I can't wait! I'm intrigued by the Wrinkle in Time graphic novel. It was one of my favorite books as a kid and I'm really wanting to do a reread and I'll have to add the graphic novel to my list. Have a great week!

    1. I had never read the original Wrinkle in Time but I think I will go back and do it, I loved the graphic version. Scully has aged reaally well I would love to know her secret!!

  10. While I loved the Lunar chronicles..I totally agree Morning Star must be consumed now, immediately. Life is too be put on hold!! I ordered a signed copy and watching it in transit is killing me!!

    1. Yep Morning Star is a must and Pierce Brown seems like the nicest author in the world!

      Delete
  11. I knew you'd love The Lunar Chronicles if you got the chance to read them. I don't fault you at all for putting it to the side for Morning Star. I preordered it. I also feel like I should read the first 2 books again, but I don't want to wait to read MS to do it. LOL!

    1. No I had to do it so I could re-read them all back to back and savour them again!!!!

  12. I have not read anything by Pierce Brown but I DO want too. It's good all three are out now, so that's a good sign for me to get on it. haha I'm glad you loved Cinder; can't wait to see your review. I don't any of the Saga books, but I DID just read volumes 3-5 via library books and they were great. Hope you love them too!

  14. I'm so glad you loved Cinder! Can't wait for your review and for you to read the rest of the series. As for Pierce Brown's books, you and everyone else are raving about them, so I may get to them one of these days!

  15. AHH MORNING STARRRRR!! I'm in the same "I forget what happened in teh first two books" boat though. XD And like I do want to re-read??? But I have so many books I need to read at the moment, so wah, I don't think I'll be re-reading at this point. BUT I STILL WANNA KNOW HOW IT ENDS SO BAD.
    (Also yay for loving Cinder!! I think the books just get better and better as they along too, although Scarlet and Wolf are my squishy favourite. <33)
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  18. We mostly got rain and widn here, the weather is not too bad for winter, but I do miss the snow. I haven't read Pierce Brown's series, but I heard good things. I'll have to remember to stop by later this week for your review of Cinder, it's on my to-read list. I hope you'll have a great week!
