Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc!
So a bunch of books I had requested came in all at once at the local library (funny how they always seem to come in at once, huh?)
I’ve really been anticipating Love Letters to the Dead due to a couple of factors: 1) The cover is absolutely gorgeous and 2) Stephen Chbosky, author of the Perks of Being a Wallflower, has spoken so highly about it. I’m about a hundred pages in, and while it’s interesting it definitely shares strong similarities with Perks.
This book literally became available in my library hold the day after I bought Second Chance Summer at the Scholastic Warehouse Sale, so I have a lot of Matson’s work very high up on my TBR list at the moment. Since You’ve Been Gone has had a lot of talk surrounding it (all good things I’ve heard so far, at least) so I’m surprised and thankful it came in so fast after I requested it. Also, although it’s probably unrelated to the song plot-wise, I cannot get the Kelly Clarkson song out of my head whenever I think of this book.
Have you read either of these yet? Did you find strong similarities between Love Letters to the Dead and The Perks of Being a Wallflower? Let me know in the comments!
