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 this summer I’ve been working quite a bit to put away money for (hopefully) graduate school, but I’ve also been treating myself occasionally! This week I got two packages from my two favorite places (Nordstrom & Amazon) so it was a good week thanks to UPS.
Books I Bought:
I was SO excited to order this because The Raven Boys was my first five star read in a few months and I loved it! Although while I was waiting for this to come in the mail I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (review here) and it gave me such a book hangover that I haven’t quite recovered enough to start this yet. I’ve also heard that this book deals more with Ronan’s POV so I’m interested to see how that changes my feelings toward the series, and if Stiefvater will alternate the focus of each book to a different character.
I am beyond thrilled to read this, and purchased it immediately once I realized my local library system did not carry the book. It seems gritty, intense, and with a lot of good courtroom drama (which I learned to love from various Jodi Picoult books) and I have literally seen nothing but 5-star reviews for this book from bloggers I trust. I just wonder if it’s going to be hard to read, considering the subject matter.
Have you read any of these? If so, what did you think? Let me know in the comments!
