This Week's Reviews:
A spoiler-free review of The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
A joint review of two new YA multiverse books, Relativity by Cristin Bishara and 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil.
A long-awaited (for me) review of This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales.
New Review Books:
Thanks, Harlequin Teen.
When I read that Michelle Rowan was going to revamp her July 2008 adult novel as YA, of course I went out and read the original! I'm excited to compare them!
What's new with you? Let me know in comments and leave me a link so I can visit you back. One of my weekend goals is catching up on comments!
Countdown looks good, hope you enjoyReplyDelete
It was fun!Delete
I've been seeing Countdown in practically everyone's book hauls lately. I hope you'll enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
Thanks so much! You too ;)Delete
Hmmmm I'll have to check out Countdown. I think I read the adult novel.ReplyDelete
My friend is having a nervous breakdown trying to get Endless Knight lol
As far as I can remember, they are pretty similar but the adult version is rated R while the YA version is more PG-13...Delete
Funny....I got an e-arc of Endless Knight. So I'm very excited to be reading that next. Countdown looks fantastic. Come visit me as well.ReplyDelete

I'll be by tomorrow morning!Delete
Countdown sounds good. Can't wait to see what you think. Also, sorry about sucking on commenting this week. :)ReplyDelete
Ahh… I've been terrible too. I've been so busy this month.Delete
Oh I didn't know Rowan was doing that-interested to see how it turns out. My weekend, as I just shared, is about catching up on commenting since I had basically no time on Thursday and Friday. I probably need to write around 100 comments on these two days plus I'd like to read 4 books if possible (or at least 3.) I need more time!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I have a bunch of comments to catch up on too!Delete
How was the original one? I'm now tempted to go out and grab it before the YA version comes out.ReplyDelete
I read the original back in the spring, but they are pretty similar, except the adult version is way steamier….Delete
I'm hungry and really craving something fatty...on a book side, I'll be doing the YA Scavenger Hunt this year. Woot!ReplyDelete
I am always hungry. It's terrible!Delete
Michelle Rowen is a pretty versatile writer so I'm pretty excited to read her new project. Looking forward to your review!ReplyDelete
HAppy reading. :)
It was a fun book!Delete
I also received Countdown for review, I haven't read anything by her yet so I am really curious to!ReplyDelete
Happy reading, Jen! <33
She writes under a variety of different pen names, so you might have :)Delete
Countdown looks interesting.ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy Countdown! And I'm hopping to your review of This Song Will Save Your Life!ReplyDelete
My Haul: http://wwwthebookshelves.blogspot.com/2013/09/new-to-shelves-34-getting-off-slump.html
I just finished Countdown yesterday. Really enjoyed it. I had no idea that it was a revamp of an adult novel until I read the acknowledgements. I can't wait to see you compare the two. And I reviewed The Dream Thieves last week too! :) Great week!ReplyDelete

Countdown looks like an interesting book, it's been a while since I've started a new dystopian series. I feel like I'm that last lonely person who hasn't read The Raven Boys yet haha. Hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete

I read the new Countdown but not the original. I'd be interested in reading a comparison post to see what changes were made.ReplyDelete
AHHH! So excited for Endless Knight!!!ReplyDelete
