Throwback Thursday (31)

Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;

Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.

Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

This book I have heard mixed reviews on.  But it still caught my attention.  Yes it's a Young Adult read.  And my son has actually read it.  He did so last year for points in school.  And he tormented me about it too.  Knowing I hadn't read it yet, he would only so much to get me interested then when I started to question more he told me I just had to read it.  Little snot!  lol.  One of these days I'm going to get to it.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Romantic medieval fantasy from a debut author

Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight—she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug.

When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change. She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace—or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.


  1. I enjoyed reading Graceling so I'm pretty sure you'd like it too! I though the sequel/prequel Fire was excellent and I am looking forward to Bitterblue coming out as well! :-)

  2. I requested this at our library months ago and am still waiting as its a very popular read here as well. Here's hoping you enjoy it when you do get around to reading it.

  3. This one was boring and made me roll my eyes...and then I really liked Fire, so weird

  4. Mel - Thank you! And I didn't realize the next one was coming out soon. Cool! :) Thank you!

    Petty Witter - Oh, glad to hear it's a popular book. Hope you get it soon, and enjoy it. :)

    Blodeuedd - I remembered you saying this one was boring for you and that you loved Fire. :) I have Fire here as well. I do need to get to them one of these days. *sigh* Thanks!

  5. Oh I've been wanting to read this one too! I won it once on a blog, but it never made it to my door. :( Oh well, I'll read it one day! :)

  6. Melissa (Books&Things) - Sorry to hear the book never made it to you. :( I had to kid read it last year, and he just tormented me about it! Stinker that he is. ;) Hope you get it one day. :)

  7. This is one book that people have been recommending to me and I really should read it as well since the story is something very much right up my alley.

  8. StephanieD - Oh, I hope you get a chance to give Graceling a try. :) And enjoy it. THank you!
