Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga where we share books we’ve bought this week. Find out more and join in here!
Hi guys! Only two books have been added to my shelf this week – but they’re both special ones.
Also, sorry if this one is short! I’ve been busy all day and I’ll hopefully have some time to rest and read after this post. So why have I been busy? I’ve been to a bookclub! We had some great chat about the book we read last month, Geekerella, and a lot of other YA.
We also looked through some books to read this month, and we ended up picking….
Mara Carlyle’s senior year is going as normally as could be expected, until—wa-bam!—fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc.
Katelyn is the first, but she won’t be the last teenager to blow up without warning or explanation. As the seniors continue to pop like balloons and the national eye turns to Mara’s suburban New Jersey hometown, the FBI rolls in and the search for a reason is on.
Whip-smart and blunt, Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it while trying to make it to graduation in one piece. It’s an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, hallucinogenic mushrooms, bloggers, ice cream trucks, “Snooze Button™,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you’ve ever heard from the President of the United States.
Doesn’t this sound like such a unique/interesting read? We all read the synopsis and didn’t even look at any others because this one appealed so much!
I then had a buy-one-get-one-half-price deal, and I knew immediately what I wanted to get. I’m sure most have you have now heard of the new Netflix sensation, which is based off this novel. I’m a sucker for a trend, and I want to join in…but read the book first. So that’s why I’ve finally bought this book (even though it’s been on my TBR for a while).
What did you buy this week?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
