On My Shelf: This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1) by Victoria Schwab

On My Shelf is an awesome feature hosted by Teresa at Readers Live A Thousand Lives that anyone can join. The idea is to spotlight a book from your TBR shelf; it's a fun way to discuss books with fellow bloggers and, with their help, decide which books are must-reads... and which ones can wait a while longer.

On My Shelf is usually a Friday post, but we have to cut out early this week and we're getting a headstart on the weekend!

I got Our Savage Song last year, and I was reminded by the newly released sequel and conclusion Our Dark Duet that it was still on my shelf! I've seen this shelved as YA Fantasy, Paranormal, Science Fiction, and Dystopian...

Seriously -- I'm not sure which one of those it is, but we like them all! These lines from the synopsis of book two are what makes me think this series would be a perfect read for Mckenzie and me:

"Kate Harker is a girl who isn’t afraid of the dark. She’s a girl who hunts monsters. And she’s good at it. August Flynn is a monster who can never be human. No matter how much he once yearned for it. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost." 

I'd love for my fellow bloggers and readers to weigh in!

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)  Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity, #2)

Have you read This Savage Song? What are your thoughts? 
Do I drop everything and start reading -- or put it back on my shelf for later?

Hope everyone has a great weekend! See you next week!

  1. Perfect gif is perfect lmao. I have heard such wonderful things about this series so you are going to have to read it, figure out which genre it is, and then report back to me.

    1. Deal! I'm so glad to know you've heard such good things :)

  2. This is on my shelf too, and I really, really want to read it, as I enjoyed the Shades of Magic series so much. I am hoping to do a shelf-love month soon.

    1. Oh, that sounds great, Sam! Thanks so much for stopping by and weighing in :)

  3. I guess I never realized this could be considered fantasy/ SF or dystopian- I think I always assumed from the cover it was a contemporary. Interesting. I know it's really popular and now I'm quite curious. :)

  4. I'm not familiar with this one or the earlier book, but based on the blurb and the author I'd say it is well worth pulling down for a read soon. Enjoy your earlier weekend!

  5. Ohh, that one sounds like a great read. I can't wait to hear your thoughts about it once you read it Michele :)

  6. I loved This Savage Song! I have not had the chance to read Our Dark Duet but I definitely will make a point to do so in the coming weeks. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Michele!

    Have a wonderful weekend. =)

  7. Great covers! Haven't read either of these- but hope you get to read this one soon. They do sound intriguing.

    Happy weekend!
