My Shelf Monday: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book

Publisher: HarperCollins


After the grisly murder of his entire family, a toddler wanders into a graveyard where the ghosts and other supernatural residents agree to raise him as one of their own.

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod’s family…

Where did I get it from?

A used bookstore downtown!

Why did I get it?

I’ve heard some wonderful things about this book, and it’s another Neil Gaiman that I feel like I should be reading.

Have I read it?

Yes ||| No

Why haven’t I read it?

I want to read it, but there are other books that I just want to read more!

Where is it on my TBR?

Again, not too far down, but not too far up, either. A little below Good Omens, though.

My Shelf Monday is a weekly post on my blog in which I discuss one of the books/series that I own. It’s a way to catalogue my book collection, and it also acts as a slow, miniature tour of my shelves.

Thanks for reading!
