From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.
I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!
This week, I'm going to showcase Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices - Manga edition)!
I only received this book a week ago but I'm a little confused about when to read it! Though I do own a copy of the regular text version of Clockwork Angel, I haven't read it yet - so I'm not sure whether I should read that before I try the manga or simply just dive straight into the manga version. I've never read a graphic novel before so it's going to be a new experience for me when I get around to it!
