Stacking the Shelves (July 1, 2012)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews is starting a new meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. She explains at her site and posts a Linky each week. 

I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will also discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

I got a copy of Wildwood by Colin Meloy after hearing wonderful things about it by a speaker at the Scholastic Reading Summit I attended this week. Pam Allyn said it was excellent; I decided to see for myself.

I got Bloodborn by Karen Kincy because I recently received the third book - Foxfire - for review. I have read Other which is the first book in the series and felt that I needed to read the series in order.
Outpost by Ann Aguirre is my lone review book of the week. I got this one from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. It will be published on Sept. 4 and is the second book in the series that began with Enclave. It is a dystopia.

I bought a copy of For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund this week because I had seen a number of good reviews and was curious about it. This one sounds like a dystopia too. This one will be the first book I have read by this author though others have been on and off my TBR mountain in the past. 
Last, I downloaded this week's two free audiobooks from SYNC. Jonathan Stroud's The Amulet of Samarkand was paired with Andrew Lang's Tales from the Arabian Nights this week. 

That was my week. What did you add to your stack?


  1. Nice! Karen Kincy's book looks interesting! Might have to look into that some day! Still need to read Enclave, but heard good things about it! It's on my TBR mountains!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I got For Darkness Shows the Stars this week, too! :) It's a dystopian version of Jane Austen's Persuasion, so if you liked that, You should like For Darkness Shows the Stars. Enjoy!

  4. I haven't read Enclave yet, but I hope to get to it this summer. And I'm very interested in that Peterfreund book too. Great stuff. Enjoy! My STS

  5. I like the covers of both Outpost and The Amulet of Samarkand. Still need to read Enclave.

  6. I'm about to start Enclave! Hope this one and the second are good. :)

  7. I'm looking forward to reading For Darkness Shows the Stars, too, and am curious to see how I like the author's style. Happy reading!
