Stacking the YA Shelves (August 19, 2012)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews hosts this meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets.

I added just two books to my YA stack this week.
I bought a paperback copy of Chime by Frannie Billingsley. I have heard good things about the book, like the opening sentence, love the cover, and recall the controversy when this book was nominated for the National Book Award. Now I just need to find time to read it!

I received Otherkin by Nina Berry for review. I won it as part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. It was published on July 31 and was part of the June batch at LibraryThing. I was starting to think that it had been lost in the mail. But I was excited to receive a finished copy of this book instead of an ARC. 

Has anyone read either of these? What did you think? What did you add to your stack this week?


  1. Nice! Haven't read those two but I hope you enjoy them!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I've had Chime on my pile since it came out -- still trying to find time. I like to read award books to find out what all the huff is about. I've got the impression that this is a "you love it or you hate it" kind of book. We'll see. Looking forward to your thoughts.

  3. I've heard good things about Chime too. Hope it lives up to your expectations!

  4. Two great books, I loved Chime when I read it and I have Otherkin to read. Happy reading!

  5. Well, I love some controversy, so I might check Chime out just because of it. LOL. Enjoy your new books. :)

  6. Hope you enjoy your books and can stop by My StS Post!

  7. Interesting reads. I think I'll check out Chime some time. :D

  8. Awesome haul this week! I've heard so many amazing things about Chime. I hope you enjoy your books!
