Stacking the YA Shelves (March 9, 2014)

Tynga of  Team 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.

Here is my haul for the week.

Print Books
I attended an author signing for Cecil Castellucci's new book Tin Star but bought Beige for myself. I bought a copy of Tin Star, which I read in ARC form, for my High School Media Center. 

After hearing so many good things about A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lord, I had to buy a copy for myself.
I had also heard good things about Half Bad by Sally Green and, when I wasn't chosen for an ARC at Penguin's First to Read, I ordered a copy. It arrived this week.

I also got my print copy of Storm Watcher by Maria V. Snyder. I got the Kindle copy last week and read the first few pages before returning to my review stack. 

Dragon Slippers, Dragon Flight, and Dragon Spear by Jessica Day George were Kindle Daily Deals this past week. I've read the books but donated them to my media center. Now I have convenient, Kindle copies for my re-reading pleasure.

Review Books
I got Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens through the Amazon Vine program. I'll be reading this one soon since it has already been released.

I got The Summer Invitation by Charlotte Silver from Macmillan. It will be released on May 20.
I also got On the Road to Find Out by Rachel Toor from Macmillan. This one will be released on June 10/

Shipwreck Island by S. A. Bodeen also came from Macmillan. It will be released on July 29.

What did you add to your stack this week?
